Birthday Invite

I wanted to make an invite for a birthday party I was putting together and ended up with this. For the record, the party didn't happen. I had to cancel after our babysitter got Covid and we couldn't find a new one. Bummer.

Minimal Alphabet

The other night I wanted to see if I could design a type face as minimally as possible. Starting with a base rectangle and seeing how I could distinguish each letterform with as few visual cues as possible. This was what I cam up with in my first 2 hour pass. I see a few things I'd maybe have done differently now, but as a thought experiment I think it shows what's possible.

I know more than a few people have tested their own minimal fonts/typography against the word minimum as well because of the similar letterforms so I thought it was a good test for this as well.

Clothes & Clothes Sans

Over the past month I've been developing a pair of complementary fonts titled "Clothes" and "Clothes Sans." I wanted to do something that was completely hand drawn because It's an area that I know I need to practice more. I use vector as a crutch with illustrations and wanted to get out of my comfort zone.

Now That You’re 21

I was listening to one of my favorite albums from when I was in high school (Midwestern Songs of the Americas by Dillinger Four) and remembered how much I loved this one song. I decided to practice some typography based on a few of the lyrics.

Beyond Nike

Just doing a little bit more lettering on my iPad because it had been awhile. Wanted to try combining a few different styles to see how it would come out.

Not loving how the DO fits in with the rest of it even if I like how it came out independently. Do like how the IT fits into the swash of the k though.

Nilza Name Art

My friend Nilza was hanging out last night and I started playing with her full name (first + last) in Procreate on my iPad. I customized the Nico Roll brush that's built in so that it doesn't fade out at the start and end of the stroke, which is the first time I've ever customized a brush in Procreate.

Beach Boys Poster

This lyric has been running through my head for the past few days, feels appropriate for everything that's going on in the world.

Shower Sans on Reddit

I posted Shower Sans on r/Graphic_Design and it became the top post with over 2,500 likes. Additionally, of all the up and down votes on Reddit so far, it was up-voted 98% of the time, which is pretty crazy (at least to me).

Shower Sans

The other day I noticed a hair in the shower that looked like a fancy J. I decided to try and make an entire font out of it.

Introducing, Shower Sans.

I made a book

Working with Sunita Deshpande, I helped create an illustrated alphabet book. Originally it was for my nephew's second birthday, but enough people wanted copies that we are producing a first edition on our own. Find out more here.

Truth Hurts

I'm from Georgia, where the current Governor is an idiot who is reopening the state before COVID-19 has been handled and thus putting people's lives at risk. He also stole an election by striking hundreds of thousands of voters from the rolls as Secretary of State just before the election. Given all that, I made this.
