Gareth W. Rice

I love this cover designed by Gareth W. Rice for a series of short stories written by Zach Watkins. Rice gives special thanks to a programmer for the coding of the particles on the cover, and so I can only assume that was created with Processing or a similar language. You know I love that. [...]

The fun calligraphy and illustration for The [...]

So I was perusing through some old bookmarks this morning — just taking a glance at some of the links my past self might have thought my future self would like to reference again — when I happened to cross this fairly recognizable branding project. So now I know who did this. See more work [...]
