Design your own (display) font

13 Mar

My friend gave me this fun site that lets you design your own typeface and its quite simple to do. I haven’t really made anything worthwhile yet. I have six courses right now. That doesn’t give me a lot of time to do other things besides school work. Anyways have fun looking at the gallery.

Art of the Title Sequence

Maybe you’ve seen this, maybe you haven’t but I love this website. The title says it all. 🙂 Entertaining and inspiring. I got distracted by this.

Art of the Title Sequence

Fred Eerdekens

This artist completely amazes me. Last semester, I did a project on him and he’s become one of my favourites. He creates messages  by manipulating object and light to create shadows that show the messages. I just can’t say enough how much I love his work. I would love to be able to experience some of his work in person. I don’t think it does it any justice with photos.

Click here for his website to read about him and see more of his work!
