This is a wonderful collection of found typography. It is an intriguing thing trying to understand the perspective or lack-thereof the creators of this work. Rather, I’ll just sit back and take it in.

Type Battles #33: Futura Holiday Dingbats

Every once in a while Typophile hosts a new battle for fellow members to compete in a type nerd’s version of a street battle. The current battle is to create 5 Futura dingbats

“As with any street battle, there is no panel of judges and no prize — only the ability to call yourself the best on the block.”

Here’s my entry. I’m one of the few to try to do it for Futura Bold. Also, since the limit of the space when dealing with such heavy strokes, I decided to make them very simpler and more iconic. There haven’t been many other entries yet. Any challengers up for the task?

Monsieur Qui


I just heard about this Parisian Illustrator from cakeface.
I’m extremely impressed by the beauty, complexity and sophistication of this artist’s work. The integration of type with form and models feels extremely organic.

AIGA Upstate New York re-design

AIGA Upstate New York
AIGA Upstate New York’s got a new site design…and it seems to have a hint of MyDarndest behind it.

The quasi-new President of AIGA Upstate New York, Bill Klingensmith aka MyDarndest, has been making some impressive efforts in order to make the AIGA an outstanding resource for members in upstate. Through organizing events such as Creative Eats, where fellow creatives can hang out and chat about what’s going on and the Poster Exhibition at Abilene. He’s also been developing and writing for the blog on the AIGA Upstate site to serve as a resource for both students and professionals. So, I’ve got to give props to good ole BK for putting in some solid effort into making AIGA an even greater resource for creatives in Upstate NY.

Jay Ryan is an amazing character. I met him 2 springs ago when our AIGA RIT student group brought him in for a lecture and screenprinting demo. I have two of his posters; I love and cherish them. He is also bass of Dianogah. That’s them playing in the background. Check him out at The Bird Machine
