I like beer and I like typography so Jared Jacob's brewery logos are right up my alley. The Texas Trail Brewing Co. reminds me of my childhood memories of living in Texas and my father's family's Southern roots. But, my favorite of the bunch has to be the March Hare Brewing logo with it's nod to the Alice and Wonderland namesake.
Last year Google announced they would be using HTTPS as a ranking signal with the implication that it would be considered heavier in the future. Well, the future is now! Yesterday Google has taken the next step in security and will now index HTTPS pages over their HTTP counterparts, even if those pages aren't directly linked.
The British Library is a huge leader in sharing their archives with the public. I have featured work from this collection on this blog a few times. See the list of great photo resources here, this amazing Armstrong Photo Engraving Ad, and these gorgeous illustrated letters. This huge collection of vintage advertisements is amazing. Here are just a few images from this outstanding set.
How Joyful is the place where optimistic quotes are beautifully hand-lettered by Joy Kelly. Her shop is filled with bright, cheerful products. I especially like her Instagram feed for behind the scenes photos like this. I thought it was an especially nice one for this week because Dave and I celebrate 21 years together today!
Blake Stephens, the designer behind Jetpacks and Rollerskates, is the man behind one of my favorite Instagram feeds. His drawings are whimsical, filled with skulls and octopii, and his lettering is inspired.
I really like the clean, but distinctive hand lettering on this promo piece by Jorgen Grotdal. He has a few fonts for sell over on his Sellfy page which definitely have this same style.
Mats Ottdal is a talented designer with a distinct style that works well across a wide range of lettering and illustration projects. My favorites are when he uses his groovy 60s/70s lettering.
