Qs / Vol. 17 / May 12 - May 18

The top 15 out of a 23-quip week.

A = Authors | C = Community

A / No. 38 / Armin / In regards to Quip No. 17 on the community side (why won’t food critics acknowledge design?), Steve Heller would appreciate that in New York magazine’s review of New French restaurant, Maira Kalman’s work (a mural and her handwriting on the menu) are properly acknowledged.

A / No. 30 / Armin / Windows Vista + Volkswagen logo = Remixed logos! [Via Dark Roasted Blend]

A / No. 31 / Armin / Oh my, I feel a little weak in the knees after seeing the new Penguin collection of Ian Fleming’s James Bond series. Make sure you click on the image of the spines towards the bottom of the page; sexy. [Via HOW]

C / No. 32 / David McCanless / A wonderful organization of organization.

A / No. 39 / Armin Vit / Some classic cartoon characters drawn as senior citizens. [Via BoingBoing]

A / No. 28 / Armin / In case you missed this: Brand Tags, a site that gathers quick impressions about what a brand means. Sounds better than a focus group to me.

A / No. 33 / Armin / Pretentious or inspired? Powerhouse advertising agency Fallon is calling all creatives who work or have worked there to fork over their awards to be melted into a new sign. You decide. [Via Creativity]

C / No. 37 / Simon Robertson / A geek site for the girls.

C / No. 30 / Laura E / A beautiful slideshow to preview a new font by Veer.

A / No. 36 / Armin / Packaging for a new Vitamin-powered beverage called Activate provides the impression of dropping that flaky fish food into a water tank. Yum. Clever though. [Via BuzzFeed]

C / No. 36 / Koz / Important words of advice for all our new graduates…

A / No. 29 / Armin / Pretty funny. Letters to Loveliza: Daily Design Questions Answered Firmly. [Via I Love Typography]

A / No. 34 / Armin / Understand the real value of money.” A nice print ad series looking at the Yen, Euro and Dollar bills and what they are built of.

A / No. 40 / Armin / “The 5 Rules of Book Cover Design,” a short video feature of John Gall, designer and creative director for Vintage & Anchor Books. [Thanks to Felix for the link]
