Embracing '90s typography
August Heffner, writes . . .
My teenage years ended abruptly at the turn of the century. This means I was born the year MTV went on the air and my entire teenage years were spent in the 1990s. It's no wonder that upon leaving college as an official graphic designer, I was at odds with the decades I was reared in. I hated all of the styles I'd known. I hated the '80s. I hated Memphis. I hated April Greiman posters. I hated Neville Brody. I hated the '90s. I hated Raygun. I hated Emigre.
CAUTION: this is a slow loader and employs stalker links!

Branding for Threshold Furniture
Threshold Furniture & Design is a 8 person, high-end European furniture & accessories store, as well as an interior design studio.
Sean Lopano was tasked with rebranding a new company, who's original identity lacked clear visual language, presentation, & direction. It turned out beautifully -- the campaign even included iPad images and content

What children's drawings would look like if painted realistically
The Monster Engine is the 48-page outcome from that curiosity, and it looks wonderful. Dave DeVries, the artist, describes the process as follows:
"I project a child's drawing with an opaque projector, faithfully tracing each line. Applying a combination of logic and instinct, I then paint the image as realistically as I can."
(This is from the elezea.com blog, but the main site "monster engine" seems to be down)
