V is for Viper

I thought a Viper may be nice, mostly as the European Viper is one of the three native species of reptile in the UK and its protected. Other more common Vipers are endangered because of their soft skin, they have the softest skin of all snakes and this unfortunately is something that we humans find attractive to wear.

Help me Mr Wakefield, I need to find this ‘v’ for the body!  The ‘v’ used for the head is easy pickings, possibly Broadway or something similar.

The Lar Valley viper is found in Iran. It was thought extinct when a new dam flooded its only known location in the late 1970’s.  It was listed as endangered in 1983 and to this day is at high risk due to habitat decline and limited range of occurrence.

About Guy Featherstone

Inspired by watching his father hand-render 8pt type with a Rotring nib on the bottom of his drawings, Guy set his sights when he graduated in Design from Central Saint Martins in 1996. He then skipped over the pond to NYC to work for Gee Street Recordings, where he designed record sleeves and created identity work. On his return to London, he ventured into publishing, before landing in the exciting advertising agency HHCL (Campaign’s Agency of the Decade – 2000). His passion for letters, detail, precision and craft allowed him to create great work for brands such as Guinness, Egg, Sci-Fi and Tango - he soon became their Head of Art. He went travelling around the world in 2002, to top up his stimulus tanks and complete some personal projects. Returning to London in 2003, he was appointed Head of Design at Wieden Kennedy where he has gone on to create award-winning work for brands such as Nike, Aiwa, Honda, Yakult, The Guardian, Emeco, Nokia and Space.NK. Since arriving at W K he has created, and runs a department of like-minded, typo-craft junkies.
