The Creative Type

I just LOVE this creative look at type.

For me, fonts are such an important part of the process. If they are right, they can be the star of the show, creating a feeling and a base for your design.
If they are wrong, they stand out like an exposed vertebrae. Read a bit about the design process of this image HERE.

"Grafik Tasarim is the leading graphic design magazine in Turkey providing design news, research and educational articles. Turkish art director Barış Sarhan collaborated with artist Ahmet Eken to produce a lowercase “a” with human-like muscles and vertebrae exposed. The image is a composite of items built by hand and 3D computer generated images."

Another inspiring look at type with the alphabet
created using only a chair by Amandine Alessandra.

Take a look at more creative work with letters HERE.

The sartorialist

I just LOVE this site, The Satorialist.

I often see people in the street
that have such an amazing sense of style
or have paired something together that is
so strange but so great at the same time.

You just want to stare at them
and take it in but it just feels so odd
to just gawk at them.

This site posts images of these such people
on the street for us all to look at
as long as we want...
