“All of my collages are composed by hand — cut from books I’ve been collecting for years, and painstakingly pieced together as seamlessly as possible. They create themselves through a process beginning with a loose concept, followed by a series of trials and errors, subtle maneuvers, selection/elimination, harmonious unions, and happy accidents. It is a meditative process, and there is a lot of decision-making behind each element involved.

My general intent, throughout all my work, is to portray the world as a flawed thing of beauty — a place that shines brightly, but has a dark side to match.”

Mucho out of Barcelona recently updated. Thanks for the email.

If you need a little break from all this serious design, head over to Friends of Type where this week they’re hosting a lettering battle between 5 talented gals and 5 talented gents.

Gratuitous Type #1

29 March 2011

My first post. Let’s hope I do this right.

I received a nice little surprise in the mail by the name of Gratuitous Type. If you haven’t heard or seen this little type focused magazine by now, well… uhh I’ll show it to you, because it’s that beautiful. Look for it in the TSA Bookshelf soon.

Fonts In Use

21 February 2011

Fonts In Use showcases “type at work in the real world.” The site is organized into industries, formats, and typefaces and each entry dives into more detail about the font(s) and its use on various materials. It’s grown quite a bit since I last checked and is shaping up to be a very useful resource. It has also been added to our Creative Resources section, under “Type.”

TYPEFORCE is an annual showcase of emerging “typographic allstars” held in Chicago. The exhibition is brought to us by Firebelly Design and Public Media Institute. This year’s poster was generously donated by superduo, Nick & Nadine from Sonnenzimmer. Also happy to say one of our own, Jarred Kolar, will be featured at the show.

Takes place Feb 18 – Mar 7 (opening night on the 18th at 6pm). Held at Co-Prosperity Sphere.
