Drive poster

I am happy to announce a self-initiated poster I designed after watching the movie “Drive”. Dark version (with the lights off) supposed to be printed using Glow in the dark ink. The movie has an awesome soundtrack which helped me out a lot during the process of creating.

Two versions of the poster:

Type - 字体

Shazam! I’m happy to announce the new project we made in collaboration with Muei san. Deeply inspired by the works of Switzerland sculptor Markus Raetz we decided to erase a very solid boundary between Eastern and Western typography.

For this project we tried a lot of innovative media that we never used before. Everything started in MAYA software (a very big thanks to Sanzhar Murzin who helped us to revise my Google SketchUp attempts, make sure to check out his personal website sanjmur.com it’s going to be up and running pretty soon), later on we continued with a 3D printing, after the 3D form was ready we went on and made a quick photo shooting and proceeded to photo editing. Alongside with photos a various types of visual identity has been created including business cards, posters, letter samples and a short video.

For Ido Portal

I’m stoked to announce my most recent poster! Anyone who has ever trained with Ido Portal knows his famous phrase: “You are weak, my friend… ” So here it is, my silent motivator which I will print in the nearest future and hang it at my training place. Thank you, Ido Portal, I am really fortunate to know you. You are the pure inspiration.

I want to thank Chris Linhares for the great photo of Ido he took during one of the workshops which I used for reference. Thumbs up! I’ve also included some high-res and process screenshots down there if you are interested. Enjoy!

The enemy

Here is a fun project I had on my mood board for quite a while already. The idea popped into my head after the Vipassana meditation course that we took in India. Who is he…? The most powerful and the only enemy of mine?

That was so great. Nice weather, photography, me busting out capoeira moves.. Thank you, YeBing for helping me out with photo session, really appreciate it.

How to silkscreen a T-shirt

Recently I’ve got the first silkscreen experience while making a T-shirt design for the Capoeira hangzhou group. The process is really interesting especially with the Chinese worker’s creativity tending to cut manufacturing costs by any means. Have a look…

Printing our design on a transparent plastic paper.

Preparing the “silk screen”.

Drying.

After the wax is completely dry we need to “burnout” our design from the waxed silk screen. On the picture: The guy is putting our design and the screen on top of UV lamps.

Then he said: “Actually this kind of light is a bit dangerous so I’d better cover the whole thing with my coat… ”

Washing out the wax from the “burned” spots. Making a stencil…

White spots – no wax.

Using the pressurized water jet to reveal a very thin lines.

They use chopsticks to stir the paint.

Drying again and covering unwanted spots with a sticky tape.

Defining the place of our design on T–shirt.
