That Was The Week That Was — 27th October 2019

After several days of wrangling with colours for the latest piece of work, liking something then a few hours later realising it was terrible, I finally got to a place I was pleased with for this latest piece of client work. It was now looking balanced and incorporated the new requested colour in a way that didn't look forced.

To keep me busy whilst I waited I did some new Houdini learnings using UV packing, creating some typographic experiments — type made up of type. I was liking this approach and something I may use in a future piece of work sometime. For now it goes in the digital cupboard of ideas.

On the Sunday morning I woke up to a flurry of orders — some people even buying the full collection of three. After some investigation I discovered John Gruber, founder of Daring Fireball, had tweeted about it.
