Thirsty for Typography Thursday #10 (on a Friday) – Luke Lucas Puts It in Context

Phew, another crazy week... This week's Thirsty for Typography Thursday (brought to you on Friday) is all about fluid forms and context. Meet Luke Lucas, self taught designer who started out as a skateboarder who was fascinated by the art underside his deck by artists such as Jim Phillips and Vernon Courtlandt Johnson. Today, he work in Melbourne, Australia, and is quite busy balancing his duties as co-founder and executive director at Lifelounge with a diverse roster of freelance projects. His work is vibrant, fluid, and most importantly, always spot on. He looks at everything when designing a typeface, understanding what it needs to say and what atmosphere it needs to set in what context. Check out more of his fascinating work by visiting his website.

that swing city type is nasty awesome! I like it, but it makes me feel like a perv, so I try not to admit to liking it.
