I Work for Who?

October 24, 2008

The brain child of Michael Cina & Michael Young, YOUWORKFORTHEM is an online store based out of Minneapolis, MN that is tailored to designers and all things design. A fun mixture of design elements, books, shirts and information YouWorkForThem is a designer’s dream store. Aesthetically pleasing and simplistically beautiful, the site entices you to poke around and explore. Their BLOG is exceptional and always very interesting both visually and intellectually. Thanks to the ILOVETYPOGROPHY.COM blog for the Sunday Type post that got me interested.

YouWorkForThem 6th Anniversary

YouWorkForThem 6th Anniversary

I apologize for not posting anything in a long time but that is what happens when you are learning new things on your own. I spent time collecting information not sharing it. So i’m going to share with you a site that has some great functional downloads. Bittbox is a site dedicated to sharing and finding freebies and content for photoshop and illustrator. I have personally found it to be very helpful with many interesting elements. See what you can grab or if it’s really that great.

Font Me Not

May 20, 2008

Just looking around this weekend in New York wasting time between my sister’s wedding events looking at all the pop and environmental design and I realized that everyone loves the same fonts. I think I spotted futura a realistic 50 or 60 times.

So in the interest of freshness I’m cleaning out my “fridge” and getting into some new stuff. Found a new site, font shop, filled with great ideas. The blog is excellent.
