Here’s wishing you a fun Halloween! Daryle and I are having a small gathering of friends over tonight. I’m cooking up a scary storm of hors d’oeuvres like Lady’s Fingers & Men’s Toes and a Rest in Peas dip from Martha Stewart. That little pumpkin above is the only one that grew from the four pumpkin plants I planted. The sacred pumpkin! Isn’t he sweeet?

Here’s the invite that I created for our gathering tonight. There’s an awesome font suite from House Industries called Monster Fonts which I used to make the invite. I was trying to make the infamous Janet Leigh scream look extra retro, with a faux-silkscreen effect and then added the classic scary-movie font next to it.

Now, back to my Devilish Eggs. Have fun today!

37 Posters is a project by designer, Jerod Gibson who started a series of posters with a silhouette of an image from a movie or television show and then filled it with quotes. What a fun way to nerd-out to your favorite flicks. Check out more of Gibson’s work here.

These Blue Note inspired posters with groovy backgrounds are pretty fab too.

Love Your Bike Portsmouth

I’m a jerk for not posting this sooner. This post has only been sitting in an open tab on my computer for the last 10 days . Errr..!

Love Your Bike Portsmouth was an event for bike-enthusiasts to explore ways to improve bike design of their bikes and its appearance, mixed with an aim to regain the streets for riding. On the day of the event, there were tons of cool demos on bamboo, electric, build your own, and fixed gear bikes; information on bike locks that really work, a photo exhibition on vintage bikes, and crazy bike sculptures. Wish I was there! And who might be the genius behind the branding of this event? Why its ILoveDust, the UK creative shop that never ceases to impress me. Here, they’ve designed a suite of items including posters, swag, and a website for the Love Your Bike event. The typography is impeccable mixed images of indie rock cyclists on top of the flesh-toned poster paper. Check out the Love Your Bike Portsmouth blog to see pics from the event. I took a liking to the three dudes below.

For my DJs and vinyl nerds: Soundscreen Design has released it’s fourth edition of the Vinyl is Forever graphic. This time the graphic is designed by Justin Thomas Kay, director at FADAR magazine. In addition to hoodies, they also offer t-shirts in black or white, and tote bags. It’s a limited addition graphic printed on organic cotton (American Apparel). I’m ordering one for my special record-loving geek.
