In regards to my last post, about my hand drawn blackletter Calligraphy that I then screen printed. Well, this is the finished product. I must say that I am very pleased with the end result!

Blackletter Calligraphy?

I decided to put the Copic Wide calligraphy markers I got to good use for my Type as Art class tonight. The assignment is to create a piece that reflected something about our heritage. It was left very open, we could be more personal, or go farther back our family tree if we chose to.

I decided to sort of go both directions. With a very German name like Schweitzer (my mothers name being Schrift, also very German), I decided to do some German blackletter calligraphy with my shinny new markers, use it as a light resist, then screen print it to reflect my more personal heritage (my father being co-owner of Unlimited Screen Printing in Birdsboro, PA since my early childhood).

I'll try to post a high quality photo of the final product when it's complete, so check back soon!

Final Logo

Just finished the logo design for my senior thesis project. After a couple rounds of revisions and lots of different compositional layout explorations I came to this one. I must say I am pretty pleased with it! It has gone through a lot of changes, but all where ones that I think was for the best. Also, I designed all the typography used in the logo on a side note.

Logo for FactionFonts

Just a quick preview of the logo I'm working on for my senior thesis. It's still just a first working draft, so I might decide to make some changes later on. I will be posting the final logo and more previews over the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
