I know this comes from a blog frequented by many a designer, but this was too good for me to pass up. Had to pull this lovely piece aside so I could keep it handy always. Katherine’s inventory and thoughts on the popular glyph are worth reading as well. It’s been a good week for my little ampersand friends, I think!
Typographic Fairy Tale
Funny and astute little story here from Rives at this year’s TED. Via Kottke.
Attack of the Mac-O-Lanterns!
I think it’s pretty obvious how awesome this is, but I also need to point out that there’s multiple faces fading in and out like a slideshow, done through the machine’s FLOPPY DRIVE. Man, forget Web 2.0, 1980s technology is where it’s at! Make your own here.
Unicorns? Robocop? Why not!
This! This is why I love the internet. Wacky randomness at every turn. Today’s jaunt comes via Buzzfeed in this flickr set. I never even KNEW what a joyful union Robocop + Unicorn makes. AWESOME.
