  • San Francisco-based designer and illustrator Brent Couchman has a portfolio packed with beautiful work, including a hearty collection of designs done for Fossil. Here I'd like to share some of his typography work, both experimental studies and samples done for Friends of Type. What I love most about his type pieces is the variety in style and the care in their execution.

He wanted to stir up some excitement in players about typography design by giving them the ability to choose their sets font.

  • Not only does the Dollar Shave Club promo video make us laugh, but their web site is pretty spiffy too. It reflects their business model quite well, showing a back-to-basics attitude through playful graphics, simple messages, and old-timey and weathered details. I'll let the video elaborate on their business pitch...

  • Safwat Saleem is a graphic designer in Phoenix who has produced a print series of some of the most awesome things life has to offer.

  • I love seeing the work that agencies and studios create for client gifts. They highlight the personality and care that the designers put into their work. It gives them a chance to have a little fun and flex their design muscles in a style they appreciate : ) This gift package from Vessel, a brand and packaging design studio in Chicago, is no exception and is sure to spring some holiday cheer and spirit (harhar) to their lucky clients.

  • It's almost that time of year again. Though we can change habits and set goals at any time, we often use the fresh start of a new year as the jumping point to reach for some yet-unattained life improvements.

    Why not encourage yourself daily with a well-designed reminder? The To Resolve Project, asks designers to turn their resolutions in awesome iPhone backgrounds. Check back at the site for more updates.
