Typography Tuesday #5

Here’s a black & white poster I did while thinking of the Occupy movement. I kept it just a simple black and white because I’m thinking of doing it as a silkscreen print. There’s been some talk of doing a benefit art show to help raise money for the local Occupiers here in KC.

Typography Tuesday #4

These are some buttons that I designed for Ink’s Ipad app. I’m not sure if its out yet to the public, but I think they turned out pretty well. I’m showing both buttons here oversized to show them off a bit. The small one with just the i will actually only be 29 pixels x 29 pixels only a little over a third of an inch square.  So I just used the i by itself so it will still be eye-grabbing, not some really little type that would be hard to read. I actually had to fight to get this OKed. I guess that’s why I thought of this for a typography post because sometimes you really need to explain why you made the type decisions you did even when people already agree it does look good.

Typography Tuesday #3

Graphic design and typography at its most basic and hopefully one of its most potent forms. People speaking from the gut on protest signs. These photos I shot while I was on the OccupyKC march on Sunday October 9th. To find out more about the cause and see more photos from the movement go to http://occupykc.com

Living In Style Illustration

Here’s my latest cover illustration for Living In Style. I like the blue, orange and red colors. It has a nice fall feel to it.

Typography Tuesday #2

Here’s a rework of one of my older illustrations. I think it works better with the type in the background.
