This week the @Booooooom Instagram is being handed over to Sydney-based typographer Gemma O’Brien. Normally I’d put the person’s name over top of the intro image with a font but it would be an injustice to do so here as the beauty of Gemma’s work is that it is hand-lettered.
She recently had a brilliant solo show which featured her illustrations on barf bags called “You Make Me Sick”. Her job this week is to have fun and inspire you and I’m sure she will do lots of both. Please give her a warm welcome.
In 1983, writer John Hull began making audio recordings of his daily experiences after becoming completely blind.
The New York Times produced this gorgeous visual piece to accompany a selection of Hull’s thoughts from three years of audio cassette recordings.
Watch “Notes on Blindness” below!
On Friday I’ll add any submissions that come in this week and pick a couple winners who will each win the entire set of tees I made for Aritzia.
Enjoy all the submissions below:
