The Blogcademy is Stamp Crazy!

The Blogcademy Rubber Stamps

Over at the Blogcademy, I’ve been working on getting the rest of our branded collateral together. Pulling directly from our Identity Guide, I took some of our favorite elements and had them made into rubber stamps.

As I mentioned earlier in the year, I am a HUGE fan of rubber stamps because they’re an extremely affordable way to add that extra special touch to all your business basics like envelopes, on the outside of packages, on letters, on the backside of postcards and more.

As I work through the rest of our business collateral, I’ll be sharing more sneak peeks in the hopes of giving you some fun, accessible branding ideas of your own. And in case you’re wondering, I order all my stamps through Simon’s Stamps. Speedy service, great rates and old school wooden handles make them the best around, hands down.

The Typofiles #114: Elle September 2012

Typofiles Elle September 2012 Katy Perry

When the bulging September issue of Elle showed up in my mailbox a few days ago, I couldn’t stop staring at the cover. All that angled type felt so fresh and so now.

Angled type has always been an Elle trademark but they really took it to the next level here. And throughout the issue, the type and layouts have all been amplified — I’ve been a faithful subscriber for years and there’s just something really special about their attention to detail that other fashion magazines often miss. I have huge respect for Creative Director Joe Zee, Design Director Paul Ritter and the rest of the design staff. Putting together a kick-ass 600+ page issue is no easy task!
