The top 15 out of a 32-quip week.

A = Authors | C = Community

A / No. 23 / Armin / If you are going to fill a magazine cover with a thousand cover lines might as well make it look cool: Esquire goes with handwriting. [Via Magtastic Blogsplosion]

A / No. 31 / Armin / Dane Cook doesn’t find the Photoshop work on his latest poster funny. In other news, people don’t find Dane Cook funny.

A / No. 24 / Armin / Does the internet need another design blog? Yes, as long as it’s well written, considered, organized and has awesome posts like a breakdown of airline logos.

A / No. 26 / Armin / Wow, talk about a blast from the past… Misprinted Type, the beacon of “good” free grunge fonts from the late 1990s has a new design after many years. Good times. [Via Idea Fixa]

A / No. 22 / Armin / A look at current movie posters in Belgium and The Netherlands. Scroll down to their version of George Clooney’s Leatherheads, you would think you would be watching Casablanca.

A / No. 21 / Armin / A “mirror” made out of wood blocks. [Via Dark Roasted Blend]

C / No. 23 / Kevin / Why did I purposely shrink that t-shirt my Mom gave me with the kanji on it? Internet translators suck. Sorry Mom.

A / No. 30 / Armin / Can’t deal with chopsticks? Try the gorgeous Tukaani (Finnish for toucan) by Lincoln Kayiwa.

A / No. 25 / Armin / Here is a tough type test: “Can you guess the movie poster from just one letter?” Incredibly hard. I was only able to answer 23 out of 46, and from those I only got 17 correct. [Via SwissMiss]

A / No. 27 / Randy J. Hunt / R/GA of Superman film title fame opens a brand design division.

C / No. 25 / Doug Bartow / remember Wacky packages?

A / No. 28 / Armin / IDEO has a new web site. Comprehensive, to say the least. [Via Creativity]

A / No. 20 / Armin / The official opening titles of the Beijing 2008 Olympics, as issued by the Beijing Olympic Broadcasting.

A / No. 29 / Armin / “The Great Cover Debate is a poll to find the [UK’s] favourite magazine cover.” Um, they are all terrible. End of debate. [Via MagCulture]

C / No. 21 / Kai Salmela / Hipster: The Dead End of Civilization. The hipster represents the end of Western civilization – a culture lost in the superficiality of its past and unable to create any new meaning. Thanks to Christopher Wade Sherron
