Okay typography lovers, we got a juicy steak for you all in this post. Michiel Van Der Born has gone from A-Z in acrylic. When I stumbled upon this series, I found it refreshing to see this playful take on the good old alphabet. Bon Appetite.
When people observe art, the try to find a purpose, a message behind the whole thing. In many art pieces, the message may not be obvious or clear. Within the work by Ripo Visuals, their clear, easy-to-read, simplistic messages are powerful. Catchy, funny, truthful, clever phrases have been left on buildings all over Europe and South America.

If you remember, Alex Trochut was first featured in Issue: T of Beautiful/Decay with both an in-depth interview as well as an amazing cover graphic. (You can still get a copy here!) Since our interview, Alex’s career has exploded with interviews across the globe in some of the best art and design publications! Watch the video and see why he is one of the most interesting and most sought after typographers and illustrators in the last decade.
Ben Skinner, a Vancouver based artist, has a knack for presenting ideas and phrases in the most visually relevant, and witty way. The “I got your back” dominoes kills me, so clever!
A man of many talents, Craig Redman is a New York based illustrator, typographer, pattern artist, installation artist, sculptor, animator, designer, and art director. A list worthy of comparison would be his equally long list of well-known clients, such as, MTV, Louis Vuitton, Nike, Apple, Vogue, Converse, and The New York Times. And this may be overkill, but Craig not only has exhibited in various parts of the world, but he also exhibited at the Louvre, Paris (every artist’s dream!)
While we have many reasons to envy Craig Redman, we can also take solace in the fact that all of his accomplishments are well deserved. Craig’s diverse talents are immediately visible in his vibrant, smart, and secretly optimistic work.
Staples: usually a necessary evil based on time constraints or lack of paper clips. Who knew they could look this good? An illustrator and type designer, Alex Robbins was obviously listening when we were urged him not to ignore the negative space. His ability to transform mundane materials– be it finishing nails or fingerprints– into delicate, blooming bits of information always leaves me wanting more.
