So my friend Pınar showed me a pretty good wallpaper website, and I am sure you’ll like it. The wallpapers are in good quality, and here are two I downloaded – I made Yotsuba-chan my wallpaper and Hatsune Miku my google background. (oh and yes, you can change your google page background by clicking on the text “Change background image” on the lower left of the page)
Here are some illustrations made by Cory Godbey about some fairy-folk tales. I like the style very much, and hope you enjoy it too. My faves are The Princess and the Dragon from The Four Clever Brothers and The Troll from the Three Billy Goats (which oddly was one of my favorite stories from preschool.)
Simon Garfield‘s lovely book, “Just my Type” tells the history of typography like a storybook, is quite accurate, includes much fun trivia and even has info about stuff like why comic sans became so popular. Made me stop disliking comic sans : )
I really do highly recommend reading this book even if you know everything in it. It’s a fun and very good read and the book design will make you proud to display on your shelf.
Check this out: making 3D texts, making an iPad display it slowly from the side, and shooting them in long exposure with a camera, by the group called Dentsu London. Not exactly what I would call genius, but a pretty damn good idea for light painting ^^ I love their concept and their name, “Making Future Magic“.
Here are some images that I think will be helpful of the VA 301 class to define the style of Bitpazarı, the second-hand/ handmade clothing and accessory shop.
More photos from Attic Vintage, which is very close to the image of Bitpazarı in my head:
Another vintage clothing store, peanutbreath, has a wide selection of vintage clothing too. I think this one is not bad, although the Attic has much more options. I like the clothing racks of peanutbreath though.
I really also liked retrostar, which is in Australia, just look at the store. Love the changing rooms.
So I guess these kinds of places have rows and rows of clothing in a large location where people have to thumb through for a long time to find something just for them. But this might be more attracting since most of the clothes are one of a kind.
