This font blows

I should probably explain... I have always dreamt of creating my own font so in order to gain some inspiration, I began capturing photos of everyday, man-made objects which resemble letters of the alphabet.

Once I had captured every letter I began tracing them in Illustrator using the pen tool. I then chose my favourite shape - a leaf blower in the form of a 'b' - and devised designs for all 26 letters of the alphabet based on this.

This was certainly a challenging task, but it was also extremely rewarding. I love finding beauty and hidden meaning within seemingly mundane inanimate objects, so it was a great to create such a unique type font from such an unexpected source.

I have always loved the idea of photo booths at partys and weddings (or any special occasion, really). All of the guests seem to really enjoy using the various props on offer and never fail to leave some great memories.

I spent the day before Pete's 30th making super hero action signs (think - 'BAM!' and 'Pow!'), as well as novelty mustaches and spectacles on thin dowel. I also bought a 'able 300 DX' tripod to hold my Canon 450 D in place, making it easy for guests to stand behind the camera and take photos themselves.

The results were amazing and to finish off, I edited the photos to give them a vintage feel.
