Official Classics Vector Pack

I found this little nugget earlier on behance.
Basically they are selling off a shed load of retro vector packs. I realise for some this will take away the fun of actually creating the vector and for others will take away the monotony of creating yet another vector. either way they are nice, varied... and detailed.
here is the link for the behance portfolio
here is the link to their website where you can download a sample vector pack. Including this retro ghetto blaster. (although i was suprised at the low quality of the text on their website when they specialise in vector art but hey!)

An interesting alternative to the usual blog here.
I stumbled across a typography podcast which you can subscribe to by two design students Aaron Heth and Matt McInerney. The podcast feature some well known guests, such as Antonio Carusone, creator of the grid system website. Posted earlier in the year.
Check out the podcasts here

I love typography... So, not surprisingly, ilovetypography is one of my favourite websites. Giving a more indepth look into the world of type, rather than just posting pictures of nice bits of work like most blogs (us included!), ilt is a fantastic resource of inspiration, history, technicalities, and lovely type loveliness. A great article on diacritics ('accents' to you and me). Anyway, Click here to learn all about it!

Behance really is amazing. There's so many brilliant designers and artist's work available to perve over... Here's a little beaut' that's been featured on their main page. Encore Sans Pro. From the portfolio of Parachute.
"a fresh contemporart alternative to your overused classic sans"
I adore the feather light version; the sturdy trustful structure of good ol Helvetica, but with the inviting curves and playfulness of Avenir. We love it.
Buy it here.

From the flickr account of Moleitau.
"for those of you who have asked, please go ahead and make posters, t-shirts etc... that was kind of the idea! BUT - pls. respect the (CC) Licence and don't sell it... ".


I take a lot of joy from the little things in life - being made beautiful. Everyday objects, used without care or attention, turned into conceptual pieces of designed elegance, begging to be looked at, touched, used, and enjoyed. Here's a nice little example from the online shop Fitszu Society.

The coolest way to light a ciggie I've seen for a while.

I don't actually know how new this site is, but it's been popping up on
digg quite a bit recently. A bit like smashing magazine, but more personal - this website offers collections of design and illustration, tutorials, free downloadables, and all the usual geeky design blog type stuff. Good work. Check it out.
An article definitely worth looking through is their collection of 3D Type.


An office made entirely of cardboard! Using "a 'no screw, no glue' technique". Nice workspace. Prefer a bit more clutter myself. Linky McLink. Nice website too.

This made me happy. "The Periodic Table of Typefaces is obviously in the style of all the thousands of over-sized Periodic Table of Elements posters hanging in schools and homes around the world. This particular table lists 100 of the most popular, influential and notorious typefaces today."

Pretty creative advertisements for the almighty Lego.

Got sent this from ... Pretty impressive, I think.


I like small pieces of art and design. Postcards, mugs, stickers. things like that. The business card is an obvious and crutial place to show off your design skills. Here's a nice collection of some.

Hey there, man I haven't posted for a while!
Have found this cool website though where you have to guess the film from a deconstructed/abstract image, some of which look amazing just in their vector forms.
Take a look here.
If you have trouble recognising this as Forest Gump then maybe don't try.
