Link Surfing

Fun typographic design sites lead to other design sites. Just some link surfing that I did today.

Words are Pictures: Love this site. Craig Ward uses his illustrative skills to come up with some of the most interesting typographic designs that I have seen. You have to see his portfolio.

Alison Carmichael: She seems to specialize in hand lettering, and nice handiwork it is.

Si Scott Studio: Don’t really like the site navigation, but I like this guys ink.

And finally we end with a big blinking eye at HideYourToys.net, which seems to me to be what the end of the internet would look like.
