Ampersand ID Chart from Douglas Wilson

12 Apr 2010, 10:31am

I was bad. I bought this. I didn’t consult the wife first. I hope I am not in trouble but this is fantastic. I already own a few Douglas Wilson prints and just couldn’t resist this one. Apparently there are 110 prints but only 15 available in the US. Not sure why but there you go.

Based on the Snellen eye chart, this three-color, letterpressed poster is designed to keep your typographic eye keen on the details of everyone’s favorite conjunction.

Hand letterpressed on bright white French 100lb. cover-weight “Sweet Tooth” Pop-Tone paper. Limited-edition of 110 prints, signed by the artist.

Each print comes with an identification key that details the names and weights of all 61 ampersands.

UPDATE: Sold the fudge out at Doug’s site but you can still get it over at Keep Calm.

UPDATE#2: Sold the fudge out EVERYWHERE. Mine came in the mail the other day and it is beautiful.

Infographic Coins

2 Apr 2010, 11:59am

I kinda dig these infographic-based coins, especially the ones with the cutouts and the 2. The 25 and 50, not as much just because of the lack of practicality.

Not sure where I pulled this from. Found it on my desktop. Probably a t-shirt design. Anyway, who wouldn’t want a Robot striking the pose of that oh so iconic album?

Kieth Haring has been dead for 20 years and they decide to drop these shoes? Simply awful.

CD Artwork by Hubero Kororo

29 Jan 2010, 12:03pm

This comes to me from designer and internet friend @Spoony_C. It is uniquely beautiful CD packaging by Hubero Kororo for Uceroz’s newest CD Pappeltalks. When you open the CD, a packet of ink saturates the inside of the front cover to create a unique experience for everyone as well as a one-of-a-kind cover. It really is a great idea sublimely achieved. As Spoony said, it is inspiring.

Watch it in action…

SO good.

Here is a gallery of some of the results.

Kii Arens’ Radiohead Haiti Relief Poster

26 Jan 2010, 12:30pm

Radiohead had a benefit concert in LA last weekend to raise money for Haiti. They raised an amazing $572,754. There is a limited edition poster by Kii Arens of the event selling for $75 over at Al proceeds go to OXFAM. Go get one. I did. Or just donate. (Note: This is a second edition of 250. The first edition of 100 sold out at lightning speed so do not wait on this. Just do it.)

UPDATE: The second edition has the RED background; The first edition has the YELLOW background. (Thanks commenter Neil!)

Already donated? DONATE AGAIN.

(poster via OMG Posters)

(Note: I just found out today that an old surfing friend of mine from Humboldt lost his fiance in the colapsed Hotel Montana in Haiti. He is there now trying to find her. Thinking of you, Eric…)

UPDATE: Received mine in the mail yesterday. Looks like I was quick enough to get a yellow one. It is BEAUTIFUL! The stock is unbelievably thick. The red ones are still available and even though the price is a bit steep, it is worth it. It will only increase in value too. People are already selling these on Ebay.

Pig 05049

Pig 05049

This is a pretty neat project by Christien Meindertsma. She spent three years researching all the products made from a single pig. Pig 05049 to be exact. Some of those products include ammunition, medicine, photo paper, heart valves, brakes, chewing gum, porcelain, cosmetics, cigarettes, conditioner and even bio diesel. The results were put into book form with pictures of all of the items from that single pig shown at 1:1 scale. Pretty freakin’ cool.

You can buy it here.

This project also won an INDEX award.
