It's not often that I see a new typeface design that really grabs me - but that happened yesterday when I was waisting time on Behance. I found this original typeface by Moshik Nadav called Paris and according to him, it is inspired by the world of fashion. I was intrigued by the elegant strokes and when I saw the ligatures I was sold. Check it out!
I can't resist a beautiful book - I need to touch it and smell it... ok that sounds a bit creepy but it's unfortunately true. A book that is wonderfully designed will ALWAYS beat a kindle or e-reader or whatever all those technical reading things are called. Here is an example of a book that makes me want to touch and feel it even though iv'e only seen it on a computer screen. The design is wonderful - and the photography is great too.
I will always be captured by beautiful hand-lettering. It is so personal and in some way nurturing - or that's the feeling I get when I see beautifully crafted letters. I love hand-lettering myself, so I know the precision and devotion you need to have to your project, resulting in something that feels warm and inviting. I came across this project, and wanted to give a hat!
I got a suggestion for a hat this morning - and it was from my uncle Gummi :)
He wanted to take his hat off to me... and I thank him for the compliment! Here is his message, apologies to you foreigners because it is in Icelandic (most of it anyway), and it's a rhyme too so I don't think I will be able to give it justice by translation! But it's pretty cool, trust me :)
I wish I had been more effective in keeping sketchbooks - I always misplace them or just rip out pages to use, and therefore never really have a whole sketchbook to be proud of. Well this girl has loads!! She makes them into something really special - each book is unique.
This is Heidi Burton's work, take a look!

My cousin, who lost her battle to cancer in september 2012, is and will be my inspiration to make the most of life and enjoy myself - and be grateful for all the things I have and can do.
If you want to be truly inspired about the will to live, and the joy for life - read her blog that she kept up for friends and family (to begin with - soon it was visited by thousands) throughout her battle with the disease. The blog is in danish.
Forever in our hearts.
A wonderful site that has info on all the thrift and second hand shops in Copenhagen! I know this is not directly related to design perhaps - but I love to go to stores with old stuff to get inspiration... And when they have old magazines or books - jackpot!!
Also, the clothes are ok .. ;)
