It’s official: I’m a geek. No, better yet: a DesigNerd.
It seems that I just can’t get away from over-designing. You’d think that I’d take advantage of a break from school and work, but noooo… I have to complicate my life.

In true stalker fashion, magazine cut-out letters seemed like an easy alternative, but, to make it more interesting—and in the spirit of losing the most sleep possible—I said to myself, “Wouldn't it be fun if all the letters were in the same typeface?”
