Sketchy Sunday

This could be the start of a new(?) hashtag. My appreciation for sketches has seriously amplified since entering the professional world. I've always loved the brainstorming process but sketching is a physical tracking system for ideas. I've gotten way better at knowing when I have/haven't pushed far enough in to my brains for the unique solution. Here are some sketches from one of the logos on my Marks & Logos page: Box Joint. Mo' gridded sheets mo' better.

A New Type of Swagger

I am so missing taking classes at CCSF. A year ago I took a Typography class to refresh my knowledge and revive my appreciation for lettering, kerning, leading, and tracking. Within this class I had the opportunity to participate in educational group crits with a very diverse class. Yes it certainly felt good to already have background knowledge and experience using type to convey an idea, but I learned so much more the second time around from my passionate teacher, and my curious, focused peers. Experiencing type through someone that truly loves it, loves interpreting it was worth every penny and extra hours of work, after work. We even got time on the Vandercook! I didn't have time to manage coaching, work, and class last fall so here's to more and better juggling in 2017.
