It is WRONG that I’ve never featured Swedish born fashion mag Rika before, WRONG I tell you! Cause it is one of those magazines where I just love the typography even if it’s weird and wonky. It is so elegant and fashiony (that’s a word!) and yet a different take on the slim neo classic Bodoni look alikes that would often fit the fashion mag bill. As always, I greatly appreciate design with contrasy and Rika has it all.

If you’re a Christmas present short for someone who loves typography and illustration, then you should check out the calendars from Swedish Team Hawaii. This would look good on MY wall at least :-)

I’ve only just discovered Chicago based studio Firebelly, but I already love their work. I came across two of their publications for their series of typography exhibitions called Typeforce and they were just so well designed. I love how they are somehow visibly united in a series but yet SO different from each other. AWESOME work!

Harriet from Okay Type

At the moment I’m working on a project where I’m using the font Harriet from Okay Type. I’m so in love with it! When I bought it, it was like buying a quite expensive piece of good quality clothing. You kinda hope you’ll love it, because if you don’t, it’s a lot of money. And then each time you use it, you just love it more and more. Harriet is worth every penny :-)

See all the great fonts from Okay Type.

Yesterday I did a talk about my dissertation on humour in graphic design. It was a great night. So now I just wanna pay  homage to one of the people who inspired me to do it a few years back, without even knowing him. I LOVE Mr. Zag Shahir, I feel he might be a long lost soulmate :-) Here’s a few of my fave Zags.

Wow! I’ve had a hard time shutting up about it, but it’ official now. I just got word that I won an award at the HOW International Design Competetion with my YOLO piece. I’m super proud about it, because it was the first piece I did after I quit my job. Goes to show that taking chances works. Please remind me when I have doubts.

YOLO ya’ll!! :-)

Martina Flor

I had the pleasure of meeting the wonderful Martina Flor when I spoke at the Selected D conference in Bilbao last year. I had such a wonderful time there and a lot of that was meeting Martina, who has since been a huge inspiration to me (more than she knows!) in setting off on my own adventures. This year she has launched a really lovely project called Letter Collections, where she sends out 100 handlettered postcards. It’s looking super nice so far!

Have a look though it: http://www.lettercollections.com
