What do you see when you investigate your surroundings? Do you
see stark walls in a bare room, or a table with an unfilled glass?
How about a desolate road on a dreary autumn day?
This month's contributor Nuttakit, who hails from Thailand,
views the unexpected where others may perceive nothing. Instead of
emptiness he sees vibrant textures rich with depth, mesmerizing
repeating patterns dancing with rhythm, and beautiful dynamics
yearning to be captured and brought to life. He loves investigating
further to reveal fullness in seemingly unexpected places.
When asked about his motivation for capturing some of the rich
imagery used in his photography-he explains, "The beauty of
everything around me at the time makes me want to keep it." This
fundamental curiosity is the fuel that fires commercial and fine
arts photographers alike.
If you're still having a hard time finding splendor amongst your
surroundings, he leaves us with words of inspiration, "Many of my
friends laugh when they see an empty wall or blank sheet of paper
as result of my work… but all around us, everything has value and
meaning in itself. Use your creativity to find new things."

CONTEST ENDS OCTOBER 31, 2013
if you dare!
In the summer of 2012, eight designers, Andre Ogradǎ, Felix
Hornoiu, Vlad Neuman, Nicu Duta, Alex Beltechi, Octavian Budai,
Koma and Vian Peanu, got together in Bucharest and made a pact that
they wanted to hone their skills and "share the results with
everybody." What came out of their hard work was "The Type
Project." A type and lettering collaborative undertaking, which
sought to push each designer to a new level. Not only was this
project taken on with the impression that it would strengthen each
designer individually, but that it would also provide exposure in
their "neck of the woods" that had been decidedly lacking.
The outcome? An amazing website that showcases an
incredibly vast selection of typography, which the artists try to
update weekly. Not only does the website display the work of the
creators, but also provides an outlet for any type lover who hopes
to experiment with their lettering work. Thus, the project that was
created to push a few, has in fact, inspired many.
Check out their website here.
