- Ken Barber is teaching script lettering and drawn lettering workshops at Cooper Union (NYC) this fall, and drew this lettering as a warm-up. “The letter style riffs off on an exaggerated 19th-century American ornamental penmanship hand, which was later popularized during the 1970s and 80s by legends like Tony DiSpigna and Tom Carnese.”

Without You We’d Never Know That …
- …nearly 120,000 pairs (60,000 pounds!!!) of pork sausages were consumed at Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany. Noah Pannucci designed this graphic for an Oktoberfest celebration at id29 in Troy, New York. “The small silhouettes reflect different aspects of Germany (some more specific than others), and add up to the same total weight.” Urp.
