I blog about typography. None of these works are mine. These are my favourites creations on Tumblr.

Here Be Monsters

I noticed this wonderful Icelandic project of illustrated type inspired by medieval maps featuring fantastical sea creatures. 

Design by Reykjavík based Stella Björg, these decorated capitals remind me of the Victorian illustrations I’ve written about recently. I love that several of the creatures appear to be based on specific Icelandic mythical beasts, as named at the bottom of the print. I also really like the print colours and flecked paper that gives the final work its antique look.

My “Here Be Monsters” illustrated letters started from the simple idea of writing “MONSTER” but having finished it just didn’t seem like there was much left to complete the alphabet. I was in no hurry to complete it, so very slowly monstrous letters got added and finally there appeared a complete alphabet. - Stella Björg

Area Four Restaurant

Area Four, a favorite fresh local eatery in Boston, known for pizzas and whiskey was expanding its offerings into a food truck and second more casual location. To celebrate the owner’s history as a producer at Def Jam records and the chef-owner’s love of punk rock music, I turned to favorite song lyrics and old sign painters manuals highlighting the no-fuss nature of the food.

All too familiar! 

Bristol-based designer and creative director Jonathan Quintin of STUDIOJQ has embarked on a self-initiated project where he turned the hilarious things that some of his clients have said into colorful posters.
