This singer has a fabulous range of vocal colors and effects to choose from. His diction is easy to understand, and his phrasing is lovely throughout. He begins with such a high, gorgeous, resonant messa di voce that I was surprised to hear how low his actual full singing voice sits once he moved into it.

That’s a classically trained professional voice coach talking about Rob Halford. I’m not kidding.

Today’s obsession is all about finding professionalism and skill in unexpected places. To me, as a designer, means that we must always look to everyone everywhere to continue growing and learning. I personally find my favorite pieces of design scrawled on street signs, sometimes angry stickers posted on windows creating an entirely new context for messages, sometimes even bathroom graffiti. Happy Friday—and keep looking for what you never knew.
