Poster + Mailer in the works...

I am working on some ideas for a poster for an event at the Westcott House here in Springfield. The event is the opening of a show that features concepts for the development of the back lot behind the Westcott House. Miami University students have put together proposals. Some were based on the Froebel paper crafts.

This type direction is a reference to the paper weaving and the architectural plans kind of working together as space.

Bizarre Image Folder

I have been keeping an image folder on my computer for roughly seven years now. It's a place where I save any off image that I come across on the web. They range from truly bizarre to just interesting imagery.

Here are a few from the bizarre folder. This will be a weekly post from now on. Unfortunately I failed to site the sources of each image as I collected them.

Hucklebuck Vocab Spreads

These are a few spreads I did while in one of my grad school classes called Crossing Borders. It was a course in which we engaged in post-colonial discourse and so on. This was a project where we visualized terms from the semester.

Vintage Postcard Find

I went to the Springfield Antique mall today and bought a bunch of vintage postcards. This one stuck out to me. Maybe it's because I empathize with the bald dude. Pretty funny. from like 1915-1920 era.

My new nickname

Some more found type.

Latest find from the LOC

So I am a big historical type nerd and am always snooping around the Library of Congress' site for great type inspiration. I came across this little gem last night from 1881. Pretty incredible. Enjoy.
