Qs / Vol. 18 / June 2 - June 8

The top 15 out of a 35-quip week.

A = Authors | C = Community

A / No. 1 / Armin / Serious-looking chick with permanent marker typography all over her body. She’s wearing clothes so it’s safe for work. It’s actually pretty nice lettering.

C / No. 3 / Robert / If Threadless were badass.

C / No. 2 / Yael / You know all those wacky alphabets from shadows between buildings to raw meat? Here’s the craziest I’ve seen yet: Collage Typography .

A / No. 11 / Armin / Same concept as our Brand New (before/after) but for photos of people with their hair dry and styled (before) contrasted with their hair washed and wet (after). True, not strictly design related but oddly captivating. [Via Design You Trust]

C / No. 4 / Adam / are you a type nerd with too much free time?

C / No. 5 / Kai Salmela / Graphic design responsible for the weak dollar?

A / No. 8 / Armin / Jonathan Hoefler exposes wrongly named typefaces which might be somewhat misleading. Imagine buying the Didot Series, sight unseen!

A / No. 15 / Armin / For Summer, customize this t-shirt with your very own sweat. [Via Nice Fucking Graphics]

A / No. 3 / Armin / Got US$155,000 to spare and six months to wait? That’s the price and estimated arrival time of this pimped out book about Michelangelo. [Via brandflakesforbreakfast]

A / No. 4 / Armin / “Dr. Fredric J. Baur was so proud of having designed the container for Pringles potato crisps that he asked his family to bury him in one.” Enough said. [Via Unbeige]

C / No. 6 / jhayne / Just in case a recipe calls for twenty thousand grains of rice…

A / No. 7 / Armin / If Bill Cosby sweaters aren’t your thing, you can give this colorful TV Test Pattern sweater a try. [Via ffffound]

A / No. 17 / Joe Marianek / Read at Work. Famous literary works are dumbed-down and clad as faux-powerpoint slides, complete with cheesy transitions for clandestine cerebral indulgence in any cubicle.

A / No. 9 / Armin / What would the internet be without people willing to do something repetitive for an extended period of time? “Every day I will flex my design skills by creating one piece in 30 to 60 minutes. The presented works range from scrap and sketches to photos, typographic experiments and random creative masturbation.” [Via Fairspot]

C / No. 11 / Koz / One less reason to leave my seat, the chair that holds books.
