POST / Falling Far from the Typographic Tree

September 30, 2010 by ht

A new typeface that I’ve been working on here and there for the last while. Hopefully something with come to fruition sooner or later. Apologies for the vaguely related pun.

POST / The Canada Cup

September 24, 2010 by mm

Poster for a local event. Head illustrations by Douglas Nhung.

POST / Sauerbruch Hutton

September 20, 2010 by ht

Luckily this past weekend I had strep-throat. If it weren’t for the friendly bacteria inhabiting my throat, I wouldn’t have made the treck to the walk-in clinic that just so happened to have a magazine that just so happened to have an article about sustainable developments in Berlin. See, lucky me. One of the highlights of the article was a nod towards Sauerbruch Hutton, an architecture firm doing some cutting edge (sound effect here) work. It helps that they have a very nice, clean, straight-forward website too.

POST / The Bard’s Delight

Beautiful poster by Atelier Bundi.

POST / Typographic Non-Turbulence

September 18, 2010 by ht

A set of labels for an airplane instrument panel perhaps? A slightly edutcated guess, but beyond that I have no clue. Ignorance may not be bliss, but in this case it sure is beautiful.

POST / Oppenheimer’s Legacy

September 16, 2010 by mm

There is, in all likelihood, nothing as terrifying and violently humbling as staring into the face of a man-made sun. Photo courtesy of National Nuclear Security Administration / Nevada Site Office.

POST / Sol LeWitt

September 15, 2010 by ht

Much can be said about the work and ideologies of Sol Lewitt. Unfortunately however, my bantering cannot do him any justice – I’ll let a few of his words ice the cake: “Ideas cannot be owned…they belong to whomever understands them”.

POST / Drawing Templates

September 14, 2010 by ht

Lacking a steady hand with microscopic precision? Look no further than the trusty CAD-SG-3370 drawing template; great for coloring between the lines and pretending to be an electrical engineer. Or for the typographer in all of us, FontFont has a great template inspired wallpaper for FF Unit Slab – something worth drooling over in and of itself.

POST / Charlie Harper’s Web of Life

September 14, 2010 by mm

I don’t know what I can say about Charlie Harper that a thousand people haven’t already. It seems he only really gained a modern following after his death in 2007, which is a tragic shame. His work basically says to me that graphic design and illustration are one and the same.

POST / Absolute Sellout

September 13, 2010 by ht

I imagine the only thing more refreshing than a Great Scot Sundae is a poster of one. But if trans fats, liquid sugar, and bovine growth hormones aren’t your style, I’m sure tha a Plus 80 Stapler poster would be easier on all of your internal organs. Either way, these fine gems, and many other hand selected oddities, are yours to be had at Absolute Sellout.
