“The Numbers project was a daily project in 2013 to elevate my mental process of creative thinking, as well as simply to create daily.
“Technically the goal was to keep it conceptually simple, which is why numbers became the subject matter. To be exact 0-365 consecutively, 1 a day for 2013”
This daily project was born in 2013 as a way to push the creative thinking process, but in the end, it also resulted in stretching how we see numbers. Each day a logo was designed for the number of the corresponding day of the year, 0-365 consecutively.
The main constraint was to make each number a uniform color, a nod to classic logo design. To mark the 10th anniversary of the project Brandon documented the project in book form and has a Kickstarter to take one home.
To kick it off Messenger will display some of these works to celebrate the accomplishment, join us for Hors D'oeuvres, Messenger Coffee, local beer and music featuring Eddie Moore.
