So I was a bit pressed on time and energy on this one, Made it in 7 hours overnight… and by that I mean from 11pm-6am haha
Just experimenting, The type is a typeface I modified.. it is a poem by the Iranian poet Sirous Jamali.
Here’s an unofficial horrible translation I will do my best… it should butcher the poem because I’m not a translator, but it will get the main message across.. minus the graceful manner in which it does it in Farsi.
Come sit! There’s space.
The one who was promised to bring me dreams
came and took away my sleep too…
The Naïve I, was thinking like the sun’s childhood
but I completely forgot
that the sun was never a child
An older poster I made for CFI, Printed across Canada (Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, Saskatoon, Ottawa, Kelowna, and Kamloops) for debates held about the issue of euthanasia.
Used google sketchup for some of the models and photoshop to add depth, colour, fog, and improve textures and shadows.
Yes a book with a cover made of stone… I talked to many people and they all said it was impossible and that I was crazy, but there it is… the secret ingredient is using your head to make it work.
Please look at the PDF to see all the details about the making of it, and if you really like it I might make one for you… but it won’t be cheap :)
It isn’t just about the binding though, the poem, the photography, the typography, and drawings are all part of the package and I worked equally hard on all of them.
Process book final
Last year I got a call from an old friend of mine about a logo design. The company recycled broken pieces of granite into new tiles and they had already decided to name it “Picazzo”… I only had one week to make it and these were the three designs I submitted. Most of the times the tiles have a hexagonal shape so the first two have that… also the negative space inside them is the letter “p” and the whole idea of them being put together.. they really liked it and went with the first one.
