A nice little piece at NPR about the importance of type!
I saw this article and thought, “Would work would be more fun if my work space was a typeface?” French designer, Benoit Challand must have thought so when creating “Fold Yard”, a collection of typography office furniture. What do you think?
A few months ago I posted a quote I found from the great Ira Glass of “This American Life.” If you saw it, you recall it because many of you responded saying it was incredibly helpful and inspiring. If you missed it, well…you’re in luck because now, here’s an type illustrated version of it. Here it is round 2.
Obsessed with type and want to be part of a group where you can battle it out? You can join Typefight where there are endless battles of type 24 hours a day. Join or just vote, whatever you’re up to. But the competition is fierce so watch out!
Happiness is a hot topic. The Dalai Lama has written about it, Oprah capitalized on it, and Eat, Pray, Love tapped into millions of women who felt that perhaps, happiness is found in some exotic country once you’ve reached rock bottom and let your waste line go. There’s no judgement who has the right answer. In fact, to each his own especially on this topic! But as I join the vast group of happiness seekers, I will be tromping off to Stefan Sagmeister’s exhibition “Six Things: Sagemiester & Walsh” at the Jewish museum in NYC where he collaborated with Jessica Walsh to explore and present his findings of HAPPINESS. (exhibition runs through August 4, 2013)
Sorry its been way too long since my last post! Hope all of you had a nice and restful holiday and ready to tackle 2013!
I thought I’d kick off this year with a post about New York City teaming up with Pentagram to roll out one of the things that frustrates NYC drivers the most — parking signage. How many times have you stood on the curb wondering, “what the hell does that mean?!?!”
With some editing of copy, color palettes and some good old fashion typography, Pentagram has helped NYC unclutter the streets one by one.
Whoever said you shouldn’t play with your food clearly didn’t know what food had to offer. Spain based designer Aranxa Esteve and Lucía Rallo have conjured up a playful idea of creating typographic colored jello to promote their studio. Be inspired and try giving it a go this weekend!

Putting things into storage can be overwhelming, but for many of us, its much needed! House Industries has come out with House Archive Boxes–a collection of affordable and durable storage boxes that are designed so well that if you don’t get to the storage unit, you can afford to keep them laying around in your home or office space without crimping your style. Nice!
