Designing Type by Karen Chang;
Lettering & Type by Bruce Willen & Nolan Strals
also a sweet homemade pillow by Lisa. Monogramed with a Rockwell Y.
forgive to poor color in the photographs.
I also got a new battery for my MacBook Pro (as I'm typing this, my old battery says, "Condition: Replace Now" at 17%, "You are now running on reserve battery")
I've updated 3 of the icons from a previous post. The ruler here scales better, the lightbulb is more iconic & the dialogue (speech bubble) is tweaked just a bit.
I'll post the poster of the final project soon. promise.
I bought these for 5 euro in the Netherlands at a flea market.
