1. Texas Monthly, Jon Contino
I love when the different sections in life spill over into one another, in particular when the husband’s BBQ world collides with my design world. So when I saw this post by the wonderful letterer and design, Jon Contino, for Texas Monthly I just knew I had to share it with you all. From the saucy titles on the cover to the handdrawn map of southern BBQ—there’s truly some amazing work to see plus a video on the “painting with BBQ sauce” process. Check out more photos from the magazine on Jon’s site.
2. Starbucks Coffee Perfection
Can you even fathom the man hours to create such a promotion? Cutting all the smallest of pieces of paper, manipulating the characters on the screen in between each take, but the joy and gratification of seeing the final product must totally outweigh all of that! What a beautiful work of art! Here is the finished commercial, be sure to check out the behind the scenes work from Rogier Wieland on Design Work Life.
3. Easy, Tiger Cards
Another post from Design Work Life… a greeting card vending machine!
Is it just me, or does anyone else think the way they insert the Specials so inventive? I love it! Found via Art of the Menu.
5. American Presidential Wrestling
Maybe I would be more interested in politics if they truly did wrestle! Found via Vintage Me Oh My.
