If you're starting a graphic design project from scratch or refining what you already have, a successful campaign will always pay close attention to its typography. Whether your aim is for expressive display type or strictly functional and refined, I can provide specialized knowledge in type design.
Specializing in book and editorial projects has led me to design several books from top to bottom. In addition to the overall typesetting, I consult with clients and help make decisions on the size and shape of the book, number of pages, the type of paper used, and many other aspects such as binding and cover design.
Developing fonts is a passion of mine. I have just started to make them available for free downloads. My first one, Cut-Point, is a 92-character dingbat font made up of knives, blades, and swords and can be downloaded here:
I have been able to help companies greatly improve their typography without losing the overall look and feel of their original layout. I do not push to change how the typography looks overall, only to adjust it so that there are no fundamental errors in its layout. This helps to elevate the entire presentation.
A passion of mine is to conceptualize and design sets of cards. The tactile nature of design is tragically lacking in our day and age, and the physicality of a deck of cards is unparalleled. Right now I'm revealing new designs for a sex toy derivative of the Rider Waite known as The Vibrating Tarot.
I work with many companies looking for professional typesetting, type refinement, or basic consultation. A short list of clients include The Art Gallery of Hamilton, McMaster University, and ReMax Escarpment, to smaller businesses like The Framing and Art Centre, and The Burlington Denture Clinic.
Specializing in typography and having completed a Bachelor of Design at York University/Sheridan College's Joint Program in Design, Pallor Publishing's creative director Frank Lawrence enjoys nothing more than typographic endeavours, and is always looking for new and creative projects that can benefit from the implementation of sensible and impeccable typography.
I have been able to help companies see that they can greatly improve their typography without losing the overall look and feel of their original layout. Small adjustments can always be made to remedy fundamental errors in most layouts. I help you avoid typographical faux pas and help to elevate your entire presentation.
It is the typographer's job to be invisible by eliminating any chance for further refinement. To create a perfect crystal goblet out of typography. When done properly, it is not the typography that is noticed, rather it is the subject matter that is elevated.
