New piece in vis/res!

I'm so excited that the new issue of vis/res is out! I saw the first issue featured on notcot and was really into it. Issue 1 sold out really quick, so make sure you get your copy of issue 2 before it's gone! Craig Matchett is the captain of this ship and a generally awesome dude. I would seriously recommend trying to get into issue 3 ;) Craig gave me the brief at the beginning of January, with the theme being connectivity, virtual/real worlds, how our generation's identity is so reliant upon the internet, etc. Great thinking behind it, for sure. I really latched onto it and got to thinking about how our culture is a type of "non-culture." No one thing is really in fashion in any area (fashion, art, lifestyle,etc.) and I think that the internet has a huge role in this. For this piece I was really looking at how most generations before us can be labeled or defined pretty easily, like the Jazz Age of the 20s, the refined 50s, the sexual revolutionary 70s, etc. So this piece is an attempt to define our generation. Which, I also believe, is kind of impossible.

  1. Cool Jen, it does a good job of integrating a bunch of different type styles into a coherent design.
