Piece Of Cake - Delicious Still Life Typography

We love when food and design are integrated in unique ways. Moscow-based designer and art director Luda Galchenko has created letters that correspond to the name of her website, “Piece of Cake”, with yummy-looking food. Each letter is carefully crafted with saliva inducing treats and photographed to create the spelling of her site. 
She describes the project as: "Piece of Cake Still Font is a self initiated typographic project that explores the connections between type and still life."

Nike's Defender Hand-Drawn Typeface Is Beautiful 

Illustrator, Alexis Marcou, has created this inspirational and detailed hand drawn font for Nike MLB called 'Defender'. Using pencil and ink, each letter has a nice balance of hard angles and monochromatic black and gray which produces a very a font that is masculine yet soft and gentle to the eye. This is a style very unique to the artist. You may recognize this style in other Nike work. He has worked on several projects for the company.

Logo Design Style Swap

Writer, Jenna Giles , experimented with logo swapping for a recent article. She Focused on famous luxury fashion brands and deliberately swapped them with companies that could not be more different.

 

This logo design swap study proves that design, typography and color play an integral role in branding.  When swapped, these logos loose their identity - the look, tone and feel are all amiss to the brands they represent. How would your logo stand up in a swap?

Gastrotypographicalassemblage (video)

What is Gastrotypographicalassemblage? It is literally a 35 foot-long, 3D typographic mural that spells out food related words. 

From 1966 to 1989, Gastrotypographicalassemblage was on display in the staff dining room at CBS Network headquarters in the legendary Black Rock building in Manhattan. But, for the last 25 years one of the world's largest modern typographic artworks has been hidden away in a basement on Long Island. Thanks to a long-standing member of the Board of Trustees at The Culinary Institute of America it has a second life now. It is now on display for the first time in a quarter of a century at the CIA. "Gastrotypographicalassemblage" is a focal point of The Culinary Institute of America's new Marriott Pavilion and Conference Center in Hyde Park, NY.

Nick has begun documenting all the various and unique type that embellish these buildings. From retro to ultra-modern, basic stencil to handwritten, each one gives character and personality to the building it identifies. Check out all of the images on the Instagram page.

Typographical Mural Done By Hand (video)

Sometimes creative work is best done the traditional way, by hand. See how designer and illustrator Ben Johnston created this beautiful type based mural which features a quote by none other than gen-x icon, Ferris Bueller — it reads, “Life moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop and look once in a while, you could miss it”. It took Johnston 15 hours in a single day to complete with just pen, paint and marker. 

This should be an inspiration to all of us!
