Hand Type

Hand Type is the procrastination (or procrastiwork as Jessica Hische would say) of designer Andy Lethbridge. I can’t stop watching him write, I’m so fascinated with how coordinated every damn stroke is…OK I secretly hate him ;-)

Of course I especially love the Beautiful Rudeness video, of course I do!

Look at him write: http://hand-type.tumblr.com/

How would you like to pay 250$ for an envelope? No? Well! When it’s a custom handlettered envelope with your own name and address by Erik Marinovich it’s gonna be a big YES PLEASE! from here. How great are they?!?!?! Puts a smile on my face everytime I come across this project. Someone please send me a pretty letter :-)

Have a great weekend!

OK it’s official now and I can shout it from the rooftops: I’M SPEAKING AT TYPO BERLIN!!!!!!!!!!!!….as you can probably tell I’m slightly exhited about that ;-) I go there every year with my students and I can’t believe that THIS year I’ll be there to speak. Quite daunting, but also really REALLY awesome! Come watch if you’re there Thursday at 3 pm.

Check out the impressive list of speakers. It’s win win for me really, as there will also be lots of other speakers that I want to see. Like Kate Moross and Jessica Walsh just check out the fab work below.

HEEEELLLLOOOOOO?!?!?!?!?!!? I think I might be writing into a big silent orbit now, because it’s been so quiet here for way too long. Longest time I’ve ever neglected you guys. Could hardly remember the password to my WordPress. But I have an excuse (yes, yes excuses, excuses!) I BROKE MY ARM! I now have a big titanium thingy in my arm and a big suicide like scar on my wrist. It’s nasty! I’ve wanted a tattoo for a long time and my friends think I should make wonderfully pretty lettering around the scar saying “It’s not what you think”….hmmmm…not quite sure about that!

But I need to get back into the saddle and get blogging again so here’s Luke Lucas. Doesn’t his name sound like a superhero? I love it! He does amazingly crafted lettering which is my fave thing in the world.

Job Wouters

I’ve been a fan of Job Wouters for a long time and getting my hands on his book Letman was SUCH a treat. I HIGHLY recommend it (no, I don’t get a percentage!). The variety of the work is amazing, I really like how different styles are explored without any notable desire to be cool or hip but just to create something new and great. Success! The control of the tools used is so superior to anything I’ve seen for a long time. A bonus info: The book is set with my former student Julian Hansen’s font Zimmer.
