While Shelagh was helping me get my iPhone aps up to date, her alterego – Inger Færøl – was over at Enhet Én, helping the crew there make avatars of themselves. They kindly included an avatar of myself.
With Shelagh back in San Francisco, I was pressed into helping Karsk Skjenning when he needed some help He is making a limited edition book(let) “Hyllest til Hylla” (Homage to Hylla, a village of about 370 people in Inderøy municipality). The 20 page A5 booklet is a collection of photographs taken there in 2015.
First, I cropped the rectangular photos in Adobe Photoshop, to square ones that Karsk prefers. Then he wanted an avatar for himself, similar to the ones Inger had made the week before, along with a logo for Enhet Én – Trøndelag. While I was at it, I made a derivative logo for Unit One – Cascadia. This involved Adobe Illustrator. Once this material was available, I then used Adobe InDesign to pageset the photographs.
Hyllest til Hylla remains a work in progress, because Karsk is having a hard time deciding on photo captions.
Here is Karsk’s avatar, and the logos for Enhet Én – Trøndelag and Unit One – Cascadia. Happy McLellan, was very happy with the typeface selected. It is called Elephant, a fat face, ultra-bold serif typeface for digital display purposes. It was designed by Matthew Carter in 1992, and was originally released by Microsoft.
