I think everyone likes finding a good free font, so I thought I’d toss this one out to everyone. It’s a new font from the folks over at Gestalten called Frank Bold Ltd, and features kind of a cleaned up, fresher looking blackletter that looks pretty sweet. I can already think of a project that I’d like to use this one for.
Last night I went to the opening of the Generic Man pop-up shop at Space 15 Twenty here in Los Angeles. The event was in conjunction with the launch of Generic Man’s Spring/Summer ’09 line, as well as the addition of a rather sexy line of women’s shoes as well. The evening was rather fun, with plenty of good looking, well dressed people in attendance.
The pop-up itself was beautiful, with lots of structures made of recycled materials like wood and cardboard. The decorations were great, including Generic Ceramics or Pottery or something like that, a line of pots that were for sale and contained some nice succulents. There was also a flat gray Fiat parked in the middle of the space, looking tiny and cute.
To further compliment the shoes and atmosphere there were issues of Arkitip strewn about as well as a display for SUPER Sunglasses. You could even buy the furniture that was on display! If you’re around LA I’d definitely suggest you stop by, they’ve made a really great space.
Check under the cut for a ton more photos and details of the space.

I got an email from Larry over at GrandArmy last week letting me know that they updated their site with a bunch of new material. He definitely wasn’t kidding, as their site is now packed to the brim with really great new work. They’ve made books, skateboards, silk-screened posters, created fonts and even helped get the Marty McFly dunks put into production.
One of my favorite projects was the branding and collateral they did for WNTD, a consulting and recruiting company. They created these amazing Spirograph looking pieces that are really detailed and beautiful. I would absolutely do a double-take if I saw this in person. There are a couple more of these under the cut, check ‘em out.

Maxim Zhestkov is a Russian artist who does some damn amazing things with CG graphics. A lot of his work is beautifully minimal, using mostly black and white with occasional splashes of colors, but his work still packs quite a creative punch. The video above is called Modul, and it’s kind of a reel of amazing shapes exploding, stretching, morphing doing all kinds of crazy things.
I’d also highly suggest you check out his film for Nokia and Universaleverything which is absolutely brilliant. Click here to watch it.
I was browsing through the Igloo Store online today and I came across this hysterical tape by Stella Bugbee called Navaglow Tape. Obviously taking it’s name from Navajo patterns and bright colors, I think these would be so much fun to decorate packages with. Such a clever and simple idea.
