A wonderful part of being a graphic designer is the ability to make things, as obvious as that may sound. Most of my work is done on a computer, so I find it refreshing to create something tangible with my own hands. It is a process that is both soothing and gets my heart beating. I love it. Thankfully, I have the incredibly talented and generous Cynthia Warren as a wonderful friend. She was kind enough to help me paint and mount this little personal project. Being in Cynthia's studio is like being in Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. It's the home of the Everlasting Gobstopper of design confectionery.

Hand-set typography, hand-painted in-store signage

This menu was printed on antique paper and then hand painted. The imagery depicts the spring flowers found in the garden of the Chancellor's official residence on the UC Berkeley campus. The typography was hand-set to create a feeling akin to that of antique botanical illustrations of old.
