Oh hell no. Love snakes, super cool creatures. But see how these have diamond shaped heads? That means they’re not nice snakes. Pretty amazing collection of snake photos over this way.

Great font called Crescendo by Canadatype, featured in this post over on Quipsologies
More snake photos & fun after the jump!

Dana Tanamachi chalking it up

Great work by Dana Tanamachi at theAce Hotel, chalking it up. She does some amazing work & it’s pretty cool to see her rock it on time-lapse camera… but what if it wasn’t time-lapse & she worked like a really irate ant? Ace in NYC has her work, ACE in Seattle has a few KAWS paintings. Cool Place. Check out some more of her work.

Thanks to http://grainedit.com/Grain Edit for the show. Also, they’ve teamed up with House Industries on a giveaway! Check it!

Pretty cool deal here. The Lost Type Co-op is based on the “pay what you can” model for some pretty amazing typefaces. All the donations go to the font designer. Check it out & throw the designers a few bucks, making a font isn’t a short or easy task.

The Business

Now that our cards have been on featured on For Print Only, I figure it’s time to get around to putting them here. A few months back, after realizing I had 14 business cards left with a tradeshow in a couple weeks. I worked with Tim at Quality Letterpress to create some pretty cool cards.

Check after the jump for more photos & a bit of a writeup on the cards

We Recommend: Helvetica

May 9, 2011  |  Typography  |  2 Comments

Newly featured in our We Recommend section is Helvetica. A Documentary Film by Gary Hustwit. Great movie for anyone interested in design and even pop culture. It’s crazy how far the typeface’s grasp is, yet it stays at the forefront of design. Check out our mini-review in our We Recommend section.

Doyald Young collabenefit poster

April 25, 2011  |  Check this out, Posters, Typography  |  No Comments

Saying Doyald Young was a master typographer is putting it lightly. He was on a whole different level. The poster above started as a gift for a he & Josh Higgins’ mutual friend. Unfortunately, Doyald passed away before the project was completed. In stepped Jessica Hische to finish the project for a Doyald Young type scholarship fund. Great work for a great cause with added in gigantic letterpress for additional amazingness.

Thanks to Grain Edit for the heads up!

This is just too cool not to share. The good folks at House Industries took on the herculean task of getting Photo Lettering’s catalog of work online for non-house employees to use in their stuff! LOADS of great work over there, so many unique fonts, the place is a goldmine! Order any single setting for $7, that’s right – seven bucks. What a bargain, store in the awesome bin for future reference! Check it out Photo Lettering


And that’s not all, check this gem out! An iPhone app to geotag, collect & share cool found typography! Great idea, can’t wait to see the coolness that floats around from this one!
