friday blinks – 2/24/12

24 Feb

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.

Sexy new Kama Sutra book cover
Process post by French designer Malika Favre for the new Penguin Deluxe edition of the Kama Sutra. Some incredible iterations in there.

Child’s Own Studio
Started by a mom who created a plush character based on her 4 year-old son’s drawing. Then, opened it up to everyone and made it a business. What an amazing idea. I think my 3 year-old son Benji would have some interesting characters to pal around with.

Pairing Lost Type with New York Neighborhoods
Really cool idea to use only typefaces from Lost Type Co-op along with Hipstamatic photos of some of New York’s neighborhoods.

Muxel
An ever-changing analog collage network, based on the idea of Mixel, started by designer/illustrator Keenan Cummings. Seriously thinking about doing this. Such a cool, interactive way to connect to people without technology.

Be nice, Be happy, and smile more
Designer/illustrator Timba Smits tells his sad and heartwarming story of the past 5 months of his life. Crazy…

Darren Booth

30 Mar

Darren Booth is an illustrator and typographer based in Ontario, Canada. His unique style incorporates hand lettering, illustration, collage, and painting. Seeing that his work is so unusual (in a good way), he is able to freelance full time and work with some really big-time clients like AOL, Coca-Cola, ESPN, Herman Miller, The New York Times, Sony Music, and Target. Some of his latest work, hand lettering for country legend Willie Nelson’s newest album Here We Go Again, features great subdued colors and a individuality that you don’t see every day.

I also love the fact that he shares his work space on his website. I think you can tell a lot about a person based on their work space. In Darren’s case, it appears that he just cleaned his office, took a few photos, and acts like he keeps his studio very tidy. LIES!

Great stuff, Darren. Keep it up!
