Found Friday Vol 34


Last week it was Found Friday #33 – Scottie Pippen – this week, #34. Shaq? Fernando Pisani? Walter Payton? Your call. You’re all probably wondering what the hell is wrong with me, but this is actually how I remember numbers. Anyway, back on topic: this week’s design finds from the depths of the internet are splendid: tips on speeding up WordPress, a Star Wars typography poster series, awesome Marshall headphones (gotta have music at your desk, right?), custom dock icons for designers, and a must-read article from A List Apart on Art Direction vs. Design. Read on, readers!

Marshall Headphones

I personally don’t have to use headphones at my workstation (I’M MY OWN MAN!) but many of you might; these awesome Marshall headphones look good, I’d bet they sound great, and they show off how down you are with the rock and rolls. That’s what the kids say these days, right?
