Right now, Game of Thrones is something I’m seriously geeking out about (well besides typefaces and my new obsession – roller skate wheels). I do realise I’m a little late to this party, but I am making up for it by devouring my way through the books. I’m currently unable to put down book three, and I am beyond excited for season three of the TV show to start. If you haven’t read it, I implore you to start, it’s a fascinating story and utterly addictive. I love how a great story and superb characters capture people’s imaginations to create awesomeness, like so…

Have you seen this? Fantastic project from New York based Graphic Designer and Illustrator, Lauren Hom - check out her work, I have severe portfolio envy.
I love these prints, and how they blatantly and beautifully showcase the fibs we tell ourselves, and what better way to face up to our little white lies than to have them hand lettered, screenprinted and on display for all to see? It’s almost like being honest with ourselves…
My favourite is the first one, I say that ALL the time.

One of my favourite finds of the past few years is The Lost Type Coop. Beautifully crafted typefaces with an innovative pay what you like model. These guys – Ten Dollar Fonts – are doing a similar thing, but with all fonts priced at $10. This is a great place to look if you’re after a punchy display typeface, the range is wonderful; modern to retro, to abstract to classic – and ten bucks is ridiculously reasonable. Right now I’m liking the pictogram feel of these beauties. The A in Simon Sans reminds me of the sign outside St Pancras.
All available from Ten Dollar Fonts. They just released a discount code too – enter 20SHARES at the checkout to receive a whopping 50% off (limit 2 fonts per customer).
