Just an afternoon dig up from our cavernous image archives.

Just added a great new book to our site; Wonder Years / Werkplaats Typografie. 256 pages featuring the 10 year story of the Werkplaats Typografie. “narrated by a group of current participants, intersected by annotations, voice over and parallel readings..”
I love seeing what people’s houses look like and how people live. It shows their personality in many different ways. The Selby is a collection of peoples interiors. Worth a visit. If I had time I could spend an hour on this site… easy!
Antenna (ARF) was around before the Age of FFFFOUNDs, consistently posting interesting objects, articles, quotes, and other visual stimuli in an uncanny, detailed manner. Needless to say, it’s good to see they’re back up and running again.
I have said it before and will say it again, Google cannot ‘visually’ design a damn thing. Android is ugly as all hell. The Gmail skins make me want to vomit. The Google front page is still circa 1996, hell even the browser favicon symbol is dog butt ugly. Don’t even get me started on that damn logo. I am not stating anything here that any Graphic Designer doesn’t already know, so I will save the rant.
But today, a friend sent me a nice article today that gives good insight into how the code trolls run the design show at Google (which I very well suspected). Douglas Bowman (a former Wired designer) writes all about his struggle as Google’s former Visual Design Leader.
It will never cease to amaze me how Google, will all this dreamland-dot-com style money still cannot get together design wise. They might be onto something here, but I am not buying it…
Matt Desmond is well known for making fonts, but most people don’t know that Matt loves cars. The last year of his life he spent filming cars and was working on two videos. His first video is now finished and I have seen some clips and he did a great job. Hopefully Matt will be focusing on fonts this year! ;)
Let us all start the week right, Kuddly Kittens!
