Trends in graphic design

Whenever I am uninspired I checkout Trendlist. Not a fan of all trends but it is refreshing to see more unconventional work. There is a handy popularity timeline for each trend like Left, Right, Up & Down.

Trend List's task is to search, name and sorts these graphic design tendencies. Trend List tries to spot where and when they rise, which countries they're popular in and how they evolve over time. Trend List showcases posters, books, catalogs, magazines, album covers, and invitations for the cultural sphere.

Playground Guide Berlin

We love Berlins Playgrounds!

Thats why we created this online guide. Jari (my daughter) and I have been exploring and photographing amazing places in this city for years. And finally we managed to put them online. Berlin is such an amazing place for children with adventures around every corner. But the best playgrounds are often hidden – Dragons, Pirate ships, water slides, carousels, huge climbing meshes and giant climbing domes, artificial rocky mountains and so much more. It’s much more fun than any Disneyland could be!

Making the lives of people with different incomes visible

Making the lives of people with different incomes visible

Dollar Street

Imagine the world as a street ordered by income. Everyone lives somewhere on the street. The poorest lives to the left and the richest to the right. Everybody else live somewhere in between. Welcome to visit all homes on Dollar Street!

Dollar Street was invented by Anna Rosling Rönnlund at Gapminder.  For 15 years she spent her workdays making global public data easier to understand and use. Over time her frustration grew: carefully selecting data to present it in colorful and moving charts made overall global trends and patterns easier to understand. But it did not make everyday life on different income levels understandable. Especially not in places far from home. “People in other cultures are often portrayed as scary or exotic.” Anna explains: “This has to change. We want to show how people really live. It seemed natural to use photos as data so people can see for themselves what life looks like on different income levels. Dollar Street lets you visit many, many homes all over the world. Without travelling.”

Typeface combinations and recommendations

Typeface combinations and recommendations

Typewolf

I launched Typewolf as a side project in June of 2013. Working as a designer, I was always frustrated by the lack of good resources for choosing fonts for design projects. Seeing type samples set in “the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” isn’t very useful when it comes to web design—seeing how real type performs on actual websites is much more helpful. I’ve also noticed that other typography sites tend to be written from a type designer’s perspective rather than from the perspective of someone who actually uses type in their day-to-day work. I’ve been a designer for 17 years, so everything on Typewolf is approached from a designer’s perspective. My goal is to make Typewolf the absolute best resource available for everything related to typography on the web. Typewolf will always remain an independent site that features typefaces from all type foundries regardless of where the fonts can be purchased.

All-things stationary and graphic design

All-things stationary and graphic design

Present & Correct

Keeps my Twitter feed fresh with new and timeless graphic design. From time to time they also share wonderful collections of things.

P&C opened its virtual doors in 2009. A place for our own designs, things we love by other designers from around the world & vintage items which we discover on trips and foraging expedition. It's a showcase for the things we have enjoyed since school. A long-term obsession with stationery has culminated in a constantly evolving store. Paper and office objects which are inspired by homework, the post office and school. We are both graphic designers and go on sourcing trips around four times a year with the hope of finding some vintage gems. The hunting is fun and currently we stock stationery from 18+ different countries. We want to spark a distant memory, make you smile or look at the most mundane in a new, and fonder, light.

Conserve the sound

So many satisfying sounds. My favourite sound: Kassettenrekorder SONY CFD-101. If you like the project you should have a look at their video interviews, especially this one.

An online museum for vanishing and endangered sounds. The sound of a dial telephone, a walkman, a analog typewriter, a pay phone, a 56k modem, a nuclear power plant or even a cell phone keypad are partially already gone or are about to disappear from our daily life.
