Type on the Street

Happened across this over the weekend. Turns out it's right in my neighbourhood! Sadly, it's not filled with printers, letterpresses and woodtype.

Recent Work: Last.fm's Best of 2009

Just before Christmas, I put together a custom newspaper for Last.fm's Best of 2009. Despite a very, very tough print deadline (the entire project was completed in four and a half days!), I'm really pleased with the results. Much thanks to the crew at Last.fm for the opportunity to work with them and their truly awesome data.

Check it out below. Especially that wicked infographic that makes up the centre spread!

Recent Work: Camera Obscura

I was thrilled to be invited to contribute an illustration for the Hype Machine's 2009 Zeitgeist. With Camera Obscura as my chosen artist, I sketched out a couple of different ideas and ended up creating some custom type that played off of the Pulp/Horror sound of their name.

I'm really pleased with it, particularly because I had a great time drawing the hashmark letters for the word "revealed", even if they're a little small in the illustration.
