Kerning is one of those few things in graphic design that still takes a lot of practice. Now that every living designer on earth has an iphone (really?) you can practice your craft with this iphone app. Maybe someone will make an app that simulates the lost art of paste-ups.

I really love the work by Me and Mister Jones; husband-and-wife duo Tom Merckx and Fanny Khoo from Singapore. They sent us their link yesterday and it’s a pleasure to post them up.

Our friend Steven Harrington got in touch to let us know about his recent collaboration with Arkitip, designing a custom laptop sleeve and iPhone case. The video takes a peak at the gallery show and Steven’s studio/home.
