It’s been a busy couple of weeks for me. I’ve had a pretty wide range of projects. Check out some shots from them (some are in progress):


This is the beginning of a new body of work that depicts a slight sense of motion and disorientation. More to come from that in the future.


More after the jump.

Dear KDU members I only got accepted here a few days ago and I was really looking forward for creating  a design for KDU. So this is what I came up with. Main inspiration was Egypt, both culture and history.

29I had this personal project on rest for a while, due to being busy with other projects. Until recently I decided to continue advancing with it. This is one of the newer pieces. Click here to see entire project. It was recently featured on Typography Served

:: Typeface In Development ::



My contribution to the Quentin vs. Coen show next week in NYC. If you’re in the area, you should come check out the show. It’s a show based on characters from the films of the Coen Brothers and Quentin Tarantino. I chose to do a piece on Jules Winnfield from Pulp Fiction. Say ‘what’ again. This is a very limited print run, and will probably sell out at the show. I may have an extra 15 or so of my own that I’ll put up for sale after the show’s over.

I am experimenting with cel animation for a new upcoming project and put together this animated alphabet to help me figure out what I am up against technically and creatively.

The Roots

The Roots, a typographic piece created for the Keystone Design Union. The KDU espouses many masonic ideals and is connected to the Freemasons of New York. Scottish Thistle, Irish Clover, and British and American Roses reflect the entwined historical roots of the Freemasonry organisation.

A Hoberman sphere as an icosidodecahedron

In geometry, an icosidodecahedron is a polyhedron with twenty triangular faces and twelve pentagonal faces. An icosidodecahedron has 30 identical vertices, with two triangles and two pentagons meeting at each, and 60 identical edges, each separating a triangle from a pentagon. As such it is one of the Archimedean solids and more particularly, a quasiregular polyhedron.

An icosidodecahedron has icosahedral symmetry, and its first stellation is the compound of a dodecahedron and its dual icosahedron, with the vertices of the icosahedron located at the midpoints of the edges of either. Convenient Cartesian coordinates for the vertices of an icosidodecahedron with unit edges are given by the cyclic permutations of (0,0,±τ), (±1/2, ±τ/2, ±(1+τ)/2), where τ is the golden ratio, (1+√5)/2. Its dual polyhedron is the rhombic triacontahedron. An icosidodecahedron can be split along several planes to form pentagonal rotundae, which belong among the Johnson solids.

In the standard nomenclature used for the Johnson solids, an icosidodecahedron would be called a pentagonal gyrobirotunda.




[edit] Area and volume

The area A and the volume V of the icosidodecahedron of edge length a are:

A = (5sqrt{3}+3sqrt{25+10sqrt{5}}) a^2  approx 29.3059828a^2
V = frac{1}{6} (45+17sqrt{5}) a^3 approx  13.8355259a^3.

[edit] Related polyhedra

The icosidodecahedron is a rectified dodecahedron and also a rectified icosahedron, existing as the full-edge truncation between these regular solids.

The Icosidodecahedron contains 12 pentagons of the dodecahedron and 20 triangles of the icosahedron:

It is also related to the Johnson solid called a pentagonal orthobirotunda created by two pentagonal rotunda connected as mirror images.

Eight uniform star polyhedra share the same vertex arrangement. Of these, two also share the same edge arrangement: the small icosihemidodecahedron (having the triangular faces in common), and the small dodecahemidodecahedron (having the pentagonal faces in common). The vertex arrangement is also shared with the compounds of five octahedra and of five tetrahemihexahedra.
