Here for your enlightenment: a ridiculous, accurately scaled graph; a typeface that's equal parts Futura and Proxima Nova; a collection of plagiarised and inspired derivative works; a sting operation exposing bad science journalism; and my gushing about my favourite design book. Enjoy.
Oops. October's been a whirlwind month. Between deadlines and a new team setup in the studio and lots and lots of days off for the Jewish festive season, my weekly link list has had to take a back seat. But here we are, back on the Observed wagon, with a bold type-driven identity, amazing wildlife photography, new music, old music origin tales, and Moby Dick as a Mole.
My observing this week has been curtailed by multiple deadlines, but I did come across a few noteworthy tidbits, from a graphic identity combining hand lettering with edge painted cards to designer crab homes, as well as my current favourite working soundtracks and two beautiful animated shorts.
In this week's edition, generative design, big data, *Alice in Wonderland* and money vs wealth, as well as a couple of beautiful graphic design projects.
