Has your instagram stream been inundated with Neutraface-laced images the past few days? If you’re wondering why, it’s because House Industries just launched an iPhone app. The new app allows users to create, edit and share photos with select House fonts and Photo-Lettering alphabets. Three fonts – Plinc Swiss, Bubble Gum and House Slant are included with the initial download. Additional fonts, including Neutraface, can be purchased for 99 cents. Download it for free at the iTunes store.
B/W we’re on Instagram now. yeah!
Greg Hubacek is a freelance designer and art director out of Los Angeles. His redesign of The Chronicle of Higher Education, a publication that delivers academic news in both physical and digital form, is straightforward and elegant while maintaining a sense of playfulness. By using grayscale images, Hubacek is able to use geometric shapes and bits of color for strategically placed emphasis.
Austin, Texas is a hotbed of design talent and Curtis Jinkins is one of our favorites to emerge from the scene. In this week’s poster pick, Curtis pays homage to home state with this bull print. Black and gold are prominently featured, which makes perfect sense given the history of this oil rich land. In the background, a blood red setting sun illuminates the derricks and windmills that dot the landscape.
This print as well as other works by Curtis are now available at the Poster Cabaret.

You will be working with a small group of talented designers, coordinating with the Project Manager to ensure the project stays within its budget and timelines, and presenting solutions to clients in a beautiful, open, dynamic studio. This is a fast paced and highly creative environment. A deep passion for paper and design as well as a willingness to learn new trends and techniques is essential.
I’m so impressed with the consistently impressive, type-driven book cover work of Jonathan Gray. Generally, his covers are predominantly typographic, but they don’t operate under a single, rehearsed style. There’s so much variety and life to his body of work; it’s amazing to see all of this coming from one person.
Meet Amber Asay, an up and coming BYU graduate whose designs consist of a combination of clean illustrations and elegant typography. Although her portfolio consists primarily of student work, Asay is currently working in Orlando, Florida as an intern with the Disney Design Group, and will undoubtedly continue to produce intriguing designs.
Early last year, we featured the Olle Eksell tribute site. Johan Anderson, the driving force behind the site, has just announced his latest project – a documentary on Olle’s life and work. The film plans to highlight Eksell’s contributions to Swedish design as well as generate international awareness for this underappreciated visionary. To achieve this, they are seeking additional funding to shoot and edit conversations with respected designers both within Sweden and abroad. If you would like to donate to this effort, please visit their fundraising page.
*Note: The fundraising amounts are in Swedish Krona. I believe if you use Paypal it will handle the conversion from Dollars/Pounds/Euros etc. to Krona for you.
