‘Coming soon’: konspiracy.co.uk, ‘the online design magazine for designers’. Those scribbly drawings remind me of lindkvist.com (whose fontshop is now open at last). Going back to konspiracy… that’s a great sample they use for music… anyone know what it is?
Never mind, I got an answer from Konspiracy within 15 minutes… it’s from Firewalk With Me, the Twin Peaks OST. Konspiracy are launching this week.
I told Firda this in e-mail, but I’m going to say it again here. Irish surnames can start with Mc/Mac too, or with O’… or Ui, or Ni, etc etc. Mac isn’t strictly Scottish. Mac is the gaelic word for ‘son’. Here’s some more info from the Focal an Lae (a word a day) page. … tá cupla focal an. Additionally, have a look at this All Irish clans and names site.
Note: spend some time at redhaus.com.
Digging deeper into Andy’s (of recent dblog fame) site I find his art work. Oh man, I wish I could draw, paint, sketch, etc. I think it’s a magic talent.
As usual, I have problems separating my on line identities, so to speak. At the moment, vodb.com (a.k.a. vodb.net / vonb.org) is just sitting there looking pretty while I pour my energy into prolific.org. vodb.com is supposed to be my digital businesscard. However, I have very little to businesscard about – as I’m not freelancing. Talking businesscards, it looks like I’m not getting one from NI, my new employers, cause I’m ‘level 2’ not ‘3’. Whatever. I’ll have my own made. Some day.
I picked this up from dblog: saulbass.co.uk a site in honour of graphic designer Saul Bass (whom I’d never heard of but am now interested in) with the kind of inobtrusive flash design that I like. You can download the ‘Hitchcock’ font there, but it’s only for Macs – anyone have a PC version? (good Hitchcock link)
From there I surfed over to Hillman-Curtis. I wish I could do flash. Flash like that. But I don’t think I understand motion. Hell, I don’t even understand non-motion.
re: dblog and judging sites by design… It could be good if it were just to point out interesting designs. I don’t like seeing Jish and Riothero, or anybody else for that matter, slammed. Stick to what you like, keep the dislikes to yourself. In a HighFive kind of way.
