Art of the Menu

Posted in Art & Design, Typography by Natalie on October 26, 2011

This is awesome! Art of the Menu is a new blog from UnderConsideration, which chronicles all things graphic design. Art of the Menu explores beautiful menus from around the world (they even have one from Pittsburgh!). I could eat out every day of the week (although, sadly my budget doesn’t allow it), and I think it’s great when a restaurant takes the time to work on their brand image, and the menu is a key part to this. Everyone that comes to your restaurant is going to look at it, so it better look good! It’s one of your first chances to represent yourself and impress your customers. Check out some of the awesome designs:

Sorry I’m late. I had car trouble….True story! My sincere apologies for bringing Typography Tuesday to you a day late, but I was dealing with tow trucks, dead batteries, dealerships, and warranties yesterday. Ugh. But without further ado here’s a few type tidbits:

Word as Image – Animated Typography

Posted in Art & Design, Typography, Video by Natalie on October 13, 2011

This video acts as a trailer for a book by Ji Lee, which, you guessed it, visually turns words into images. The concept is actually pretty simple once you see it action. Check out the trailer below (my favorites are inflation and silicon).

 

Also, speaking of Ji Lee, I have to mention her Bubble Project. This is SO clever yet simple. I love it!
