Typography


CREATIVITY TAKES COURAGE

I have a habit of getting words and phrases stuck in my head and this quote from Henry Matisse was one of them. Sometimes these words lead to nothing and sometimes they make their way into a design. This was done just about the time that the whole long shadow craze came in.


ILLUSTRATED LYRICS

Probably one of my all-time favourite bands is Thrice. As with most people music is a big part of my life, I wish I was more musically inclined but unfortunately, illustrating lyrics is as close as I get to contributing to the musical world. All of these mean different things to me but they meant enough for me to do something with them... This is the result.


STEPPING IT UP IN 3D

Being curious has lead to some exciting creative developments. While being fascinated with typography I only understood how to use it in a two dimensional format. I took it upon myself to learn Cinema 4D, a 3D rendering and animation program. After a while I got to play with typography in a completely different way. This project took one of my traditional 2D type pieces and played with it in a 3D space.
