A research on letters — The experimental typographic project vertical, horizontal, half-circle was inspired by the observation of differences between communication to humans and to computers. While the instructions given to computers should be precisely defined and give and expected and constant result, instructions to humans are personal, built on anticipation of knowledge and its correctness is barely questioned. Therefore we will always get an output on our instruction given to a person, but often not what we imagined. Strict instructions describing the letters of the alphabet were given to volunteers. Since every instruction can be interpret personally, completely new alphabets were created.

This ABC shows masterfully the Rocaille ornament of the beginning Rococo period. It was designed by the Polish goldsmith Bierpfaff and engraved by his fellow Jeremias Falck.

Watched The Fault in Our Stars yesterday and all I can say is wow.

I’ll admit I didn’t like the book (I prefer Paper Towns and Looking for Alaska) as much but the film was done amazingly - from the all star cast (Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley were both fitting for their roles) to the A+ soundtrack (Ed Sheeran, Grouplove, Kodaline? I mean come on), production design and the way the story was portrayed, I couldn’t have expected anything more. 

I also came out of the cinema weeping like a baby because really, all my emotions went wild on every scene of the film. I’ve never been this…emotional. Ever.

Have you guys watched TFiOS? How did you find the movie adaptation? :)

Stuff I’ve worked on last week (which apparently are both very girly in nature):

1. Watercolor drafts. I’ve been meaning to learn more techniques on flower painting, so hopefully I get to squeeze that into my schedule!

2. My sister celebrated her 18th birthday last weekend - and being the “creative” big sister, I designed all her materials for the event. I also taught her a bit of watercolor so she painted her own invite. 

Happy start of the month, everyone! :)

My first attempt to do lettering on a cafe menu happened earlier this week when I dropped by Footzeez. It’s a small cafe and spa located near Malacanang (Abreu Street). Bias aside (since I did do work here), the food and drinks are really good (especially the iced tea) plus the interiors are A+. I never expected you could find a nice place like this inside the Malacanang vicinity.

But then again, it’s always nice for things to exceed expectations. :) There’s also a spa inside so if you’re itching to unwind or relax, do drop by Footzeez!

Here are two weeks’ worth of freelance and personal projects (not even including my monthly board work duties). Two weeks can also be translatable to two weekends (only) because internship work is a different story. *cry* #busylivingforever

I am just happy that I managed to finish all these before this week. I’ve been on the constant rollercoaster ride trying to discipline myself and manage time efficiently with my priorities - and I am so relieved to realize that after this week’s happenings (read: 2 classes I’ll be teaching at LEAP tomorrow and the Love, Type workshop this Saturday), I can finally focus on just thesis and personal things.

*sigh* 

I really just can’t wait to graduate and take a huge break from life.
