Malmö Festival Poster

Today we got a letter from SNASK, the swedish design agency. As we love their ideas and the way they are working on things, with such great creativity and endless patience, we present to you their new creation.

They have been working with the City of Malmö on the festival Malmöfestivalen for 5 years, Scandinavia’s largest city festival. This year is the 30th anniversary and SNASK decided to do something bigger and better ever done before. And what would be nicer than making the biggest poster ever made and turn it into an entire physical area? Said and done this was done during the period of final idea presented in February followed by 4 months of execution. In the end of May it was built up by hand and photographed 30 meters up in the air. In mid August the poster/area will stand on the festival for people to interact with, sit on, jump on and sleep on. If you have the chance go there and have a view!

Friday Free Font 63

The font was inspired by America’s mid-20th century and road travelling philosophy, especially by Jack Kerouac’s novel ”On the road”. Made by Slava Krivosnov from Tomsk, Russia. Hitchhiker is made with a lot of love for the detail and it flows very good, so you can use it perfectly for headlines and 70s styled prints.

20 Aphorisms

Thanks to the great independant publisher The School Of Life we have here a treasure box of twenty cards with short sentences and large truths put into an attractive yellow box with black embossed print.

About the Box

Aphorisms are short, pithy statements designed to provoke a thrill of recognition at valuable, amusing, dark and perhaps awkward truths. They have selected twenty of our favourite aphorisms from across history and printed them on stiff card, ready to be sent to a friend or to sit on your desk for inspiration. The cards feature quotes from G.K.Chesterton, Cyril Connolly, Otto von Bismark, Nietzsche, Napoleon and even more great thinkers.

About The School Of Life

The School of Life is devoted to developing emotional intelligence through the help of culture. They address such issues as how to find fulfilling work, how to master the art of relationships, how to understand one’s past, how to achieve calm and how better to understand, and where necessary change, the world. Based in London they do a very great job on education and learning for people like you and me.

We love this small box and with what great love it is made. It is the perfect present for a creative person and we think a very good lesson for life.

With this font Emil Kozole, designer and typographer from Ljublijana, Slovenia wanted to experiment with letters, as a research about shapes and different versions and a critic on existing typefaces. Beeing an  uncommercial project, it got its character from japan pop culture and american hip hop subculture. Influenced by gotham and geometric fonts with ornaments, Attitude is a parody of these fonts. Typeface is display, bold and has the Kanye West attitude. With 7 different versions such as Regular, inline, 3d, sliced pattern, soldier pattern and a drunk brother who is sometimes wasted. Each one (except inline) has 2 different styles, depending on using small or capital letters. Made for Posters, Sweatshirts, magazines, cd covers, illustrations, motion graphics the type is very various and has more than 1400 glyphs. Enjoy using it!

We often tell our kids that by the time they’re 16 years old, they may not need to learn how to drive. Self-driving cars for those who can’t drive are an incredible chance to be more autonomous, and for those who can, it could be a luxury, possibly becoming a standard. So cool! At the same time, we’ve asked questions: What happens to the jobs of professional drivers as technology changes their businesses? How has technology shifted the machine/human balance in other industries in the past?

In the news: Google’s Self-Driving Car Project, a 2-seat electric vehicle with no steering wheel, brake pedal, or accelerator. What it does have: a cute little face.

In the archives, a previously featured Prius version, and more electric vehicles: the Spark-Renault Formula-E racecar, a behind-the-scenes tour of Tesla Motors, and the e-volo volocopter.
