Hannah by YouWorkForThem

New fonts are always fun, so I was excited to see this fancy font from YouWorkForThem called Hannah. As the site says, it’s “comprised of three versions that work together as one, producing not variation and contrast between weights but between widths.” It’s a quirky hand drawn type that has all sorts of character, and is only $35. Perfect.

Rise & Shine by The Little Ones

You ever have one of those mornings where you wake up with a song in your head, and you can’t figure out what it is? Well I did this morning, so I got up to Google the garbled lyrics floating around my head, but to no avail. Finally though, I did figure it out, and it ended up being Rise & Shine by The Little Ones, a fitting song to wake up to. This is from their first full length album called Morning Tide, which is actually a really great album, very pop-y and fun. Plus they’re Los Angeles boys, so I have to give them props there.

I’ve posted the live performance they did above as well as the MP3 so you can hear the original as well. Good Monday everyone.


Kustaa Saksi Interview

I’ve been a fan of Kustaa Saksi’s work for a bit now, I posted about it him back in June, so I was stoked to see that Submarine Channel had done a cool interview with him. As a part of their Pretty Cool People Interviews they delve into the minds of artists to learn a little more about them. The interview took place right before his recent show at Maxalaot Amsterdam back in December. It also gives you a behind the scenes look at a 3D sculpture he created which also grazed the cover of SHIFT.

Have a watch, he seems like a pretty rad guy.


Anything Design

I came across Anything Design through a magazine the other day and thought they had made some really incredible projects. Anything is a collaboration between UK designer Michael Sodeau and the Japanese company Suikosha. The products are extremely simple and minimal, sort of Muji-esque, but come in some unique shapes and bright colors. I’m totally smitten over the tape dispenser, which comes in a beautiful upright shape as opposed to it’s normal positioning. I’m not sure where you can pick these up from, but I’m guessing if you sent either Michael or the people at Suikosha a nice email they’d be more than happy to help you out.


Andy Rementer’s Techno Tuesday

I was taking a poke around Andy Rementer’s portfolio site when I happened upon his cute little comic he does called Techno Tuesday. I spotted the comic on a recent issue of this weird LA based magazine that’s free, so I was excited to see that the comics were online as well. It seems to me like a random collection of Andy’s thoughts on technology, most of the time showing how stupidly dependent people are on technology and how they don’t think about normal people anymore.

The one above was the one I saw in that magazine, but there are lots more where that came from, so be sure to click the link above.
