This is Law Humor?

I'm told that this is very funny to lawyers. It doesn't get many laughs in my crowd. During my wife's first semester of law school, the mentor for her section (excuse me if I'm using the wrong terminology) asked if anyone could help with a t-shirt design for the softball league. As is often the case, ...

I am an incomplete Mastermind

It's hard to believe I did this two years ago. That was right after I got my first iPhone. The whole reason this came about was because there was no good, true-to-the-original version of Mastermind in the app store. Some looked the same, some were wildly different. Some had new rules, some didn't use all the ...

FG SQUARED 15th Anniversary

Here's a fun (albeit lengthy) blog post I wrote on the FG SQUARED blog about how design has changed over the last 15 years. Here's a sample: Looking at websites in 1994, you saw a lot of default grey backgrounds, Times New Roman and blue underlined links. Any images were dithered 256-color GIFs and typically ugly ...

Oops! Sorry for the Downtime

Hectic and scary morning when I realized that I had inadvertantly deleted the Wordpress database on my site. I had tested out an install of drupal and after I decided I didn't need it at the moment, I deleted the database. And all the others as well. Oops. The worst part is that I didn't even ...

Another Ambigram

I created another ambigram, this one for my friend Ethan Russell. He has a site, Fallen Gaia, that needs a logo and wanted an ambigram, and who wouldn't really? I don't think his site is live yet, but I'll try to remember to link it here when it does. (UPDATE: Fallen Gaia) Ambigrams are fun to ...

Adobe Illustrator Web 2.0 Styles

I found myself making glossy buttons in Illustrator so often that I finally decided to make a library of graphic styles so i won't have to do it over and over and over again. So here it is to share, just in time for the glossy Web 2.0 button trend to come to an end. One ...

Magazine Article About Flatstock

I'm mentioned in an article about Flatstock at SXSW. Check it out, page 40. It was written by Patrick Nichols, who somehow made me sound extra smart. Thanks, Patrick! I really do love screenprinting. I took a serigraphy class in school and had a blast with it. I was just starting to experiment with using the ...

Ambigrams. Get yer ambigrams here.

Wired has a pretty interesting article on ambigrams this month. I've always been fascinated by these things. Ages ago I got a John Langdon (he updated his site recently) book from the library and started making my own, which all pretty much sucked. I'm more confident nowadays though. I created an ambigram for Norah, my daughter ...

Meave is One Badass MF

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CHNFU_3VWDU Gabriel Martinez Meave is one of the new type gods. He's an incredible calligrapher, but his type design is really fresh and unlike most everything else out there. He also happens to be a fantastic illustrator and seems to be a good designer, although I've seen less of his design to verify. I'm pretty confident ...
