For much of my career I have taken a personal interest in typography. Sign painting and hand-done lettering drew me in initially but type as a whole has become a bit of a specialty and I spent many years helping companies develop typographic marketing initiatives. Below is a collection of highlights over the years.
Friendly folks from all over the bay area including HelpScout, Jack's Gap, IFTTT, Buffer and Purpl have enlisted my help for some really fun apparel graphics over the years.
Madison Glass Company
Madison Glass Co. was a brand I created while experimenting with sign painting. I have always been fascinated with hand-made ephemera and typography and this project was a culmination of that.
It started as a fun hobby where I would hand paint glassware with interesting phrases but it ultimately became too demanding and wasn't something I was interested in pursuing full time and so it was shut down.
I teamed up with a long time colleague Michael Spitz to develop a collection of Limited Edition posters featuring collections of completely original display typography. We each took a stab at designing a complete alphabet and numerical collection to combine them and be screenprinted in an edition of 200. They sold out very quickly.
Hamilton Wood Type
Orlando-based letterpress printer Mama’s Saucec created a cool design project to support the Hamilton Wood Type & Print Museum in their move to a new location. They teamed up with seven talented designers (A: Fuzzco/E: Justin Mezzell/I: Aaron Draplin/O: Dana Tanamachi/U: Jon Contino/&: Jessica Hische/Y: Ross Moody) to create a set of coasters celebrating A, E, I, O, U, & and Y.
I was very fortunate to design a few typographical treatments for the Radpad marketing initiative of sending out followup literature after a successful signup. Some of the assets were used in their booth displays for trade shows.
I was tasked with creating a modern style on a vintage typographical treatment for the Kiplinger's Finance guide for how to manage your money as a millenial.
