Graphic Designer working and living as best as he can in Halifax. I like robots, comics, movies, and type. This blog is mostly my opinions on things that I like to do. From photography to board games, you'll find it all.
I really dig this design for the cover more than the final product. I still really like the final design and can appreciate the effort put into it, but I found the subtly and pattern really interesting visually. In the end though, you have to do what the client wants you to do. I also enjoy the use of color in the final version.
Mondo announced today its partnership with Studio Ghibli, presenting a poster series coinciding with the studio’s retrospective at the IFC Center in New York City. The first entry is an Olly Moss poster for the breathtaking Miyazaki film My Neighbor Totoro.
The poster for the original version is super scary. I remember seeing it at movie stores when I was a kid and thinking that this movie was probably going to be the scariest thing I’d ever see.
I got really excited to see it when I noticed it was on Netflix. I didn’t hate it, but I think the modern remake is the far superior film. I found the modern version to actually be frightening while the original is kinda silly.
These are a couple of playing cards I designed for the design blog Artem de Machinis. I liked this project a lot. Playing cards are something that everyone knows, so it was fun to play around with breaking and adhering to their mold.
I think Octopus are the scariest creatures alive. They should be the symbol that a team uses to strike fear in the hearts of their opponents. I chose Ottawa because of the alliteration and that I’m Canadian.
