pin-up

am i becoming precitable? apologies but i can be a bit of a tart for vintage – especially if it’s bordering on kitsch. most of these pin-ups certainly fit the profile, and a couple of them are even rather classy. nothing like some fifties babes to start your weekend off on the good foot, though.

Currently a senior designer and typographer at Grey in New York, Craig is perhaps best known under his pseudonym, ‘Words are Pictures’. As his self-dubbed moniker suggests, he’s a typography nut who is excited by the forms and shapes of letters. This intrigue allows him to transform standard words into fully-realised, artistic statements. Not content with just one partner, Craig drafted in the typographic expertise of Sean Freeman and Alison Carmichael to come up with what they have named ‘Calligraffiti’.
