Daily Deviation
Daily Deviation
January 27, 2010
Burdened by ~dylanroscover Also suggested by *Taro13 who says: "Dylan Roscover is a brilliant graphic designer who creates a wide variety of striking digital media pieces. This portrait of Obama uses typography to expertly illustrate the pressure and incredible burdens our president has to deal with while in office. The craftsmanship and composition of this typography portrait is remarkable and definitely deserves a standing ovation"

And by =PatrickRuegheimer: "This is stunning, the use of dark and bright fonts gives this a real great 3D contrast."

What should I say more? Dylan is a young and experienced Text Art designer. Ever since he got his first DD here (which was almost a year ago), tons of people got inspired by him. It's with great honor to give him a Daily Deviation again, and I really recommend you to watch him. I'm sure you'll hear his name even more often in the future. He's a Text Art designer that will never disappoint you!

This is beautifully executed! In fact, I'm in a typography class right now, and I have to do some research on a typographic artist that we find interesting, and I'm interested in writing about you and your work. My essays won't get published or anything, but we have to do some typography with info about our artist as well. May I place this image into a "magazine page" that I'm making for class? Again, it won't get published and anyone who reads it will know it's yours. Again, beautiful work, and I really love how he looks troubled, like he has stresses that the people forget about.
can any one please tell how to create this kind of awesome typography [link]
