I spotted these on matandme.net and thought they where just brilliant! I can't help but imagine a tea towel full of them representing a design studio rather than a year 2 class.
designed by vincenco di maria.
buy them here http://www.npw.co.uk/product/W5745/Zoobox

The Buchhstabenmuseum (Museum of Letters, Characters and Typefaces) Germany.
A collection of discarded signs from through out the era's.
I wonder how much Helvetica lives there?
I would love to visit and find out.

I've always been a fan of stamps, a beautiful tradition that I hope never gets replaced by technology.
They improve with age and the random postage marks only add to the charm as they sit wonkily on the envelope.
What better way is there to start 2009 than a set of stamps that represent British design at its best.
Once upon a time I was small enough to sit on a chair not that much bigger than in dolls house and more alarming asked Podd to fart .... which sadly the BBC didn't allow.
I cannot believe how far graphics and technology has really come ... although I am quite fond of the early pixel look and Podd!!

One of my favorite title sequences and T.V. series at the moment.
I love the way the imagery used in an innocent 'morning routine' is playfully twisted to capture the essence of serial killer dexter. Sending a shiver down the spine.
The title sequence also has an air of Hitchcock to its style. Really imaginative filming which reflects the dark humor behind the nature of the show.
