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!
