I’ve been home sick the past couple of days, and I keep forgetting to venture out and grab my mail. I finally forced myself up off the couch and schlepped out to the mailbox, only to discover: MY FIRST ISSUE OF UPPERCASE MAGAZINE WAS AWAITING ME!!!! Unbelievably excited to have their beautifully designed, insanely inspiring issue in my hands.
And when I got to pages 24 and 25, I almost passed out. Here’s why:
Behold the wonderfully beautiful stitched typefaces and designs of the infinitely talented EVELIN KASIKOV.
From Evelin’s website:
Printed Matter is a project about craft within the context of graphic design. My aim is to bring together craft and modern technology, and explore the possibilities for printing processes to be integrated with textile techniques. My main influences come from Swiss typography, Dutch book design and Estonian language – in no particular order. By mixing high and low tech, screen based media with slower crafts, I investigate different ways of seeing and experiencing visual messages.
