- Shit People Tweet
I’ve always enjoyed drawing letters and appreciated typography in its many forms and personalities. I’m intrigued by its ability to convey meaning and emotion, creating a feeling that can be very intuitive.
Shit People Tweet began as a small project to document some of the most funny/weird/random things that I’ve read on Twitter. I thought it would be interesting to hand draw them and bring something from the internet space into “real life.” By restraining myself to only black ink on paper, I’m able to focus on exploring and pushing the typography to do most of the heavy lifting in conveying meaning, keeping the illustrations to a minimum.
Jennie Li is a designer and photographer from San Francisco currently enjoying (and freezing in) the lovely city of Chicago. After a 5-year stint as a pre-med student and hating it, she finally realized she was meant to be a creative. If she really stops to think about it, art and design have always been a passion for her, as evidenced by an unfortunately fortunate incident at a very young age involving a wall, her mother’s lipstick, and her name whit in enormous lettering. Beyond design, Jennie is an avid film photographer with a constantly growing camera collection in various formats.
