Item#140 2009: A Lovely ScavVintage

So there’s this thing called Scav Hunt, I’d explain it fully, but it’s not really the point of this post. Suffice it to say that Scav is a four-day scavenger hunt (of sorts) at the University of Chicago involving a list of 300-ish items which require participants to make, find, perform, solve, and every-other-verb the…

Inside my miiinnnddd. Wooo-oooooh.

These are slides I made for a presentation about my process creating a series of ten educational cards about different kinds of typography, designed to look like the cover and inside pages of fashion magazines. Hope you like it.  🙂 By Hannah Goldberg contact me at: Hannah@hannahgoldberg.com see more of my work at: hannahgoldberg.com and at: hedge610.myportfolio.com

Concepting Creative

I’m interested in too many things. I have a nasty habit of seeing a cool project and wanting to do my own version. It sounds nice in theory. Experimentation is the core of education. Variety is the spice of life. Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera… My latest project is creating a comic book. I’ve never tried anything…

Picking Nits

One of the most annoying parts of being a designer (for both myself and anyone with whom I spend a lot of time) is the constant awareness of bad design, or design faux pas, everywhere I look. It’s an itch. It’s annoying. And it’s very difficult not to scratch. So I’m just going to go…

One of those weird corners of the internet that’s actually really big and full of awesome people doing awesome things. Go Nerds. Yay!

TheRPF.com. ‘RPF’ stands for Replica Prop Forum. Wait, don’t leave! It’s cooler than it sounds. At it’s core, theRPF is a community of artists and engineers with really specific interests. These are smart, creative people who enjoy the minutiae of meticulously recreating a striking prop or costume with such a massive pre-assembled history to it…

Spin the Design Roulette Wheel

This past weekend I participated in an AIGA DC chapter event called Design Roulette, wherein participants are paired randomly, spin a wheel, and are assigned a theoretical client for which they must provide branding in 2hrs. My partner and I spun ‘United Land’ an environmental fund/lobbying organization based in San Francisco. Halfway through the event…

My First Mockup

The first project we did in my Web Design class was to mockup a redesign of a real website. I chose to do the NRDC’s .org because it was pretty tragic (they have since revamped on their own). The primary focal point of this design is the beautiful nature photography simply because splash pages are…

Do Fashion Buyers Dream of Luxury Sheep?

So here’s a piece of advice; not all advice is good advice. Mmmmhm, meta. Alright, this was the assignment: advertise wool (the textile. Have you seen those Cotton The Fabric of Our Lives(R) ads? — Like that) to fashion buyers in magazine ads that might run in a publication like Vogue. This is what I came…

Just to Re-Iterate

Logos take a loooooongggggg time. Even a quick treatment requires more thought than most people would imagine. The reason is that in order to make the best logo, you have to look at every possible option. And there are always a lot of options, even with the most restrictive brief. (If you doubt me, take a…

MOVIEMONEY .REDESIGN

So I saw Deadpool yesterday. It was pretty great, but that’s not the point. If you’re anything like me, then just seeing a movie isn’t enough. You listen to movie podcasts, obsessively read the Hollywood Reporter, and keep up with box office totals on BoxOfficeMojo.com. That last one is a bit of a problem for…
