Your Art Here presents OOPS by artist Derek Springston for the Massachusetts Ave. Billboard Project. The billboard will be mounted thru August 2009.
TALK TYPE was created somewhat as a conceited joke, it is not literal. As a graphic designer, I have been researching and studying type my whole career, throughout school and professionally. Therefore, I know quite a bit about typography and the typefaces themselves. I don’t expect everyone to know as much about letter-forms as designers do, we have an affinity for type. Trust me, I will talk to you if you cannot discuss type. But if you do want to talk about typography, you just found yourself a new friend.
Derek Springston was born and raised in the small town of Holland located in southern Indiana. He is expecting to graduate in May 2009 with a BFA degree in Graphic Design from Indiana University. After school, he plans on venturing away from Indiana and try to make a living in the field of design.
