Graphic Designer vs. Client

November 14, 2009

I’m not going to write about this, but it deserves to be posted.

I saw someone working in Comic Sans the other day. I wonder what my career will be like.

Grow Old through Print

November 14, 2009

/M/A/S/H/ designer, Dom Roberts, recently sent out wedding invitations. Normally, I wouldn’t think this would be that interesting, but Roberts took the phrase “Growing old together” in a whole new direction. Why wait to see what you and your significant other will look like when you can use Photoshop to find out? This blows my mind and freaks me out an equal amount. The things you can do with technology are just amazing. I hope they save these so 50 years down the road, they can see how close they actually were.

Check it out for yourself.

I’ll Eat You Up!

wild

Most of us have heard about Spike Jonze’s recreation of Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Thing’s Are, but there is more to the story. Father of young actor, Max Records (9 at the time of the production), was also going on a journey on his own– letting his son off on his own. During the entire production, Shawn Records (Max’s father) documented his personal journey through photography and published it as a book. This however, may be a letdown to those who are looking for more insight into Where The Wild Things are, since it is about Shawn Records’ own personal struggles, anxiety, fears, and finally, reassurances on set.

The book is to be released in late October by Publication Studio.

 

I haven’t read it myself (seeing as it is $120), but it seems to me that Shawn Records might be wrong about having not much to do with Where The Wild Things Are’s script. In the film, Max’s adventure turns out to be filled with anticipation, self-doubt, and an awful lot of hopelessness; not far from where I can imagine Shawn Records’ personal story goes. In the end, Max realizes that everyone has the same problems and feelings, and that it is just a matter of accepting them, dealing with them correctly, and moving on. Behind the scenes is basically the same as on screen sometimes– Records is just offering another view.
