How about going away for the weekend? Check in to a nice hotel and just relax? If I had the chance I would go to Porto and check in to the Casa do Conto. How lovely it would be to wake up tomorrow morning and have that beautiful concrete type ceiling be the first thing to see. Well, even if it isn’t I wish you a good weekend :-)

Coming across Stacie Baek was such a treat for me because I’ve been wanting to weave something for SUCH a long time. I attempted to build a loom for my exhibit but failed miserably. I think I have to give it another go. Just look at these beauties! WOW!

There’s something about the italics from François Rappo’s font Genath that is really attracting. Some of the characters are super weird, like the leaning M. But it just seems to add to this kind of quirky elegance in the display italic in particular which has great contrast between thick and thin. It looks so great on the book jackets too all sleek and minimal.

Was totally blown away when I saw this series of posters by Chinese designer More Tong. I think they are so dramatic and contrastful and I really admire the skills behind drawing these characters. They just seam so much more complicated than our silly little alphabet don’t they? Fab work!

Ohh how I just LOVE to see work like this. This is the stuff that I wish I saw much more of from my students, experimenting and getting their hands dirty. Unexpected great stuff always seam to happen when you go out on a limb. It’s made by pouring various coloured liquids over a transparent lasercut sheet of plexiglass. It looks amazing! Now don’t just sit there, go get your hands dirty! You have a whole weekend in front of you to do it! ;-)

There is something about the alphabets by Jacopo Severitano that I LOVE. I just gave an interview on current trends pinpointing a kind of modern ornament in a monoline style and his work is totally it. Check out the Hecatoncheir project too.

I do love when things are done in actual life and not just photoshopped. I guess Pierre Delort’s work is a bit of each, or he’s just that FREAKING good! ;-) I think these pieces are immaculately done. Love it!
