It’s AIGA RenoTahoe #Typewalk day!
Today’s postcard is a spin off of the artwork I produced for the event. I can’t wait for tonight. It should be a very fun social media experiment our chapter. You can follow the #Typewalk hash tag, check outFacebook event wall or see the final collection of letters by visiting the Reno Tahoe Chapters Flickrgroup.
The idea of the event is to explore the seedy underbelly Reno’s neon and street signage typography. Teams of two are to search out and spot the very best 26 letters of the alphabet represented in paint, print or in the glowing lights of Reno’s downtown. Once a letter is found, take a picture of it with your smart phone and then upload it, post it or tweet it! The goal is to have the most unique photos.We will then be taking the very best of each letter and making a limited edition poster of the alphabet.
Anyways, I am super excited for this event tonight and I encourage you to check out the final product tomorrow if you are unable to attend.
This one if for you Brian McMullen!
I was feeling a little burned out by the sayings, but I promise the hand drawn type will come back. With no type, comes back the illustrations and there is no better place to start than dinosaurs!
Meet Boris the Brontosaurus. He is drawn as a present to my old roommate and friend Brian McMullen who is now working for Uber in San Francisco. After hanging out with him for an evening for fun, I also got to see just how hard he works! So here is my little pat on the back Brian! When I started my project Brian made the request for a dino… so now 35 cards in he gets his dinosaur! Hope you are having a fabulous time in the city and Boris will be joining you soon.
