Selfie game at the Museum of Design Atlanta. Text Me, the exhibition currently on view served as a nice design geek out session a few weeks ago, especially combined with Making Africa, currently on view across the street at the High.

Another interstitial urban space. It was late enough walking past this time that I didn’t have to dodge eager drivers wanting to get the hell out of parking deck as quickly as possible.

DRC Redesign

New work for the Downtown Running Club. Five years strong, a little more representative of the vibe. Custom type inspired by downtown sidewalk brickwork on top of a bham manhole cover. In all your favorite colors so long as it’s gray or dark gray. If you want a shirt / sweatshirt, follow the link in my profile.

New work for the Downtown Running Club. Five years strong, I decided it was time to make something more representative of the club’s vibe. The custom type is inspired by downtown sidewalk brickwork and it’s laid on top of a Birmingham manhole cover.

Moment of truth. Designing maps is an ordeal.

A detailed post documenting this project might eventually happen. Leave it at this for now: designing maps is a tricky wicket. Everyone reads maps differently. People have varied spatial reasoning abilities. There is little consensus on priorities, which is actually a little surprising if you think about it. Needless to say I’m a little on pins and needles waiting to get a week’s worth of feedback from visitors and coworkers. I have a near allergic reaction to “design by committee,” though iterative beta testing isn’t quite the same, it’s a little unnerving.

And, to make it trickier, we’re renaming the floors of the Museum. Instead of “1, 2, and 3,” we’re hoping “Ground, 1, and 2” will make more sense to the visitors. Of course it means some janky testing while we wait for new elevator buttons to come in.

Third floor, what third floor? No third floor to see here. May I offer you a comparable second floor?

Manhole covers. Just can’t quit. Eventually I might have finished work detailing all of the places I’ve been thanks to my obsessive documentation of manhole covers in almost every city and town I visit.

Akzidenz Grotesk – hand cut

Akzidenz Grotesk – hand cut

Design process. I’m sure I could find a “hand cut” or “cut paper” font that is close to Akzidenz Grotesk. But, I use Akzidenz Grotesk daily for the Museum’s branded materials and I wanted to keep a crafty, hand-made aesthetic on brand, I printed out the alphabet and hand cut it. It was fun to craft hands-on analog design materials. Granted, I made the alphabet and then laid out the copy in Photoshop rather than cutting out the entire design… but I’m a one person shop, so I gotta make concessions somewhere.
