Hand drawn typeface + Image transfer

With the constant replacement of the old with new, new buildings are increasingly looking alike. What give us an identity and our roots are these old charming places that are built by our forefathers. The concept of this typeface is literally inspired from the quote ‘Historic places give us roots’, and hence for each letter, shiny new buildings appears above the ground, while elements of the old architecture are buried underground.

Palettes 

More than just a trendy movement on Tumblr, palettes are a great way for a photographer or graphic designer to tell a color story about their work and personal style. 

Most of my palettes are muted, faded colors. If you asked me a year ago to describe my style, it certainly wouldn’t be in those terms. I’d have called my work bright and vibrant and clear. 

Making these palettes was a great way for me to see my work in its bare bone form. This is who I am. This is what I love and now that I know it, I can move forward in new projects with a solid aesthetic that represents my work as a whole.

Something Wonderful in the post

Martina Flor, based in Berlin, is embarking on a charming side project to design and send around 100 lettered postcards to people she likes, loves, knows or wants to get in touch with around the world. Each will be entirely made, written and sent by her over a period of time.

Her dedicated blog, Letter Collections, documents the postcard design and receiver. I’ve picked a few of my favourites above. I’ll keep you posted if I’m lucky enough to receive one!

You maybe remember Martina’s work as part of last year’s Lettering vs. Calligraphy project and exhibition. You can see more of Martina’s work on her Tumblr.

Quote(s) of the week - 21/07/2014

55 Hi’s    |    http://55his.com

55 Hi’s was started in 2010 by Ross Moody as a simple means of spreading inspiring quotes and quirky ideas. It has since spiraled out of control—in the best way possible—into an online greetings collective, of sorts. A destination for graphic goodness, tasteful typography, and artful alliteration. 

At 55 Hi’s, sincere life lessons are laid delicately onto handmade french paper where they frolic joyfully, side-by-side, with cards that become shot glasses. Why? Because both of those things will make you smile, and smiling is a nice thing.
