I’m a big fan of unique wedding invites. Having done a handful of custom wedding designs myself, I admire and appreciate a thoughtful concept. This invite, by Rudi de Wet, totally caught my eye today. I love the handmade typography and illustrations. Super cool.
“I made a sweet pirate ship out of a refrigerator box when I was 4, Ghostbuster costume with working backpack for candy when I was 10, and my first T-shirt design that was “produced” when I was 14 for a 9th grade party, that was sweet. The T-shirt thing was a turning point.”
—Adam Turman, Minneapolis-based illustrator, designer and screenprinter
A friend of mine at work showed this video to me today and I thought I would share it with you. It’s about the concept and design of the medals for this winter’s Olympics. I love the thinking involved and the use of recycled electronics. Super cool. I’m having difficulties inserting the video, so please click on the image to watch the video.
Sock it to Me is a Portland, OR based business that designs really cool and bright colored socks. I’ve really gotten into socks the last couple of years. In fact, I have on a pair of bright red, knee-highs with white diamond outlines as I type! Anywho, Sock it to Me is hosting a sock design contest. Entries are due by the end of this month (the 26th to be exact) and you can submit up to 5 designs. What will I win, you ask? How does $500 and getting your design produced on a pair of socks sound?! Awesome, I know. You can read more (rules and regulations) and download the template on their blog.
Good Luck sock designers! What will you use your winnings for? More socks?
