I am a fan of typography, especially modern style compositions heavily inspired by the International Style or Swiss style however as an admirer of all things type I have some infatuation with script fonts with ligatures. Because of that I will share some images I came upon that really intensify my platonic feelings for this style.
I realize this may very well be stale news to some but I really love the whole exercise behind the construction of the brand mascot for FireFox OS. I remember in early 2004-5 when Firefox had that beautiful icon designed by John Hicks. I had a t-shirt featuring that beloved logo that I wore pretty much everyday. Firefox was the exodus from the IE reign and seeing this revamp in the brand makes me so nostalgic.
So in this post I just want to share the sketches and the end result for the new FireFox OS brand mascots.
We have featured Bernhard Lang before on Abduzeedo about Aerial Photography and now he comes back with a series of Aerial Views from Adria, Italy. They are simply stunning, it feels like an endless field of pantone colours. Check it out!
