This was the first sign I designed for @giganticavl when we started teaming up last year. Always fun to play with double sided asymmetry.
It’s taken a little longer than the typical project to fulfill due to permitting hurdles and fabricator foibles. But we got it done and we’re all happy with how it turned out. Shout out to @chukkb for helping save the day with some last minute plasma cutting.
What I love about sign design is the blend of disciplines. Form and function. Architecture, construction, information design, graphic design, way finding, experiential design, typography… They all come together on a project like this. Lots to explore and play with. Never a dull day.
I recently took a week off social media and it was refreshing. So easy to both waste time down the rabbit hole and spend it admiring other people’s work (and comparing) instead of making your own. It’s a delicate dance, maintaining the balance between inspiration and perspiration.
I crave a lot of input so I easily get into cycles of research mode, collection mode, feeding on information and inspiration and then diving into creative work that synthesizes it all. A lovely process when taken all together in balance.
Maintaining a conscious awareness of the appropriate use of time is a constant act of refinement.
