Happy World Graphic Design Day
Today is World Graphic Design Day - and I celebrated by buying a new font, called 'Kelvar Slab' (which I've used above) from the fantastic design and typography studio 'Letterbox'. They took festivities to a whole new level, by putting a font for sale on eBay. I haven't checked the auction results yet, but it'll be interesting to see how it goes - it's never been done before.
Anyway, it's been fun posting about different designers all week. I've learned heaps and have new found respect for some designers I didn't know much about before. A highlight for me has been Paula Scher's maps. When I've finished my freelance job I might do a map of my daily walks in Bondi. Also next week is Fashion Week in Sydney. Won't be posting every day but will post my favourites.
