A / No. 81 / Armin / Complete Logo Design Guide: More logo-related links than you can shake your logo at.

A / No. 79 / Armin / Subway systems with their own custom fonts, as opposed to that other ubiquitous typeface. [Via Typophile]

A / No. 71 / Armin / Visualizing the effects of smoking. Fashionably. [Via elektro^plankton]

A / No. 77 / Armin / They are all around us: Passive-aggressive notes from roommates, neighbors, coworkers and strangers. I love when people underline, bold and otherwise call to attention things in handwritten ways. Or in Comic Sans. [Via Boing Boing]

A / No. 90 / Armin / I was going to post about this yesterday and reconsidered its relevance. But the story just got juicier with heads rolling.

A / No. 70 / Armin / Screen Printing 101: Handy how-to video. LED lights optional. [Via Tcritic]

A / No. 80 / Armin / Caught on camera (one that happens to have a Quaketronics flash controller — yes, I have no idea what that is either): Popping balloons. [Via Fabrica]

A / No. 68 / Armin / More Strange Maps. This one deserves its own Quip: Kim Dingle, United Shapes of America (Maps Drawn by Las Vegas Teenagers), 1991.

C / No. 114 / Niki / The ads you’ll never see.

A / No. 66 / Armin / The Type Texturizer: “[An] application that renders image as type, developed for a concept of interactive tag clouds that take the shape of content.” [Via Digg]

C / No. 123 / Joe Moran / Beautiful font by Alejandro Paul of Sudtipos. BONUS: Check out the Burgues Script User Guide. Neat!

A / No. 76 / Armin / Nice animation on the subject of typography (a little 101ish, but sweet motion). [Via l’entonnoir]
