James and Michael Fitzgerald are The Project Twins, a graphic design and illustration studio based in Cork City, Ireland. They “design posters, make books, create illustrations, develop brands,” and do a whole lot more.
Right now, their illustrative amazingness can be seen in their “A-Z of Unusual Words.” The Project Twins created 26 Giclee Prints, one for each letter of the alphabet. Each letter begins the unusual word being illustrated.
What I love about the A-Z collection is that each piece celebrates a strange word by giving it such a strong visual component. The unusual (and neglected) word is not just illustrated but celebrated. Who can forget what scripturient means? Especially after seeing the dark red ink contrasting sharply against the white fountain pen.
Enjoy the following glimpses into their project.
Thanks, James and Michael, for giving us a glimpse of your extraordinary illustrative art.
