type tuesday: seb lester

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

I’ve been a long time fan of Seb Lester‘s gorgeous lettering. Here are a few of my favorites from him. I especially love the Van Gogh stars print; how genius is he to make the lettering out of stars! And of course I adore the Home Sweet Home print (since I have one and it’s hanging in my bedroom.) View all of his work here.

type tuesday: Linus Dean rugs

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

I’m drooling over these graphic rugs featuring vintage typography from Linus Dean. “Working with craftspeople in Tibet and Nepal, Linus has moved his innovative designs to plush three-dimensional form. The high-quality silk and wool rugs are designed in Sydney and handmade in Nepal, yielding an ideal blend of contemporary design and traditional craftsmanship.” I can’t decide between the Barcelona or Paris one.

An exploration of the potential and existing relationship between architecture and typography by Joseph Egan at the Chelsea College of Art & Design in London.

“Our work encourages the viewer to walk into and around typography, an immersive experience considering that their usual relationship with type would normally be realised on a two dimensional surface be it printed or computerised. Being able to appreciate it physically painted onto walls of buildings which the viewers are used to interacting with every day draws attention to the beauty of typography and at same time highlighting the architectural forms that it adorns.”
