What do all of these three subjects have in common? The answer is this past Saturday, October 23rd. As a member of the Los Angeles Chapter of the Graphic Artists Guild, I helped to plan the Guild-sponsored “Evening with Michael Doret,” a splendid presentation by the accomplished graphic/type designer and letterer. It was a fascinating […]
Been spending quite a few Saturdays, including today, over at the International Printing Museum in Carson, the incredible local resource that will play home next week to the 2nd Annual LA Printers Fair. Alyssa has been creating block prints on her own for some time, so we brought her linoleum blocks (as well as a […]
Last night, House Industries held an evening event at the Eames Office to officially unveil their new typeface set, Eames Century Modern. This morning, I had the opportunity to spherically photograph House’s temporary exhibit, preserving it for posterity.

Another January First has come and gone, and in the spirit of commemorating round trips through the Gregorian calendar, we at three steps ahead would like to wish all of you out there a happy, peaceful, and design-filled year. Why the Swiss-Army-style pocketknife, you ask? Well, over the year I’ve realized that one of the […]
For over two years now, I’ve been working on a new typeface that I’ve named Austin Sans. Based roughly on the geometry of my previous release, Bauer House, Austin Sans feels quite a bit more contemporary, without losing its Art Deco residue.
