Life Is Short

SO today i stated up my SECOND blog! yes, thats right, i've gotten blog greedy. I noticed that i was posting a LOT of photos here, so in order to not dilute the work i do in graphic design, or my photographic work, i decided to start a second blog dedicated to my photos. So here it is, i hope you enjoy, and please check it as regularly as you do this one: Life Is Short

This is not my first post about Wim Crouwel and i don't imagine it will be the last. Anyway, i was browsing through looking for something to give me ideas for our current project (we're doing corporate identity) and i stumbled upon this little font called "Atmosphere". The eagle eyed and design savvy of you out there will notice that it is a copy of Wim Crouwel's famous "New Alphabet" - a must download, if you ask me. The even more sly of you out there will know why its called Atmosphere as well, if you do, tell me why in a comment on this post and the first correct answer will win a super fun extra special super prize.

on a completely unrelated note, isn't "Mellon Collie & The Infinite Sadness" such a class album? I only just got this...13 years after it was first released. I just got the new Fucked Up album recently too and it is fantastic, i also ordered the new Deerhunter today can't wait to hear that. Anyway, back to the graphic design...

New Work! Editorial Design project!

Well well well, here are the final pieces from the brief we've just completed for uni about Editorial Design. We had to do a splash (thats like opener) and a turn (what follows the splash, of course) spread, a front cover and a contents page. We were allowed to choose what the article was about and what kind of magazine it was. I chose to do an article about the photographer Terry Richardson (i'm a big fan) in a sort of dazed & confused-esque art/fashion/culture magazine. The tutors gave me incredibly positive feedback in the crit, so i guess it went pretty well. Oh yeah and i got a 78/100 (which is a 1st).

Mr Hellviper

my buddy Will is an illustrator of much radness, check out his blog. I knew this guy when he was a little kid, he used to be such a nice kid - what happened? Now he spends all day drawing these totally gnarly pictures of zombies and monsters and wizards and stuff like that. SWEET!
