Sometime you just need to see an awesome typeface to realize how awesome type can be. Just take a look at stuff at dafont.com and try and tell me that they even come close to this beauty entitled Galaxie Copernicus, of the extremely attractive Galaxie family. This one is new for '09 and is only available at Vllg.com.
All about: Funeral Mist-"A New Light" and "Blessed Curse", Ameseours-S/T, Orange Juice Isis in general, Pretty much everything.
After all of that work, we posted our lovely posters on the wall for a big show. There were some nifty pieces on the wall, and the progress everyone has made since last semester is apparent. I quite liked a few of them. It's a good crew we got going in this communication studio class, I'm proud to be a part of it. My poster was chosen along with Cole's, Robyn's, Stephanie F's, among others to be shown in the little gallery, so I am super stoked to have that happen! All in all I'm happy to have it be done, and I eagerly await the next project...but for now I await a smooth trip to the mountains with some of the best dudes out there.
I'll post pics as they become available.
Totally Into: Let the Right One In (awesome vampire flick), Bat for Lashes-"Glass", Mastodon, Beer, Mellowed out weeks, and Trip to Lone Pine, Gospel-"The Moon is a Dead World"
"Ahhh"....the sounds of sighs after a long week of intense reformatting and layering has lead me to the promised land. My poster is complete and I am quite happy with the results. I can't even count how many versions of this that I have done, but this one is by far the best.
The past 24 hours were a disaster of emotions as I could not manage to make my file small enough to print. It wasn't until a few hours ago that I magically fixed it after consulting various possible experts and internets.
All In all, I am done, and ready to work on whatcould very well be a hundred page process book. This project was by far one of my favorites,as all of the exploration and sheer work level was extremely fruitful. I became better at photoshopand my vision was widened to crazy un-paul things like flowers, feminist novels, intense usage of space and humanist sans-serif type (Hermann Zapf's "Optima" was used on this poster).
I hope you all, whomever you are, enjoy it or at least can see remants of all of the hours that was put into it.
Relief: Mastodon "Sleeping Giant", Broadcast, The Greyhound (drink), Orange juice and a great sense of completion.
So here is the finished spread for my drawing class. Again, I'm not into my hurried watercolors but whatever. Also, the fact that the title is on the right bugs me...although it does add to the cohesive nature of things. So that is that.
Around the bend: Mastodon-"Diviniations", Robert Bringhurst "The Elements of Typographic Style", Hermann Zapf's Optima typeface, Watain.
The poster project is coming to a close next week, so i am frantically trying to make this thing happen in a fashion that works for all involved. I used this absolutely killer poster by Josef Muller- Brockamann as a launch pad and went from there.
Not quite there yet, but a few more hours of moving stuff around and we will get there, I can see it.
In orbit: Broadcast-"Tender Buttons", Junior Boys-"Begone Dull Care",waiting for packages in the mail, Gorguts- Obscura, Awaiting the Opeth/Enslaved show in May, Fujiya and Miyagi live, haircuts all around, no rain.
