typeface infographic by Julian Hansen

Julian Hansen is a graphic designer from Copenhagen.  This infographic he’s created is a great tool for choosing fonts for projects or even just as a visual aid in explaining why some fonts work and some don’t, given the situation—in the case of Comic Sans, we can say almost never ever ever.You can purchase this as a (really reasonably priced) poster for your workspace at Scribble On Everything.

Here’s some more of Julian’s classic style from his portfolio:

Absolutely stunning images from Russian photographer, Elena Shumilova.  There is so much more of her breathtaking work in her portfolio. Her stunning images of her sons and their menagerie of pets–as ridiculously gorgeous as their human family–are simply magical and not even the slightest bit twee (not that there’s anything wrong with twee). Just can’t get enough. Hurry over and see her work at her flickr.

Run Away With Me

 

Philadelphia: National Society of The Colonial Dames of America

The primary mission of the National Society of The Colonial Dames of America to preserve local and national heritage through preservation of historic properties, conservation, and education. With deep roots to the colonial times, the NSCDAPA uses these and other means to promote respect for those who lived and worked before the major historical milestones of 1776.

All this in mind, what a gorgeous place to get married!

The staff at NSCDA is lovely, as they are at another location (Washington, DC) that we’ve had the honor to visit. As their mission is to preserve and promote respect, it’s really the perfect place for your most special of days. Located on Latimer Street, off Rittenhouse, this little gem stays hidden from view. One really feels transported after stepping through those gates. Especially since just across the way is a fantastic pub for working out those pre-wedding jitters!

The Art of Eric Tan

Eric Tanner | graphic artist

We’re pretty much in love with vintage posters no matter what. But, truth be told, much of the products, services, and entertainment they advertise are absolutely foreign to us because they are before our time. Also because sometimes they’re in another language you do not speak or understand (Oh, why are you advertising that on your walls? Big fan of oppression?).

Anyway, Eric Tanner is an artist who’s really rocking this vintage poster party in a way that most of us that adore the genre can understand. Check out Eric’s blog and portfolio!
