listening to

some ben folds lately. I've been a pretty die hard folds fan for at least the past 5 years. I don't think I ever get sick of listening to him; I just end up listening to other artists because I get momentarily distracted :) But yes, ben - rest assured, I always return. Here's what I found myself repeating the other night:

not the same

learn to live with what you are

TypeOh! Tuesday #57

Happy Tuesday! I'm going to change things up a little bit this week, and share my favorite free fonts I've been using lately. These have been great from designing business cards, to corporate identities, to invitations and presentations. Hopefully some of these will be new to you and you'll get as much use out of them as I have :) Just click on any preview to be brought to the download page. Enjoy!

input '0' for the free download :)

TypeOh! Tuesday #56

Happy Tuesday! I had seen a few of Yulia Brodskaya's papergraphic work a while back, but when I found out she did the upcoming HOW typography cover, I spent some serious time on her website, checking out all of the amazing work she's been up to. I am in complete and utter awe of what she does. This takes design to a whole new level in my opinion, so this week, TypeOh! is all about her. Check out her site for sooo much more than these favorites of mine!

listening to

the 'Once' soundtrack obsessively. And I don't use that term loosely - 12 album listens in 2 days! I watched the movie the other night and was completely hooked (obviously). I really love all of the songs on the album, but here are my top 3:

TypeOh! Tuesday #55

Happy Tuesday everyone! I subscribe to a few popular graphic design magazines, and one of them happens to be HOW. I got an e-newsletter yesterday from those lovely HOW people, encouraging their readers to check out Friends Of Type..which just so happen to be a collaboration of type awesomeness! A bunch of these I had seen numerous times before, but didn't even realize it came from them (them being Aaron Carámbula, Erik Marinovich, Jason Wong, and Dennis Payongayong). So, being so inspired by said awesomeness, I've decided to grab my favorites this week from their site. Please don't forget to check all of them out at!

their punk as fuck is better than my punk as fuck.

this one's pretty fantastic..give it a sec

summertime songs

While working on some personal projects last night, I got the itch to listen to songs that would get me excited about summer/remind me of summertime. The weatherman said today is going to be the 13th day in a row of 90+ here in Georgia..pretty insane. I think good music always makes the extra hot weather a little more bearable - so even though these don't necessarily go together genre-wise, i love them all for making me think of summer and feel that it really is summer! (i may or may not have gotten a little carried away)

Never Know - Jack Johnson

Dashboard - Modest Mouse

Daylight - Matt and Kim

Crooked Teeth - Death Cab for Cutie

Beautiful - G.Love + Tristan Prettyman

The Middle - Jimmy Eat World

Miss Magnolia - Matt Costa

Air Mattress - Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band

Center of Attention - Guster

Free - Donavan Frankenreiter + Jack Johnson

TypeOh! Tuesday #54

Happy Tuesday, Y'all! I had the epiphany at the end of last week that I think in y'all's now, which I thought was kind of funny at first, then I realized it's sort of a big deal. I spent my first 20 years in upstate NY getting my long a's down (which just leads to rosy cheeks of embarrassment when I'm called out on it now), 2 extra long years spent in the great diversity of Savannah, which by the way yields not even the slightest southern twang on a northerner (just the thought of that twang contributed to my ambition to go) - then two years spent in a close suburb of atlanta and still nothing. I have been working in a very north georgia office for only 7 months now, and I'm thinking in y'alls. This is a big deal. I'm not sure how I feel about it just yet, or how often I'll let it slip on the phone calls back home with my family, but I think a decision is in order. How long can a northerner avoid y'all? Guess I'm going to find out.

Anyway, sorry to go off topic there. Today's type has nothing to do with that story, but here's some inspiration to get through the first half of this week!
