More type goodness from the guys & gals at House.
As one of the most distinguished lettering artists of the 20th century, Meyer “Dave” Davison’s greatest contribution to the American visual landscape is arguably Davison Spencerian. The alphabet made its first appearance in Photo-Lettering’s 1946 catalog and remains a benchmark of the ornamental script genre. Thanks to the skillful hands of Mitja Miklavčič and the tireless eyes of House Industries designers Ken Barber and Ben Kiel, we have preserved the poise and precision of Davison’s masterwork in this faithfully-rendered digital incarnation. From automotive exhaust accessories and pirate-themed wedding invites to New Orleans sissy bounce hip-hop CD covers and upmarket bivalve ambrosia packaging, Davison Spencerian offers sober sophistication and unparalleled flexibility. Also available at Photo-Lettering as asingle layer and with a drop shadow.

A friend turned me onto London based illustrator Sophie Alda’s work, and I immediately fell in love. The content of her work is so strange and exciting, especially when she juxtaposes architectural buildings with unusual figures. Her use of muted tints and shades of color are a nice touch, as well as the various abstract forms she creates. Definitely be on the lookout for this gal!

Ze Cardoso is a designer, illustrator and artist hailing from Oporto, Portugal. Recently graduated, Ze has a number of interesting self-initiated projects on his site. I really like the colors and personality in this stamp project, a collaborative effort for CTT, Portugal’s national postal service. They’re bold and playful, and would make sending letters much more enjoyable.
