I’ve always loved IdN. Beautifully-produced, eclectic subject matter and paired with a DVD of moving goodies, I treat myself to one or two issues per year. Turns out they have recently published a book commemorating 15 years of publishing. Lots to see here. Click on “View Fullscreen” in the area above to see all the [...]

The original Büro Destruct book came out while I was attending Emily Carr. It made an impression on our class, capturing some of the design trends occurring at that moment in time. Post-graduation, I’d kept up with their work only loosely. Turns out they’ve been very busy. The video above is a teaser for their [...]

Came across this super fun line up of body products at Winners of all places. Their line goes: “Whatever you look like, whatever shape you’re in, we only want you for your body.” Nice one. Lots of great product names, delivered in simple, inviting packaging using Helvetica Rounded.

Very useful not only for lawyers, but for any professional not already familiar with typography and communication [...]

File under: one-good-reason-for-being-up-hours-before-the-sun. I was up checking my email very early this morning (gotta get a head start on the girls) and noticed a message from Emigre. Wha–what’s this? IDEA magazine? Emigre retrospective? Slip case? Limited to 50 numbered copies? I grabbed my credit card and hoped I would be quick enough… I was! It’s [...]
