The top 15 out of a 43-quip week.

A = Authors | C = Community

A / No. 48 / Armin / “If the graphic designer chooses Helvetica for a font, ask for Arial. If he chooses Arial, ask for Comic Sans. If he chooses Comic Sans, he’s already half-insane, so your job’s half done.” Just one of the eight ways to drive a graphic designer insane. [Via UnBeige]

A / No. 52 / Armin / Best High School Yearbook Ever.

A / No. 54 / Armin / In other bodily related news: Keira Knightley goes beyond retouching territory and gets a new pair altogether.

A / No. 44/ Armin / Extreme Makeover: Packaging Edition. [Via HOW]

A / No. 46 / Armin / Typography-driven music videos. For some major drooling, I recommend the next to last.

A / No. 51 / Armin / Finding rare design books online.

A / No. 41 / Armin / Give yourself a reason to kick a designer. If it’s hanging on their back with sticky tape, it’s official.

A / No. 43 / Armin / Now, this is how you tease a book, Fifty, a history of Diesel’s founder.

A / No. 53 / Armin / “…not to be inserted into penis.” See what kind of product requires this warning. And more.

A / No. 45 / Armin / Fire up the printer: A downloadable poster of all the illustrations in Swiss Graphic Design: The Origins and Growth of an International Style, 1920–1965. [Via Bevel and Boss]

C / No. 58 / Jeff / Are you always bored? This flash site changes with the hour.

A / No. 55 / Armin / Don Stewart’s composite drawings, or stuff made out of stuff.

A / No. 49 / Armin / If you are going to read about the Red Cross/Johnson & Johnson fiasco, you might as well read it from a source that cites the horror flick Saw.

A / No. 42 / Joe Marianek / Get out your Czech book for this beautiful monograph; Life, Happiness, Surprise, by Studio Najbrt. Everyone wins with a lotto-style scratch and reveal cover.
