Currently Working On…Alphabet Cards + IDSA Shirts

I’m still working on IDSA shirts when I’m not President anymore?! Not exactly! The current officers are doing a ‘shirt contest’ for this years iDSA shirts and I submitted one design (so far). As I said before, I was working on creating I, D, S and A out of objects and I think the final result is pretty nice.


And some progress on the beginning of the ‘designer tools alphabet cards’. I’ve been steadily researching and writing out different things that make letters (which, to be honest, probably looks like crazy-person-talk if you don’t know what I’m doing because in no way does ‘olfa’ = ‘i’). There’s a printing place near by, Prima, that does cards that are the size I want (something in between 2″x3″ and 4″x6″) but I haven’t talked to them about doing small runs of different images yet. Yesterday I bought myself a rounded corner punch so that I can design the outlines, etc. better.

Here’s my super awesome ‘Ii’ card so far:
That snapped off blade is really clever, right? Right.
More to come! As always!

PS. any constructive feedback on either design is very welcome!

Inspired: Objectified

I’ve started a personal project inspired by this poster for the movie Objectified: A Documentary Film by Gary Hustwit. The poster was designed by Build and I love the way they make letters out of objects (not a fresh idea, per-say, but always a great one when executed well).

*As an aside, if you haven’t seen Objectified, I highly recommend it. It’s a fascinating documentary about – duh – objects. If you’re a designer, it is an easy and interesting way to explain design to your friends/family – and if you’re not a designer, it’s still fascinating because of all the interesting concepts that are brought up (i.e. the relationship of cars to their owners)

I’m working on two different ‘alphabets’ – one made of famous designs (like the Panton chair making an ‘S’), and one set of letters made of tools used to ‘design’ (various tools and crafting objects, etc.). I already have the letters I, D, S, and A done because I put them together for a t-shirt competition for this year’s IDSA @ GT.

Progress will be posted ASAP 🙂
