About

This site is a space for ideas, sketches, and studies. It's mostly observations and impressions of the everyday that attempt to spotlight the something in nothing. Added content — things both newer and older — will come and go, while everything that’s been shown to date will live in the archive.


Adam Lucas is a graphic designer and educator based in New York. He is currently a Senior Designer at SYPartners.

Previously, Adam worked with Andrew LeClair as LeClair Lucas, a graphic design studio that worked with artists, architects, and cultural institutions to produce identities, publications, and collateral for print and screen. Before that, he was an art director at Wieden+Kennedy.

Asterism (⁂)

In typography, an asterism, or “group of stars,” is the typographic symbol consisting of three asterisks placed in a triangle. Now rarely used or near-obsolete its purpose is to indicate minor breaks in text, call attention to a passage, or to separate sub-chapters in a book (as in this edition of Ulysses). It can also be used to mean “untitled” or author or title withheld. In meteorology, an asterism in a station model indicates moderate snowfall.
