back in action…

and hard at work!

Behold…the first ads released for the up and coming Southwest Journal Home Improvement Fair.

I’m in the process of creating a system of posters, spec ads, web animations and other print collateral for the Spring 2010 Home Improvement fair. We decided to go a different route this year…power tools and raw materials-using a bit of a throwback to wood-block poster design and wood burning. This was my first stab at creating ANY version of web-applied design, and it’s even got a spot of animation! (I know it’s just a Gif, but gimme a break, I’m a print guy…)

The ads can also be found here.

Pulau Ubin

Now a tourist destination for Singaporeans, you can find off-road biking, mangrove swamps, dense forest and wild fruit trees (including Durian, Rambutan(pictured) and Mangosteen.

A great day of cycling, local color and beautiful scenery.

A Geotypografika inspired post:

A bottle cap sketch.

A similar example of Erik Brandt’s findings in Human Rebranding, though it may just be a replacement of the original Toyota lettering.

Finally, a very intimidating rabbit-with pipe. Located in Haw Par Villa.

Terima kasih!

Recent Acquisitions

DSCF4733DSCF4739DSCF4742DSCF4743DSCF4744I came across this set of Our Pocket-Books of Knowledge in a bargain-bin of sorts at a used book store in Kampong Glam (Arab Quarter). They were printed in 1969 and put out by the Times Educational Company of Malaysia.

I couldn’t find the whole set, but i’m keeping my eyes peeled.

Koh Phi Phi, Thailand

An unbelievable side trip taken to Koh Phi Phi, Thailand with The Parents, who were so kind to pay a visit!

Long tail boats, pristine beaches, wildlife, native village, authentic thai cooking and snorkeling.
