Ace is the Place

ACE HOTEL MURAL BY TIMOTHY GOODMAN

As a designer of brand experiences, I am crazy-go-nuts about checking out interesting environments. Based on several recommendations from friends and this sensational, hand-drawn wall mural by Timothy Goodman, I’m mandating a stay at the Ace Hotel on my next trip to NYC.

Nineteen Seventy When?

POSTER AND PRODUCT DESIGN BY ALT/1977

Fueled by the concept of re-imagining modern technology for the ’70s consumer, these posters by ALT/1977 are just fun to look at. I especially love the cell phone!

Take a Letter

RANDOM SELECTIONS FROM LETTERHEADY


Matt Groening (1991)


Gene Roddenberry (1967)


Harry Houdini (1920)


Hugh Hefner (1955)


Albert Einstein (1932)


Again, this is why I LOVE the internet. I just stumbled across Letterheady, an eclectic and expansive collection of letterhead designs. It’s an amazing homage to a medium that, when done well, can completely capture the essence of personality. *Sigh* I could get lost here for hours.

Turning Trash into Treasure

HANDLETTERING BY LINZIE HUNTER

When life loads your inbox with lemons, publish them! Finding inspiration in the subject lines of junk emails, Illustrator Linzie Hunter created these lovely prints that became a book of 30 handpainted typographic postcards.

Just in Time for BBQ Season

DRUNKEN TAGS BY FAROUCHE

Love these clever drink tags by Farouche. Use them to id your party glass or tie them to your tipsy friend as a reminder of a way too fun evening.

Cheers all, have a great holiday!

Color That’s Good Enough to Eat

LUXIRARE CRAYONS

Luxirare, a weekly webzine that doles out small doses of food and fashion brilliance, presented these vibrant colored, edible crayons.

Strange? No, no. There is no need to label or question why, just drop what you’re doing right now and get lost in the visual feast.
