The Cover Response to Trump

I know I haven’t been very active lately (with the exception of the monthly wallpaper round-up), so lets just blame that on life! Between work and my new workout routine (have any of you gone to an F-45 gym?) I haven’t had a lot of time to devote to being creative.

Happy New Year!

// Happy New Yearby: Jackson Alves

Happy New Year to all of my wonderful readers! Hope everyone has a fantastic 2013, full of creativity, love and excitement. It’s the year of the snake, and from what my mom tells me, out of all the zodiac signs, this is going to be an amazing year for the Virgo (whoohoo my sign!) so for all your Virgo’s out there, get ready for an exciting year ahead!

…and I just noticed when I got to work this morning, I didn’t have a 2013 calendar yet! So I will be working on a post for next week with a bunch of awesome typographic calendars for sale, for those of you who procrastinated on purchasing one, like myself.

it’s that time of year…

Hey everyone…it’s vacation time! I am going to Europe on a mini adventure for a week, so posts will be more scarce. I’ll look for awesome typography while I’m away, and post all of the cool pics when I get back :) Have a great week!
