handmadefonts and their awesome typefaces produce their own unique typefaces using specifically photographed and then digitally re-funked pictures to make letterforms the result is some very original type although the sets as with a lot of fonts cost a fair bit at about 250 euros for 10 typefaces.

Lego for adult situations

This series of images I thought were quite an inventive use of lego, I like how it looks pixelated and gives a censorship kind of feel, however I was unable to find any details about the artist or how exactly it was done, i.e. with real lego or not.
still pretty cool, you can see the full set of images here

More really cool projection mapping

New balance sneaker Projection mapping_01 from Hayoung Jung

Here is another example of projection mapping, this time on a trainer, this is more utilised for a specific marketing purpose whereas the other one was just more of a cool tech demo type thing, but this shows the potential marketing value for such a technique, although I think it could be used best at a rave or nightclub type thing, a similar thing was done a matter nightclub before it closed down last year, unfortunately I can't find the video, but it was frickin' awesome.

Graffiti vending machines!

These pictures and a sparse amount of info about these graffiti vending machines have appeared on the internet. The machines, dubbed the Graffomat, are designed to supply all the late night spray fanatics with all the caps, cans, masks and even gloves any regular Banksy would love. There is speculation if they would actually be put in place. But there is a nine minute infomercial style video being used to advertise the product.

Jared Nickerson Wall coverings

These new wall coverings by my favourite vector Artist, Jared Nickerson are now available to buy and If only I had about £230 to spare I would definitely get one, they are produced by an Australian company called IMGS and are basically just very expensive wallpaper, but still wallpaper I would gladly buy, If I was rich, and had a house with enough wall space. His vector work alone is very impressive and I think he's a good example of looking for maximum amount of ways to make money of his designs, having adapted them into many different formats all available for purchase.
