Quote(s) of the week - 21/07/2014

55 Hi’s    |    http://55his.com

55 Hi’s was started in 2010 by Ross Moody as a simple means of spreading inspiring quotes and quirky ideas. It has since spiraled out of control—in the best way possible—into an online greetings collective, of sorts. A destination for graphic goodness, tasteful typography, and artful alliteration. 

At 55 Hi’s, sincere life lessons are laid delicately onto handmade french paper where they frolic joyfully, side-by-side, with cards that become shot glasses. Why? Because both of those things will make you smile, and smiling is a nice thing.

Posters at Reading

Following on from the Type Design course (TDi) course I attended at Reading University last year, I’ve returned to learn more about type design and the industry. If you like to know more about the intensive summer course take a look at my daily diary from last year.

Meanwhile here are some of the cool posters I’ve spotted around the faculty. Top by Jamie Wieck, bottom right, specimen of MATD 2013 graduates.

'The Filth and the Brewery' is the latest in our Beer Mat collection of prints, 12 of the greatest British early Punk bands immortalised as beer mats from the 60’s and 70’s!
Following on from our 'Manchester Best' and 'Pride of London' prints we now have a version celebrating the early years of Punk in Britain including ‘Golden Brown Ale’ from The Stranglers and ‘New Rose Stout’ from The Damned (a truly dark gothic beer). We know that PiL came a bit later but couldn’t resist PiL PiLSNER.

36 days of type

I noticed this open project over on Instagram recently, organised by Alejandro López Becerro. There’s a huge variety of characters to look through including just these 3D designs by Alejandro himself. 

While the main letters were going up in April/May the project still seems quite active. Search on #36daysOfType and #36days_<glyph name>.
