Here’s a bit of neck breaking photography. These guys make the craziest climbs up buildings and sights to get shots of Copenhagen from angles we haven’t seen before. Enough said, you have to go see it!

These wonderful pieces have a few years on their back but I’ve only just come across them so I figure you might not have seen them either. I just love the little statements, really makes me laugh, especially the one that says “It’s the girl who likes my work. She’s so pretty and special”.

I do just LOVE contrastful fonts so it was one of those high pitched moments when I discovered the numeral font Pompadour by Andy Mangold. Free to download as well! I am SO gonna use this. But Andy, why don’t you finish the whole font huh? Please, pretty please with sugar on top?

I’ve been a huge fan of James Victore’s work for years and years but I don’t think I have ever blogged him. So it’s about time. You’ve probably seen his Racism piece but there’s so much other great work. I just love the sarcasm and the gnarly handwriting. I can HIGHLY recommend getting his book too (Victore: or, who died and made you boss?) which makes me both laugh and think very serious thoughts every time I open it. I bow my head in homage!

A few weeks ago I went to the Finders/Keepers market in Copenhagen, so much good stuff to spend hard earned money on ;-) Among which my briliant students had a stand selling t-shirts, totebags and other goodies. I got the wicked shirt and totebag seen below (sorry, it’s Danish humour). If you want their stuff too you can buy it at Hooha (Elmegade 14) or go to their Facebook page, I think they’re happy chucking things in the mail. The money goes toward their inspiration trip to Berlin, so get spending to support poor students!

I think that Serial Cut was one of the first blog posts I did here at the lab and it’s so great to go back and see how much have happende since. So much new stuff and it’s looking great, these guys know how to sculpt beautiful glossy visual universes to perfection. Ok ok, the type on the website is annoying, but the images ROCK!

I have a kinda sick fascination with those flourescent Stabilo markers, so when I saw this project by Radford Wallis I almost died and went to heaven. I wish I had that giant Stabilo at work. The piece was done to show the division of a floorplan to prospective tenants, and what a wonderful way of showing that.

I just discovered this wonderful font yesterday, and I’m in love! Yes yes, it’s quite girly and frilly but I just love the contrast and the swashes. I want!

As you might have gathered by now I am not one to step down from a project when faced with a cumbersome craft challenge and I have definitely found my kindred spirit in UK artist Peter Root. I just have to share this project with you guys! Did you ever wonder what you could make out of staples? Nope, me neither, but Mr. Root did and the answer was; a city of skyscrapers! How cool is that!?

I have often found myself in bookshops admiring Chris Silas Neal’s work without knowing so now that I’ve finally discovered his identity it is about time that I share his work with you guys. He also did a wonderful poster for the Pencil Factory poster zine project.
