I give up!

Well, for now anyway. On the summer project I mean. This is a really important project for me, one that will influence the work I do in the second year, so I have to make sure it is great.

So I am taking my mind off it for a while and busying myself with tutorials for Illustrator, Photoshop and After Effects. But I am also tired of those, so I started thinking about setting myself some limits for the coming year. You see, that's the problem with this damned summer project - there are practically no limitations, so I am finding it incredibly difficult to get started. You need to impose certain rules in order to create but you sure as hell had better get those right in the first place.

I have been thinking for some time about limiting my print-based work to a maximum of ten typefaces. This morning I allowed myself to indulge in some stream-of-consciousness bullshit, by the end of which I had my list.

Check it out if you can be arsed...
