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.

Crescent light through tree leaf filters.

Taken a few minutes before totality in Dayton, Tennessee. My phone stayed in my pocket during totality. A total eclipse is a truly amazing experience. The difference between 99% and totality is worth a day’s drive. That’s about all that can be said.

In Dayton for the eclipse. Stopped by the courthouse, but the Monkey Trial Museum is closed.

Stopped by the courthouse, but the Monkey Trial Museum is closed. It pleased me to be viewing a scientific event like a total eclipse where the Scope’s Monkey Trial happened.

Gesso going down

Work in progress, laying down black gesso on plywood. Light caught it just right, the streaks looking like a giant record under magnification.

The day after locking one’s self out of the loft, one gets new keys made to leave with friends.
