Sorry for the slow down, I was out of town this weekend. My grandparents just turned 90 and 91, respectively, and we all flew in to celebrate their birthdays.
I just discovered a great body of work by Artiva Design, an Italian creative studio. Much of their work is monochromatic, and uses line, space, and type as image quite effectively to create motion and energy out of just ink and paper. They make really beautiful print work. Definitely something to aspire to.
