End of an era

BLOG POSTED BY LUKE ON 07 OCT 2011 @ 03:01 PM



It is with sadness that I inform you that after 12 years of being at the creative helm of Lifelounge I've decided to move on. I'm proud of what we've created and what I've contributed to this business and the decision to part ways was one of the hardest I've ever had to make. Thanks to each and every one of you for your support over the years. 

Lounger forever,

Luke Lucas

Paste-up wall love at Revolver

BLOG POSTED BY LUKE ON 04 SEP 2011 @ 11:15 AM


I was recently invited to contribute a piece for the revolving poster wall at Melbourne late/all night venue and lounge Revolver Upstairs. It's a little cheesy but my piece tells of a love story that happens to be my own... for real. It was almost 11 years ago after many a drunked/merry conversation on the crusty couches of Revolver that I came to the realisation that the lady who had been commanding my attention for the last few months was the person I wanted to share my everything with. This typographic piece is a personal recollection of the precise moment that this realisation struck me heart.



If you're interested, the artwork will be up for the remainder of September so if you're in the neigbourhood pop in.

btw. thanks Jonas for the pic.

I know I've posted on her works before but I just stumbled across these timelapse videos of Dana Tanamachi working up her amazing custom chalk lettering creations. Watch and learn.

A Type Of Show, Preview

BLOG POSTED BY LUKE ON 16 AUG 2011 @ 04:17 PM


Here's a little cheeky preview of the piece that I submitted for A Type Of Show exhibition that launches tomorrow night at Kind Of Gallery in Sydney... It's the first piece that I've created from perspex and I've got to say that it's a great medium for type related stuff. There are some limitations with the level of detail you can go to on your line work but at the same time it can make some relatively simple shapes pop from the wall. Super shiny.

Here's a bit of a preview of some of the other pieces too... looks like it's going to be a great show.

A Type of Show

BLOG POSTED BY LUKE ON 02 AUG 2011 @ 08:56 AM

To coincide with type legend Tony DiSpigna's visit to Australia, and coincidental visit of Alex Trochut at the same time,  Like Minded Studio and Kind of Gallery are running a typographic design exhibition on Wednesday, 17 August featuring works by yours truly and some of Australia's most progressive artists and designers. Should be a great show.






For those that are interested also on the following day Tony will be giving a talk on the craft at COFA Lecture Theatre in Paddington, Sydney and for a select few there's also an industry workshop on the Friday. Tickets and more information here.
