Qs / Vol. 26 / February 16 - February 22

The top 15 out of a 31-quip week.

A = Authors | C = Community

A / No. 57 / Armin / Card Observer, observing business card design. [Via Nice Fucking Graphics]

C / No. 48 / Plamen / The 50 Dollar Logo Experiment. I’m sure we can all guess the outcome.

A / No. 59 / Armin / Probably the prettiest toilet paper packaging you will ever see… even if it looks like someone just unpacked the Unilever logo on it.

A / No. 54 / Armin / Fifteen great man bags. Not exactly sure why I’m quipping this, but as a designer man, I always feel men get shortchanged with their carrying options. Any of these sure beat a fanny pack.

A / No. 60 / Armin / If you like random visual inspiration and have hours to kill you will love this site, “a lyrical encyclopedia of visual propositions. [Via It’s Nice That]

A / No. 55 / Armin / Nice calendar concept: Scratch off the days as they go by. [Via Sub-Studio]

A / No. 71 / Armin / The winners of the 2009 Type Directors Club typeface competition.

A / No. 56 / Armin / Adorable, illustrated Monster-Letter alphabet. [Via Monoscope]

C / No. 47 / Plamen / The importance of typography in life.

C / No. 46 / Robert / One of the very few great uses of Flash 3D capabilities.

C / No. 52 / Millie Rossman Kidd / How good is your eye? I had Ed Benguiat first year type class at SVA and he’d teach us about centering, letterspacing and he’d say: “Eyeball it, man! I can teach you a lot of stuff, but if your eye’s no good, forget it.” This little game is pretty cool to test it out. (via VSL)

C / No. 49 / Ricardo Cordoba / The body as billboard.

A / No. 66 / Armin / Tired of your boring ol’ e-mail signature? Spice it up with this ASCII Text Generator: enter a word, select a style and hilarity ensues. [Via HOW]

C / No. 53 / Myles / You GoGirl…all over the toilet seat.

C / No. 54 / Zachary Schweitzer / Key Commands Logo Project, Day One Series of Key Commands/shortcuts illustrated as thematically connected logos - ie (UPS logo, InDesign “package” key command”)
