notes from The Critique - December 17, 2007

update a font
hybrid fonts
create a new font

calligraphy - skills

we're paying so much attention to the print
They are like logos.

Think about the possibilities of wood, plastic, Cintra (plastic composite)...

Go visit Hoefler & Frere-Jones in NYC
Cyrus Highsmith
Font Bureau - Boston
Generate more "stuff" with them

This particular project is "static".
That particular project is "done".

PHASE II: Meeting "real" artists.

People will take you more seriously because you know the craft.
But you can do more than this. You have proved you think on many more levels, so take it there.

Cut into pre-existing wood or wood type.

Mike Perry - lettering work for Urban Outfitters

Think about 22" x 24" plex on the big press.
