Poster for ARISE 2011

I designed this poster for ARISE 2011, an arts fair that my church holds every year. The prompt was: What does it mean to be Alive. If you're in Norwalk and feel like seeing it in person stop by 18 Knight St. (Church Office Location), from 6 to 9 p.m.

LetterMPress — Virtual LetterPress App

I got an email a few days ago from Bonadies Creative announcing the launch of LetterMPress on kickstarter.com. LetterMPress is a virtual letterpress for the iPad. It features authentic wood type and vintage art "cuts."


It looks like it's going to be great, and there's still time to help support the project.
