Some Friday/weekend reading from one of my fave emags Fete Press – these ladies are so clever creating a gorgeous magazine each edition, combining beautiful typography, photography and unique stories – read now!
How beautiful are these personalised glass jard, found on one of my favourite blogs, Oh Happy Day (how can you not be happy visiting this blog!). I have seen similar projects with transfers, but this looks a lot simpler and easier (which means I’ll most likey do it!). I think this would be perfect for my glass canisters of flour and sugar etc.
I am loving so many foodie blogs at the moment – the tantilising photography, the clever use of type and the styling – if I could jump into the photo, I would! here are a few I’ve discovered recently:
Clever use of kraft paper - here
Lasagna & Coconut ice via the Kitchy Kitchen
Strawberry icecream cake from Whitney Johnson
you can see more on my Pinterest board “Yummy goodness”
I am a lover of type – a graphic design nerd. I’m the one who sits in a cafe, not noticing the food, but wondering why they used that font! I read the paper frustrated that they have hyphenated words and justified paragraphs. Here are some typetastic things I’ve found recently, for all of you other typo fans:
a) Serif tote bag, via Littlefactory
b) Love by Dirk Bell, via Type everything
c) Screw Perfection poster, via Wordburner, via Pinterest (link now missing) – please let me know if you know the author
d) The Italic Poster, via Dockery Design
Great contrast colours and use of grpahic shapes – nothing like an eye blur for the early morning! I remember when I was studying design all those years ago at uni, one of the rules was “red and blue” type should not be seen together. Love how they’re ‘broken the rules’ here. See more work from Niessen & de Vries at Typetoken.
Loving this new typeface by Moshik Nadav, inspired by the world of Paris fashion. Doesn’t it remind you of whimsical times, when letter writing, women wearing hats and cocktail hour were the norm? View the rest of the font here.
You can download this beautiful desktop image (I already have mine!) by French designer Mathilde Aubier from Etsy. I can imagine this as a large print in our living room also. You can find her Etsy shop here and to download your free desktop image, ready Etsy’s blog here. Make sure you remember to share the love!
Love the message and typograpy here. Printing it out as we speak and blu-tacking it to my wall. It will become apart of my mantra “I am a designer, not a brain surgeon, the world won’t end if its not (insert reason)” !
