Harbor East’s Window Wonderland: The Unveiling Event
Harbor East at President & Aliceanna Streets
December 5 – 5:30-8:30 p.m.
Back in September, my good friend asked me if I wanted to collaborate on a proposal for the Window Wonderland (12/5) contest. So the flurry of brainstorming began… We found out several weeks later that we got it! We started planning more specifically for the Lebanese Taverna window. This was particularly a challenge for me as I normally work in 2D. It was so much fun to pull this together with Annie (please visit her website and support her!). Check out the teasers below! More to come!
Our window is at the center of this event. Come check it out! It will be up until January 2nd.
I just downloaded this… it looks awesomely dorky. A fun way to brush up on some typography history. I’ll post again in a week or two with a review.
More unique art: Doublefaced
This art is so creepy, but appealing at the same time. The portraits show some fun experimentation with just a simple idea. Very cool.
Here are the best 20 web fonts from Google. These are free and you’ll definitely find critiques of some of these fonts, but here are the 20 best according to AWWWARDS. Along with some handy instructions for @font-face embedding.
Saw this floating around the internet today, this is just fantastic! An illustrator draws faces and has her daughter fill in the body outline, then she colors them in. I’ve got to go enlist my little cousin’s help now…
These are just beautiful, so surreal and a great concept. I wonder if it started because her daughter drew on some unfinished illustration once…?
Not bad, still ‘whimsical’ like that other logo, but definitely more modern. Not a huge fan of the curved edges on the ends of the “YAH”, could be more subtle. But pretty good overall!
This is pretty cool, seems like a great UI, with a clean and exciting design.
Update! Making a goal to redesign, plan is to do so by summer. Let’s see how that goes.
In the meantime, enjoy checking out some sketches of the new Firefox OS identity from my favorite logo blog. Also! John Mayer’s new album is literally a work of art, mostly the album cover that is. Check out the making of it by David A. Smith who is a traditional sign designer specializing in amazingly ornate hand-crafted reverse glass signs and decorative silvered and gilded mirrors. His work is absolutely beautiful. The album cover barely does the actual work justice:
Happy New Year!
Before the holidays and the new year I took a screen printing workshop with a friend. It was a great time and fun to do some hands on art (which is one of my resolutions; do more art). We did photo emulsion screen printing on paper. I didn’t document the full process, but here’s the information if you’re curious on how I did it. So here are some fun photos of the cards I made along with a present for my boyfriend.
The Envelopes (each one is different)
Better late than never?
Here’s to more blogging!
