You probably know Mr. Eggertsson for his illustrations, but you might not know that he has also designed a few funky display fonts. I am loving the name of this kinda 3D one, Skuggasveinn :-)

Who knew that insurance could be this pretty. Have a look at these letterings from old insurance maps over at one of my fave blogs BibliOdyssey, a blog that collects scanned ephemera. WOW! They don’t make it like that anymore do they?

See the rest here.

I don’t know what it is about the type work by Anthony Burrill I just really like the simplicity and strong colours…and in the words of Mr. Burrill “I like it. What is it?”

I blogged Kate Moross years ago when she did a shop window for Topshop but since then she has really done so much great work and I wanna give you an update. So pop by her site and enjoy. She’s such a cool chick!

I rarely use this space to say anything negative, it is much better to point out the good stuff than to diss the bad. But I just can’t help it this time, this is just too much! I was standing at the newsstand the other day and my eye caught the Danish magazine Q and I thought to myself “Hey that looks familiar”. And it was! I blogged it ages ago, except it’s a cover for Esquire with handlettering by James Victoire. BAAAAAAAAD copycats!!!! Shame on you!!!

Ohh I do have a weakness for these kind of lettering illustration combos. Just came across these by illustrator Peter Strain. Cool beans!

Take a look at these type illustrations by Polish Karol Gadzala. Karol is one part of the studio Bomba who also does wicked type work. I’m quite in love with the glossy and detailed stuff!

I was checking out the winners of the European Design Awards and came across this project by Elyron, an Italian studio. They did the exhibition design for The Museum of Everything, a name that makes me quite curious! The design is vibrant and playful and I bet it will put a smile on the faces of the visitors.

OK this one is quite girly, but I can’t help loving this font from Sudtipos called Brownstone. It has lovely ornament frames and everything! What’s not to like? :-)

Today is the first day after my students graduated and it’s so quiet here, ohh so quiet! So I finally have a bit of time to get back to some inspiration here at the lab.

Today I had the great pleasure of surfing right in to Grip Limited’s website and it has instantly put me in a brilliant mood. So I think you should drop by their site and enjoy all the useless info on there too. It is probably a little Feltron inspired but i think it’s great to see it in an interactive setting. It will make sense when you see it! Loving it!
