Why is it?

That my roommate gets to go to sleep, and I have to stay up doing homework?  Oh I know, its because I chose to do something where I get to have fun every day.

A real question though, am I the only one who feels like by thinking or incubating on an idea you come up with your best work?  (compared to doing more quick models that don't feel as personal?)

Reflections on 'Typeface'

I honestly enjoyed this movie.  I am a dork.  It made me REALLY want to take a letterpress class if not for anything other than to make big ampersands on paper in fun colors.
& <-- Like that, but with numbers overlaying it.
I do think its sad that wood type is fading out, seeing how passionate these people where about an arguably obsolete trade kind of broke my heart.  The movie definitely succeeded  in its goal to create awareness of letterpress and the Wisconsin ''Hamilton Wood Type Museum" I really want to visit it.
I also want to get into letterpress now.  I WILL be taking it with Linda in the summer (if its offered)

Just a few ideas for my questions.

How many Gods do you believe in?
What religion are you?
How far do you walk daily, weekly, monthly?
How tall are you?
How many pets do you have? (list what type of each)
What is the furthest you have driven in a car?
How many siblings did you have? (ratio of boys to girls?)
What is your favorite meme?

Just to make sure you all can see it

Why is the magic number in design class 15...?

15 compositions, 15 drawings.  I think the number 15 divided by the number 3 would be a much better number for it.

To me who are you?

    Adrian Frutiger, a typeface designer and a normal person.  An artist. Switzerland, the son of a weaver by the age of 16 was working as a printer's apprentice near his home town. An escapist from the formal.  He truly turned clear/concise letterforms into beautiful manipulations of the formality that we are all used to into 'truth' if truth could be conveyed in a typeface.  He analyzed how type shape and geometry can effect human emotions in his book "Geometry of Feelings".  He understood the effects of design on the mind, and he analyzed it and turned it into works that other designers can use to more effectively communicate thought, feeling, and emotion. He truly was a frontiersman in the world of type design. An educator a student a master and a wordsmith, that is Adrian Frutiger. (In a nutshell)

Univers, what makes it so special you may ask? Well I will tell you, it is clear concise and powerful.  It stays clean while not being 'standard' by any means.  The univers grid shows different widths and thicknesses of the font so that a designer can easily and effectively choose what message s/he wants to convey with his font choice

I really want,
One of these, Cintiq.
But getting one of these is more likely.
I have one of these, but in hindsight I would have bought on of those (the slightly smaller one so it is more portable).

I found Tads work randomly online

Does that mean he is famous, or I spend too much time on the internet...
The image is halfway through (chefburger)100 creative business cards.

as far as I am concerned

Unless I find out I am not allowed to, I think I want to do a Triceratops for my animal.
