Typo found on Instagram 23

This is our crop of the week on instagram. This great inspirational platform offers a big collection of everything. We love the catched moments by artists, designers and even people who have their eyes open on beautiful things and situations. Especially when it comes to see some creative artworks that will be never released or seen by the public, like the Punk is Dad sign or your’ve changed. If not the artist, who else is making a photo of it and keep it for the next generation? Enjoy them!

For Typography Lovers

Some weeks ago we met Andreas from No-Gallery on the Blickfang design fair in Stuttgart. As we passed his little stand we saw a lot of people there and sometimes you could spot a little word or sentence made of wood and other materials. As we came nearer, we saw the great collection of typography beauties.

The designer couple Elisabeht Rosenkranz and Andreas Burgmann found their brand No-Gallery 2012 in cologne, germany with the inspiration of the furniture fair IMM. In the beginning they used their most favourite words and within time more and more inspirations and expressions out of literature and the daily life. Often people say that these words make them happy. And that is what they try to give - hapiness. They sold over 1000 words to happy customers and sometimes a word can be as light as a wing of a butterfly. With the help of modern machine power they create beautiful artworks and colourize them as you want them to do it.

We really recommend them to you, if you are still looking for an easter egg - this could be your inspiration. Enjoy it!

Names without music

Without music David Bowie wouldn’t be David Bowie, only David Robert Jones. That’s the interesting work of the Kiss.tv campaign using typography combined with the usual names of the musicians to express their music in four fantastic artworks. Made by Lola Lowe & Partners and the help of executive director Chacho Puebla. For more informations watch the tv spots or listen to the radio campaign. Let your mind get inspired!

The Times Cover 1

The New York Times is a real idol when it comes to creative cover designs. They got their own style magazine and it’s covers are always designed by a new contemporary designer. Found 1851 by Henry J. Ramond and George Jones they wanted to give an alternative clear information paper to read while there were lot’s of riot papers going on this time.

Over 150 years ago they also developped the nameplate and the font. To clarify the big questioning about the logo - The nameplate is similar to the english towne font, but there are still more letters divers to the original. In the facts about NYT is standing this passage: “The New York Times logo [known as the Nameplate], which appears at the top of the page, is hand-drawn, copyrighted and cannot be reproduced without permission.”

So If you need more informations go to typophile and read the full article.
