PROPER VILLAINS COLLECTIVE ///

First of all, a happy Labor Day (US) to everyone! The big news is that tomorrow our good family over, the Proper Villains Collective, of which this blog is a production of, will be debuting our new site! The new site is the collaborative work of PVC members Archetype and Lars Amhoff (Kinkyform, The Substain)....

WE’RE ON FACEBOOK ///

Just a quick note to everyone that you can now become a “Fan” of The Takeover on Facebook. Check it out here.

PROPOSED COVERS ///

I’ve been tinkering with the idea of producing a separate portfolio, solely with book design work, through the Cargo Collective publishing platform. It’s still very much a work in progress, but you can see some of my (never-before-seen) proposed covers there. Book interiors will also be updated in the very near future. So check back...

NEW POSTERS ///

I thought I’d share two new posters I made recently. These posters were to announce the classes I’ll be teaching at Kean this fall. I’ll only be teaching Typography I now, but thought I’d share the other anyway. Thanks to YWFT for the free type. The quote on the Typography poster is by Ellen Lupton....

BE BACK SOON ///

Howdy! I’ve been away on a little family road trip for the last two weeks through the great Southeast. I’ll be back soon with plenty of new posts and great work to look at. Also, look out for some news about new contributors to The Takeover and our first giveaway. Stay tuned.

THE TAKEOVER GIVEAWAY ///

We’d like to present The Takeover’s first-ever, all-new, ground-breaking, hyphenated-adjectives-inducing GIVEAWAY! Stay tuned for more news as we prepare to announce the prizes for our first giveaway later this week.

A 24 PAGE BOOK ///

CANON D10 ///

“Canon breaks out of the digital camera box with their oddly-contoured Powershot D10. The waterproof camera shoots 12-megapixel photos, can withstand a four-foot drop with its shockproof design, and can be accessorized with different faceplates and even a carabiner clip.” Via Core77
