Mozart Piano Concerto No. 9 – Bauhaus Kandinsky-style Art Work Print

Posted in Dark Designs, Dark Illustrations with tags , on November 23, 2014 by darkvotum

For musical fans, if you like Mozart like I do you’ll appreciate this print of musical masterpiece of Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 9 K.271. Mozart’s work is about speed, structure and musical perfection.  He composed this piece at the age of 21.

The design print is based on Kandinsky’s musical translation of geometric objects during his Bauhaus tenure, and it is explained as follows:

The work is scored for solo piano, 2 oboes, 2 horns, and strings.

It consists of 3 movements:

1. Allegro, in E-flat major and common (C) time 10:30
2. Andantino, in C minor and 3/4 time 12:00
3. Rondo (Presto), in E-flat major and cut time 10:00

The first movement opens, unusually for the time, with interventions by the soloist, anticipating Beethoven’s Fourth and Fifth Concertos. As Girdlestone (1964) notes, its departures from convention do not end with this early solo entrance, but continue in the style of dialogue between piano and orchestra in the rest of the movement. Mozart wrote two cadenzas for this movement.

The second movement is written in the relative minor key. In only five of Mozart’s piano concertos is the second movement in a minor key (K. 41, K. 271, K. 456, K. 482, and K. 488. K. 41 is an arrangement). Mozart wrote two cadenzas for this movement.

The third movement which opens with the solo piano is in a rondo form on a large scale. It is interrupted, surprisingly, by a slow minuet section (a procedure Mozart would repeat with his 22nd concerto, 1785, also in the key of E-flat). The work ends in the original tempo.

I hope you listen this musical work while looking at the design to appreciate this incredible masterpiece.  Of course, you can purchase the recommended frame print medium size in my RedBubble portfolio. I think the design is very unique like no other and it will enhance your room or office.  Thanks for your consideration.


Improved Amarcord Font – Fellini Movie Title Typography

Posted in Dark Fonts, Dark Typography with tags , on November 19, 2014 by darkvotum

Amarcord font is a commercial typeface that I decided to improve due to its popularity for my clients. The design font is a sans serif typeface which I believe it falls in the Deco or Avant Garde categories.

The font has a great application in display titles, and usually is selected for Italian restaurants and modern fashion shows. In the new version, I have added the numbers and more kerning in the alphabet for better word printing.

Amarcord font can be purchased with its license through PayPal using your credit card and the font is available for Windows and Mac platforms. For more information and immediate font delivery, contact me at – darkvotum@gmail.com

Posted in Dark Fonts, Dark Typography with tags , , on November 16, 2014 by darkvotum

Girls Camp font is a revival font from the titles of the popular movie The Parent Trap (1961). I decided to digitize this font because it is a more complete font with characters, including lower letters in the alphabet map.

It can be used for great titles in movies and posters, and it has intelligent kerning offering an infinite way in your design presentations.

The font is a commercial font with its available license, and can be purchased with immediate delivery to your email through PayPal using your credit card.
