"Capture the vibe"...was inspired while I was listening to a favourite aussie hip-hop group going by the name of the hilltop hoods and "vibe" was part of the lyrics in one of their tracks. At the time I was experimenting with various calligraphy and typographic styles such as ornaments and flourishes for various projects and accomplished this in my spare time.

Sorry for the late reply.. been elsewhere lately

yes i have a soft spot for typography. I still look at this piece and think...'it could be so much better'
I would definitely love to collaborate on something like this. Maybe a mix of type+photography – Just say the word. :D

good typography... that's a hard thing to learn... comes a lot from experience and knowing what works and what doesn't... keeping it simple is usually a key. Easiest way to learn is to experiment and train yourself to know what looks best... all comes in time.

sure you can send a photo if you like, probably would be more of a collaboration in that sense. I recently downloaded some photos from a image library that i was going to manipulate and make into a piece. (but you can choose to send your own if you don't like any of these ...ps. I have a account at work so I get the images for free, so don't worry about cost or anything :D) my email is on the my da page if you want to send something.

images downloaded already:
