Not a lot of info on this one. Looks like Trade Gothic Bold Extended for the logo, very nice.
Hilights this month include:
A (very) short sound byte and some cover art from the forthcoming Tycho Single "The Daydream / The Disconnect" are up now at Tychomusic.com/gidg10. The single drops Dec. 11, 2007, keep an eye out here for more info.
Another page from Design Magazine #237. The balloons feature the original illustration for the ’68 games by Ramirez Vazquez, Eduardo Terrazas (MEX) and Lance Wyman (USA) who designed the “Mexico 68” logo. Wonder if any survived?
This wasn’t due to drop until Monday’s Newsletter, but here it is a couple days early. The new 1976 tee on American Apparel Baby Blue. This of course is also 15% off as part of the Holiday Sale going on now at the shop. Get em while they last >
Andre Morin’s HiFi for RCA – 1967. Is that a Perspex lid? Image sent in by Element Kuuda. I couldn’t find it on the Ikea site, but I know I’ve seen something there that very closely resembled the center console of this system. It was some sort of cabinet and looked almost exactly like this. Anyone remember what I’m talking about?
The 1976 Thermal is out now at the shop. It’s also 15% off, part of the Holiday sale that’s on now. This is the first long-sleeved shirt I’ve done, it’s on the American Apparel thermal which I absolutely love. It’s got a nice texture and it’s not too weighty. They’re moving fast so check them out!
Finally back home for a bit, feels good to have some time to focus. After a long stretch in the design trenches got the next month slated for music. Going to get back to work on the new album which is coming along well, just a lot of the dirty work yet to do. The first track from the forthcoming album will be available as a single on December 11th (iTunes Exclusive at first, all retailers later). Keep an eye here and tychomusic.com for more updates.
On a design related note, I treated the above pics of the studio using some of the concepts we were discussing back in this post. Took Christian’s advice and applied a lens blur to the vignette, getting closer to digital Lomo! Finally been getting my head around this Nikon D80 I got a while back to replace my broken 8800. Really been enjoying the results, especially at the higher ISO’s, even at ISO1000 the output is still clean and the noise is actually rather pleasing, not the sort of digital junk I’ve come to expect from high speed exposure’s with non-SLR digicams.
