This blogger’s grandpa collected door hangers from hotels around the world. Lots of nice graphic design.
A nice little collection of poorly-considered tattoos over on the L magazine. The perfect foil to those 1990s hipster Chinese tattoos that probably translate as “I cannot read my tattoo”.
From someone in Beijing: “Mine simply says FRUNK. The letters are so beautiful and flow so smoothly into each other. The word actually means old soul with young spirit in English. How cool is that? :-)”
typeisart, billed as “an interactive exploration of the typographic form”, is a neat flash site that lets you make pictures from morsels of typography. I love that the “loading, please wait” animation is actually a demo of how to use the interface- efficient site design like that always wins me over.
