All of Shel Silverstein books of poems were my absolutely favorites as a kid. This typography quote poster was created in admiration of his words. I tried to bring his language and poetry to life with each quirky letter and type setting. By using typefaces I created (Lunchbox & Lunchbox Slab) I was able to customize areas to fit the words.
The color and texture in the prints are inspired by a combination of watercolor textures and silk screen printing.
Poster has been printed at 1440 dpi on 90 lbs Studio Watercolor Paper. Available in various sizes. On sale at Etsy!
'1-Hour Photo' App Makes You Wait For Your Digital Images To ‘Develop'
The app, available for free at the Apple store, hopes to make users value the special moments that they have captured by preventing them from reviewing or retaking their photos.
Interestingly, photos taken with the ‘1-Hour’ app are developed in black and white, perhaps to complement the nostalgic charm of the app.
Lovely app idea. Hope this catches on. Makes you slow down and frame shot properly rather than rush it
The whole goal for people using Concise is that they can use the framework to fuel their own creations. The framework comes with very few predefined styles, so overriding styles is never a hassle.
I want people to not use these bloated front-end frameworks out of necessity. I want there to be an option that is lean, easy-to-use, and easy to learn.

55 Hi’s was started in 2010 by Ross Moody as a simple means of spreading inspiring quotes and quirky ideas. It has since spiraled out of control—in the best way possible—into an online greetings collective, of sorts. A destination for graphic goodness, tasteful typography, and artful alliteration.
At 55 Hi’s, sincere life lessons are laid delicately onto handmade french paper where they frolic joyfully, side-by-side, with cards that become shot glasses. Why? Because both of those things will make you smile, and smiling is a nice thing.
Google have released Web Fundamentals - a comprehensive resource for multi-device web development - and a Web Starter Kit boilerplate. They wrote a blog post about it all called Web Fundamentals and Web Starter Kit: Resources for Modern Web Development:
Web Fundamentals’ guidelines are intended to be fundamental to the platform: useful no matter which framework you choose or which browser your users run. We have articles about responsive layouts, forms, touch, media, performance, device capabilities, and setting up a development workflow. Articles cover both coding and design. For example, the article on layout design patterns explains both the usability tradeoffs between different layout options and how to implement them. The performance section complements PageSpeed Insights, an auditing tool that encourages instant (<1 second) mobile web sites.
Designed to help you apply Web Fundamentals’ best practices in new projects, Web Starter Kit is a lightweight boilerplate with templates and tooling. Web Starter Kit gives you responsive layout, a visual style guide, and optional workflow features like performance optimization so you can keep your pages lean and fast.
