Let’s get political and design a Poster (is a actually rip-off the original “keep Calm and Carry On) …

For Casseroles Night in Canada, I decided to contribute with a Poster.

Fantastically Beautiful is actually a dream I had.
In my dream I remember colours and shapes, and the thing that impacted me the most that morning, was the only two words in the poster: “Fantastically Beautiful”. I needed to design that poster and materialize a vivid dream. Once I started, I found it imposible to use any type that could match that image in my head; I had to design a custom type.

The type is called fantastically and it was designed on something I remembered but couldn’t express instantly, neither verbally or graphically. A couple of sketches and the whole type was born on one concept. It was never easy but it felt natural, I would say supernatural…

Please note that these are not keyable fonts, they are vector files on illustrator. Each letterform need to be hand set and composed.

The only thing I ask in return is to see how you used it and a mention if possible.

Enjoy!


The Type Bike alias the T-Bike

This was an idea I had 3 years ago and never had time or money to start. Finally after almost a month of work I see my project come to life. Building a bicycle from scratch is a lot of work but fun, I had a little bit of help from the guys at iBike.
I have to say this is the most confortable bike I have ever tried. A little bit on the heavy side but fits perfect and handles great, solid.
