So this is my first real post from New York. And what have I been doing on my first day here? Trawling supermarkets for great packaging design. Snithe comments are allowed!
Was standing in Wholefoods trying to decide on what to drink when the iced teas from Harney & Sons caught my eye. Aren’t they wonderful? They’re quite close to Fortnum and Mason but I guess that IS the “tea style”.

The next two weeks I’ll be coming to you from the Big Apple, yep, I’m in New York. I have the view of an Obey street art piece out of my window which I will photograph and share with you once the sun gets out of it’s hiding, damn jetlag! I’m here with my students to visit great designers and to be INSPIRED. Check out their blog where you can see what we’re doing. Sorry it’s in Danish.

Check out this typework by very young design Robert J. Bolesta. I love this piece. It shows us that sometimes you just have to DO something. Get off the computer and use our hands.

If you, like me, have a weakness for opening sequences you should drop by The Art of the Title Sequence. A blog dedicated to showing great title work. You can find everything from legendary Seven titles to older Saul Bass work, brilliant! Shown hereunder is 23 and Catch Me If You Can.

I know it’s thursday but I think you should check out Hello Monday, the web boys from Århus Denmark. With 5 FWAs under their belt these guys are becoming international heavyweights. I’ve mentioned them before but you should definitely go back and see their newly updated website.

Uhhh!! Look at this wonderful series of skincare products from This Works. Great type work! (although I am an easy target when it comes to neo classic fonts) I think the design was done inhouse, so well done, this works!

Meet something as unusual as a clothing graffiti artist. Sounds strange? Don’t be, it is what it sounds like. Thomas Voorn is a graffiti artist but his chosen material isn’t spraycans, but clothes.
