Coversourcing – Book Jacket Design Competition

So, I caught this link on Coudal’s Fresh Signals, and decided I wanted to give it a try, so I thought of this idea, hashed it out, then read the terms and conditions:

This competition is open to anyone aged 16 or over who is a resident of the UK or the Republic of Ireland except for employees of The Random House Group Limited (the promoter), its subsidiary companies, their families and any other company connected with the competition.

Ill see what happens.

Crowdsourcing Cover Design

Zach Galifianakis and Michael Cera or How come you look so much like cootie kid.

Zach Galifianakis is funny because you just have no idea what hes going to do next. Michael Cera is funny because if you throw a ball at him he turns his back to it. Put them together and… Just watch it. via chris glass.

My Font Experiment

Kris SansSo, If you don’t know this about me, I really enjoy typography. So with that being said, I wanted to make a simple font, with a straight line and a circle. Thats it. Rules were that I could rotate the line any degree however I could only crop the line and circle at 90 degree angles, the only rule i bent was to slightly increase the x height of the lowercase o, apparently your eye plays tricks on you if you don’t. So here is my complete lowercase set for what I am calling Kris Sans. Simple like my name, no frills and my first attempt at creating a font. Surprisingly, this took a lot longer than I thought it would. I can see how people get lost in the little details of a letter on the micro level.

The new year will bring my new design, but for now I will try to post something, hopefully once a day, until I transfer my site over.. For now here is a beautiful short by Yves Geleyn about a bird and his home, not as touching as the kiwi, but beautiful in its own right. (via motionographer)
