Typcut Session Vol.1 Winner

September 2nd, 2010 at 1:18 am


The 20 Minute Album Cover Contest winner is Menachem Krinsky / @mkrinsky. A talented art director for Visionary + Flock Los Angeles, and a member of The KDU.

He made clever used of such random elements. Nothing is clashing in his piece and its pleasant palette. I can see he was mindful of a typeface that would jive with the interesting abstraction he created from the Flickr photo.

Thanks to everyone who participated, this was mad fun and i look forward to starting some ruckus on twitter again. If anyone has suggestions of a contest they’d like to see, hit up @typcut or @thenorik on twitter.

I look forward to see what Menachem has in store for us at Typcut.

Typcut Sessions: 20 Minute Album Cover

August 19th, 2010 at 9:34 am


Tuesday I decided to start some random trouble on Twitter. I asked my followers if anyone was interested in submitting work to Typcut. So to garner some buzz i decided to create a little contest out of my recent 20 Minute Album Cover post. I was curious to see what people would create, and was pleased to see some great submissions!

I said the end of today Wednesday would be the cut-off, but this had been pretty fun so far, and i’d love to see more work!

So i’m going to extend this out to a week. Tweet your submissions with a link to your portfolio by Wednesday 8-25, at 11:59pm EST

Winner will get an invite to the design collective i curate: Typcut

Still Kickin’

I know this blog has been super quiet lately, but it certainly hasn’t been out of laziness. I’ve been ultra busy with my new position at the almighty¬†R/GA in NYC (responsible for the genius Nike + campaign). I’ve been hired to work on their Nike account, which has been very fun. Tons of great talent here, very inspiring, i’m going to make some posts introducing some of the talent soon. A few of the designers I work with here have been contributing to¬†Typcut, which has been on fire lately, the pieces above I did recently.

Noy + Jen Lu on Typcut

Couple new additions to the Typcut. Noy has dropped a nice political piece, stickin’ it to Max Baucus, a democrat sponsored by the corrupt insurance companies, who’s been screwing the health care reform we need here in the U.S.

The second piece is done by Jen Lu, a new addition to Typcut that i’m really excited about. Her debut submission is sweet candy.
