Short, simple, and effective. Produced by Bermuda Shorts and, I'm guessing creativity was by W+K London as it's for the Guardian.

PhotoShelter



Don't know which image bank you guys use, but if you're like most people, you'll probably use Getty or Corbis. I was contacted this afternoon by PhotoShelter, an image bank which prides its self from paying a fairer share of the profit to the photographers. Not wanting to enter any image banks wars, and just giving you another option, if you're thinking of selling your photos to an image bank, you might be interested in reading PhotoShelters' CEO Allen Murabayashi statement here. It is an interesting read.

Fifty Designers' Current Favourite Typefaces



Fantastic project by designer/art director James West, with all the money raised from the book going to UNICEF. So far he has made £6000 (€7538 / USD11841) for cyclone victims of Myanmar (Burma). You can donate directly, if you wish, here.

Unfortunately the book is now sold out, but you never know, maybe some more will be produced? I would buy one.

Jung von Matt at Berghs School of Communication



Just the name Jung von Matt should be enough for any advertising student to be interested in applying for a placement, however Jung Von Matt still decided on doing a very good guerrilla campaign to entice the students at Berghs School of Communication in Sweden.
