A / No. 50 / Armin / What a Lovely Name is a web application that not only helps you generate a baby name based on tags — cute, wise, quirky — and a combination thereof but it also generates a (relatively) custom logo that you can then magically export to zazzle and get all kinds of merchandise.

A / No. 47 / Armin / Great poster by Ken Carbone to celebrate the 70th birthday of Swiss designer Fritz Gottschalk. [Links to PDF]

C / No. 36 / Wolf / A catalog of visual interestingness.

A / No. 54 / Armin / A new way of looking at Quentin Tarantion films: “Each poster explores character interaction within scenes, displayed using a circular mapping system.” [Via Nice Fucking Graphics]
