“Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter. The sitter is merely the accident, the occasion. It is not he who is revealed by the painter; it is rather the painter who, on the coloured canvas, reveals himself.”

  — Oscar Wilde,
The Picture of Dorian Gray

I chose James Edmondson of OHno Type Co. as my design hero. I really look up to him for his unique eye and excellent sense of spacing and balance. A more detailed process of each piece is available at medium.com/@jaj2.


I enjoyed these projects immensely, but they also taught me that I much prefer print design to digital or time-based work.
