Outlying

Outside of common design practice and common design mediums, where projects are initiated by clients or other entities, these works stem from our own interests in and notions of identity and popular culture, and of language and language components/typography.

Flip-pant | Star, Pyramid, Rectangular Prism | Based on the Filipino holiday craft of rolled cutout paper modules, Flip-pant presents the traditional star shape as well as new forms, facilitated by modifications made to the core module shape. Flip is an anti-Filipino sentiment and term that has been reclaimed by some Filipino-Americans.


Meta Memes | Explores the recognizability of the typography and language (often well-known dialogue quips from film, television, and social media) that are associated with memes.

Viva Grammar | Attempts to perpetuate better grammar through the use of humor and a ubiquitous medium (tee shirts).


Type Prêt-à-Porter | Collaboration with Nora Renick-Rinehart | Type is utilized to form the main structure or feature in clothing items—items of color and style comprising aspects of an exterior face, or outward identity.
