my prob is that i'm a HUGE fan and creator of graphic design, i just didn't realize it until last week when i started getting shit together for a website.  meaning, that i make shit all the time: album covers, logo's, background images, etc...it's just that i never make them just to make them, they always have some sort of functional purpose.  so as of now i don't really just have art that's been created for art's sake even though i'm sure i could build up a series if i wanted to (which i do)...so yeah, stay tuned STMB.

Chasing some ass.



Here is something I did a few months ago. For nothing in particular. There was some consideration to use it as a company logo but ultimately now it's just something nice to look at. I don't like the font tho. It's the right style, but not the right one. Curse you dafont.com!

I am part of a company that produces mobile entertainment. We were considering going in a more refined direction than our initial playful direction. Ultimately, we decided to stay in the playful spectrum. And this, was just a good exercise for me.

anybody know how to create customized typefaces?

 

i've been experimenting with hand-drawn versions of what i want, and i think i'm just going to replicate it in Illustrator or something since it's very simplistic and geometric to begin with...but from what i've researched i'd need to buy InDesign to anything as complex as literally creating a typeface.

Creating typefaces is a bitch bro.... you gotta save and manipulate each letter to the keys and all that.

Ive done some, but they were very square, very basic. Just set up a grid and make sure you follow along. Your stems are so wide, etc. Just insure you follow the grid. Once you get into serifs tho, that shit is crazy detail. you have to make sure you are a pro for that.

Why does that remind me of Pee Wee Herman's Big Adventure?

It's got the desert, 60s Americanan feel it looks like.

agreed, I created one for this series of releases: http://www.discogs.c...s?release=45195

It was not an experience I'd choose to repeat.

Even the NME dissed my typography in it's review of the record (in the same sentence as the reviewer dissed Madlib's remix. Boo, hiss!)

 

some of the other sleeves I've done: http://www.discogs.c...78748-Tim-Berry

not a full list by any means and it's all old shit now anyway.

You should've just did that one by hand since everything else was hand done....

It would never have worked, there were 3 singles, with 8 or 9 versions of each for different mixes, different territories plus promos, I'd have got some serious blisters on my writing hand! It was a pain in the arse doing the typeface, but once it was all done it was worth it just be able to type out all those credits nice & easy, plus doing any changes/edits would have been a nightmare if it was hand drawn. Anyway i felt the sleeves needed the contrast between the smooth, clean typeface and the rough, hand-drawn illustrations.
