Making Of 3D-Futurama: http://www.crackajack.de/2014/08/13/making-of-3d-futurama/
36 days of type
I noticed this open project over on Instagram recently, organised by Alejandro López Becerro. There’s a huge variety of characters to look through including just these 3D designs by Alejandro himself.
While the main letters were going up in April/May the project still seems quite active. Search on #36daysOfType and #36days_<glyph name>.
The R that didn’t make it.
I’ve been working on lettering and typography project, following on from my Exmouth Print. One the drop caps or illustrated initials that I need to illustrate is an fun ‘R’. I took inspiration loosely from the lettering on the iconic ‘Golden Gallopers’ carousel on Brighton Pier. While the gorgeous hand-painted lettering on the ride has a jaunty, seaside feel, I needed something a bit more ‘typographic’ but keeping that flamboyant style.
Although the work in progress above has been through a few iterations—and much line pushing—it’s become clear that this style is not going to sit well within the overall design. I thought you might like to see it as the final one will likely be quite different.
DC is doing 3D covers in September again.
I look forward to being so angry that my eyes bleed red for another 30 days!
