lovely hand-lettering

I’m loving these gorgeous hand-lettered pieces by Bryn of Brooklyn-based Paperfinger.

I especially love the custom return address stamps she offers – beautiful! This is a great alternative to return address printing / rsvp envelope printing.

inspiring typography illustrations

home_sweet

Last week we posted about Seb Lester and his ‘Keep it Simple” poster. We couldn’t leave it at that. We had to post more of his gorgeous work. Above is his “Home Sweet Home” poster that not only is a beautiful type specimen but also uses Mirri paper which changes colors depending on the lighting conditions. See this video of the poster for the full effect – very cool!

Another great piece in metallic gold.

Similar style in metallic silver…

…and a beautiful inspirational piece, where in the artist’s own words, he said, “I like to think that almost anyone can achieve almost anything in life. It’s all about passion, focus, and commitment. I wanted to design a strong, dynamic, inspirational poster that referenced this popular self-help adage.”

A nice thing to remind ourselves every once in a while.

All the works can be found and bought at Seb’s website or at the Keep Calm Gallery. {images from here}

keep it simple

keep_it_simple

I just saw this poster on the ilovetypography.com shop by the great Seb Lester (more on him later) and thought it was just a great little reminder for us designers.

While we love the fun ornate typefaces and love to look for ways to use them in the proper form, we see way too many times (more often than not) them being used poorly or overly used. Sometimes it’s good to take a step back and to “keep it simple”.

type coasters

veer_coasters1

As I was helping to finish up our massive home office overhaul I was enjoying a cold Fat Tire beer and set the glass down on our desk. I realized at that moment we need new coasters to go with our newly re-arranged office. For some reason I’ve always been obsessed with coasters, and found these laser-etched bamboo type beauties at Veer. I love the bamboo texture and the array of different type forms. These, I think, would be an exellent addition to our newly de-cluttered desktop!
