Meet A Master Of The Dying Art Of Hand-Drawn Type

Saturday, September 8th, 2012

This is beautiful hand drawn type! This is something that is lacking in the digital type world though hopefully we get this humbleness and humaness in the art and craft of type back into it soon.

“Tracing the rounded lines of cursive on worksheets was a fundamental part of exercise in grade school–one that may soon become obsolete, as pen and paper are replaced by keyboards and screens. Job Wouters (a.k.a. Letman), a graphic designer based in Amsterdam, is on a one-man mission to sustain the dying medium of hand lettering, churning out meticulously executed forms that pay tribute to the versatility and beauty of good penmanship.”

Isaac’s Live Lip-Dub Proposal

Saturday, May 26th, 2012

This might be the best Marriage Proposal that I have seen in some time. It’s a mix of surprise, Broadway musical, roller coaster/amusement park ride, co-ordination, and a whole bunch of people! Anyhow, watch it and think how to top that and be original!

“Here’s to the Crazy One” Quote Poster

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

Awesome Letterpress Poster! Too bad they  are not available anymore.

“The now iconic quote debuted in a 1997 television commercial for Apple Computer. The text was said to have been partially written by then Apple CEO Steve Jobs (along with Rob Siltanen and Ken Segall). He embodied the characteristics in this quote arguably better than anyone in history. Today it lives on as a mantra for artists, inventors, entrepreneurs and innovators around the world.”

Caine’s Cardboard Arcade

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

Did you ever invent with boxes and leftovers when you were younger? We’ll I certainly did and this video documenting 9 year old Cain certainly brought me back to those days, but back in those days, there was no Youtube, or internet….but if there was…something like the video above might have just happened.

After watching in  the delightful rather cheery video, go check out CainsArcade website, and help them raise money and others like Cain for future education. (they already have close to 200k!)

DO SOMETHING TODAY THAT YOUR FUTURE SELF WILL THANK YOU FOR!

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

“DO SOMETHING TODAY THAT YOUR FUTURE SELF WILL THANK YOU FOR!”
I’m not sure who said this, but it is a quote I’ve come upon and will make a poster to put up on my wall to see everyday for now on!


The Difference Between UX and UI: Subtleties Explained in Cereal

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

Very fun infographic between the difference between UI, UX, and the rest of what makes many things work.

“Ever met someone who uses UX and UI interchangeably? Ed Lea created this photographic infographic to visually define the differences between user experience and user interface design and how they relate to a product.”

Entertainment Gathering (EG) 2012: EG Everywhere

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

My favorite gathering is happening in beautiful Monterey CA next week at a magical gathering known as The EG Conference April 12-14.
If you take a peek at past and this years eclectic presenters, you’ll be as amused and curious as I am every year to attend this brain safari of wonder.
If your attending, please let me know, or pass this post around to friends that might be interested.

As a special extension to EG this year, they are offering the entire live web-stream of the event for $200, but they are also offering me a special link for friends at half price! Yup, $100 for a few days of live, provoking, entertaining, talks.

To get a hold of this special gift, go here and  learn more about EG Everywhere! You get to see all the spectacular talks live for $100 vs the $4000 ticket price!  Sign up, call your friends up, have a 2-3 day Salon at your house with food and drinks, and get inspired! Then perhaps decide if you can attend the actual conference to experience the rest of the magic!
