friday blinks – 4/20/12

20 Apr

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. Looks like I almost made an all-video post without trying. Huh…

Portland Creative Mornings with Kate Bingaman Burt

Create. Share. Repeat. Draw every day. As you can see from the video, Kate is extremely entertaining and super energetic! I’m super excited to see her speak live at WMCfest 2012!

Good Books “Metamorphosis”

An insanely-visual trip to a rather normal book website, Good Books. Also, the Behind-the-Scenes look from concept to completion. Concept by String Theory and directed by Buck.

Smokeable book for Snoop

Leave it to Snoop (with help from creative agency Pereira & O’Dell) to think up this doozy. A book made of rolling paper pages, a hemp tweed cover, and a matchstick striker spine. I don’t think this one will last very long in the public library system. Posted this on 4/20 without trying. Self high five.

Erik Spiekermann puts the face back in typeface

This is always teamwork. Work in teams and change the place you live in. Get in there and break things open. Graphic design CAN changes lives. I hope I’m in the right place at the right time and work with some fantastic people as Mr. Spiekermann has.

friday blinks – 4/6/12

6 Apr

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.

The Boneyard Project
Art exhibit mastermind Eric Firestone came up with this fantastic idea. Invite street artist to paint the decaying US Air Force planes in the Arizona desert. Some really incredibly-detailed themed planes out there.

Portland Creative Mornings with Aaron Draplin
Dickhead mountain. Asshole Peak. Purple: don’t do it. Shitwhack. Draplin is awesome. A true inspiration that I want to see speak in person. Bad.

Newsweek: Mad Men edition
Smart idea. Taking today’s ads and adding a 60s flair to them. I think most of the ads were successful now and could have been in the early 60s asl well.

Go Media shares what they’ve been up to
I find this incredibly awesome. Showing the behind-the-scenes of everyday work for a rather small creative agency like Go Media is really nice, highlighting what everyone does over a month’s time, down to accounting and lunches. I also like that they do things as a group outside of work. Granted, this was celebrating time at their agency, but still. It’s great that relationships can extend past the time clock.

Make rubber stamp envelope liners
This is for you crafty folks out there who like to make the inside of your envelopes look nice. I hope that the people receiving the cards don’t open them like a bunch of savages. Now, it’s time to make a pattern stamp!

I’ve been pretty busy the past few weeks, got a little behind, so I have included 10 links instead of the normal 5. 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.

Leave it to the Belgians. Waffles, chocolate, beer, and now a standardized color matched hotel.

Massive business card collection to get your brain pumping with inspiration juice.

The Pitch: The Game of Graphic Design
Come up with great pitches. Win lots of awards. Jealous ensues. Live out the life of a Madison Ave. designer without the second-hand smoke and liver damage.

SFMOMA poster series by Jason Munn
Amazing as usual, Jason Munn (aka The Small Stakes) creates a series of four posters for the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art “Artist Series.”

Super awesome. Love that Tuesday showed us a peek of what she was listening to while she worked.

In other news…
The Moveable Type Truck is coming to town today and I’m super excited about it. The Roanoke Ad2 group asked if Kyle Durrie, a letterpress printer from Portland, Oregon and the proprietor of  Power and Light Press would stop by on her way across the U.S. of A. She complied, we cheered, and can’t wait to see this wonderful woman and her amazing letterpress on wheels. Be on the lookout for an upcoming post about Kyle and her bitchin’ truck.
