For the past eight months I’ve been working on a layered typeface. It has been a fascinating and, at times, maddening process—so cool to learn more about latin-based alphabet systems and a bit heartbreaking to restart the design several times. I’m tentatively calling this guy Tobin which began with some cut paper letterform experiments. So to go full circle, here’s a few versions of Tobin’s A made from paper. Still a long ways to go, but the process has been so worth it. More soon!
THERE'S NOTHING LIKE A GOOD PLOT TWIST, ONE THAT ALMOST EDGES YOU OFF YOUR SEAT THEN 💥BAM💥 LUKE I'M YOUR FATHER (OR)
🙀GASP🙀 HE WAS DEAD ALL ALONG (OR)
💔OMG💔 HANS WAS ACTUALLY A BAD GUY AND THEY DON'T ACTUALLY FINISH EACH OTHERS SANDWICHES
BUT MY FAVES ARE THE ONES IN LIFE THAT MAKE YOU LOOK TWICE. LIKE WHEN YOU LOOK BACK AT SOMETHING THAT YOU THOUGHT WOULD BREAK YOU COMPLETELY, BUT DIDN'T. AND HERE WE ARE ON THE OTHER SIDE. FOOTPRINTS LEFT FROM CROSSING PARTED SEAS. SHEPHERD BOYS, PEBBLES IN HAND (FAITH IN HEARTS), GIANTS SLAIN. UNBURNT, IN THE FIRE.
SO WHEN THAT TIME COMES, AND I'M EVER SO AWKWARDLY WEDGED BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE - I REMEMBER...THIS COULD JUST BE THE PERFECT SET-UP FOR MY PLOT TWIST TO HAPPEN.
Happy Friday! Hope you guys haven't had as hard of a week as this guy 😂 "I loved my previous life. I had so many things going. This is more work than my previous life. I thought it would be easier" - #themotherfuckingpresident#potus 🇺🇸😂😭😭😭
