As I was browsing through Behance, I stumbled upon these motivational posters designed by Morgan Jones, and they instantly appealed to me! There is something totally calming yet compelling about them, so I decided to share :) I would love these to hang up in my cubicle!
Don’t forget to pick up the Jan/Feb edition of Communication Arts. It is their Typography Annual and they’ve featured some great typographical creations. My favorite winner was Leen Sadder, who created a hand-lettered umbrella that was part of a project for Stefan Sagmeister’s class at SVA “Can Design Touch Someone’s Heart”. The premise of the project was to touch the hearts of umbrella-less New Yorkers on a rainy day. Sadder dressed up as Mary Poppins and escorted people across the street carrying a hand-lettered umbrella and a bag of chocolate-dipped spoons. The umrella was truly amazing—wish it was real and on sale! You can check out all of the photos and the process here.
As we all know tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and in celebration, I found this great kinetic typography video by Earl Cabuhat in which he typographically lays out the poem Love Like by Shihan. He created the video as a present for his wife for their second wedding anniversary—how sweet!
In honor of the re-release of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace this past weekend, enjoy some awesome typography posters made by typographer Matteo Civaschi, and the H-57 Creative Station ad agency.
This is a great video that gives tips on how to stay creative. My favorite: #16: Allow yourself to make mistakes. What’s yours? Comment away :)
