Procrastinating my writing by way of typecasting...
Happy ITAM, Deek! May we steal your fine badge? :-)
Same question, but from North America! ;u)
Wow, Deek! Clearly you are having WAY too much fun with the new typeface elements. This is great!
Great badge! Look what you started. Now we all want one!
Well, of course, you can steal the badge. But let me tell you a little about it first. The typewriter art is done by Nicole Ray. Ryan Adney @ Magic Margin discovered her first. She did some artwork for his blog. I asked her to draw my favorite typewriter in order for me to make a rubber stamp. She did a wonderful job!!! And I highly recommend her.Now, the text around the badge isn't actually from my Selectric (although that would have been cool, although the "It's here" is my new Print & Publisher type element). I actually used Richard Polt's Olympia Script TTF and wrapped it around the drawing using Photoshop CS2 (yeah, old, but that is what I have).So there you have it, artwork with a little of my own graphic design brought to you by way of a rubber stamp (which will be a common occurrence on my ITAM letters).If you want the hi-res badge graphic, I do have it as a jpg, so just e-mail me at djkoepke (at) gmail (dot) com and I am happy to share!
So I replaced mine, which is a bit too graphic, with yours. Thanks!
What does one do for ITAM?
@maschinengeschriebenNo problem! Keep spreading the word!@CrystalIts really up to you. Write (more) letters, brave some public typing, set up a type-in, give a typer away...there are a myriad of ways to appreciate typewriters and share what you love with others!
Just borrowed your badge and I'm using it in my blog :) Thanks!
Glad it worked out!! And thanks so much for the kind words!
