Just a quick follow-up to GDC/BC BBQ Working Drawings entry. Here some further progress pics of me painting the final graphic on mylar with BBQ sauce.
To paint the BBQ sauce, I used Q-tips and some small brushes but most was done with the edge of a small spoon. The smell was pretty strong, I guess from the vinegar in the sauce.
After shooting the sauce painting, I added smaller sketched text digitally. Carefully cloning reflections and pushing some stuff around.

Spied these on my last press-check at Hemlock Printers. They're not exactly draw-downs but little ink smears that are part of the mixing process. Hemlock has a pretty sweet in-house ink lab. These were just lying around so I grabbed them. A big part of what they do is science but man, these are undeniable works of art. Accidental art? Maybe not. Judge for yourself.
Found this in my creative crypt and will now resurrect it here for you.
This was a branding project for a "network of registered audiologists and professional hearing instrument practitioners in Canada". Great company with a great service. In a nutshell, they test people's hearing and fit them for hearing aids.
Previously, the network had a collection of assorted independent logos. The new banner, Connect Hearing, is an existing Australian brand but they wished to have a separate identity in Canada.
Eventually, they made the decision to adopt the Australian brand so the work you see was shelved.

Final Proposed Direction
The final direction below involves sampling a person saying the company name. I tested different wave point to find the right 'resolution'.
Working together with a type designer, we put together a plan to record and design a phonetic alphabet of sonic characters based on sound waves. These would be used as sort of a corporate font. Mainly intended for business cards. See the font in action with the rendered names below.
