Slab Serif Typeface W.I.P.

I realised that my previous typeface lacked a little personality and that there are thousands of typefaces very similar to it, so I've given that one a break for a while to think what I can add to make it less similar to others. 

I've decided to take a shot at designing this slab serif which has more personality in it. The typeface is still in development, but so far, what do you guys reckon? Anything awful stick out?

It also needs a name, was thinking something along the lines of Versity, as the type has a very American University style feel to it. Other ones I've thought of are Segment or Regement?

Tilt-Shift Photography

I thought I would take a crack at using the Tilt-Shift technique with one of my photos, and it's turned out pretty well I think! It's impressive that making a lot of the photo out of focus really does make things look like models/toys!

Brickyard Poster - Rubakai

I have been given complete freedom with this poster, so I decided to use my own photo. I like the layout, but I can't help but feel that something is missing, maybe needs a little colour. The first poster is the original one, the second with red circles (which seem a little too overbearing) and the final contains subtle blue lines which is my personal favorite.

I haven't kerned the letters yet, but was wondering if there was anything major that I should change that you guys can spot?

[EDIT] Got the date wrong, my bad, it's actually on the 24th.

Faux Furs'Days Poster W.I.P

Design in progress for the new Faux Furs'Days poster, and I'm continuing on with the illustrative style I've been working on. Is there anything wrong with the illustration?

Quarantine Posters

I have been commissioned to design posters that will feature in a student film called 'Transmission.' The posters are to warn the public on how to survive the spreading infection within the film. This has definitely been my favorite work produced for a client, as I love post–apocalyptic, survival, zombie themed films and games, so it was very fun designing for!

Birthday Card - Ant 2011

I forgot to post the card I made for my friend Ant, as I was busy the following few days, but here it is! For those of you who play TF2 will know the character and the quote (which has been edited) and he is Ant's favorite class in the game.

[EDIT] 100th post! :D
