The Seinfeld Project

// Yada Yada Yada
Cheers to the infamous show that both began and ended its run with conversations about shirt buttons. So what show am I referring to (if you didn’t already guess from the title of this post)? The one and only Seinfeld! As a kid of the 90’s Seinfeld and Friends were staples of my generation. Although I was more of a Friends girl, I still watched my fair share of Seinfeld episodes, and can still remember all of the memorable lines uttered by the truly hilarious cast. Which is why, I was thrilled when I found The Seinfeld Project, created by designer and hand-letterer, Marlene Silveira. The aim of the project? To create a hand-lettered poster with one line from every episode (180 total) of Seinfeld. Check out my mini interview with Marlene and learn all about her awesome Seinfeld filled adventure.

Q:What inspired you to create this project?
A: I wanted to stay productive while I wasn’t at my 9-5 job or doing freelance work so I figured I would create a personal project. I had always loved Seinfeld since I was a kid, to this day I can re-watch an episode 20 times and find it funnier than the last time I watched it. So I figured I needed an excuse to watch all 180 episodes again so here it is.

Q: If you had to pick your favorite Seinfeld episode, what would it be?
A: Having to pick one favorite episode is rather difficult. Anyone who watches Seinfeld or rather loves Seinfeld like myself would say the same. If I really had to pick one, it would be the “Soup Nazi” or “the contest” or how about all of them.

Q: How long do you anticipate the project taking to complete?
A: I’m hoping to finish the project by this time next year, maybe sooner. My rate at the moment has been rather slow due to other projects. If I can push 2-3 a week I think I can make my deadline.

Q: What do you hope to accomplish by working on this project? 
A: My initial thought for this project was to master my love for lettering and illustration. I found I hadn’t really pinpointed a style that I was comfortable with to call my own. This project has progressed my thought process, problem solving, computer and hand skills, not to mention a few freelance gigs.

Q: Is there anything else you would like to add?
A: I know everyone in the creative industry says it but the best way to find yourself is through personal work and to keep practicing. That’s the whole reason why I’m doing this project. Doing something that I love, couldn’t make me more happier.

Homeland Vintage Jazz Record Covers

During last night’s Golden Globe Awards, Homeland won Best Drama Series, Claire Danes won Best Actress in a Drama Series, and Damian Lewis won Best Actor in a Drama Series. These awards alone sum up why Homeland has to be one of my favorite shows on television. It has a phenomenal cast, fantastic writers, and all the components that make this edge of your seat drama worth watching. In honor of the show, designer Ty Mattson, set out to create a series of designs to celebrate this award-winning series. Playing off of the subtle theme of jazz that appears in the storyline, he designed 12 vintage record covers inspired by the TV series. Check them out below!

Fall TV Is Back!

I must admit, I am a bit obsessed with television. I watch entirely way too many shows, and every fall I get suckered into new ones! As a graphic designer, I love seeing all of the promotional art for the shows—and in a way I must admit it sways me towards either watching the show or skipping it. I managed to find most of the promotional posters for the all the TV shows coming to our screens this fall (thank you—most of the posters are for new shows, with a few promos for returning favorites. Which posters do you like the most? Does promotional art sway you towards checking out a show? Comment away!
