I seem to have sadly neglected this blog for the last month or two. Personal projects and my day job took the driver’s seat in my design life, but I’m ready to start posting again!
Lately I have been working a lot on letterpress projects. Here are some photos of some typesetting on press! If you live in NYC and would like to try your hand at some letterpress work, check out The Arm in Brooklyn!
I am convinced that there is nothing in the world that compares to pulling a fresh print off a press.

While not all of Detroit is characterized by urban decay, it has always been an attribute that I visually enjoy. [via Google Maps]
The Times has created an impressive infographic visualizing the modern Olympic results, in three events, during the 116 year history of the modern games. Visualized are the long jump, the 100m swimming freestyle, and the 100m dash. Each chart shows where past Olympians would stand at the time of the top competitors finish.
It is fascinating to see how much better, faster, and more determined we have become. Some of these accelerated results may stem from pure human achievement, and some may stem from advances in technology and evolution of the game in question, but whatever the reason these graphs are a reminder of the greatness we can achieve. All in all, it is a wonderful visualization.
