Can’t get enough. xD

This intro [sort of] is what Sunao ni Narenakute (Hard to Say I Love You) should have been in the first 5 minutes… and this is coming from someone who’s never used Twitter. xD

Great typography work [in progress]!

Koncar creates ype from found- objects such as teabags, rotten apples, gummibears, raw meat, condoms (also colored condoms), dirt, toothpicks, and stuff you can find…

Best Posters 2009

January 20, 2010 — 1 Comment

and the winner is…

big omissions, in my opinion, for character sets where Alvin gets a nod instead of Where the Wild Things Are… However, there were some that got nominated, even if they didn’t win. WtWTA for “Serious Tagline”, Watchmen for “Character Set”, The Lovely Bones, Star Trek and Up in the Air for “Bravest Poster”, Adam for “Funny Tagline”, and 500 Days for “Best Poster”.

Obviously, Antichrist won Creepiest Poster LOL

And kudos to the Best Motion Poster, pretty cool.

check out the nominees and winner at the IMPAwards Site.

Kazuraki Adobe Font

December 4, 2009 — Leave a comment


Adobe’s Type team has developed a typeface called Kazuraki, inspired by the calligraphy of 12th century poet Fujiwara-no-Teika. While it may not be wise to use this for book content, it’s worth a spazz at the idea that it could be used on movie posters, movie titles, book covers, and many other pieces of copy.

It’s gorgeous.


More info at the Japan Society of Northern California.

why is that? how is that?

I’m not particularly fond of Mr. Vargas Llosa, but I ran into these covers, which are way cooler than the version of his books that I’ve seen lying around bookshelves.

I know this looks cool, but can you read anything on it? xD

Since I’ve been jealous that my friends Turtle and JK are taking some really good typography classes, I have told them they can review their classes and assignments with me… that way they learn, and I also get to learn. xD

Anyway, JK referred me to FontStruct, which I had visited once after they showed up on a Communication Arts issue. However, I was to shy to try it out — I mean, that introductory quick animation seems a bit pro. But in the end, JK told me I should check it out because it was interesting, and his teacher like it quite a bit.

So I ended up playing with it to create a pixel-based font. I started out with my KATAKANA alphabet, which has some very nice forms and some very hard  to do~~~ This pixel font also works for typing in Spanish, French and Swedish =D

Sorry, no Hiragana at the moment.

Plus, Photoshop doesn’t seem to recognize the Japanese input, and just uses the default font for Japanese characters. What’s up with that? Does anyone know?

My favorite font! and Johnny Cash! xD
