Big Ideas from a Small World

What to get for the AD that has everything.

Did your art director just have a birthday you forgot about? Maybe you have both been working so hard you never got a chance to get a present…

If so, then give him the gift that keeps on giving.


In Hand Job: A Catalog of Type, the author explains the meaningful yet flawed nature of hand-drawn type: “It reveals the hand of the maker, and its viewer finds comfort in that: the artist illustrated by lines made crooked from too many cups of coffee.” This colorful book is alive with submissions from artists who feature compelling talents, perspectives, and backgrounds. In a world where technology is paradoxically making everything more real and less human, it’s uplifting to experience this compilation of hand-drawn typography. This is the book for anyone who appreciates graphic design and values uniqueness. – Via Brandchannel

Oh there is an art director joke in here, but I’m gonna let it slide.
