Italian Found Type


I’ve been away (again), this time type-spotting in the Italian Riviera. Lovely.

Jean-Luc Godard – Socialism (2010)


I somehow managed to return from the Cannes Film Festival in one piece – not a vintage year for films – but fun all the same. One bit of design that caught my eye this year was this little press book for the new Godard movie Socialism. We did a bit of work on the poster for the film last year, but this book was art directed by the great man himself. Knowingly understated, quite powerful in it’s simplicity – and arriving with a nice set of little badges! Only made to be given to buyers and press, so you’ll probably need to keep an eye on eBay if you’re after one of these.

Godard has also made a great trailer for the movie – the entire film sped up to 1min7secs. class.

Happy Easter


Happy Easter everyone.

I received this rather lovely egg from Mrs La Boca (it’s gone now though).



I’m being kept amused at moment by this little iPhone game Alphabetic. Not really great gameplay, but there’s just something lovely about colourful, rounded type flying about all over the place.

Throwie Rat vs Duck Mouse


Some nice creative taxidermy lessons over at Instructables. If you’re stuck indoors on a rainy Sunday afternoon here’s all you need to know to make your very own Throwie Rat or Duck Mouse. Thanks to the Cox-Dorée Institure.

Happy New Year!
