0 Lightbox Typography

I recently have been interested in the idea that oftentimes people don’t know something until it is revealed to them. To explore this idea tangibly, I wanted to use light to reveal or hide message.

The photos here display my first attempt at this lightbox-like project. Unclear of what my messaging should currently be, I use a question mark for the prototype. When the light is off it appears that the object is really just a framed white panel. Upon switching on the light, the typography is revealed. This is just the start to the idea. Perhaps I’ll find a message with meaning. If not, I’ll have an excuse to create some fun patterns and letters!

0 Trip to Hamilton

Early last month, Simple.Honest.Work. took a trip up to the Hamilton Wood Type Museum in Two Rivers, WI to hang out, get away from our computers, help out at the museum, and do some letterpress printing. This was my third time up to Hamilton and I was asked to make a fall themed football print for the museum to sell. After taking a look at some football cuts from the Globe Printing Collection, I got to work with only the day to make the print.
