Qs / Vol. 12 / December 10 - December 16

The top 15 out of a 32-quip week.

A = Authors | C = Community

A / No. 26 / Armin / BuzzFeed tracks the craziest store window displays of the Holiday season.

C / No. 17 / Niki / OK, maybe branding shouldn’t be EVERYWHERE….

A / No. 32 / Armin / Get in on the trend before it’s too late: Glitter Graphics! [Via BoingBoing]

A / No. 34 / Armin / For your next birth announcement skip the elegant typography in pastel colors and announce it like a rock star, gigposter style, with custom drawings of your baby. Pearl Jam would be proud. [Via MacWorld]

A / No. 25 / Armin / The T tea cup and saucer.

A / No. 30 / Armin / One more weird typeface, in case you haven’t grown tired of them, this one is fingerprinted: Fingertype. [Via Type for You]

A / No. 27 / Joe Marianek / The Office Collar. [via Swissmiss]

C / No. 13 / Diane Zerr / Have you visited Ampersandland? A gallery dedicated to ampersands. Via Typophile.

A / No. 36 / Armin / We all know it and joke about it, so it’s nice that somebody made a short movie out of it: Trajan, The Movie Font.

C / No. 18 / Alfonso / iLoveTypography has yet another nifty list of type-oriented Christmas gifts to complement Hoefler & Frere-Jones’ already quite graceful list.

C / No. 15 / Alice / Cola for Babies. An interesting ad from the Soda Pop Board of America in the 1950’s.

A / No. 37 / Randy J. Hunt / “During the public vote they saw some designs that they felt strongly about and that these were not in the field of finalists who were selected by our panel of judges…” The United Nations Film Festival logo competition judges didn’t quite follow the rules. Can you blame them? Maybe competitions aren’t the place for identity design. Maybe long-term client-designer relationships are. Maybe.

C / No. 20 / Mattus / Don’t mean to turn this site into a meetingplace for dirty-minded, but if I had an ass like that, I too would advertise against wearing fur.

C / No. 10 / Tim Belonax / My business card is a ball of putty.

C / No. 19 / Joe Moran / More logo madness — from the UK — Logo Quality! Corporate logos for just £149. Note the 100% money back guarantee. Right then.
