Numerografía Numbers

Numerografia

Some­thing really beau­ti­ful about these num­bers. It’s prob­a­bly because I’m a sucker for schematic draw­ings. They were designed for a Yorokobu mag­a­zine sec­tion called “Numero­grafía”. Designed by a Span­ish designer who goes by the name of Wete.

Neue Haas Grotesk

Font Bureau has cre­ated this won­der­ful mini-site all about the excel­lent type­face Neue Haas Grotesk. It explains the his­tory of the face, along with a nice sec­tion on its fea­tures and what makes it dif­fer­ent from Hel­vetica. An instant valu­able resource.

Bosh Magazine

Bosh Magazine

Back in 2007, the cre­ators of the motor­cy­cle mag­a­zine DicE included a 16 page skate mag­a­zine called BosH in the mid­dle of it. The mag­a­zine fea­tures images that spanned the early days of skat­ing, and also inter­views with skate leg­ends like Steve Olson and Duane Peters. BosH only lasted 3 years, but it seems to me like it was one of the best skate pub­li­ca­tions pro­duced in a while. I really love the cover designs and the use of min­i­mal pho­tog­ra­phy, and the type is perfect.

Tom Car­nase has cre­ated some of the most iconic logo­types for Brooks Broth­ers, Saks Fifth Avenue and Calvin Klein, just to name a few. He also worked along side Herb Lubalin and helped him cre­ate the pop­u­lar Avant Garde type­face.
