Each month I bring you my top five picks of the best design and typography posts from around the web. The articles I’ve chosen this month have a real typography flavour. Enjoy.
Brazil based typographer Jackson Alves has an amazing talent when it comes to producing both hand and digital based typography. This is a great article that showcases some of his fantastic work.
London-based graphic designer Anton Burmistrov has produced probably the most detailed sign I have ever seen. It’s great to see how this was developed from concept through to finished art. Amazing stuff!
I am utterly amazed how someone could actually produce these fabulous chalkboards by hand. There’s some seriously talented people out there! It seems the old chalkboard is making a comeback and I reckon that’s a great thing.
Chris Spooner’s blog is full of useful articles, freebies and tutorials and this one is no exception. This tutorial teaches you how to turn a sketch into vector art – a technique that has many applications including logo design. Check it out!
I’m probably a little bias in choosing this article as I’m excited about seeing Philippe speak at this week’s Australian agIdeas conference. Philippe is renowned for his poster designs and typography. He also teaches at the famous Cooper Union School of Art and is a design consultant for the Lourve – not bad!!!
