Inspired by old world typography that imbues the spirit of baseball, an illustrative, typographic treatment was created that envelopes the entire circumference of the bat.

The piece was selected for the Type Directors Club Annual and received a judge's choice award, which you can learn more about here.


Check out the new series by Pawel Nolbert, focused on the topic of perception of reality and the creation of subjective, distorted reality in social media. Constructed. "We never recall things exactly as they happened. We remember them in our personal way. One, true version of reality that doesn't exist."

The creation of the series raised questions like: where does the "photo" end and "graphic" begin? Which use tools make it a photograph, and which program or tool transform it into a Photoshop illustration? Does it make sense to create that distinction anymore?
