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.

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.”

Seems like all my recent blog finds are typography related, but i can’t help it, there’s some pretty awesome type work being done right now! This post is about The Phraseology Project, a site that lets you submit a letter, word or phrase and they’ll make it look beautiful with type.
I’m not a freak about typography like many designers but I do get excited about great packaging. This morning while on Lovely Package I found myself duped by Antrepo. At first glance I thought I was admiring some gorgeous retro inspired oil cans. But, after closer inspection I discovered that I was in fact looking at a gorgeous sales pitch for their font Public Gothic. Maybe there is something to this typography thing after all.
