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…

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.

Hero, a drawing made from 3.2 million dots
WOAH! I wonder how he kept a count of the number of dots?

Loads.in
A cool, super sleek site that will tell you the load time of each one of your pages on your website.

Nerd Boyfriend
It’s like Svpply for people who want to look like other people. Perfect for that obscure Halloween costume you’ve been searching for. Example: John Candy as Del Griffith (Planes, Trains and Automobiles)

Illustrated Etymology
Word nerds and design/illustration nerds unite! I shared this with our resident Managing Editor and she blew a gasket.

Fauxgo
A collection of symbols or other small designs created to represent a fictional company or organization that exists only on film, curated by Tymn Armstrong. Awesome idea and follow-through.

In other news…
A great friend and mentor is leaving her current job for an amazing opportunity in Kentucky. I just wanted to do a public “thank you” here to her for all of her hard work and help she’s given me and our entire department. Katie Gehrt, you will be missed. Continue kicking ass.
