    uniE621 Cliche Word Patterns Set in Caslon Egyptian (Wallpaper Tile)
    Caslon Egyptian is, hands-down, my all time favorite sans-serif. I put this together in a series I was doing with fun type and the swiss color pallette. This is a wallpaper made of cliche words. You can see it scaled differently here: https://www.twine.net/signin (unfortunately, I can't upload galleries to these twine projects)WW
    uniE621 Lettering | Bob Dylan Quote
    “And it dawned on me that I might have to change my inner thought patterns…that I would have to start believing in possibilities that I wouldn’t have allowed before, that I had been closing my creativity down to a very narrow, controllable scale…that things had become too familiar and I might have to disorient myself.” // Bob Dylan I know I’m not the only one to find inspiration from the _nitch account. Go ahead and give them follow. Especially liked this Bob Dylan quote this evening and made a thing. #graphicdesigner #illustrator #designerWW
    uniE621 Wild Things Bar
    A mashup of Maurice Sendak’s “Where the Wild Things Are” and Cassius Marcellus Coolidge “Dog’s Playing Poker”. Initially started out with some kind of play on Where the Wild Things Are like Where the Mild Things Are, potentially just showing the characters wearing suits in a portrait. A testament to wildness, even in the midst adulthood and attempting to function in a well-adjusted manner in society. #illustrator #graphicdesigner #designerWW
    uniE621 Sketch | Jeff Goldblum Quote
    I love me some Jeff Goldblum. I can’t find the Cooking with Jeff that features Jonathan Gold for some reason, but that one’s my absolute favorite. Anyway. I’ve been listening to some of his jazz stuff on Spotify lately I’ve also recently came across some Palette Gear, so I needed something to practice my set up with. In honor of Jeff and Jazz. #graphicdesigner #illustrator #designerWW
    uniE621 Did you just say Cauliflower to me?
    My dad and brothers went on our annual father/son retreat. We usually screen a film in the evenings on these outings. This time, when Evan and I heard the other fellas hadn’t seen Steven Soderbergh and Rebecca Blunt’s “Logan Lucky”, we knew we’d had a winner. While there are a number of endearing scenes of dialogue in the film, nothing beats the way Adam Driver says, “Cauliflower”. And so, in honor of the inciting incident in Logan Lucky, the following “Did you say Cauliflower to me?” tribute was born. You can find the full post here: https://www.twine.net/signin We did make the t-shirts and sold about a dozen of them.

    uniE621 Swiss Color P-words set in Poynter Old Style Display
    This an a few more images at https://www.twine.net/signin (I wish twine would let me upload more than one image to this project gallery...) In an effort push my usage of color into new territory, I began to re-read Josef Alber’s Interaction of Color. For a number of years now I’ve really enjoyed going to swiss colors for inspiration. I’ve found that if I try coming up with color schemes like this on my own, I tend to be overly critical of highly saturated and contrasty schemes and eschew them for more monochromatic desaturated schemes. Having schemes to pull from that I already like before diving in can really help me feel more confident. That’s what this project stems from, pulling color schemes I already like and using them in random comps to help myself get more comfortable using them in the wild. As soon as I saw these comps set in Poynter Old Style Display, I could tell it was a match made in heaven. #designer #typographer #typography #brand #branding #graphicdesignerWW
    uniE621 YEAH | Fun with Ambigrams
    While doing a sketch earlier this week, I realized something about a particular set of “yeah”s: It reminded me of a cover from when the 20th anniversary edition of The Princess Bride... The title is what’s called an ambigram. An ambigram is a form of typography which allows for one word to be read in a number of ways, usually reading the sample upside down. Looks the same turned either way. It was a fun little project for a Saturday afternoon, anyways. You can see the full post here: https://www.twine.net/signinWW
    uniE621 Counters in Typography
    This was an exercise from some design classes I taught in the 2010's. You can find the full post here with lots of examples of Garamond counter studies: https://www.twine.net/signin Here's an excerpt from the post: "In the Helvetica Documentary by Gary Hustwit, there is this section around the 20 minute mark where they discuss what made Helvetica so particular and recognizable. “When you talk about the design of The Hass Neue Grotesk, or Helvetica, what its all about is the interrelationship of the negative shape, the figure ground relationship, the shapes between characters and within characters with the black, if you like, with the inked surface. And the Swiss pay more attention to the background so that the counters and the space between characters just hold the letters. I mean you can’t imagine anything moving it is so firm. It’s not a letter that’s bent to shape, its a letter that lives in a powerful matrix of surrounding space. Oh, its brilliant when its done well.” – Mike Parker, Director of Typographic Development for Linotype 1961-1981. Ever since hearing this a few years ago I’ve never paid closer attention to the negative space of letter forms, in particular, the negative space of counters. Any letter that leaves negative space completely enclosed by the letterform has a counter. Counters are what I focused on for this project. These letters would include Aa, Bb, Dd, g, Oo, Pp, Qq, R, and a few numbers like 4, 6, 8, 9, and 0. The Capital P in the example below doesn’t have a complete counter, but that’s only unique to Garamond and a few others, they usually do have counters. I thought Garamond was a great choice for playing with counters because it follows the same principle of negative space directing the shape of the letterforms, but its counters are much more organic and recognizable when separated from their positive counterparts. Let me show you what I mean..."WW
    uniE621 Francis Hand | Custom Font
    A font I made as a part of a commission project. The client had a business where they sold framed art of hand-lettered poems. The artist who did the lettering passed away, but they wanted to continue to make new pieces as well as translate them into Spanish and French. That's how Francis Hand was born. You can see the full project with samples of the previous art and some of the new translations using this font here: https://www.twine.net/signin #graphicdesigner #illustrator #designerWW
