DBA Pens

I had this video running at different times on two different pages and the lady’s voice started to mess with my mind. Makes for a good time if you’re bored. I’ve been wondering lately if such a thing as this -a ‘green’ pen- exists, and then stumbled upon this video in the midst of some blog-hopping. I love infographics, and thought these were pretty super neat. Also the logo is quite smashing. (I apologize for the poor linking job on the video, there was a lot of yelling at the computer, wasted time, and so this is the best I could do).

Boarding Pass Makeover

So when I first began my blog I had a few requests to post something about type when I was blogging more frequently. First of all, this meant someone else other than myself was reading my blog which even now puts a big ole smile on my face. Well I’m hoping I’ll have a bit more time to keep this thing going on the regular, so I thought I’d turn the page by fulfilling these requests. And here goes…

Tyler Thompson did a real stellar job of updating the Delta Airlines boarding pass, amazing how good type can transform an image. He describes his rationale quite well if you’re interested.

Birds rock out too.

If you can, hang in there til the solo.
