Book Review: The Geometry of Type There are many things I like about Stephen Coles’ recent book; the bright, clean design and the accessible structure allowing you to dip in and out; but most of all, it’s the lack of fluff or filler.

I wrote an article in Lagom, a new lifestyle magazine celebrating innovation and creativity. A short snippet appeared on the magazine’s blog yesterday. Running a busy London agency resulted in designer Jamie Clarke becoming removed from the creative process — something he set straight by selling the agency, taking classes in screenprinting, and getting his hands inky again. “Although I talked a lot about design and spent time art directing, the amount of design work I was producing mys...

It was designed by Earl Gee for Neenah paper as part of their The Beauty of Letterpress: The Art of Making an Impression series.“My other concepts involved straight type, but the idea of using tools as typographic forms was just too much fun to resist. I hope viewers enjoy discovering the tools within the typography.”Proceeds from the...

Desk Letters A world of options in this alphabet inspired desk design by French, CGI Designer, Benoit Challand. Each offers a space with its own character. “You can sit in an A-shaped desk, feeling like you’re at the prow of a ship, or in the smooth curve of a D, far more comfortable than being boxed into a traditional cubicle.”
