As a programmer who enjoys (but doesn’t have much opportunity to explore) code-driven creative design and animation, this speaks to me.
There’s a couple days left to take advantage of 33% off everything in our shop. All profit will be going towards an upcoming TSA project – thanks for the orders!
Just wanted to let everyone know I have a new website. After 10 years I’ve decided to drop the 33rpm alias. What began as a focus on music and design has now grown into so much more. Please enjoy the new site.
We got a nice email from Livia Foldes, a recent grad from California College of the Arts. Really interesting experimental type and book design on her site.
