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 lovely label:
Topshelf Records recently launched a new website and it is truly a thing of beauty. The team put a lot of work into it and the results are really, really cool. The super-saturated collage images look rad, the discovery features are thoughtful and smart, and the Tours page is perfectly updated in this crap time for live music.
- A peculiar product:
The Happy Accident Tape Dispenser is an admirable attempt to build a better office product. It's clever, and pink, and good-looking; but is it really better? Yes. It is.
- A color-obsessed creative outlet:
Each project living in the Yinka Ilori Studio portfolio is making the world a more brightly-colored and boldly-patterned place to be.
- A wonderful weekend:
Next Thursday through Sunday (September 24-27, 2020) you can attend TypeWknd (a brand-new, online-only type conference for those who see, draw, make, study, and sell type). It's free and the schedule is impressive.
- A gorgeous geometry:
I really like Bianca Wilson's paintings of pastel cities and buildings.
