The Windows of New York project is a weekly illustrated fix for an obsession that has increasingly grown in Jose Guizar since chance put him in this town. A product of countless steps of journey through the city streets, this is a collection of windows that somehow have caught Jose’s restless eye out from the never-ending buzz of the city. This project is part an ode to architecture and part a self-challenge to never stop looking up.
Fashion-Font has been created since 2007 by Paris based Korean designer Yvette Yang with her original view on typography and fashion. The concept “Image is message” is always maintained in her project which makes the work visually more attractive and meaningful. She uses collage method by hands as she would not want to estimate the form of typography and tries to explore the maximum chance to find beautiful matches coincidentally.

From September Industry: These images were previously seen in OK-RM’s portfolio (they designed these pieces at North prior to setting up OK-RM), but they were taken down a few years back to make way for new work and now, their new site (a proper feature will come soon).
Nevertheless, many of you who know North well will see these images a think to yourself: “legendary work, brings back good memories,” but many of you who are either new to SI and/or North will not be familiar with this work at all, and that is one of the reasons why I decided to go ahead with this new series in the first place – design this good needs to be appreciated by all, it shouldn’t stay locked away in a computer folder and admired by a select few.
From Deborah Frieze and Margaret Wheatley in Leader to Leader Journal: America loves a hero. So does the rest of the world. Perhaps it’s our desire to be saved, to not have to do the hard work, to rely on someone else to figure things out. Constantly we are barraged by politicians presenting themselves as heroes, the ones who will fix everything and make our problems go away. It’s a seductive image, an enticing promise. Somewhere there’s someone who will make it all better. Somewhere, there’s someone who’s visionary, inspiring, brilliant, and we’ll all happily follow along. Somewhere…. Why do we continue to hope for heroes?
