I do admire when someone gets an idea which requires working in a difficult media and they just go for it without compromise anyway. That can definitely be said about Gordon Young’s project Typographic Trees in Crawley Library. A series of stripped tree trunks with carved typography on them. Hats off to the nifty handywork! Gordon you rock!

If you’re looking for inspiration on how to present your portfolio then pop by Norwegian do Grandpeople. They have recently redone their website and it sure it looking mighty fine! I love how it varies from project to project and how each project kinda has it’s own room. Grand indeed!

I came across the lovely work of Kate Sutton the other day. I figure if you can make 16 birdhouse and a recipe for pancakes look really great then you have something going for you. I love how Kate draws totally everyday stuff and uses repetition to make it really interesting.

I came acrossthe typographic work by Brett Macfadden recently and I love seeing what he does. I think his best work is definitely his mega type on front windows and it’s lovely to se shots of the process on his website too. Really cool gridbased experiments!

If you went to OFFF this year (digital design conference) you might have encountered Julien Vallée there, otherwise I think you should definitely check out his interactive video project Danse Dance. Check out the website for the project and view the video below. LOVE the build-up and the ending!
