Identifying a typographer/designer

RusselQ's picture

This is kind of a long shot, but I came across a site for a designer that is attributed to have started highly ornate typography designs. He takes simple serif/sans serif titles then adds ornate swirls/elements, etc. ...I wanted to show it to coworkers but I can't recall his name or site or where I found him (through a publication or blog). I know the description is vague but if anyone has ideas, please let me know. The closest design I could find that slightly resembles his work, but not to the extreme of what he does is the new Beatles "Love" logo (minus the silhouettes). click here

I think that you mean Si Scott.

Dang, that was fast. ...Yeah, that's exactly who I was thinking of.
Thanks!

Wow, you guys are good! Beware tho that (if subway ads are any indication) the swirly silo vaguely psychedelic look is going to feel very 2006/7 pretty soon. Current ads for the School of Visual Art and Samsung's Share a Soundtrack ad campaigns both use this style with flourishes, candy colors, flowers, etc almost to the point of being indistinguishable from each other.

Yes, that might be indeed. But the good thing about Si Scott is that he draws it by hand, on paper or transparents.
The style is probably going to be imitated a lot the coming period, but those will probably be inferior to the handdrawn originals.

Marian Bantjes is another person whose style of articulated decoration should be noted. Marian's style has evolved, but it remains gorgeous.

Yeah, I always like Marian Bantjes her work. Also alot of hand lettering going on in her work. I agree that she improves her work all the time, more so then Si Scott. But who knows what he comes up with in the future.

Yes, true. I wasn't saying that Si Scott won't evolve. I was only mentioning Marian's work.
