Dota 2 Hero Portraits

Submitted by on August 17, 2011 Gaming

These were screenshotted from the MYM v M5 game hero selection.  The spectator had his cursor over the Dire portrait the whole time, so sorry for that.  I’ll be grabbing more as the games go on.

Typographic Lesson Plan

“Typography is known for two-dimensional architecture & requires extra zeal within every job.”

Ever wonder what each and every part of every character is called? This poster was put together by Scott BomsGrant Hutchinson, two typographic industry veterans, explains just that. If they manage to do another run you can get them here, otherwise you’ll be left drooling over your computer screen wishing they would.

Scope the images after the break to check the quality of this print; spoiler: it’s letterpress.

Custom Portal Ringtones MK. II

Submitted by on April 19, 2011 Originals
Glados 3

A few years ago, I wrote a tutorial on how to make your own custom GLaDOS style ringtones.  With Portal 2 now upon us, I thought there might be some new test subjects that would be interested in this info. I’ve included the MP3s that I made in the post as well, just to give you an idea of what the results sound like.

Here’s the MP3 for text message and email notification. Enjoy!

EVOL

While EVOL might not have the same recognition as an artist like Banksy, he wields the stencil with just as much flair.  His work falls into two categories: incredibly simple, or exceedingly complex.   While the latter is interesting in its own right, using no less than six stencils to produce the piece illustrated above (on cardboard!!!), it’s his simple ideas that really shine.

See what I mean after the break.

Vintage Twitter

Vintage-Twitter

Kudos to the marketing guy (or girl!) that came up with this concept.  Apparently, these vintage Twitter boxes were given away at a recent web development conference in Sweden.  They contained 500 Post-It notes and a pencil, which is all you really need to get started.  Now you can make inane, 140-character messages about what you’re having for lunch offline!

Speaking of inane, please follow us.

Jessica Hische

Jessica Hische is a Brooklyn based designer with a penchant for typography. Even the design and illustration sections of her portfolio are pretty type heavy. And why not? She obviously gets it, and her letterforms are interesting enough to warrant that kind of emphasis. Plus, she’s a fan of sriracha, so you know she’s got her head in the right place.  If you’re still skeptical of her dedication to lettering, Hische is also running a sweet project called Daily Drop Cap.

This picture (which is destined to be turned into a print, I’m sure) was one of five she created for Friends of Type, which is home to some pretty sweet design in its own right.

Eyjafjallajökull Time Lapse

Submitted by on November 11, 2010 Photography

This video by Sean Stiegemeier is beyond awesome.  Long after everyone forgets the volcano that no one could pronounce, I’ll still be drooling over these slow-pans through barren Nordic landscapes.  Of course, it helps that the natural geography of Iceland is like something out of a Terry Brooks novel turned up to eleven, even without the fissure in the earth spitting up never-ending plumes of sulphur and ash.  You could point your camera at pretty much anything up there and walk away with a cinematic epic.
