friday blinks – 12/2/11

2 Dec

Here is a list of sites we’ve come across throughout the past couple weeks that we think are worth sharing. We call it friday blinks.

2012 Studio On Fire Desk Calendar
The 2012 letterpress desk calendar, the Positive Apocalypse Edition from Studio On Fire. Killer colors. Lovely printing.

Hairy Lipsum Generator
The manliest of greeked-in text, Hair Lipsum has some serious chops. Mutton Chops, that is.
Plus, any latin text containing Ned Flanders, Milkshake issues, and Ron Burgundy wins.

Type Fight
Really sweet idea. Designers Drew Roper and Ryan Paule  go head-to-head with their type creations every week and lets the internet decide the winner.

Thanksgiving Name Cards
These amazing little cards were hand-created by the very talented James T. Edmondson.

Þorsteinn Beer Brand concept
Single color ink on clear bottles. Line drawings, patterns, or shapes. So simple, so freakin’ awesome.

In other news…
I made a post about the Moveable Type Truck’s visit to Roanoke this past Saturday. It was my favorite post to write so far and I’ve been getting some really nice feedback about it, too, which is really nice to hear. Thanks again to Ad2Roanoke and Kyle Durrie (Miss Moveable Type Truck) for making this extremely awesome event happen! And thank you to all for the lovely comments.
