Not Much to say on this one. You either like hand printed sequined woodblocks or you don’t. Something satisfying about the amount of texture and detail in something so readable.
I love woodblock type. Bought a new typeface, a news gothic, from Ireland apparently. They didn’t have a ‘W’ so I got a free ‘!’. The Japanese ink has been mixed with cheap blue poster paint. Anyway, just look at … Continue reading
Named after the Akira Kurosawa movie, The Iggy Pop album and the Fyodor Dostoevsky book. Note the amount of variants, essential as the eye can tell very quickly if you duplicate the same letter. Made for a Japanese restaurant ident. … Continue reading
Called Frank after it’s inspiration the artist Frank Stella. Stella didn’t seem a good name. My 401st post. Wow.
Inspired by the play The Judas Kiss about Oscar Wilde and Bosie, I’ve created a pretty but aloof, uncaring typeface. Read more about Bosie here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lord_Alfred_Douglas
You know a night out is going to end well when the words ‘Experimental cocktails’ are used. KG & CT made the Let It Bleed cake for Pam. Nobody ate the record. I think. A fantastic cake / meal / … Continue reading
There was a commission for a Film Production company logo that called out for a unique typeface that said excitement, strength and Hollywood of the age of the silver screen. The visual ingredients that went into the letterforms were very … Continue reading

This came about around designing logos and packaging for clients. I wanted something feminine and modular, a typeface where letterforms interacted with each other but didn’t touch too much, keeping their readability. As for influences, there’s the First Roxy Music … Continue reading
Ok, here’s some woodblock type. I’ve experimented with different viscosities and media on the type. It’s a beautiful bit of craftsmanship, and most of the letterforms are near perfect for this Alternate Gothic style of font. Please ask if you … Continue reading
This font was based on the idea of the golden ratio. There is a lot of talk about how harmonious and downright pretty the ratio is so here’s my go at making a typeface from the ratio as a grid. … Continue reading
It’s reasons for being: Since 1986 I’ve been thinking about of Herbert Bayer’s ideas on a typeface that dispenses with uppercase and is more representational of the phonetics of speech all filtered through the bauhaus’s reductive minimalism. I’m doing some … Continue reading
I wanted a typeface on Friday. One that was spontaneous, exciting and bold. To go against all this computer led straight lineness – to be a bit electric guitar rather than slick programmed synth. In front of me was my … Continue reading
This year’s fete design has a bit of trad jazz and a dash of Magic Roundabout about it. I wanted to highlight the lace doily, slightly eccentric character you expect from a village fete.
