Thoughts, updates and experiments.
Some things I make are not really a project, not really a sketch, not really a concept, and not really a product. Sometimes it’s just good fun.
I learned a lot from tracing pieces of lettering over the years, and that’s what you’ll see in Play – traced film titles and pieces of lettering from a variety of sources. It’s an itch I like to scratch.
It hit me very late in the process of making this site that I actually have some work to show to the world. So, a warm farewell to the old single-pager. Please welcome my new website.
Not only is it finally a clear overview of what I’ve made over the years, but it is also typeset entirely in my own work, which is equal parts neat and nerve-wracking. The type family, a collection of styles based on a sort of type-historic ‘what if’, is not yet complete, but what you’re seeing are a few of the most useful styles. I’ll write more about them when I have the opportunity.
Another important note to make is that the face logo, the little mustachioed guy with circular glasses, was drawn by my friend Sam, and it’s my favourite thing in the whole world.
Please try to be quiet. The site is still waking up. I’ll be adding some things that really need adding, so until I call it, it’s our little secret, okay?
