Alex Beltechi, a digital artist from Oradea, Romania has given the Steampunk typography treatment on an Old English styled typeface. Look at the close-ups to see what amazing detail he has gone to with this rendering…
Here’s below Ahmet Baytar’s words regarding his new collection:
“I was trying to appreciate the movie “ Mulholland Drive “, apart from its being visually satisfying and its screen and sound effects pulling the watcher into a stream, I found that the two main characters of the film had affected me. The gorgeous Naomi Watts and Laura Elena Harring have become the inspiration for my 2010 winter collection in my sketchbook, that I could not put down for a second, as I watched.
For those who have never seen David Lynch’s movie, the story is about two beautiful women. The first, Rita, seeks asylum in a house after losing her memory in a car crash and the second, Betty, who is seeking stardom. The movie fooled me into believing that I understood the plot, then completely turned all of my assumptions upside down. It is a masterpiece of illusion for the viewer and has to be seen to be appreciated.
The progress of the events in the movie, fluctuating between reality and fantasy, was the same dilemma that I had whilst deciding the height of the shoes and boots. And disturbed me in the same way.
Instead of avoiding this dilemma, I decided to embrace it and to reflect this dilemma directly onto my designs, then they appeared in my sketches, unexpectedly, as the story unfolded.
During the final period of making shoes, after the design process, I needed to make some small decisions, like choosing the right heels, colour of the leather, etc. While I was making these decisions, the aesthetic behavior of Naomi Watts and Laura Elena Harring’s amazing performance remained in my mind and have steered me in the direction that I have gone.
I feel that the story of Mulholland Drive continues in my designs.”

After many months of hard work, GLYPH CUE FW09 Hoodies are here. The Website is updated, The Online Store is dialed, and Stockists will be receiving shipments next week. As with all of our lines, we have gone with a dedicated color palette, so FW09 is a celebration of Greens (SS09 was Blues, and SS10 will be ____). We kicked it up a notch and went with 4 Colors for each chest graphic, and an oversized left-wrist logo hit on each piece. The hoodies are super heavyweight to keep you warm as Autumn creeps in. And the graphics are next level, I am very pleased with how they turned out.
True to our name “Glyph Cue”, each design has a hidden narrative or cryptic message that requires you to spend a few minutes deciphering it. Really psyched! Swing through and check it out. And to be in touch so we can get on the racks at the best boutiques! *GLYPH CUE is proudly printed in Portland, Maine USA. All Design By: MWM Graphics.
