Sounds like a good plan:

Now, Lightmeter could be one app that would have a big say in me trying the iPhone again.
Update: Looks like the Lightmeter app is an imaginary app, and not actually available. Shame.
LightMeter App is a simple and easy to use light meter application for iPhone that will help you set your exposure right, especially if you’re using manual cameras.
If you missed a chance to experience the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park stadium during the London 2012 Olympics then you are in for a treat with the 2013 British Athletics Anniversary Games: 26th-28th July
You’ll have 3 chances to visit the Olympic Stadium to experience the awe and wonder of British Athletics in one of the finest stadiums built.
I was fortunate enough to go, thanks to Samsung, serval times to the Olympics, including the opening Ceremony, and I am totally in for getting myself more ticked to experience the majesty of this beautiful stadium.
You can pre-register for tickets which will give you priority over those that don’t, so hopefully a heck of a lot easier than it was to secure Olympic tickets. I have pre-registered and already received my priority booking form.
Take a moment tou study the British Athletics logo, above, specifically the quite intricate logo mark.

Vaccine is a really nice looking slab serif font from Paratype: the Regular weight is free to download.
Really would love this entire family as it’s such a well designed and nicely proportioned font. Can’t wait to use this in a logo design, or two. What a beauty!

Nice type styling, same shite logo parts. I mean seriously this was a great opportunity and it just ended up being the same regurgitated cliche RSS variation in a green snot spot. Still, nice type.

Interesting. Works better as a fluid logo rather than a static logo (see video at link below).
The dynamic shape derived from nature’s nautilus shell, is made up of 99 points with the red 100 marking the celebration year.
The design represents the Centenary of the company in the shape of commemorative points aligned in perfect proportion around the Aston Martin logo. It is a dynamic expression of forward motion – acknowledging the past, yet with a strong and positive path to the future
Vintage 58mm f2 lens based on a classic 1960′s Zeiss optical design.

If you’re not a fan of the Flare Factory lenses then you have to at least be a fan of the DogSchidtOptiks brand name! Just pre-ordered the matt black one for my Olympus OM-D EM-5, but in the Canon EF fit as per their recommendations:
Available for Canon EOS ‘EF mount’ – we recommend you select this option, since it is easy to adapt with cheap adaptors to M4/3 and Sony E-Mount etc. Choosing the Canon EF mount also means your Flare Factory 58 will be compatible with the Metabones ‘speed booster’.
If you would rather we can fit the lens with a fixed mount for Panasonic, Olympus, Fuji X, and Sony/Minolta Dslr’s. As well as any interchangeable ‘Compact System Camera’ like the Sony Nex, M4/3 or Nikon 1 cameras. Just let us know your camera model in the notes when purchasing. Again, we highly recommend choosing the Canon EF version since it leaves you a lot of adaptation options in the future.
Wow wow wow! Just have to get me the black and the white Dodge & Burn logo t-shirt. So amazingly cool.

Always a treat to see another designers’ sketch process, and more so when it comes to the popular Firefox character.
Quite rare I truly giggle at anything design related (GBS: Grumpy Bastard Syndrome), but this ‘You Clever Little Basterd’ print, by Natasha Vermeulen, totally made me chuckle.
Really do need this up on my studio wall as a constant reminder of how clever I am.

These somewhat minimal typographic posters, by Kapil Bhagat, are quite cute.
Jorge Oswaldo: “By removing corporate logos from their original settings, and applying them in a different context, Oswaldo re-contextualizes their original meaning within a hypermodern framework. It is at this delicate intersection, where just enough design information is revealed and concealed, that his works of art illuminate just how these colossal symbols are so powerfully imbedded in our visual database.”
These logo paintings, by Jorge Oswaldo, I’m thoroughly enjoying., by Jorge Oswaldo, I’m really enjoying looking at.
LogoDesignLove: The work of Los Angeles-based designer and artist Jorge Oswaldo is largely influenced by the logos of mega corporations. He utilizes techniques found in the design and commercial world by working with automotive car paint, vinyl and silk-screens.
Great freebie by Steven, and you can download it direct from XLN Telecom
Steven Boner: Langdon is a bold compressed sans typeface, in uppercase characters only, commissioned as a free download for it’s customers by XLN Telecom.
I’ve wanted to create my own version of this kind of typeface for a while, and this project gave me the opportunity to do just that. Strong, industrial, and clean, Langdon is great for headlines and branding. The solid version is accessed by typing with the uppercase keys, while the alternative shadowed version is accessed with the lowercase, ready to be outlined and filled with halftones, colours or patterns. The punctuation is characterised by high stress in the line widths, using extreme thicks and thins to add a modern twist to it’s no-nonsense look.
Jason James: Live better. Design better. Be a better person. All things better. These buttons capture some resolutions or key ideas I wanted to be a big part of my 2012. Whether it’s buying less or patiently biding my time on my 10,000 hours, these little phrases have helped shape a pretty great year for me.
