Just Breathe is a gorgeous piece by Parisian designer Mario De Meyer for the Memodarium calendar project. I like this piece because of the contrast and balance. It looks amazing in one color and full color. The message is what really makes it powerful for me and reminds me of a time these simple words made a co-worker's day.
This comprehensive style guide for NASA is beautifully designed. The classic NASA worm is iconic and this photo set shows off it's flexibility and sets the design standards for the agency.
CoSchedule has a cool headline analyzer tool for content creators. This blog post was originally called "Creating Powerful Headlines" which receives an whopping 33%. Disappointing and clearly I should be able to do better.
I love this lettered quote by Reddit user hojumoju. Their handwriting and formal lettering is perfectly framed with the simple gold border. The white on black makes it especially striking.
This lettering for Park Hill Colorado by Adam Vicarel is gorgeous. I always enjoy seeing in progress work and this one is especially nice. The variety of line weights and letters help it easy to read and include a lot of information in a relatively compact space.
When I'm doing print work, my number one font choice is Garamond. I find it easy to read and I probably have 20 different variations of it on my computer.

I'm a huge fan of fancy capital letters and The British Library has this amazing collection in their archives. This is a miniscule selection of almost 9 full pages of gorgeous historiated initials.
Eventually, by Ricardo Ponce – otherwise known as CARGONEBLINA, is a stunning, stippled masterpiece with a tongue-in-cheek reminder that we are are mortal: "You will die" large and up front with "– I mean, eventually." added like an afternote. The whimsical words are countered by the immaculate dots creating a pleasing 3D effect.
