Recent Work: Inferno Book Cover
This past November I dove at the chance to learn from one of my favorite designer-people, Jessica Hische. She launched an online class via Skillshare called Lettering for Designers: One Drop Cap Letterform at a Time. This was a very fun project, and gaining insight into Jessica’s process was invaluable. The assignment: to choose a book you recently read, and use the first letter of the author’s last name as a basis for a lettering cover design. My result is less a lettering piece than an illustration, but it brought me into new territory stylistically and that was a nice surprise.
Whew. I’m back in the Pacific Northwest now after almost a year abroad. Thought I’d take a little breather here, because really all those Thai signs every day for 3 months was a bit overwhelming right ?
I’ve returned from my travels even more obsessed with signage, type and lettering. My friend Amy collects vintage match boxes (with beautiful vintage matches included) and I was blown away by the beauty of this fully stocked Ohio Blue Tip Matches box.
