God’s Fingerprints

God’s Fingerprints

Found these interesting little graphic studies recently featuring various bible verses. They’re from godsfingerprints.net, but the best place to see them all is on the associated Tumblr site. I think it’s a collaboration, and although they rely fairly heavily on current typography trends and image treatments, I still like them. It’s really just nice seeing these verses represented in such beautiful visual context. Think we can quite possibly find some inspiration there for the work we do for Scripture Union, a handful of Baptist organisations and UnitingWorld.

Vintage thread spools

Vintage thread spools

Just thought I’ll put together a little collection of vintage thread spools to share. I love the way that each of these labels is its own resolved circular design. The bygone typefaces and flourishes make me so curious. I feel sure that there will be an opportunity to reference these little beauties in a new design one day soon…

Pantone Tarts by Emilie de Griottes

For all lovers of food and colour swatches, these Pantone Tarts were developed by French “food designer” Emilie de Griottes. What a quirky, tasty idea, and a nice reminder that some of the best colour inspiration can be found in the fridge!

Who out there isn’t completely in love with and addicted to the latest online image pinning craze: Pinterest?! It’s so easy to collect, organise and share inspiration, and on such a lovely, friendly platform. Check out Claire’s Pinterest collection here, or Chantel’s here. Stay tuned for the rest of the Boheemian’s accounts!

This is so beautiful, I just had to share it. Calligraffiti artist, Niels Shoe Meulman, takes to the street with a mere broom, bucket of water and pure talent. Looove it!

Sweet little collection of old sweets packaging. Just because. Aren’t they pretty?!

Monteith’s Beer packaging

Monteith’s Beer packaging

Would I buy a product just because of its beautiful packaging? Absa-bloody-lutely I would! The Monteiths range is simple, classic and communicates so well the personality of each flavour, whilst maintaining a clear visual system which shows how the various bottles all belong to the one family. A brand I’m very happy to devote to, luckily the beverages are delicious! Snaps to you, Designworks of New Zealand.

Have taken an interest in stylised bird illustrations ever since drawing the creatures in the trees on the St John wall. This picture f-f-f-found at FFFFOUND!

Think I’d like to see this film. I don’t think this is the official poster, but it’s nice eh? Check out the trailer on youtube.

Periodic Table of Typefaces

This is typography nerdism at its absolute finest. Click on the image if you’d like a larger version. Unfortunately I can’t find the name of the designer, who I’d love to credit. But well done, whoever you are! Although, is that Gill Sans I see in the heading? Can we just forget that font was every invented please??!
