Smoothicles: Typography + Video

Mango_Smoothicles

This series is fun, creative and not only beautifully shot, but also contains some beautiful overlaid typography from The Lost Type Co-Op. The videos were shot for Smoothicles, the website that shares some creative smoothie ideas that you can tun into popsicles. Perfect timing considering the weather is getting better day by day.

The way that the type is unique for every ingredient is really captivating and pleasing to the eye. It has a great flow and it tells the story really well. The combination of video and type in an instructional way really makes an impact. The video portion isn’t complicated either, which makes taking in both at the same time simple and fluid. I also find it much more compelling than most videos focused around type. I’m really looking forward to seeing more in this series.

Designer Wallpaper

I shared these with an art director/designer friend late last year and he loved them. If you are constantly using InDesign, Illustrator, Flash or Photoshop, they might come on handy for you too. And if they don’t I guess they’re just kinda cool to look at.

If you have one of the more recent versions of Mac’s Spaces (the ability to have different desktops), then you could definitely use all of them at once and or use a couple of them and still have room for personalized wallpapers. If you’re a beginner designer, use these as a learning tool too. Knowing tips, tricks, shortcuts or whatever you want to call them will definitely come in handy.

I’m not sure who actually created these, and I wish I could give them credit here. For all I know these are actually templates created by Adobe. If you’re any other type of designer or developer, I recommend checking [this] out for other really awesome wallpaper design tools.
