Alumni - David Millhouse

David is a designer who lives and works in Paris. He has lectured at various universities in Europe. His passion is for typeface design leading to commissions for identities, websites, print and film.
He is an alumni from the course and gave a Lecture and workshop for us back in January 2014.

He has sent us some more news about his forthcoming work....

I would like to tell you all about the book launch of Graffiti général, published by Éditions Carré in Paris. This book has been typeset in my new typeface Obiter.

Graphic design team Change is good have used Obiter for the cover and as the body-font for this book, they commissioned me to do an Italic version of it also.

Graffiti général gives an overview of the best Parisian graffiti artists. Iconic buildings and locations are used in this book as a vehicle to describe the scene.

As a former graffiti artist myself, I relate strongly to the content of this book. Therefore, the use of Obiter in this context feels like coming full circle. The city is different, yet the visual language is parallel.

I am happy that Graffiti général is being launched at one of the best Parisian art/design bookstores; Artcurial on the Rond-Point des Champs-Élysées.

Best Regards,
