Visual Designer

Spending Free Time

While I love seeing how technology and design can come together to make really incredible things, I also love being able to work with traditional methods of design. Working with your hands puts your knowledge of typography and composition to the ultimate test. You can't simply change the typeface or the size of the type when you're doing letterpress, for example; the resources you have are presented in a series of drawers that date back to the 1800's. And with hand-drawn type, it's much more fun to let the imperfections of the tool negotiate the types of things you are creating. With these tools, problem solving takes on a whole new meaning when you have a specific set of limitations and constraints to work with.
