Type Worship Colourful messages transform the winding favela streets Earlier this year Boa Mistura, an urban art collective formed in Madrid, worked on a vibrant community project near São Paulo, Brazil The collective worked with the children and other residents of Brasilândia Vila, a poor suburb on the outskirts of São Paulo, to fill the narrow streets with colour and words: beleza, amor, doçura, firmeza and orgulho (beauty, love, sweetness, firmness and pride). These one-point perspective messages are carefully painted to reveal themselves to passers-by as they reach a certain part of the the street. The smiles of the participants clearly say it all. I Like It.
Worthe Numerals Worthe Numerals come out of a time-tested development cycle where House Industries employees ask “What if this could be just a little more...”. After pushing traditional didot forms to the limit, these digits were originally applied to a set of wood blocks. But, who says replenishable Michigan-grown basswood should have all the fun? So we added everything one needs to stylishly set their current currency and credit default swap hedges, while also being able to set the appropriate fractional take from their blog’s micropayment structure.

Introducing... The seriously minimal graphic design of Icelandic studio GUNMAD Introducing… The desk of GUNMAD GUNMAD is Guðmundur Ingi Úlfarsson and Mads Freund Brunse, one Icelandic and one Danish graphic designer working together between Rekjavík and London. Stylistically these guys are at the very edge of minimal, striving for typographic purity and structural perfection, with no white space disturbed by imagery or text unless absolutely necessary. They’re also incredibly experimental, channeling an enormous amount of energy into research in a manner that’s rarely seen outside of academic institutions. The walls of their studio are thick with typographic sketches, slices of inspirational imagery and any other snippets of visual paraphernalia that might expand the scope of their practice. Like their work, Guðmundur and Mads are sparing with their words, but their answers below reveal some fascinating truths about designers working in the digital age.
