Rurubu

This hybrid project is a mixture of multiple mediums and exists thanks to the creativity and expertise of the ballet dancers/models Kathleen Legassick and Meaghan Silva and the Japanese calligraphy artist Nobuhiro Sato. This series explores multiple forms of artistic expressions in an attempt of collaboration to create beauty, movement and energy. There’s something about the sweeping gestures and graceful twists that make the slashes and splatters of hiragana and katana ink characters appear as a choreographed dance. We love this work, because it combines dance with type and expresses in a very artistic way the power of lettering. Enjoy it!

Do Not Open

Do Not Open is the personal project of Erik Marinovich, a letterer and designer based in San Francisco. Erik remembers the good old times when you wrote a letter with a pen to your best friend. Over the years he got shirts, books, posters and more stuff from his friends. As a reply he began mailing out oversized hand adressed envelopes with a note inside saying thank you.

Some the recipients posted their envelopes to their instagram feed to show it to the audience. Do Not Open brings something that was specifically available to friends and family to the general public. All of them are one of a kind and that makes them rare, unique and awesome. Enjoy this awesomness!

       Grove is a decorative, display script revival of Leitura Display Swashes by June Park, inspired by tropical botany. Each letter was hand-painted with acrylic gouache, taking 1-3 hours per letter, then scanned in to be digitized. It consists of pairs with similar features, such as B and H, G and J, K and R, etc. Grove is designed to follow the same editorial purposes as Leitura Display Swashes. It could be used for any botanical- or exotic-themed magazine article, titling, invitation card and product design for home goods.

"Inner Thoughts" is a collection of 12 greeting cards. These anatomical-themed cards each have a pun that goes with the organ part, and the puns convey messages that you wish to tell that special person but are sometimes too awkward or difficult to say in person. Inside the card is a little fun fact about the organ.

This is a collaboration I did with designer Miguel Yatco.

I illustrated the organs, and Miguel worked on the type.

Your Song

Antonius Bui has carved this song written by a friend into a amenable material. It’s fantastic how hearing becomes sight and words fly above the paper. In 2D vision with a direct sight on it, it seems like a simple text on a plain paper. But like the notes that are dancing to your ears, these quotes and lyrics are dancing to your eyes.
