Why hello, dear readers, and welcome to Volume 18 of the world-famous* Found Friday series. This week we have a great mix of design-related (sometimes loosely related, I’ll admit) finds: a fun/simple sign app for iPad/iPhone, a great article on type choices, a preview of the USA World Cup bid design by Pentagram, 9 great and free design ebooks, and some uniquely flavored designer fuel. Read on, readers!
SwissMiss said it best: “Letterboard turns your iPad or iPhone into a sign-board. It lets you create signs in the style seen in airports and convention centers everywhere. Oh, what fun can be had with this?!”
A great article over on The Design Cubicle about free fonts, type choices, and responsibility as a designer. Hell, even if you don’t want to read it, go check out his beautiful site design.
I pretty much put any new Pentagram work in here. It’s always so good, and they do such a great job documenting and explaining it. Check out their work for the USA World Cup Bid in 2018/2022.
eReaders are plummeting in price, and iPads are the new black. Why not even out your Twilight collection with some design-related ebooks?
I love coffee. I love bacon. I’m Canadian, so I like maple (and igloos, polar bears, hockey and donuts). So it stands to reason that this clever, caffeinated concoction would be the stuff of dreams. Plus, we all need fuel for that rush work, late night project, right?
That’s it! See you next week.
