Typostrate video wednesday 26

Print me one more time" is a non-profit project created by a printer and a graphic designer working in close collaboration. Responsible for the printing and Magic mechanical was Yann Cloutier. He also contacted us last week for showing this video to our followers and fans.

About the video

The lust for work may be innate but we have to learn working hard. Our common desire for the noble craft and contemporary graphic design brings us this cross-sectional shape which is for us the foundation of this project.
Poster “PMOMT” is the first part of a project oriented to develop with different kind of printed media. The posters are limited and made with a real Heidelberg offset press machine. Finalized the poster can be rolled together and you can see words when moving the letters in the perfect overlayed position. Get your poster now and support this project!

Cabin Porn, the book.
We’re happy to share that Cabin Porn – our labor of love – yielded a new creative opportunity for us. We’re making a full-color book about the cabins you built and shared with us. Little Brown will publish it.
In the book we will share our story of Beaver Brook, as well as feature ten other cabins and their builders with original photography by Noah Kalina and stories by Steven Leckart. Plus, we’ll include hundreds of cabins submitted by the community. All of this combined, we hope, will be a brilliant reference to inspire you to make your quiet place somewhere.
To get on the waiting list for the book, sign up here.
Thank you for your support over the past four years, and most important thank you for generously sharing the cabins you’ve discovered, built and loved. If you haven’t shown us your cabin yet, please do now. We’d enjoy considering it for the book.
– Residents of Beaver Brook

Bending on almost-invisible hinges, Ghostcube is a system of wooden cubes that can create different structures depending on how they’re twisted and rearranged. They’re made by Stockholm-based artist Erik Åberg.

If you’ve seen Brusspup’s Amazing Moving Cube tutorial, then you’ll have an idea about how Ghostcube may have been constructed, and how you can DIY something similar. Get started!

Video cameras have been attached to hula hoops, trombones, and Fijian crab lairs, but this is the first time we’ve seen one do a kickflip backside lipslide (at 1m02s in slow motion). Watch what it’s like to be pro skater Dean-Paul Denniston’s board.

In the archives: more skateboarding vids and tricks of all kinds.

Which tire will roll down the ski jump fastest and jump the farthest? A Formula One tire? An enormous bulldozer tire? The smallest tire? This clip from Japanese television has made the rounds in years past, but the video source disappeared. We watched it again when it reappeared on Metafilter. Gotta love the lab coats, white gloves, and the surprising last jump.

So which of these six tires would you guess makes the biggest jump? And why?

In the archives, more physics of falling and jumping: domino chain reaction, 2,000 ping pong balls and 30 teachers in zero-g, a cat landing on its feet, and the jumping sand flea robot.

A papercraft snake that can twist and turn! Find out how to make your own in this video tutorial by dutchpapergirl. Pdfs of the pattern are here. Next: what else can you make with this style of paper hinge?

Typostrate video wednesday 23

Last week Dan Bryant from D&AD wrote to us with the question if we can show some videos which they found in their archives, showing some nice typography ideas, conceptions and documentations. For the typostrate video wdnesday we make a, exception and show all 5 videos.

Mercurius Discovered

The first video plays at Monotype’s Archive, Type Director Dan Rhatigan unearths the original drawings for a typeface he’s never seen before, Mercurius.

Hot Metal Histories

The second one is about hot metal types. Has the digitisation of Typography killed the craft? For our second film with Monotype we decided to talk to Robin Nicholas who has been working in type for over 45 years and has seen firsthand those changes — from pencil to pixel.

The Helvetica Debate

The third film is a helvetica debate. When we disovered that one of our favourite graphic artists, Supermundane, had a lifelong love of typography, we knew we had to bring him down to the Monotype Archives.

Exploring Gill Sans

In the fourth film in our series, A Living History of Type, Type Director Dan Rhatigan unearths the project files for Gill Sans, one of the most iconic typefaces in the Monotype Archive.

Meet Bodoni and Rockwell

At least Monotype Type Director Dan Rhatigan, and We Are Shadows’ Creative Director James Lee Duffy dust off some more archived typeface material, and discuss the origins of Bodoni and Rockwell.

Thanks to Dan for the great collection of films. There are even more films coming. So watch out.

This sommerrodelbahn alpine coaster in Mieders, Austria, has been on our Must Do list since we saw this viral video a few years ago. The video above is from the same 2.8km (1.7 mile) summer mountain coaster and follows a brave 6 year old lad down 640 meters (2100 feet) into the valley, over fields and bridges, through the woods and countless switchbacks, all at a pretty quick pace!

More rides: Coney Island Love Letter and The Centrifuge Brain Project.

Delivered with 380 glyphs, many ligatures and a panel of alternative letters, it brings to you the power of making better combinations.
