1. Reload Icons
Because of the necessary simplicity of icon design, the creation of icons can be difficult. Well at least for me! I love these icons designed for Reload: what a simple look that they creatively transformed for each section of the site. Such a creative concept that’s beautifully executed.

2. Typographic Matchmaking Poster
I don’t think I could sum up this project better than the For Print Only site does:
Remember that scene from Fiddler on the Roof when Tevye’s daughters long for the matchmaker to “Find me a find, catch me a catch”? Well, matching contrasting typefaces is almost as difficult as finding that special someone. When it works it seems effortless, like the two were meant for each other. Jim Godfrey created the Typographic Matchmaking poster out of a desire to share with others some type combinations that work well together. To make it interesting, he thought it would be fun to highlight famous combinations from history, literature and life such as Romeo and Juliet, Sonny & Cher, Jack and Jill and even peanut butter and jelly.
Not only is this a creative design and concept, it’s a great reference for examples of paired typefaces.
3. Brent Couchman’s Fossil Tags
Awesome color combination of golden yellow, brown, with teal blue accents. Brent Couchman’s designs are always superb, of course, but this a favorite for sure. Found via designworklife.
