A CONVERSATION WITH SEJA VOGEL

Seja Vogel is a cool chick. Not only is she part of synth-punk trio Sekiden, she also plays with The ‘Gurge (Regurgitator) and that’s not even mentioning her solo project. But wait, there’s more: when she’s not rocking out with her synth out, she is crafting super awesome tiny felt and thread instruments, such as this plush Korg MS20, under the guise Pul(sew)idth.

We were asked to create a typographic title page illustration for Seja’s interview in the upcoming book Conversations with Creative Women which was put together by Creative Women’s Circle mastermind Tess McCabe.

Conversations with Creative Women is a collection of 14 exclusive interviews with some of Australia’s most talented female creatives, from industries as varied as millinery, textile design, blogging, architecture, retail, writing, weaving and fashion design.

The women interviewed in this book are at different stages in their careers, with varying responsibilities at home, as an employee, as a self-employed freelancer or as a business owner. They talk about their careers and creative lives with insight and generosity.

 We really liked the fact that Seja has both a cool synth-punk music style and a soft and squishy plush crafting side which all comes together with her carefully crafted felt synthesizers. We wanted to represent the two very different sides of Seja typographically, while also showing how they aren’t that disparate. The thread and the amp cable are from different worlds, but are still quite similar.

We sketched out the basic type layout the good old fashioned way: by hand (about 1,000 times) with a pencil and paper then scanned a few of our favourites in, mushed them together and refined the outline in Adobe Illustrator. From there we fleshed it out, added a few fuzzy bits on the thread and the shading on the chord.

If you like women (especially creative ones) make sure you check out Conversations with Creative Women, it’s available for pre-order right now!
