This is a typographic illustration by an artist named Travis Sterns. His goal with this project was to "develop new characters that express the way we talk and would make it easier for others to understand our stories.

The other important thing he says is "you have to be aggressive with your designs." I think that's great advice for any designer...don't be afraid of your own creativity.

since we've been working on box designs in class this particular piece caught my eye. it's actually packaging for an invitation for a "heart art" event.

i think the image on the right is the top bottom front and back unfolded...pretty cool idea for an invite.
