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 perfect poster:
Bulgarian (but Finland-based) illustrator Teo Georgiev illustrated a series of really wonderful posters focused on LGBTQ rights. They look great, the messages rule, and they're free to download!
- An inspiring Instagram:
Zipeng Zhu is an art director, illustrator, designer, and animator who has been filling his feed with fun, flashy, super-rainbow-y gifs to celebrate Pride.
- A prideful package:
Skittles (lol, fine) hired four LGBTQ+ artists to create new packaging designs in their signature styles. Thomas Wolski, Fox Fisher, Kate Moross, and Maia Boakye all created custom pieces where they could show their own ideas of what Pride looks like.
- A free font:
When Rainbow Flag creator Gilbert Baker passed away in 2017, NYC Pride and NewFest created an inspired typeface to celebrate his work. Gilbert was both an activist and an artist, and this project is so nice.
- An important interview:
Full Frontal had the delightful trans comedian Patti Harrison explore some of the origins of Pride month and the fight for gay rights. And the video counts as a design thing.
