Project Love: Spam Project

I love this project by Linzie Hunter. Typographic illustrations mixed with a nice idea, plus it being a postcard book makes it really goregous! via Jessica Hische's Daily Drop Cap Project. Added to my wishlist!

Help Christchurch, New Zealand

A quick link to the New Zealand Red Cross, if you would like to donate to the Christchurch Earthquake fund!

Christchurch Earthquake

Hi readers! So you all have probably heard about the huge earthquake that has hit Christchurch, New Zealand earlier today. As a kiwi, with a fair few family and friends in Christchurch (luckily all are ok) I am shocked to hear the earthquake has done a lot of damage, with 65 dead (to date), many injured, and lots of building & environmental damage. My thoughts and love is with everyone at home at the moment. Stay strong and stick together.

Sorry to note also that there won't be a post for a couple of days - I can't seem to concentrate on anything bar refreshing Stuff to see updates. Be back soon lovelies!

Project Love: Queensbury Identity

Love this identity project for Queensbury Identity by NZ design agency Alt Group. It recently won gold in the New Zealand Best Awards. I can't go past big typography and a bit of gold foil - but the execution of the inner pages in the booklet are beautifully done!

Note: Alt group don't have a website with any work on it at the moment! Its supposedly in progress! Their Flickr has some of their projects on it.

Todd McLellan Photography

I love these still life photographs of these disassembled machines! Its amazing to think of how many parts go into a machine. The simplicity of the presentation of the parts are really lovely - simply gorgeous work! From top to bottom, An Old Camera, A Flip Clock, Push Mower, Typewriter, and Wind-Up Clock. More here.

Studio Love: Astronaut Design

I'm really enjoying the typographic work of Astronaut Design. Some gorgeous form work - simple lines and some nice patterns, all laid out really beautifully on their website. Nice colour palettes also... and I really like the idea of overlaying logotype over image.

Project Love: El Palauet Living

I love this project by Iris Tarraga. The hand drawn typeface really works at the scale used, and it looks good across a range of items. Simple type and the use of the one brilliant red with the crisp white really looks stunning!
