now that the design paradigm has so radically changed to the computer, i'm thinking about taking my xacto skills and going into a new field - surgery!
any takers? i charge less than them hoity-toity colleg kids...
yeah, in still have a box of french curves with coins taped to the bottom of them. I plan to one day peel them off and buy a piece of gum or something.
I also remember the xacto all too well. I have the scars to prove it.
i feel the need to point out that back in the stone age we things called "straight edges", "t-squares" and "circle templates" that made this work a lot easier than you'd think.
"french curves", too.
but this is still great even with that "modern" technology considered. the typography is KLASS!
that is bad ass especially being that it's handdone. That's freaking impressive.
yeah, I was in the last graphic design class in my college that learned traditional printing (aka making your own halftone screens. plate burning and generating type by hand). That's tough work. The year after that everyone switched to computer. Of course the stuff we didn't look anywhere as good as this.
decades ago when i first started out working on graphics and posters, i tried to make my stuff look like this. i still have a few samples of work from the early-mid seventies laying around here that look like this (not gigposters). it's fun to look back at where you came from occaisionally.
