We recently published a project on Behance titled Typography in Water where we took five selected fonts and mixed them with water. The final result was astonishing and we figured why not provide these as wallpapers as well. So to serve all the frenzy around the recent Apple iPhone 4 and iPad releases, we are offering selected images from the project as wallpapers for those devices. Read more…
Really interesting work over at the portfolio of Hattie Newman. As noted in the about section, “I am an illustrator and set maker working in London. My background includes a first class degree in Illustration from UWE, Bristol and a breadth of projects for a range of clients. Combining my two and three dimensional imaginations, I enjoy making work inspired by all things charming and strange.”

We had a few minutes of down time today after lunch and did some searching for ‘Font’ on Vimeo to see what was new. This isn’t new, but boy it sure is amazing! Talk about some free time!
Some of you may recall a little font release by the name of Black Slabbath that we launched back in 2008. Well, the designer of that fantastic font release is back at it again. Stefan Kjartansson is this designer in mention and his latest font creation is anything but normal. We have to say, this is one of the most original font designs to cross our paths, if not the most ever. This upcoming release goes by the name Cumulus and Foam, and will contain 3 different styles. Look for this beauty releasing this summer, only at yours truly, YouWorkForThem.
We just got a message from Aleksander Palka & Jakub Korfanty about their latest online project called Robotaposter. They tell us “We are a fresh online poster gallery dedicated to world famous polish poster art. Our gallery intends to promote ‘the golden age’ of polish poster art dated 1955-1965, a very special time when new and revolutionary ideas penetrated this particular field of graphic design.” Indeed, a very nice collection of work.
Some of you may already know, but we have been developing and maintaining a little image blog/community called Buamai since late 2008. We recently did a little spring cleaning on the code and layout of the site, making for a much easier and quicker experience when searching and browsing for images. Also, be sure to check out the iPhone app if you enjoy the site. At only 99 cents, app purchases help us raise funds to continue working on the site and keeping it alive.
Word of warning, some images might not be safe for work (nsfw).
