(sorry Shmels) I’m not really sure what it is about this wedding, but it reminds me of my sister. I think it’s what I imagined she might want. There are lots of things I see that make me think of what I thought she would want. (Right now what the wedding will be like is … Continue reading

POSTER FRIDAY// friends of type

All other font dorks might be pleased to know Friends of Type has some new posters available. They’re probably not going to make my collection—my walls are looking a little full lately— but, perhaps they’ll find a place with one of you.

I saw this on Love Made Visible and fell head over heals. It’s not just that I love typography (these and other images were on view at the Type Directors Club in NYC), it’s the fact that Cardon Webb is making neighborhoods prettier. Just take a look at his mission statement: “Cardon Copy, takes the … Continue reading
