Past, Present & Future

Color

Spreading Ink

I seem to have sadly neglected this blog for the last month or two. Personal projects and my day job took the driver’s seat in my design life, but I’m ready to start posting again!

Lately I have been working a lot on letterpress projects. Here are some photos of some typesetting on press! If you live in NYC and would like to try your hand at some letterpress work, check out The Arm in Brooklyn!

I am convinced that there is nothing in the world that compares to pulling a fresh print off a press.

Color: The Beauty of Olympic Skeet Shooting

This year at the London 2012 Olympic Games when one of these clay discs is shot a pink powder bursts into the air. It is likely for entertainment and judging purposes but whatever the reason, it is absolutely gorgeous! The way the game is played, two throwing machines at different heights launch a series of targets in a specific order, some as singles and some as doubles, with the shooter having a fixed position between them. It is very enjoyable to watch! [via Eurosport]

Virtual Travel: The Heidelberg Project – Detroit, Michigan

The Heidelberg Project is a unique art environment located in the heart of Detroit’s East Side. The project’s main focus is to take a stand to save forgotten neighborhoods and to heal communities through art. Founder and artistic director Tyree Guyton uses everyday, discarded objects to transform a once closely abandoned area into an area full of color, symbolism, and creativity. The project has been around for about 26 years and  is recognized around the world as a demonstration of the power of creativity to transform lives.

When I stumbled over the project on Google Maps while perusing through Detroit I couldn’t help but smile at the colorful houses and art displays juxtaposed against the normal images of urban decay. If you would like to peruse the project on your own, check out the Heidelberg Project Google Street view!
