Ten Dollar Fonts. That pretty much sums everything up nicely. Except that every font you purchase enter you into a drawing to win your money back, and that each time you buy you get an automatic promo code for your next visit. There’s only a smallish selection right now, but they look to be adding new fonts all the time so buy away!

Fire meets ice in Shift Space Design’s Funston. Flip one way to use as an ice chest, turn it on its head to use as a grill. There’s even a bottle opener on the side. All bases covered! (via Tastologie)
Pino is a lifestyle shop I’d definitely walk into and explore. The cool minimalism and color organization would suck me in immediately. Their identity kills it, I love the bold palette and diecut ‘I’ to no end.

Being a designer is one thing, taking what you’ve created on screen and successfully translating it to print is another. There are so many rules and regulations (and opinions) that it can sometimes be overwhelming to remember it all. I love that A Print Handbook For Designers puts all of these little bits and pieces in one place, in fact I think it’s the best reference source of this type that I’ve seen in nine years of designing. It only costs about $10 which includes delivery, so if you’re a designer you really have no excuse left to not have your production spot on every single time. (via notcot)
