In July 2017, I attended an exhibit in Quebec City about Hergé and his art, especially TinTin (of course).

Really enjoyed seeing the inspiration photos, letterhead from his business communications, reference sketch items, various notebooks, satchels and pre-press proofs – evidence of a few of which  are included for your amusement.

Hockey NW and Canucks Outsider design archive

In preparation for the 2009-10 season – the 12 for HockeyNW and 5 for Canucks Outsider, i tool a step back to assemble an archive of HockeyNW web interfaces and plans since 1998 (also see HockeyNW & CanucksOutsider on Flickr for more).

Some are screenshot from Archive.org’s Way Back Machine and others are scavenged from my disorganized trove of stuff. Some are annotated, some are not. Some related inspirational items and links along the way as well. There are a few other version missing in action which i’ll add for posterity when possible.

Exceptionally Useful Free Handwritten Fonts | tripwire magazine

Should Handwritten Fonts be used in web design? For quite some time companies and governments have been working hard to make daily life things available as digital services in whatever way possible to speed processes up and cut costs.

At the same time most communication takes place on digital channels by sending emails, chatting, electronic orders, paying online, doing banking online…well almost anything goes on the line today.
