Part 2. Sochi 2014 Team Uniforms.

We are 13 days until the Opening Ceremony of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games. Check out what are the rest of the world wearing for this important moment!

Part 1.

Make Love, Not War.

The Axe Superbowl ad is a must watch!

This time Axe has stepped away from presenting an ordinary man who attracts women by using axe. Or anyone who attempts to overcome lust. This time Axe only has one simple message: Make Love, Not War.

Beautiful visual with a very power message. This could be the best Superbowl ad this year!

16. Rolling Pen by Ale Paul

Tomas’ approach on the reveal of Rolling Pen is inspired on the enlightenment given by neon lights in the dark, through the power of words.
The neon lights were originally created to conceptually narrate over darkness. That’s why the collection has been coined "Underlight"; a way to represent light in neon form as the underliner of something important through light.

Best Fonts 2013

Since long time a good friend of us betype.co has made a great list of awesome fonts chosen by number of sales, notes, aesthetics and personal preferences. We love this list and recommend it to everyone love using extraordinary fonts for his project. At first 100 fonts seems to be to much, but in fact it was a year very active with many releases of fonts and new type foundries, at the end it was hard to decide just 100 fonts.

Fashion Spray

Antonio Brasko had the glorious idea of an intruiging project with fashion spray cans. Imagine what would happen if every brand has his own ci spray can. His motivation was to bring streetwear together with luxury. While many of the brands represented in the collection are high fashion brands, such as Chanel, Gucci and Hermes, he has also created spray cans based on the branding of famous sportswear labels like Supreme, Nike and Adidas. We like his idea and the way he combined street art with haute couture. 

Turkish Airlines has endorsed Messi and Kobe for few years now and their ads are getting better each time! The secret of these viral ads is “seeding”. The Turkish Airlines has released a sequel of videos of Kobe vs. Messi compaign and ask top Youtube influencers to promote them…is that the future of television and advertising?

But the light is swiftly fading,

And the wind is icy cold,

And a mist the moon is shading,

Pallid in the western gold;
In the night-winds still ye nod,
Sentinels of Nature’s God.

But the light is swiftly fading,

And the wind is icy cold,

And a mist the moon is shading,

Pallid in the western gold;
In the night-winds still ye nod,
Sentinels of Nature’s God.

It’s who we are, it’s what we do. We are Canada. We are Winter.

Helvetica and the New York City Subway System

Short before christmas we got this awesome book from MIT Press written by Paul Shaw. As we saw it in the internet, we liked the idea of making a book about the New York City Subway System. It’s astonishing how many designers and attempts it needed to find a good, direct informational font.

The first coherent transportation sign system was created in the 1960s by Colin Forbes for the Heathrow Airport. The result looked a lot like Helvetica. After that Bob Noorda, director of Pirelli, made an own modified version of Helvetica fitting to the Milano Metro. The font became popular even in other subway systems. In 1966 helvetica was offered for sale in New York City as foundry type, lynotype matrices, prototype and even transfer type. 


While NY has the Helvetica we still have the Rotis from Otl Aicher, like Montreal, Portland, Seattle and some places in Singapur or New Zealand. It’s a very functional but in the end not that perfectly shaped font like Helvetica, as we think. Therefore we like to visit NY, not only for sightseeing, but also for the New York City subway information system. The book gives you all the interesting informations about the use of helvetica in a public space and even in the most discussed process of our time.
