Things I Saw Today

There is no fold. Viva la scroll!

I hate camera straps. But LumaLoop looks like it could be the savior of my camera-carrying woes.

The ABCs of Branding is a sweet poster that’s “…foil stamped and embossed to create an alphabet composed of letters from many of the more famous (and some infamous) logos of all time”.

I also saw photos of an amazing art installation made entirely of large quantities of salt.

The incomporable Jason Santa Maria has officially launched his own studio, Mighty. Congrats!

Parliment Design has one of the most beautiful studio interiors I’ve seen. With lots of detailed photos about the process of creating it. (via)

Art in my coffee gets a fresh new design by Meagan Fisher (co-curated by Meagan and Jina Bolton). Foamy awesomeness, indeed.

idsgn’s holiday gift guide suggests some pretty neat things, including our own Ampersandwich tee.

Things I Saw Today

My favorite iPhone game (and my son’s) is new and improved and now free. Grab Ramp Champ if you haven’t already.

The Raphaël JavaScript library does some interesting vector drawing stuff. The chart demos are particularly cool.

A newly-produced Muppets version of Bohemian Rhapsody? Yes, it’s real (and quite awesome). (via)

There are many reasons to love Pictory, a new photo magazine from Laura Brunow Miner and Jeff Croft. Editorally-driven submissions from photographers and storytellers around the world, beautifully executed.

I also stumbled upon Instant Chewbacca, which will likely come in handy at some point. (via)

A nice tutorial on creating your own textured backgrounds from two stock images by Ali Felski (who’s site is beautifully textured in its own right).

Ligature, Loop & Stem, “creators and curators of fine typography-related products”, has launched. Ingenious site layout and presentation, and some wonderful ampersand-related products are already for sale.

Microsoft announced an early look at IE9 for developers. Notable stuff includes support for the border-radius property. No vendor-specific extension. Good reason to include actual CSS3 properties along with vendor-specific ones today. Also mentioned is support for more CSS3 selectors. I’ll be more excited if there’s word on text-shadow, box-shadow, RGBA and transforms.

The FontFont library is now availble on Typekit. This is quite huge news. It also looks like the available fonts have been optimized for web use. Bar: raised.

Things I Saw Today

Typekit, “… a subscription-based service for linking to high-quality Open Type fonts”, is now live and available to all.

A superb desktop wallpaper by Alex Cornell. Loving the subtle text and texture of this one. Looks nice on the iPhone as well. (via ISO50)

Birdhouse for Your Soul is a touching post by Greg Knauss on why he loves the internet. Absolutely worth a read. (via)

Craig Robinson of Flip Flop Flyin’ has a new iPhone app out that boasts, “… 1,000 Minipops on your iPhone/iPod touch which you can look at whenever and wherever you want.” Minipops are blocky, pixel art renderings of famous people.

Authentic Jobs is having a No Retweet Necessary Contest with some pretty excellent prizes, some of which were hand-selected by partner sites (we chose a Nintendo DS Lite).

I also saw donut seeds for the first time. (via)

Things I Saw Today

Mule Design’s newest t-shirt, the El Vetica, which boasts “… celebrating the career of Mexico’s only typographer/luchador”. Purchased.

Mr. Eaves, a new sans-serif companion to Mrs. Eaves from type designer Zuzana Licko. The “Q” is especially excellent.

Chromeography, a photoblog entirely devoted to “… praise of the chrome logos and lettering affixed to vintage automobiles and electric appliances”. From Typographica.

I also saw this photo of Jenne Farm in Vermont, which pretty much sums up how beautiful Fall is in New England.
