Font Mixing

I’m a huge typography nerd, so when I came across this article from H&FJ, I got really excited. I always want to get my fonts just right and it’s hard sometimes to mix them in just the right ways. Read on to find out which fonts go best together for a certain look. The fonts they use in this article have to be purchased, but you could use them as guidelines for fonts available to you! Happy font mixing!

Lovely Lampshades

I love a good lampshade. Here are some really cool ones that I found recently. Talk about eye candy! These first two silk screened beauties by Dawn Bassett of LiT Shades can be found at Piano Nobile. I love anything with great typography. Those following the first two are also creations of LiT Shades. Dawn at LiT Shades combines new shades with vintage and second hand shop bases, thus creating fine looking lamps!

Here’s a different take on the lampshade. Designer Tord Boontje’s work just plain amazes me. He uses a variety of materials in the construction of his pieces like metal, paper, acetate, ribbon, cotton, silk, etc. Even when using metal, his pieces look completely wild and organic. Gotta love ’em.
