friday blinks – 8/24/12

FRIDAYBLINKS One can steal ideas, but no one can steal execution or passion. 8/24/2012 // PMS 113 // quote by Tim Ferriss

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 Type Trends
See what’s happening in the world of type this year.

FontStruct
This modular type builder allows you to construct, share, download and use actual fonts that you have made, using their palette of shapes and tools. Pretty awesome.

The Setup
Interviews of various creative people asking what they use to get their jobs done. Unique behind-the-screen look.

Look/See Sun God Special Edition Sunglasses

Portland-based designer Adam Garcia collaborates with high-end eye wear maker Look/See to create some killer sunglasses with tons of small details that make these specs highly desirable…at least to me.

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.

Mig Reyes

8 Apr

Mig Reyes is a Chicago, IL-based interactive designer, graphic designer, illustrator, instructor, writer, advice-sharer, cookie-eater, and the list goes on and on. It’s safe to say, Mig has a well-balanced, design-centered head on his shoulders. Not only does he work for one of the coolest companies out there (Threadless), he also is all about sharing. He started Humble Pied, a website featuring practicing design professionals sharing their words of wisdom to anyone who will listen, but mostly aimed toward creative types. Being able to see and hear well-known designers/thinkers contribute personal advice makes it feel like I’m sitting down for a chat with them. What a fantastic concept! I’m definitely adding this site to my “I suck at design and am a pointless person with giant ears and an ugly face” inspiration bookmark folder.

I’m extremely excited to hear Mig speak at Ad2 Roanoke’s Student Portfolio Review tomorrow. Maybe I’ll even touch his hand with my hand and we’ll move them in an up-and-down motion.
