Alphaposters from Happycentro

Stunning typographic posters from HappyCentro. This series is a part of a whole alphabet.

The concept was: Take a letter of an alphabet, looking for a selection of 10 cities in the world that starts with this letter, say which languages are spoken in these places, say where are you from and which is your language. It was a research project around the concept of the TRAVELLING.

Release your inner Ninja – Ninja typographic designs

Release your inner ninja

Just started a little typographic gallery based on Ninja being designed in anyway you see fit. Called ‘Your Inner Ninja’ this is a way to show anyone who cares how you usually internally visualize the word ‘Ninja’ in a typographic style.

Simply, create typographic designs based solely on the word ‘Ninja’. That’s it. I have used Posterous as the means to feature all the designs. The site design is less than inspiring and I am working on a better theme etc, so just bear with me.…

Vintage typography in the wild – Decca TV and Radio


Following my last post on vintage building typography and signage Robins Brewery, I went out on a mission to try and find further examples of this throw back to a time forgotten. I am even more ashamed that in all my 37 years in this small town, I have not fully noticed this gem of a vintage hand painted advertisement.

I walk down this street most days, yet apparently, not noticed what was right there in front of me.…

Vintage typography in the wild – Robins Brewery

robins brewery

Always love finding original vintage signage out and about. Finding those faded Victorian signs on the side of buildings is quite a treat. It’s  such a throwback to a time when everything was carefully painted, on a huge scale, in the absence of plastic and vinyl.

Not sure how I missed this one. Was just walking down a road in the small town of Seaford, where I live. …

Easy way to find new leads, new content and type based gossip. Looks dead smart as well.
