The top 15 out of a 32-quip week.

A = Authors | C = Community

A / No. 39 / Armin / Clever double entendre visual combining the Obama logo and a “No More Bush” tagline. Might make you squirm a little. [Via Design You Trust]

A / No. 43 / Armin / An illustrated view of the year 2000 according to France in 1910. [Via Dark Roasted Blend]

A / No. 49 / Armin / Pentagram partner Harry Pearce’s Typographic Conundrums. Figure out all 108 of them.

A / No. 47 / Armin / Veer introduces the FPO T-shirt, making a great idea just waiting to happen, happen.

A / No. 42 / Armin / The “cousin” flowchart. Neither funny nor clever nor visually cool, just something to quickly grasp how far you are from your third cousin twice removed. [Via Dark Roasted Blend]

A / No. 45 / Armin / Quirky new blog, To Do: post-it notes left to their fate in public places. [Via NotCot]

A / No. 46 / Armin / Wieden+Kennedy land the Levi’s account, celebrate with blue-colored champagne and ogle at the oldest known pair of jeans dating back to 1879 and valued at $130,000.

C / No. 55 / Catalog Printing / Check out 36 Awesome Corporate Identity Package Designs.

A / No. 41 / Armin / I didn’t know razor blade boxes were so vitagely cool: one, two and three galleries. [Thanks to David Weinberger for the links]

A / No. 51 / Armin / Kenneth Cole bought some billboard space on the west side of New York to thank the pilots and crew of US Airways flight 1549.

A / No. 50 / Armin / A lapel pin with tiny plastic bags that wrap around a fashionable steel ring that acts as a mini garbage can. Perfect for navel fuzz. Um, as one example, just saying.

C / No. 61 / Josh B / Obama’s name and likeness are being used to sell more than just crappy t-shirts.

C / No. 59 / post-it notes blog / Here’s a quick link to PASTE Magazine’s new site, Obamicon.me, where you can create your own image inspired by Shepard Fairey’s iconic poster….very cool!

A / No. 48 / Armin / A Flickr set showing off a rare copy of a Neue Haas Grotesk — aka Helvetica before it was called as such — type specimen. [Via AisleOne]

A / No. 52 / Armin / The true global currency: The Pound-Yuan-Euro-Dolar bill, spliced together. [Via Evasee]
