Dana is a graphic designer who creates captivating chalk signs—she’s created pieces for magazines, book covers, hotels. Certainly worth bookmarking her portfolio, rustic pieces of art, such a shame the design is rubbed away!
You just can’t beat it. The simplest of things always seem to hit the spot. Who needs a van graphic when you can have a rickety bike with amply graphic space. Gone are the days, the days graphics were at their traditional best, the days that I never grew up in.
A great short film about space in design. ‘Sculpting natural light’ – what a perfect summary of architecture. A truly inspiring conversation.
Like a pause in a piece of theatre, space in design can speak volumes. We often hear from graphic designers about how the use of space allows content to breathe and I wondered if the same is true for architects. How do they approach the concept of space in a medium where space is the ultimate luxury? How is it used as a material in the design of a building? I spoke with architect Duncan McLeod of Studio McLeod to get his thoughts and opinions on the subject.

Just started following @FontsInUse on twitter what an excellent project and one that will be an immense resource for designers. Thank you FontsInUse!
The website covers many industries from Entertainment, Technology, Fashion to Food & Beverage revealing what fonts have been used in each design process. The website also reveals how some fonts have been manipulated (see this post)
As a designer, it is always good to see how others use certain fonts in design. IDSGN, over time, have collected a few samples of fonts in use and I have had them on my mac for some time, certainly worth sharing! So if you work for a client and you’re pretty much stuck with one font I hope this will help – see how others have used it.
Mr. Porter was created by Under Ware for the men’s luxury-goods webshop, Mr Porter. They developed a custom typeface which reflects Mr Porter’s handwriting. I wish this was available to buy! It is so so beautiful – a perfect handwriting font. The glyphs alone, I could play with all day! Excellent work guys.
