This gin packaging is so cool. Designed by Simone Hodgskiss (aka Pearly Yon), an Australian illustrator, designer and letterer for a micro distillery in Belgium. Hodgskiss’ illustrations are inspired by tattoo style line work, and the color selections as well as the print finish are simply amazing.
And this is the first batch of Bonnie & Clyde, where all the beautiful type has been created from scratch by Pearly Yon, finding inspiration from the 1930’s era.
Written and designed by Jessica Hische, this looks like a great kids book with gorgeous lettering. “It’s an uplifting bedtime book about aspiring to do great things tomorrow, reflecting on what you’ve done today, and forgiving yourself for what you haven’t been able to do.” The book will be out on October 2018.
Brazilian digital designer Vinicius Araújo created a different letter of the alphabet for his project 36days Electronics. He only used Helvetica typeface and all letters were inspired by specific electronic items and brands, like a retro Apple computer, a Canon camera, a Dell monitor, an Epson printer, an LG air conditioner, a retro Motorola mobile etc. The execution and attention in the detail is amazing and Araújo has even designed a small gif animation for some of the letters .

I did not know that lyric videos were a thing, until my 10 year-old daughter told me about it! The song “Shape Of You” by Ed Sheeran is on her playlist for sometime now, but I had never watched this video before. This is not actually the official video, but the official lyric video for the song, illustrated and directed by Charlotte Audrey. Love the playful animated lettering!
