Typeface is a movie about “..a rural Midwestern museum and print shop where international artists meet retired craftsmen and together navigate the convergence of modern design and traditional technique.” We here at HelloTypo™ have written about this movie a few of times before. Now you can be a part of the movie. They want you to participate. Send in your design! If you do, please send us an example also, so we can post it. More info about how things work here.
Calligraffiti is a combination of calligraphy and graffiti. It is also a sweet site filled with nice typography and images that will get both graffiti artist and calligraphic people to wet their pants. The man with the plan is Niels Shoe Meulman. He also just released the Calligraffiti book (buy it here) . I, for one, am putting that book on my wish list for christmas (Hi mom).
Jared Benson, founder of the typographic community Typophile (who just last week celebrated it´s 10 year anniversary) tweeted that Matthew Butterick, former Font Bureau type designer (Herald Gothic, Hermes FB, etc) launches Typography For Lawyers. Butterick now has his own law office, and as a former type designer he saw that “legal typography is often poor”. That is why he made Typography for lawyers. I love it! Hope to see more sites like that. Anybody out there who has spare time on their hands, feel free to do something with these ideas: “Typography for truck drivers” or “Typography for phd students” or perhaps “Typography for plumbers”.
Anyhow. The coolest thing with Typography for lawyers, is that it´s a bunch of good reading there for anyone that want their papers to look good, or just learn about typography. In other words, you don´t need to be a lawyer to learn from this site. So typography rookies and others, read through the site, and take notes. Bonus: If you are a twitter addict like me, follow Typography For Lawyers here, and Font Bureau here.
Today we have been at the museum and played with stencil printing.
I first saw this lovely poster on Norwegian designer Tuva Thorsø private blog. I instantly fell in love with the poster. I had to Google a bit before I found a bigger picture and the source. The poster was made by graphic designer Nicole Lavelle From San Francisco. My hat goes of to her. Nice work indeed.
Since the last time I was skiing in Vangsåsa, the old WC signs been destroyed and replaced with nice drawings.
I was in the museum of science. Excited to see the new exhibition. Sad to report they have replaced FF Din with ComicSans. Why I do not know
