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…

nice and free typefaces

20 Apr

Type rules everything around me, TREAM. Get the serif…ehh, nevermind.

Some typefaces are really nice, but expensive. Then, there are ones that are free but are meh. But sometimes you have the illusive ” nice AND free” typeface. Here are some I’ve discovered lately:

Condensed Milk by Chank Co.

Broken Dreams by Chank Co.

Muncie by the Lost Type Co-op

A collection of really nice, opentype typefaces from the League of Moveable Type

25 high-quality typefaces from Smashing Magazine

Revival typeface set from Igino Marini
