Archive—Haiku

Friday, September 14th, 2012

Haiku conceptual branding:
I created an integrated conceptual identity for Haiku based on the Japanese poetic form.

Excerpt from Simply Haiku:

…Haiku “cuts” explanation: this is haiku. Haiku “cuts”: scenes, actions, everything, and cuts time and language. So, though it is said that “cutting” is really omission, I think that “cutting” is at the same time the essential proposition of haiku.4

The graphic language evokes a “cut” through a long vertical stroke of the “i” letterforms. The typography is set vertically to resemble traditional Japanese script.

Which? Magazine

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

Here are some extremely awesome Which? Magazine covers. Judging by their Wikipedia article and Grain Edit, they are sort of like the British version of Consumer Reports. Their cover art is playful in nature and retains the viewer’s attention with bold and graphic details. These are probably the most awesome covers I’ve seen in the past year or so.

Canada Earth Science Stamps

Saturday, April 23rd, 2011

Beautiful stamps commemorating the International Geographical Congress in 1973.

In 1973 Canada Post celebrated the meeting of the main organizations concerned with the exploration of the earth (The International Geological Congress, the International Geographical Congress, the Congress of the International Society of Photogrammetry, and the International Conference of the International Cartographic Association). This cool modern postage series marks this incredible event and represents the various disciplines in a graphic and descriptive manner that would make Edward Tufte proud.
