Hello! Fwd: is a linkletter of five weekly designthings I'll email you every Wednesday. It's projects, articles, resources, and other weird/nice/cool things to keep you inspired. Interested? It's super easy to sign up:
The current five ▾
- A nice newness:
The incredible, incomparable It's Nice That has been given a lovely refresh and redesign. The wonky headline type, the lightest-touch colorblocks, and a better search function for their 25,000+ articles are all excellent enhancements to an already excellent site.
- A real resource:
The Fuzzco crew recently launched the Pretend Foundry and the fonts for sale all focus on experimentation, learning, and growth.
- A precious process:
Enjoy this short and sweet Twitter thread where New York Times' print planning editor Josh Crutchmer walks us through the process of designing the front page layout.
- A sunny series:
Amsterdam-based B.D. Graft has been creating an on-going set of images called Add Yellow that I'm particularly grateful for in the middle of this Minnesota winter.
- A solid site:
Here and Now is "an atlas of Moscow creative studios" and a really neat website to scroll through. The gradient-y dot grid is especially interesting.
