Homeless Fonts

An incredibly powerful combination of typography and a cause, takes the handwriting of the homeless and turns them into typefaces. These typefaces are then sold to support the Arrels Foundation, who is working on getting people off the street. The symbolism of the personal hand drawn street begging signs turned into an actual source of real aid is quite incredible. I'm still wrapping my head around it.

Site Design:

// re-blogged from Range

I had the great pleasure of working with Scott Berkun on his personal branding and website design. He wanted a clean modern look so we went with all white, the most awesome font Atrament Web, and colors that pop just like the cover of his famous book Mindfire. I love projects that end up being typographical based that really let the content shine. Screenshots below: or just visit

Vintage Motorcycle Typography

I had the neat experience of going to the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum here in Birmingham, Alabama. I wasn't expecting that I would like the museum as much as I did. The collection of vintage typography on the beautifully crafted motorcycles were just stunning. I also really enjoyed some of the old pressed metal work and emblems. Here are some photos of the vintage type.
