Wordmark It

This clever little website loads all of the typefaces from your computer and displays them in a grid. Just hit load, then type any word and browse away…handy!

Saw this while browsing on Frame Magazine‘s website – A pop-up shoe stand in London’s Selfridge’s shop used simple building blocks to not only display shoes, but to invite visitors of all ages to play with the design. The brightly coloured blocks (10 cm by 10 cm) are loose, allowing guests to move them and create patterns. A total of 424 white squares were arranged in heights from 5 to 120 cm high. A simple but effective and fun shoe display!

A colleague stumbled upon these lovely products from Bodie & Fou whilst researching for an upcoming restaurant fit-out…Have a look at the distressed wood wallpaper too!

Professional book cover designer Kate designed this cover for her brother’s newest short story e-book, released this month on Amazon.

I like the raw simplicity of this space and the vibrant graphic colours that juxtapose against it.

This is the start of what I hope will be an interesting visual diary of  interior, exhibition & graphic design. As a designer I’m hoping this will allow me to build a constantly changing mood-board of ideas and may showcase the designs that inspire me from day to day…I hope that it might act as a resourse for other designers or potential clients browsing for inspiration too!

This is my inspiration for today, the Folly bar & restaurant in London, as featured on Coolboom recently…
