I was inspired to create “Twist” after my Trip to Trinidad in 2007. I was fortunate to have been awarded the Don Eckelberry Memorial Scholarship, named after the late great naturalist and bird painter, which sent me on a ten day all expenses paid trip to the Asa Wright Nature Center in Trinidad. While these Palm Tanagers were not remotely the most colorful birds I encountered in the lush tropical setting, they were among the most memorable. Though a ubiquitous sight, they had developed a completely fearless attitude and were frequent visitors, not only hanging from the vines immediately outside the terrace of the main building, but in the main house as well. They proved themselves to be shameless scavengers, cheekily entering the dining room to pillage unclaimed crumbs. I even saw nests indoors, including one amazingly nestled behind a refrigerator.

From a design point of view, my interest here was the beautiful play of curvilinear shapes and lines, and the boldly abstract negative shapes they create. The addition of the swirling typeface emphases this concept while underscoring the graceful movement of the Palm Tanagers.
