Here are three awesome things I found on the interwebs today.

The United States of Good Beer is an infographic of sorts that shows each states’ favorite brewery. This combines two of my favorite things: well designed infographics and great local beer! Living in Bloomington, IN, I have the pleasure of being able to drink Upland whenever my heart desires.

 

I stumbled to this photo of a bookshelf nook and immediately fell in love. One dream I have for my future home is a fully-stocked library, and the only thing that could make it better would be an architecturally awesome reading nook, like the one below. I can just imagine getting cozy with a cup of green tea and and a design book.

This wrapping paper is fantastic. It’s creative and can be used for anything. Personally, I like to wrap things in newspaper (reduce, reuse, recycle!), but I still think this is awesome. I think Christmas and Birthday paper can get really cheesy, but give me anything covered in type and I’ll automatically love it. Unless that type is Comic Sans.

I’ve started a second blog, where I’ll post inspiration, images and work that I want to share with other creatives (and anyone else!). This will be separate from my personal blog (this one), where I’ll continue to post about my own projects and things I’m working on.

This new blog is called The Amperstache. The name is based on my obsession with both ampersands and mustaches. I’ll post about design, photography, art, fashion, typography, and any other projects I find inspirational!

Like many typography lovers out there, I have an obsession with ampersands. The ampersand to me is the most unique, beautiful, and variable character of any typeface. I love using it as a design element in addition to is traditional use to represent “and.” So, here are all the ampersand things I’ve been drooling over lately.

 

I’m sure I’ll be posting more ampersand things in the future. Oh, and I also love semicolons.
