Limahl’s hair is not “Too Shy”

April 1, 2008

Working on a redesign of Limahl’s (former frontman of Kajagoogoo-just in case) delicious album, “Don’t Suppose.”
I think it was released in 1984 or ’85. Yea, it has that really good tune called “The NeverEnding Story.” I’ll be posting images of my progress soon.

Package Formats will be cd, 45,33 LP, cassette

These are the original covers:

portfolio…just thinkin’

March 30, 2008

Ok, so I’ve finally started working on some projects that I’d like to incorporate into portfolio (better late than never). But I was thinking “How can I “package” my entire portfolio?”…Do I want to present my pieces in a hard bound book, in a box, in a can, through a motion piece? I have no clue. As I was out walking and shopping for inspiration I ended up at a thrift shop in the west village and found some cool 8track cartridges and Texas Monthly zines. ummm…yea. Soooo, I purchased “The Sound of Music” 8track tape,(even though I dont currently own an 8track player! but will soon) and a lovely Country compilation one which I bought mainly because June Carter was on the bill-shes my hero:) Anyway, as I am being rung up at the register I turn to my left and there is this little boy playing with a View Master…suddenly I was taken back to 1986, I’m 5 yrs old and I’m viewing “My Little Pony” slides through my View Master! O how I loved those G1 ponys! Anyway, So I got to thinking, wouldnt it be kinda rad to package my portfolio on View Master slides? Make it nostalgic and obviously interactive for the viewer? I dont know maybe Im getting a little ahead of myself, maybe someone out there has already thought this up, whatever. but Ive began researching the process of actually producing a “personalized” View Master, its a lot involved but hopefully I’ll be able to pull it off. We’ll see…

Machine Typeface.

March 3, 2008

A spin off project I wanted to do from my thesis topic, a “machine-like” typeface. Next, the plan is to do a type specimen book.

My very simple website, loosely based on, *Sigh* the good ‘ol DOS times… simple, to the point, and kind of horrific looking. In a good way though—of course 🙂
