This week’s sketch. Rey Café (coffee) -inspired type playtime. Kind of fake street art like.
A quick sketch in honor of Friday the 13th. Please enjoy your day/mamonchinos.
Some recent snaps from projects in San Francisco. And a big bit of bearish street art from Market and 6th at the gateway to SoMA. Happy summertime from the Phase Collective.
A very structured but very creative experimental typeface project, with a great result. Restrictions lead to new and interesting things. Thrown down by Nello Russo at behance.net/nellorusso
Japackatype is another years-old type project from Gabe Ruane – hand cut packaging from Japanese food products, glued down over a Doubledagger typeface template, photographed, and cleaned up in Photoshop.
Hadn’t broken away from the computer in a while, so I pulled out an old magazine, shredded a few pieces, cut a few pieces, and glued it all down. Of course it comes back in to the computer and gets tweaked up a bit. Just a bit though. Sometimes a quick (and otherwise pointless) side project is the perfect fix.
Able Parris is a collage artist and typographer doing some really cool crossover design/art work. Nice identity portfolio too. He’s all over the internet, but you can start at his Cargo site and take it from there:
Mixed-media art from Maximus Balder. Picardie, France – found on the Gestalten Blackboard. Really cool layered artwork weaving in typography, commercial/design stuff… all found-imagery, as far as I can tell, and the resulting compositions have a rich design&type-infused feel to them.
Site and info is here.
Just posted a couple sets of iPhone wallpapers, including some stuff from the never-published Phase04 Habitat PDF mag. Also threw in some Midei City stuff, and some work from my in-progress side project called ‘Upload’. Head over to the link below for downloads, and enjoy:
