Election Night Credentials

Starting to go through the enormous amount of work from the campaign. These are the credentials/invitation that all guests were required to wear to get you into the event where the president spoke on election night. I was honored to once again collaborate with the wonderful and talented Jessica Hische on them.

Doyald Poster Thanks

Thanks to all that have help spread the word about the Doyald Young poster. Some nice scholarships will be had. So grateful for that. http://www.swiss-miss.com/2011/04/design-is-2.html http://www.designworklife.com/2011/04/12/doyald-young-poster/ http://welovetypography.com/post/10906 http://bit.ly/gAAhPP

Doyald Poster

I started this project with Doyald Young in November of 2010 and was to be a gift from myself and Doyald to one of our mutual friends. Before the poster was finished sadly, Doyald passed away. The day after his passing, I contacted Jessica Hische, she graciously and beautifully brought the project to life. The poster took a whole new direction from a gift for a friend to a way to raise money for a type scholarship in Doyald’s name. The poster is 15 x 20 and is letterpress printed on Classic Crest 130 lb Solar White. http://etsy.me/dWgbB4

Doyald

DOYALD YOUNG: In type class I felt like the most fortunate person alive when my name was chosen out of a hat of 30 to work one-on-one with him. What I learned from him that day and for years to come went way beyond good design or type. This email is a great example of that and what a giving person he was. It has sat on my desk for the last 12 years as inspiration to strive to do good work and be a good human. He was the kindest most generous man and a one of a kind talent. Thank you Candice Lopez for introducing me to such an amazing man. I as many will miss him very much.
