XXIII Dynasty Collection Campaign by PhreshSoldier XXIII Dynasty Collection Campaign by PhreshSoldier
This was a GOD Inspired Designs
*Updated Nov 8, 2012*

The great words of Michael Jordan "I'm Back". Two years ago I created a well-known "Michael Jordan Typeface Design" that went viral across the world and was featured on many top websites like "Yahoo! Sports and Marca.com". Two years later something in my spirit told me to recreate it, because it wasn't my best. So I recreated the "Michael Jordan Typeface Design" from the ground up, all done by hand that features more than 15,000 text entries of MJ's many accomplishments, signature moments and quotes. I gave the design
a whole new look & feel and made it much sharper than before. Not to mention, a better text flow around the contour
of the face and body of the design that makes the photo seem realistic.

The "XXIII Dynasty Collection" is a series of Michael Jordan typeface designs. It features three different types of styles: a Retro,Two-Tone and Stealth. If you would like to buy a 36x48 canvas size print, please contact me via e-mail (godinspireddesigns@live.com).

Thank You, and nice to meet you as well Artsouls 143. Nice piece of work you got there, for a 1st try doing a typeface portrait. But maybe next time this tutorial I just google for you should be able to get you started [link] . It will give you the techniques you need to pull off the similar effect, so I hope this work for you.

Dear PhreshSoldier,

I’m writing on behalf of The MY HERO Project.

www.myhero.com

We are a not-for-profit, project-based learning resource on the internet and I’m the curator of our digital gallery. As its curator, I am always looking for outstanding art to feature in our digital gallery.

May I have permission to feature your “Michael Jordan Typeface” on our website for Black History Month?

www.myhero.com/gallery

With your permission AND YOUR THOUGHTS about what makes Jordan heroic to you, (this makes each piece in our gallery special) I would be able to make a beautiful digital Gallery Page to share with our online community of 3M+ hits per month (mostly students from over 44,000 classrooms worldwide) – linked to your website, if you have one.

Here’s a quick look at a piece from The MY HERO Gallery that we were given permission to use by renowned street artist Shepard Fairey:

Please write me at david@myheroproject.org

Thank you for your consideration – This is a beautiful piece.

Simply out of control. I love how you've mixed up the letter sizes all around, but nowhere do you lose the resolution. And that picture of Jordan is perfect-- in the action, very spontaneous, like being written out in his achievements happens every day.

This is AWESOME. The best typo portrait ever made. I've seen the other typo works you have done and they are quite impressive too. Trust me when I tell you that your great work inspired many people (I'm one of them). I don't want to bother you, but could you check my own try in my gallery, please? I'd really appreciate it!

Keep up the good work!
