A designer named Joe Bauldoff has posted images from a promotional publication from the 80′s. It’s an attempt to streamline and improve our much celebrated Helvetica. There are definately improvements here in the construction as well as white space. But I don’t think “good” is the main charm of Helvetica. Anyways… meet Haas Unica.

Although there is obvious inspiration, not to be confused with Siggi Eggertsson. This Siggi (Icelandic nickname for Sigurður) recently graduated from the Iceland Academy of Arts. Check him.

Our long time buddy and the master of oddities in line work, Lance Sells, has posted some new work (+ minimal site update) over at his personal site Normal Natural.
Its really quite odd (and ridiculous) what actually gets press in Architecture, seriously. I am starting to see a trend with the press reporting on these hideous concepts and actual projects going up (or floating) in Dubai. For example, this latest project was posted on Gizmodo, but originally on NPR. I mean, yeah the floating idea is pretty cool, but did everyone overlook that god awful and slightly perverted (saggy nuts) building concept? Maybe we should start also reporting Graphic Design that uses inner bevels and comic sans? I am all for progression, new ideas, but damn make it look good, yeah?
