So to just right back into it, a quick exercise in hierarchy and composition I created with LetterMpress, a fun app that imitates traditional letterpress techniques.
The lyrics come from Houdini by Foster the People, a fantastic song, and this statement makes for a great focal point.

Welllllll Happy 2011! Can't believe how quickly the first few months have already gone, but I have got lots to show and tell so i'll dive right in.
What we have here is a piece of decorative type inspired by my moon photography. It was designed a while ago as a possible book cover, but had to wait to get finished. Using Letraset Omnicrom sheets is ideal to give the image the silver shine I wanted it to have. It also has a grain quality that adds to the letter pressed look. I'm really happy to finally have it the way I want it! The Omnicrom sheets have added a bunch more ideas for projects (and a way to finish another), so I guess I should get going...

Completing the second lot of layouts is ∆˚¬…10•. I got nice of use out of the Craft Robo, it enabled me to make the gird and the rocket silhouette exactly how I wanted. This layout went through several incarnations before I could settle on this one, and i'm happy with the final look I have here.

Woodeye Furniture is a small company based in East Lothian specialising in bespoke furniture, kitchens and antique restoration.
I really enjoyed creating this piece and playing around with the typeface to make it unique to the brand. The furniture being produced has so much character, the logo is a continuation of its bold and distinctive style [really, this furniture is so impressive and has huge talent behind it].
I've done more reading than making recently so it was ace to get playing with type again. Gonna try and get more type work realised and up shortly!

Having passed half way on this project, I thought I should upload the latest numbersI I've collected. This project is taking it's time, and it's difficult to decide between different versions of numbers I find, but thats's the nature of the beast I guess.

Right then, My first post of 2010!
An isometric potrait of Two-Face from Batman The Animated Series. This started with a play around with some new graph paper and different levels of hatched triangles to create tonal compositions. Using the hatched triangles to draw Two-Face was a nice experiment and I think the style really suits the character, showing the disfigured side of Harvey Dent's face effectively.
