Do yourself a favor. View the whole post from Anton Burmistrov for the Imaginarium project. Anton provides sketches of various concepts, how he created the mark, and building the mark out. The attention to detail and craftsmanship is amazing here.
iDrop Cap Covers
I recently spotted an entrepreneurial company had teamed-up with Jessica Hische to produce her drop caps on covers for iPad and iPhone.
A contributor and interviewee of 8Faces Magazine, Jessica began Daily Drop Cap, a self initiated project in 2009 where she would illustrate a letter each day, working through the alphabet a total of twelve times. At its peak the site had more than 100,000 visitors per month. Uncommon’s collection features Jessica’s 2nd Alphabet.
“I was able to collaborate with Uncommon this year to create awesome iPhone and iPad cases for every model on the market that prominently feature my Daily Drop Caps. We’ll be rolling out each and every alphabet overtime, so stay tuned for your favorite letter to launch!”

The Empathy Project by Paul Rucker and curated by Marcus Civin is a participatory art project that invites artists to submit work that explores their experiences with empathy. It is a celebration of the diverse, eclectic mix that is any group of people and is the first exhibition that I have designed. It was an interesting challenge, as the brief expected the identity to express diversity but also leave room for the logo to extend into the several sub divisions of the exhibition: Engage, Perform, Write, Meditate, Listen and Collaborate.
The exhibition opens this weekend and these are a few images from the set up. Full process and credits to follow.
Project headed by Paul Rucker, Marcus Civin, Gwynne Keathley

Project for my Social Psych class last semester. This poster series was created to 1) challenge these internalized stereotypes by bringing them to the viewer’s attention and 2) expand the range of role models by including a diverse group of women. Each poster follows the same basic pattern: a woman who has demonstrated her competency in a particular area refutes the stereotype that appears above her in the form of “Girls can’t …”. While the posters target girls ranging from children to young adults, I expect the message would also cause people outside that demographic to question their own beliefs about women and power. I designed each aspect of the posters with several principles of social psychology in mind:
