I love this project called Social Decay by Romanian digital artist Andrei Lacatusu. Lacatusu imagines what it would look like if big social media companies had real, but decaying, storefronts in a post-social media world ! The attention in the detail is really impressive.
This is sooo funny!! Ryan Gosling is the host of SNL‘s season premiere, and stars as an obsessed graphic designer haunted by the typeface Papyrus and its use for the blockbuster film Avatar! Saturday Night Live at its best!!
Known for its eclectic font collections, House Industries has been around the design world for more than 25 years. Apart from the beautiful mid-century style fonts, they have also designed everything from books, home decor, toys, stationery, t-shirts and apparel for women and men. They are now releasing a new book titled The Process is the Inspiration on May 30.
In their words: “With topics ranging from fonts and fashion to ceramics and space technology, this beautifully-useful volume offers a personal perspective on the origin of ideas for creative people in any field. Presented in the honest, authentic, and often irreverent style that you’ve come to expect from House Industries, The Process is the Inspiration is a collection of helpful lessons, stories and case studies that demonstrate how you can transform obsessive curiosity into personally satisfying and successful work … Most importantly, this book shows that there’s no sense in waiting for inspiration because inspiration is already waiting for you.”
Love this lettering painted by British graphic designer Alex Fowkes. “Take Pride”, “Collaborate” and “Be Courageous” is the sign painting written on a wall of the office of a creative production studio.
Love the flip chart Office Buddy. It comes with ten status updates and you can also custom design your own message. Of course, I work by myself, so it would look a little weird on my desk, but you never know…
