Our friends at The Mixtape Club kindly asked us to donate a mix (with album art) to their current 005 session. For those who don’t know, The Mixtape Club is “an organization dedicated to the art of the mixtape. Ten people, ten tracks, ten album covers,” with a new set released each month.
The current line-up is great. My favorite (right now) is Becky Hui Chan’s tape, Saving It For A Rainy Day – really fluid mix with beautifully synced transitions from track to track.
Kelsey Dake got in touch from L.A. – she’s an illustration student (soon to be graduate) from Art Center College of Design. Thanks for the link.
Had this little gem sitting in our inbox for a few days, which I’m just now uncovering. Jim Sutherland, from Hat-trick Design, has designed a set of typographic playing cards. It was a personal project with the basic guidelines being: design a full set of playing cards (52 + jokers and a cover) using no repeated typefaces and no alteration of typefaces – which, in his words, “made it hard but very rewarding. It was like solving 54 micro design problems.”
All 54 cards fit conveniently on a B1 sheet of paper, therefore making it ideal for printing a poster (shown above – top). If you are interested in getting your hands on either the cards or the poster you can reach them at allison [at] hat-trickdesign.co.uk.
