Report from Crossland’s conference

Dave Crossland providing end notes in the workshop

I’ve compiled the photos, video and I’ve written a short report on the conference and workshop held by Dave Crossland at the University of Aveiro. Although it’s in Portuguese I think you get the gist of it by translating it with an online service.

(If anyone is willing to translate this, I’ll happily post a link or the text here)

Happy Christmas everyone!

Just a quick post to wish everyone a merry Christmas, a nice holiday, and an excellent entrance into 2012.

While trying to finish all the tasks in course I haven’t paid enough attention to this blog… But I hope you can understand… After all, I’ve been feeling much like the winner of our 2011 Creative Christmas Illustration: “even wolves deserve a happy Christmas”

I’ll bee seeing you all here, soon!

Creative Christmas Competition: 2011 Edition

Original post contest image

While I try to find the time to post this week’s Typography and Type Design links, here’s an illustration challenge I’ve been promoting on the social networks. Although it’s meant for a broader audience, why not participate with a typographical illustration?

Win a copy of one of Isidro Ferrer’s illustrated books: create an illustration for a Christmas postcard obeying the following: dimension 150 x 100 mm, format JPEG,  RGB, 300dpi, on the theme (roughly translated): “This Christmas, the bunny has brought the big bad wolf with it, but the red riding hood will not stand”

Add a brief description of the creation process and a short bio. The winning and special mention illustrations will be published online under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Portugal License. The best illustration will be awarded with Ferrer’s book.
