I’m leading a service-immersion project next summer and could definitely use some help fundraising. The project will consider issues of gender equality, housing, and education, among others, and I’m so excited! Anything you can give helps and I’m happy to answer any questions!
Oddly enough, this sport for the visually impaired has become a huge part of my life. I will take every opportunity to help this team of amazing people. Take a look at this project. Donate if you have the means and even if you don’t, please spread the word!
I love these! A lot of these patterns are really tasteful and… well… subtle. Anything that makes my life easier (and I always forget about backgrounds) gets a thumbs-up from me. You should donate if you like what you see! This is all put together by Atle Mo.
These ports by Tim Holman are so cool! I was playing around with the first one for a solid ten minutes. There are so many things I don’t know how to do. Makes me want to learn another ten languages or so!
This interactive header is probably my favorite of several experiments in web typography to be found on Web Typography for the Lonely.
Zach Woomer created a website for a friend of a friend. I like what I’ve seen of his work so far, so I thought I’d share. His own website is a cool blend of quirky, hand drawn images and accents with a very clean background and simple typographic hierarchy.
The 2012 Typographic Wall Calendar by Harald Geisler. If I bought calendars, I would order this one in a heartbeat. As it is, I might order it in the next couple of weeks.
Rubber bookshelves by Luke Hart. I so need these.
Here’s another interesting example of a recent trend in using custom, hand-drawn typography in an identity system, in this case, the Chester Zoo. The work was done by Manchester, England’s Music creative agency. The project includes custom typefaces, a color palette, and the identity for a website.
