Fab Siggi

Siggi Eggertsson is speaking at Visuelt dagene in Oslo tomorrow. If you are in the area, be there or be *drawing a square in the air*  (like Uma in Pulp Fiction did). He also updatet his site a few weeks ago. Loads of typography and other beautifulness. Check check check it out. Below you can see a rejected magazine cover he made. (why they rejected this I don´t know. Stupid.)

Disorder Type

Reykjavik based graphic designer and illustrator Siggeir Hafsteinsson with a nice font!

Siggeir

Dissociative identity disorder is a typeface with two distinct personalities.
Following in the tradition of Tyler Durden and “Jack” (Ed Norton’s character) in Fight Club,
the typeface is at once an aggressive risk taker, and a solid, trustworthy friend.

Diary Type 2

Our friend Erlend at Mustasj sent us a link yesterday. And since the link was filled with type, I´ll share it with you. Just because you are my favorite peeps. Yup: The link was to a type project by  Vladimir Koncar called Diary Type 2 . Vladimir says: “It’s my playground when I’m fed up with commercial work.” And that boy plays a lot. Here he have played with soil:

Here are some of the other things Vladimir have played with:

20 years of FontShop

FontShop is celebrating 20 years of delivering sweet, sweet digital fonts. It started with floppy disks, packed with the Spiekermann brothers font design, in 1989. Here is a really fun statistic site (yes, it is fun!) they have put together. Not only stats, but fun facts and more historical treats.

Statoil and SDG rides Melkeveien

Melkeveien made a really bautiful typeface for SDG and their client Statoil. Yes, it´s for the same profile as the much talked about redesigned logo… (Statoil and SDG is presenting the new profile at faglig frokost 9. desember at DogA (Oslo) ) I like the typeface. Good work Melkeveien!

Make it ooze

Got a newsletter from YouWorkForThem yesterday, with loads of new font releases. Many nice fonts indeed. But one caught my eye: the font Blobz, Designed by Jeff Proctor. Why? I don´t know. Perhaps the colors. But I am a sucker for hand made organic and twirling fonts. Guess thats the old graffiti artist in me. I don´t think this one was the coolest/best font in the newsletter, but it was the one I thought was worth mentioning.

Here another pic, but without color… I like color. I like black&white also. I like type. (nice poem?)
