Visiting Chicago

From Chicago with Love

I visited Chicago recently and I cannot begin to express how infatuated I was with the city. It is one of the most beautiful and captivating places I have ever been to and would happily visit it again any day of the year.

HTML Typography Test

JSBin Demo

Protest Against Befesa

Protest!

I am Jack’s...

I am Jack’s...

If you have seen the movie Fight Club, you may remember some of the phrases that were said as the story progressed. This one in particular had a very nice ring to it... "I am Jack's Smirking Revenge". It was very dark, yet elegant. All of them had a very interesting message behind them that hid the true feelings of the character, I'd like to work on others when I get a chance.

Propagate!

Propagate!

When the soundtrack for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross came out. Trent announced it on his twitter by saying "propagate, motherfucker!" These two words went deep inside my head and I had to make something out of them... For this poster, the design of the lines is actually based on a similar style used by Rob Sheridan. Nine Inch Nails' main Graphic Designer. I was so fascinated by that idea of the lines crossing each others' paths that I had to try it myself and seemed to feet the idea of propagation really well.
