The good people over at B-Reel have done it again. They’ve created an exquisitely beautiful site, introducing the world to Google Glass. Check it out. If you want the chance to be a Google Glass beta texter, use hashtag #ifihadglass and tweet what you’d do with it.

Hand Drawn Type With a Twist

February 12, 2013 — 3 Comments

I guess this is a theme today – daily illustration projects.

Daily Dishonesty is a blog by New York designer Lauren Hom. She puts her own spin on hand drawn type by illustrating little white lies. Enjoy.

Windows of New York

February 12, 2013 — 2 Comments

Windows of New York is a project by graphic designer José Guizar. Such a simple idea and so beautifully executed. Check out José’s other work as well. I’m especially a fan of his Lucha Libre beer.

Public Signage

December 12, 2012 — 4 Comments

This must have been some copywriter’s dream job – by the guys over at Partners+Napier.

While I’m not saying that I’d ever steal public signage, I’d like to have one of these in my home.

Leandro Senna is an art director and graphic designer who happens to be very good at hand lettering. Inspired by Bob Dylan´s Subterranean Homesick Blues video, these are some of the hand lettered song lyrics he created. Check out the video to see the whole sequence. Pretty cool.

Bike Like a New Yorker

September 6, 2012 — 1 Comment

This is such a fun campaign for a good cause. In preparation for the launch of Citi Bike NYC’s new bike share system, Mother NY and bikenyc.org launched this campaign, calling attention to cyclists in New York, and prompting them to use the new bikenyc.org website as a hub for all things bike related. I love the copywriting, but most of all I’m a fan of the typography.

Hello everyone, I’ve been traveling abroad for the past month, and sadly too busy to post. My apologies. I’m back and thought it fitting to start off with a post about an airline. Enjoy.

Anna Kövecses, in colaboration with Boulder, Colorado based Victors and Spoils put together this theoretical redesign for struggling American Airlines. It’s main focus is to convey an aura of safety. An approach that seems so intuitive, yet I’ve never seen it done before. Read more about the project, and the controversial agency that commissioned the work on fastcodesigns.com.
