Project Love: Andina

Another gorgeous project by Kevin Cantrell. I have blogged about his work before here, and the Andina Identity project is so gorgeous! Love the rich grey stock and the copper foil block typography. They work together to make such a strong identity!

Liesbet Bussche

Love the over sized sculpture pieces by Liesbet Bussche. Huge jewelry takes over the streets in each of her pieces and they are just lovely! via The Jealous Curator.

Typeface Love: Macula

Love this typeface, Macula - The Impossible typeface, created by Fonthausen, originally designed for a design pitch. The family consists of four styles, each built with opentype features like contextual ligatures, stylistic alternates and extended kerning. Love it! Its available soon for purchase at Bold Monday soon.


Project Love: Loveland Aleworks

Wonderful project for Loveland Aleworks by Manual Creative. Loveland Aleworks is an independent microbrewery and tasting room in Loveland, Colarado, who have a range of small-batch beers inspired by European and American craft beers. A complete visual and verbal personality including honest materials including raw plywood, letterpress, reclaimed wood furniture and mixed with the strong, simple typographic treatment really makes for a gorgeous project! Love the bright taps! via Environmeant

2013 Calendar Favourites

I am currently on the look out for a calendar to grace my wall/desk for next year! I can't decide - there is too many gorgeous options! My shortlist below...

Sugar Paper Kate Desk Calender - $52.00
Lovely white overprinting and lovely typography on the kraft paper!


Nice selection of patterns and lovely bright colours!


Snug Geometric Letter Calendar - $19.90
Love the colour palette and the strong geometric letters!


Stitch the Stars Calendar - $24.00
Lovely idea with screen printed constellation from the zodiac, where you connect the dots using the embroidery thread and needle provided. Nice little touch with the glow-in-the-dark ink and thread so its glows after lights out!
