In the latest edition of Uppercase Magazine (No.15), Canadian editor and founder, Janine Vangool, invited 26 designers and illustrators to create a piece of artwork to celebrate the humble bitmap.
“Make beautiful bitmaps by taking this vestigial part of digital type—the bitmap—and making it into something to be newly appreciated.”
Not all of the pieces have been created digitally either, Dominique Falla’s Q is made up of hundreds of different colored overlaid ribbons. There are some insightful blog posts on some of the designers’ process too from, Louise Fili and Dominique Falla.
Each piece can be viewed on the Society6 site where you can also purchase prints of the works. A portion of proceeds will go to creating an UPPERCASE scholarship fund to assist a reader in pursuing education in design, illustration, typography or craft.
I am happy to say that my work is in Uppercase Magazine Issue 23. It features tons of amazing calligraphers and I am very honored to be part of them. You can find a copy or subscribe here but shhh.. use coupon ‘letterlove’ for $15 off!
my spread for work/life 3: the uppercase directory of illustration featuring 100 international illustrators. based on interviews about our creative processes, personal interests, inspiration and backgrounds, we were given a specific assignment to illustrate- i was asked to show a collection of everyday objects in my home that tells a little something about myself. which i suppose just reveals that i’m a simple gal.
This is my second week as UPPERCASE magazine’s creative in resident, and I am so pleased to be able to work in such a beautiful and creative space. Even a mediocre photographer like myself can take nice photos in a well designed place!
Every Monday on the blog we’re going to take a look at another magazine, or publication that we’ve been enjoying reading in the Wrap studio, and this week it’s the turn of Uppercase #13 with it’s lovely foil blocked cover.
Looking at themes of luck, serendipity and good fortune, issue thirteen of Uppercase - the magazine for the creative and curious, is jam packed with excellent and inspiring content. What we really like is how varied the features are, from a look at the state of woven label manufacturing in Australia, to the creative musings of Stockholm based designer Ingela Peterson. It’s also a great showcase for illustration (which of course hits a soft spot with Wrap) - in this issue the magazine invited thirteen illustrators to interpret the theme of luck, as well as running a feature showcasing artwork by some of their talented readers and subscribers.
