Just received an email saying that four of my logos were selected for the next publication oflogolounge! —– Over 34,000 logos were entered for consideration. The book is published by Rockport Publishers and will be released in February of 2011. The logos that were selected were Rise & Shine Bakery, Motherhood Later, museummomentum, and FREEZE.
Some great photos done by Clark Mishler of the event. Cute photo of Sarah and Charlee – No. 6 and a nice one of the dress No. 69. Too bad Charlee got a bit tired … will have to get some photos of her in her dress.
Just recently announced – Alaska Design Forum has received the 2010 AIA (American Institute of Architects) Collaborative Achievement Award. A very cool honor to be listed amongst previous winners such as Metroplois magazine, Chicago Architectural Foundation, etc. The ceremony and panel will take place at the national conference in Miami in June.
Putting final touches on my entry into object runway. It is definitely in the experimental category. & (ampersand) is playing with uniting forms, in a graphical, sculptural way. This event is definitely going to sell out — buy some tickets now for the event on Sat, Feb. 6.
The first part of February, a new delicatessen will be opening in mid-town. A extensive menu with all the things of a new york deli — even matzo balls and loxs. I am working on environmental graphics right now … those will be installed after the soft opening.
I am happy to write about typekit – a new subscription-based service for using open type fonts for websites. It is really incredible. I know in some cases you can do this using flash — but let’s face it — if you use your iphone like I do, this does not work. Typekit can use any type from leading foundries. Look at this .. I am highlighting all these HTML based characters!!!! I think I might just start enjoying designing web pages again….
I am getting my sewing machine warmed up … and working on some sketches for this very fun event happening in February. I guess the judge is from this season Project Runway – Christopher Straub. I don’t have a tv … so I have never seen the show. I think type will definitely be involved in my little piece. I am looking for a model though …. THE CHALLENGE IS TO MAKE WEARABLE WORKS OF ART. CLOTHING SHOULD FIT INTO ONE OF THE FOLLOWING CATEGORIES/THEMES: • IMPRINT (use magazines, newspapers, newspaper bags... Read The Rest →
Up at the IGCA is an exhibit on the berth happenings back in September. The first Friday event had lots of performances. Michael Gerace did a good job of putting it all together! I did not put up the ladder again —- the ladder looks much better at a distance than close up. There are a few photos of it in the exhibit. It will be up for the entire month.
Artists at Play is an exhibit that just opened at the Anchorage Museum. It a companion exhibit to Science in Toyland. My piece took a lot to build —- lots of lite brite pegs …. there were TONS of children creating designs at the opening. I have to check out this week how it is holding up. And take some pictures of it with the illumination.
I am working on a little mobile type sculpture to fill our ten foot wall space. The top will use an old bike rim and rotate. Letters will be clustered onto it — and revolve. I am hoping to have it done in a week or so. Stay tuned.
