For the month of August, a series of guests will be filling in on DWL with daily posts. Today’s posts come to you from Jason Johnson who fights the good fight as an Art Director/Designer at TunnelBravo. For more from Jason, check out his portfolio or shots on Dribbble

David Smith is a traditional ornamental glass artist who’s work is astounding. Since 1984 Dave has been creating some of the most beautiful signs in the UK. Recently he was commissioned to design the cover art for the Born & Raised album from John Mayer. Seeing Dave create this cover by hand is truly magical. You can purchase the font he designed on his site and see much more of his work. Here is a short documentary showing Dave’s process.
