CGI + Sketch = Paperman

This short is a bit different from what we would typically post, but when I watched it I knew it just had to be shared.

This Disney short film, directed by John Kahrs is really the first of its kind. By using a new technology that allows animators to draw over top of CGI, ‘Paperman’

creates a blurred line between classic, drawn Disney animation & the digital animation we see most often today.

“Paperman” is nominated for Best Animated Short Film at this year’s Oscars.

Typeface Tuesday – Baby’s Breath

Tuesdays for 2013 will bring with them beautiful, odd & unique typefaces.

We are starting off today with Baby’s Breath by Keziah Chong.

“Baby’s Breath is a typeface formed with Gypsophila/Baby’s Breath. The meaning of Gypsophila is to miss, to adore, and to give. Gypsophila often serves a supporting role, but its existence is significant. This font should have a feeling of freshness, graciousness, and tenderness.”

The Story Behind ‘Keep Calm & Carry On’

Some of you may know the story behind this iconic poster, but I never had.
I thought it would be something worth sharing today. A bit of pop trivia for your Tuesday.
It actually has quite an interesting history. You might be surprised…

HANDmade Type

To say that designer Tien-Min Liao has created a unique alphabet doesn’t quite cut it. By painting shapes on her hands, she has made a complete set of letters, both upper and lowercase, including several italics. It isn’t, however, that easy.

She also gave herself a constraint to creating this set – the shapes drawn initally  on her arms had to be used to create her entire alphabet. Thats some pretty impressive hand coordination…

You can view her entire set on Behance.

Making of the Ampersand Balloon


The amperstand balloon by Conor & David. You may have seen it. This image has been floating around for awhile now. (see what I did there?) We just found, however, the ‘making of’ video. Not quite as easy as it looks…Hope you enjoy!
