  • Get Your Hurricane Sandy Relief T-Shirts Here.

    / Comments (0)

    "I Still Love NY" and "Manhattan Blackout" were designed by Sebastian Errazuriz, whose studio was paralyzed after the hurricane. Unable to work and tired of watching the horrible disaster unfold on the news, Errazuriz decided to design something to help raise much-needed relief funds. This idea occurred to him after seeing the water line marked on the walls of the flooded galleries in New York’s Chelsea art district.

    The t-shirts are available for purchase at GREY AREA. 100% of the profit goes to Hurricane Sandy relief programs.


    Here in Boston, copywriter Dylan Klymenko created 100 of these posters with pretty much the same idea as Errazuriz. They're available here.

    And you can find a list of other ways to help out here.

  • New App 'Fontly' Lets You Capture, Map & Explore the World of Vintage Typography.

    / Comments (0)

    Fontly is an iPhone, Android and web app for capturing, mapping, and exploring the world of vintage typography around us.

    The goal of Fontly is to collect and share found lettering all across the globe. To create a living, collaborative, digital archive filled with examples of unique type and signage that speak of a bygone era.

    Founded in August 2012 by Boston-based entrepreneur and designer Brendan Ciecko, Fontly aims to collect and share found lettering all across the globe. To create a living, collaborative, digital archive filled with examples of unique type and signage that speak of a bygone era. “Our users are taking photos of the world’s ghost signs, neon, architectural, foil lettering, hand-painted, and other typographical wonders. They’re helping to highlight and preserve this invaluable part of our visual heritage,” says Ciecko.

    Ciecko is obviously passionate about typography and architectural preservation. As an avid traveler, he would often photograph fading and historic signage in various cities and countries. He quickly realized that historic signs and lettering tell an important story about a city’s and community’s identity, but many are at risk of vanishing. This inspired him to develop a tool for users to document these visual aspects of our cultural heritage. With the Fontly app, Ciecko believes that everyone can play a role in preserving our collective visual history.

    So, wanna give it a try?
