While doing a google search on yesterday’s blog feaure, Anni Kelaigo, I came across the Estonian Association of Designers. The site is available in English if you can’t speak Estonian. The site featues a collection of Estonian designers who specialize in product, fashion, graphical, textile, advertising, glass, leather, jewellry, and interior design. I love how they mispelled “jewelry” and how they call graphic designers “graphical designers”
The photo shown above is one of the graphical designers. His name is Tiit.
That guy is kinds scary looking… Is there a law against smiling in Estonia?
His name is “Tilt”? That’s cool. I’m changing my name to a cool designer name, too. From now on, just call me “Skew.”
BTW, that’s not a misspelling. “Jewellry” is the British spelling for “jewelry.”
“Tilt”. I didn’t associate that with being a design reference. Tilt sounds so much cooler than saying “italic”.
I associate “Tilt” with pinball. When you shake the pinball machine, it shuts everything down and yells “TILT!”
This even happens on the XBOX game, “Pinball Hall of Fame: The Gottlieb Collection.” When you use the right or left trigger, it shakes the machine, and then the game stops and says “TILT!” But that was only on one of the pinball games. I haven’t tried it on all of them. I’d imagine that some of the games have a lower threshold for shaking the machine.
Maybe “tilt” is philosophical. Like he takes the norm or the ordinary or the obvious, and tilts it a little. Or he tilts himself, to look at things from a new angle.
i need to try pinball on the xbox. sounds interesting.
I bet the Estonian Tilt plays pinball on the xbox. Nine out of ten estonians like pinball on the xbox.
