A Sequence of Lines by Clement Valla
A Sequence of Lines Consecutively Traced by Five Hundred Individuals is an online drawing tool that lets users do just one thing - trace a line. Each new user only sees the latest line drawn, and can therefore only trace this latest imperfect copy. As the line is reproduced over and over, it changes and evolves - kinks, trembling motions and errors are exaggerated through the process.
Conditional design, anyone?
"A project based on the term "psycho-geography", defined by [situationist] Guy Debord as “the study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behavior of individuals.” I related this term to spatial, location-based memory and the ability to store information on mental maps.”
As a former neuro-psychologist I still am a sucker for anything on memory and brainy things. I love the graphics and I think it suits the subject matter very well. Memory, how it is stored and how situations and places are linked together. Dayna dove deeper into memory research and went on and graduated with this extensive research project on memory which was also nothing less than graphic candy for the eye.
I’m sure she’ll update soon and show you what I’m talking about. In the meantime check out the rest of her portfolio, good stuff.
Nice collection of vintage typography on typehunting.com. I like the way they’re photographed, like the person is really hunting.
Man oh man, this is just pure pleasure! This is what I call graphic porn in it’s purest form: 448 pages of candy for the eyes. Can’t wait to get my hands on this!
Sketchbook - Hansje van Halem, an overview of 10 years of type and pattern drawings:
hard cover, linen bound
Published by Uitgeverij de Buitenkant
For assignments as well as personal research, Hansje draws letters and patterns. This book is a compilation of self generated, commissioned, applied, rejected and unfinished sketches, type drawings, experiments, patterns and failures made between 2003 and 2013.
Published by my favourite publisher Uitgeverij de Buitenkant, they know, THEY KNOW how to make a book. This awesome publication also commemorates her ten year anniversary as an independent graphic designer. Go Hansje!

In the meantime… I have this in my hands RIGHT NOW. And it is EVERYTHING I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE AND MORE. Just AWESOME. Best buy this year, no doubt!
How can you collaborate more with others? What dreams and projects would be better if they were shared? Why is it difficult to collaborate? Why is it worth it?
Great work by Lilly Lulay, very graphic design esque photography. I love the presentation of the cut-out photgraphies in United Colours of Venice.
And also, also this!
