Memories welcomes on board Nitzan. A NYC based designer specializing in identity design, brand application and art direction for the music industry. Collaborations include galleries, media start-ups and other designers on both promotional and self-initiated projects.
Here’s a nice story. Memories contributor Simon Spilsbury told fellow illustrator/designer Patrick Walker that he was doing an image for Memories, and shortly afterwards we got an email from Patrick asking to get involved. His studio, Dust, do some amazing work in illustration and print design so we really wanted to get them on board. Luckily, we had a story slot for them and we sent off a brief. So we’re welcoming Patrick, Pamela and Alun at Dust to the project. Can’t wait to see what they come up with. Please check out their website here.

I am proud to show you my OFFF2010 Catalogue submission inspired by the theme ‘Nostalgia For A Past Future’.
My submission made it into the OFFF2010 Catalogue, which was available at the venue La Grande Halle de la Villette in Paris.
The catalogues features artists from the OFFF2010 event including loopita, openroom and guest artists selected from submissions.
A personal thanks to Greig Anderson Creative Director at Effektive for posting his memories submission on the Effektive website.
This is a rare chance to feast your eyes on a memories submission as we are holding back the majority of artwork for the book.
The submission was inspired by a personal memory found in my story. It is amazing to see the project coming together and how individual artists portray each story in print. This piece sums up my story with huge visual impact. I love it!

The design duo Simon Dovar and Nils Davey are Binary & The Brain, and they’ve thrown their weight behind Memories project. Formerly Jawa & Midwich, they do all kinds of design work including book covers and music packaging, as well as online work. The image you see here is from their self-initiated poster range. Another interesting thing about them is that their studio is trans-Atlantic and transcontinental. Simon is based in London and Nils in Los Angeles. We’ve asked them to create an image for a story called The Fox Cubs by leukaemia survivor Sarah Yates. Our thanks go out to Binary & The Brain. Please take a look at their website here.
Font Aid IV: Coming Together, a Collaborative Typeface
The Society of Typographic Aficionados (SOTA) is announcing the launch of Font Aid IV, a project uniting the typographic and design communities in raising funds to expedite relief efforts in Haiti. Everyone is encouraged to help the cause by spreading the word to friends and colleagues.
Type designers, graphic designers and other artists from around the world are invited to contribute artwork to be included in a typeface created exclusively for the Font Aid IV effort. The theme of Font Aid IV is ‘Coming Together’ which we will represented though a font consisting entirely of ampersands. Coming Together will be made available for sale, with all proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders. SOTA, a US-based non-profit, is acting as a non-partisan organizing body to help coordinate the effort and ensure all funds are distributed appropriately.
Bellow is my ampersand icon submission.
