This was one of the coolest lettering projects ever.
About a month ago, I finished my new portfolio website using this jQuery plugin called Isotope. When I finished the site, I bought the commercial license, and sent David DeSandro an email thanking him for his amazing work. Isotope is truly an incredible resource.
David turned out to be quite a nice guy, and without my asking, he cleaned up a ton of my code for me! Alas, I have not the same passion for web development as I do for lettering, and my code was a selection of that sad fact. As a way of thanking him for his generosity, I offered some lettering services, which he accepted, but insisted on paying. Truly a class act.
David wrote more about the process on his blog. It’s one of the nicest things a client of mine has ever done.
For me, the coolest part is seeing his application of the logo. I am not the best graphic designer, and prefer to leave logo implementation in the capable hands of skilled specialists. Seeing incredibly creative and innovative ways of putting the logo on a page is quite a thrill. Please go to Metafizzy.co, and hover over the logo. Your mind will be blown.
