Panopticist

Personal Blog, 2005–2010

I launched Panopticist on a lark at the beginning of 2005, and within a few months it was getting more attention than anything I’d ever done. The site quickly evolved into an outlet for an ongoing series of typographically obsessive magazine mashups and magazine-cover spoofs, as well as geeky pop-culture essays about such topics as the typography of 24 and Mad Men and the scandalous origins of Martin Scorsese’s After Hours. Panopticist received regular attention from influential blogs like Boing Boing, Design Observer, Daring Fireball, Kottke.org, and Gawker (which called me a “genius”), and also earned raves from Entertainment Weekly and The New York Post. Panopticist led more or less directly to a staff job at Vanity Fair. (Pre-2012 blog posts on andrewhearst.com have all been ported from Panopticist.)
