Experimental typography by Ruslan Khasanov. Why fuss over serifs and fancy ligatures when you have lenses and light. The appropriate descriptive here is ‘organic’. Yeh, let’s go with organic.
I seem to have bought all of these items separately, but I don’t yet own the manual. Probably explains my exclusion from the hipster fraternity.
Is that your haus? That’s a nice haus.

Mixtapes; I love them. Let me re-phrase that; I love good mixtapes.
The Mixtape Club is a website dedicated to “the art of the mixtape”. Each contributor is asked for his or her favourite album and album artwork. Each month features ten people, with ten tracks and ten album covers.
The site is stocked with great music and design. Needless to say I’ve now become a regular visitor.
If you follow our rag-tag twenty%extra fleet, you’ll know that we’ve recently relaunched LBB. To commemorate that launch, we’re running The Art of Winning Poster campaign with Boxpark Shoreditch. Want to know more? Well keep on reading.
POSTER DESIGN COMPETITION | THE BRIEF
The art of winning isn’t a board game or a game show. It’s not reality TV. It’s something you have to make a reality.
This summer at the London 2012 Summer Olympics, athletes from around the globe will be competing for medals, but for the rest of us, medals are not the reward. The reward is knowing we’ve got the best out of ourselves through years of hard work, dedication and more hard work. Winning feels good but it doesn’t come easy.
From personal happiness to leaving a genuine personal legacy; life’s potential list of achievements are too many to surmise.
Taking inspiration from The Olympics coming to LDN, LBB and Boxpark Shoreditch will be featuring 14 of the best poster designs that showcase what the ‘art of winning’ looks like.
And that is where you come in. We’re looking for 14 creative superstars to show us exactly what ‘winning’ means to you.
The winning poster designs will be exhibited at Boxpark in London throughout July + LBB goodie bags + a framed copy of your design.

If you’re a young designer looking to market yourself, find new ways to market others. Dave Spengeler does just that as he holds up a mirror to the artsy community with this exercise in rebranding irony.
