Qs / Vol. 12 / December 03 - December 09

The top 15 out of a 26-quip week.

A = Authors | C = Community

A / No. 14 / John Feldhouse / I feel like every company is becoming this (but shouldn’t).

A / No. 7 / Armin / I feel like I’m late to the party on this one, and I wonder why I hadn’t seen this one. Graphic Exchange has amassed an awesome collection of printed design work; a lot of it has a patina of trendiness, but it’s still a nice way to lose a couple of hours.

A / No. 8 / Armin / Some clever visual puns by Russell Weekes. The first one is LOL-funny. (Yes, I never use LOL, that’s how funny it is.) [Via ffffound]

C / No. 2 / Danielle / Nice use of recycled plastic and knit materials in the winter Anthropologie window displays in Rockerfeller center.

A / No. 10 / John Feldhouse / The Best of CSS — 2007 [Via Digg]

A / No. 11 / Armin / Never-ending, funny typeface linkage continues: “A photographic type experiment made using only one hand and a scanner.”

A / No. 16 / Armin / Squeeze the emotions out of the Emoticon rubber stamp. [Via BuzzFeed]

C / No. 8 / Michael / Behind the Typeface: Cooper Black

A / No. 12 / Armin / If you are against cruelty to animals, even those that are stuffed and cuddly, then the roadkill teddy bear is definitely not for you. Innards included.

A / No. 6 / Joe Marianek / Credibly visualize integrated experiences through vertical best practices. Enthusiastically generate empowered technology and holistic total linkage with the Corporate Ipsum Generator. [Thanks to Julia Dantchev]

C / No. 5 / Koz / Tim Moynihan contends that ‘irregardless’ is the baddest-ass word of all time. Via Veer.

C / No. 6 / Stephen Barros / The Amazon Kindle: The “ipod of books.” I would be sold on the packaging alone (if they didn’t sell out in 5 hours).

A / No. 13 / Armin / The nice gentlemen at Hoefler & Frere-Jones will be scouting typographic gifts, start with these alphabet mugs. That Q looks nice, wink wink, nudge nudge.

A / No. 18 / Joe Marianek / The Amazon Kindle reviewed by New York Magazine: Overall, it looks like the unloved remnant of one of those wild nights back in 1987, when an Etch-a-Sketch drank too much Bartles & Jaymes and ended up locked in a three-way with a graphing calculator and a credit-card swiper.

A / No. 15 / John Feldhouse / End world hunger & enhance your vocabulary.

My friend and I wanted to do that whole "Mocking Web 2.0 Thing", but someone beat us to the punch.

Behind the Typeface…need more of that please. Funny stuff.
