Simon Page Just Made My Head Explode [Part Two]

Posted in Artwork, Graphic Design, Print, Typography with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 7, 2010 by bendey14

I promised a “Part Two” so here it is.  This set of Simon Page‘s work focuses on typographic years.  I used to do this stuff everyday in the margins of my notebook during my note-taking days; specifically with each days current date.  All of these are just so clean and dynamic, I love it.  This is how I’m going to start dating my checks from now on.

Once again, here’s where you can find him:

Simon Page Just Made My Head Explode [Part One]

Posted in Artwork, Graphic Design, Print, Typography with tags , , , , , , on March 30, 2010 by bendey14

Just caught some buzz about Simon Page, a self taught graphic designer based in the UK, so naturally I had to give him a look.  Like Simon, I’ve pretty much taught myself everything I know in the world of graphic design, but I might as well go back to drawing with crayons compared to this guy.  Simon’s work generally focuses on geometric design, typography art, and illustration.  For a few of these… it looks like it could have taken him a full year to design.  Here’s a handful of some of my faves.  Stay tuned for Part Two!

For more examples of Simon’s work check out his website @ SimonCPage.co.uk or his iPhone friendly portfolio.

You can also follow him @SimonCPage.

Stay tuned for Part Two!

MBender VU UAC typographic portraitsI found this collection of amazing typographic portraits the other day and thought I’d share them with ya’ll.  I don’t know the names or sources on each pic, but you can visually enjoy some lo-res eye candy for now, right?

Side note… typography is the most underrated art form of the modern world.  True story.

UAC Does Lebron James + Nike

Posted in Artwork, Creative Campaigns, Graphic Design, Print, Typography, UAC Updates with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 12, 2010 by bendey14

What can you say about Lebron James?  I’m assuming quite a bit…and if there’s any point you didn’t cover, Skip Bayless could probably fill in the cracks.

Too young, too selfish, too lazy, too 23??  Lebron’s out to prove you wrong in 2010.

A little somethin’ I cooked up between my other projects.  I’ve got love for Cleveland all day… up until they face Detroit in late April.

[Note: Image by Sports Illustrated, logo by Nike.  This is NOT a real advertisement, nor is it endorsed by Nike, Lebron James, or S.I.]

UPDATE: You know Fernando Torres needs some love.  All my soccer/futbol fans out there, get at me for the full wallpaper.  (This isn’t endorsed by Nike, Torres, or the country of Spain either… )

Oh yeah, it’s my 1ooth post, show some love.

Vivid TypeFace

Just want to update the ol’ Underground with another vivid installment.  This latest piece I created is actually the product of a couple hours of viewing some Photoshop tutorials.  If you ever have a few hours to spare (or purposely set aside) I encourage any artist or designer to just surf the “intranets” and track down some walk-through tutorials.  I made some room in my incredibly busy schedule of being an unemployed college graduate the other night to polish up on some skills and of course, learn some new tricks.  As a recent college graduate, I’ve quickly realized the up hill climb to landing a job is quite a bit steeper than I originally anticipated, especially in the world of advertising and marketing.  More will come about this later.

So this is what I did the other night.  Turned out pretty cool I think.  Although this is just a practice piece, it’s opened up a new avenue of design ambition I’d like to continue to pursue.  You can find the tutorial at Tutorial Magazine and download the Photoshop brushes provided at Obsidian Dawn (ALWAYS credit your sources).  Stay tuned for more, I’m about to get my hands dirty.
