EF - Live the Language
Lovely little video series by Albin Holmqvist. These screengrabs are from his Vancouver video for EF International Learning Centres.
These are three of my favourites from the Vancouver video, but to be honest the entire thing is beautiful, so do check it out!
What I do when I’m bored
Recently I’ve started to redraw the Gatecrasher typeface that TDR (probably) did for all their promotional work for the club. So far I’ve done all the letters I can do with the material I’ve been able to find, which is pretty much any of the promo material/discs/cd cases/vinyl covers and posters that I own and have found on Google. I’ve hit a snag though in that there is never really any capital letters used on the designs (thanks TDR and your love of lowercase stuff!) so I’m either going to have to second-guess the capital forms or look for any extra stuff I can get my hands on. I have a hunch that the wipeout typefaces TDR used will likely be made up of the same forms, as the typefaces don’t look too dissimilar from each other. I will be updating this blog over the next few days as a lot has happened over the last two months since my last post, so expect to hear more soon!
Oh, and just as a headsup, I won’t be releasing it to anyone except friends when I do actually get around to making this into a working typeface – just for copyright issues and whatever else might end up going balls.
Placement Review: MadebyShape
Recently I have completed a work placement at MadebyShape. During my time I worked with the team on a variety of projects, from designing the layout of an upcoming studio project - from research to final design stage, to working on character illustrations for a children’s sporting venture. Having never really done much illustration work in my time at college and university the experience was great! It proved to myself that I was capable of producing work of value in a different than my norm category.
The team are a great laugh and a really inspiring bunch, they answered any questions I had and gave me some great advice for moving along in this industry given the current economic status - they also kept me fed on a supply of crumpets!
A big thank you to Andy, Jason and Jamie for making me feel so welcome!
Really excited to see this More4 re-brand from ManVsMachine
