Back to Basics

I was at my in-laws' house this week. They were putting some old furniture out by the road free for anyone to take and they asked me to make a sign. Normally I would have fired up the mac and picked (insert your favorite condensed sans serif here), but I didn't have my computer—all I had was some paper and a sharpie. I'm glad that's all I had, I had so much more fun drawing the letters than I ever would have setting the type in Illustrator.

Michael Bierut is one of the designers I admire most. At Creative Mornings he spoke on designer-client relationships.


Some of my work outside of work

It's been a while since I've shared any of the projects from my SVA class. Below are two of the projects I did in Genevieve Williams' class.

Public Service Announcement Poster Series
The prompt: Take a local cause or event and design a series of posters.

My Idea: SONO Artsfest, Cure for the common weekend

The prompt: Research a topic that's important to you and create an infographic that reflects your findings


Variation on a theme

This logo done by Alan Fletcher for the Victoria and Albert Museum has always been one of my favorites.

The museum commissioned Troika to make sign for them. They created a moving sculpture from the logo—I don't think they could have done a better job. Watch the video it's well worth a minute or two of your time.
