calligraffiti

these are cool & i want them on my wall. from an exhibition called if you could

Currently a senior designer and typographer at Grey in New York, Craig is perhaps best known under his pseudonym, ‘Words are Pictures’. As his self-dubbed moniker suggests, he’s a typography nut who is excited by the forms and shapes of letters. This intrigue allows him to transform standard words into fully-realised, artistic statements. Not content with just one partner, Craig drafted in the typographic expertise of Sean Freeman and Alison Carmichael to come up with what they have named ‘Calligraffiti’.

root beer

one of the many reasons i love creative people is because they have the best & most original gift ideas. erin jang says,

My husband loves good root beer. For his birthday I bought a vintage soda crate and filled it with 24 different kinds of root beer and made a cheat sheet of each brew’s flavor based on some root-beer fanatics’ reviews that I found online.  The husband loved the gift and I made him promise to me that he would ration out the sodas over a very. long. period. of. time.

also be sure to visit erin’s blog to see her beautiful design & illustration work (her wedding invitations are covetable)

i’ve been holding out on posting about jessica hische‘s daily drop cap project, but as she recently updated her website i thought it was fitting.

Daily Drop Cap is a project I started in September of 2009 in which I illustrate a decorative letter every day (or at least every work day). The project will continue for approximately twelve alphabets and are available for non-commercial use as drop caps on your personal blog.
