Jobs (Official Trailer)

This movie looks like it’ll be way better than I initially thought. I’m going to try my best not to dwell too much on the who Ashton thing. I know people don’t like him, but I’m going to hope he can impress me like he did in The Butterfly Effect.

I’m kind of curious as to what will be better, this or “The Facebook Movie” aka The Social Network. I think it’s really awesome to have movies like this that give us insight into the lives of people who have achieved great accomplishments, but also to see the way that start-ups evolve.┬áPeople like Jobs, Zuckerburg and even Bill Gates don’t become rich overnight. I find their journeys extremely interesting and inspiring.

I’m also most excited for the “nobody cares about typography” part. Well- I DO! I want to see how much emphasis they put on that issue. Not only did Jobs revolutionize the personal computer and the interfaces of the technology we use, but he also had a crazy impact on the typography we now know and love. Pretty cool if you ask me.

Mad Men Typography

Mad Men Typography

Another Mad Men post- yay!

I was doing some research and happened to come across a typography post on marksimonson.com all about the type used in Mad Men. It revolves around the historical accuracy of the typefaces and design used in the era of the show. When learning things, I love learning them in relation to Mad Men, and I definitely discovered a few new cool facts about the small details most people would never notice. I enjoyed it, you might too.

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.
