It looks like Lydia Nichols has mastered her fine arts - and how! Check out these projects and more (thirteen total!) from her corner of the Good Measure MFA Thesis Exhibition at the Tyler School of Art Graphic and Interactive Design. Her colors and her facility with the printing process and layering make her work bright and crisp, and it all looks like wonderfully functional work as well. From her description of the projects:

Tyler’s program focuses heavily on authorship, so most of the projects include research, authorship, design, and illustration.

Personally, I don’t have the authority, but Lydia: you’re hired!

Identity for NYU Game Center X Attract Modethe collaboration of NYU Game Center & Attract Mode.

Corey Schmitz gets better with everything he does, and he was already plenty good. I also really like his identity work for Venus Patrol

This latest tragedy in Connecticut makes me feel helpless. Will our country ever seize control of this horrible gun mess? Small, innocent children are dead. What more can it possibly take?

Beautiful design for the worst possible reason, by Kyle T. Webster.

Chris Gardner, who drew our beautiful Drawn logo, shows some sketches and preliminary work for a logo he drew for a new iOS word game called Letter by Letter that launches today.

I’ve been playing a closed beta of the game for the past few weeks, and I’m complete addict. Its the perfect mix of Scrabble, Boggle, and Risk with short, but challenging turns that require some crafty strategy and a healthy vocabulary.

#275 Perpendicular – A new minimal geometric composition each day

This is my new favorite tumblr, via Jim Rugg, who apparently is the only place I get inspiration from lately. I love this bit from the “about” page:

"Why are you doing this?
I love it. I get a serious flow when I draw simple shapes, combine them and experiment until they start to “sing”. I’m a designer with all my heart. It’s an experiment. A journey into a world of possibilities.

And we figured out that 95 percent of designers that have ever lived are alive right now.” So how did he arrive at such a number? His father, a true scientist, would not stop until they had a quantifiable figure in their hands and, together, they had worked out the numbers using data provided by Berman’s many professional associations.
— words & image by David Berman
Assuming this figure is relatively the same for illustrators & cartoonists—meaning, there are 20x more people doing the same work as you, as there were a generation ago—I’m curious; how does this figure make you feel? Optimistic? Terrified of the competition? Dispirited?

How do you feel about having 20x more competition in your field than you may have had 30 years ago?

I just spend the whole morning struggling with how best to color skin tones in a project, so this post caught me… well, too late, I already finished. But I’m saving it in my “desert island” bookmarks folder. Many more colors/skins at the link itself

Help Ray Fenwick inch further towards having infinite variations on his logo (examples).
lemoatjuice:

Will you help me make more variations of my logo? 
Hello? Will you help me reach my target of “near infinity” logos? Will you help me populate image searches with these, my perfect language? It is starting to seem as though I may never realize this dream alone.
If you can use illustrator, and have 15 minutes to pump out a variation (examples) , I will send you a postcard in thanks. Then I will post your variation with credit.  
E-mail hello AT rayfenwick.ca if interested.  I will send you a template file with “instructions”.
Yrs infinitely,Ray
