Blogmas Day 10: DESIGN FEATURE | Joshua PhillipsWednesday, December 10, 2014
After having a look about on his website I was definitely most drawn to his hand lettering and volume projects but the other areas of his design are amazing too. There is a lot of variety in his work but yet still a consistent style. A lot of it seems to revolve around the typography used which is one aspect I think drags people into design.
Throughout a lot the pieces, photography is an important aspect like the type too. I really love the collaboration Volume project that he worked on with photographer, Matthew Walton. The type and photos compliment each other so well that I don't know what's more beautiful, the lettering or photography! I would really love to try and do a project like this solely by myself. I think it would really advance and define my skills in both the areas.
Throughout looking at Phillips work, it has really made me think about doing more work I want to do. Through my University work it is a lot more digital based which I knew going into it so I definitely feel I need to get my game face on and do some personal/competition briefs to expand my work.
What do you think about Joshua's work? What people have you found recently that have really inspired you?
