measuring stick, advertising creative tends to have more "fun" than straight up design firm design. This design firm
(pentagram) driven piece has some fun without detracting from the message.

This is one of my favorite things every week to look forward to in New York magazine. Simply designed, detailed and well-executed. It is what works so well in print and I could only imagine how cool an interactive version of this would be online with slideshows, video, audio, etc...
OK Architects named in top 10 by Fast Company magazine
Olson Kundig Architects
Shortening its name from Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects in January reflects the firm's approach to architecture: keep it down-to-earth and sustainable. The Seattle-based firm received the AIA Architecture Firm Award from the American Institute of Architects in 2009 for a decade of work. Current projects include the offices for steel fabricator T Bailey Inc., which appropriately uses large pipes as architectural elements, and the Lightcatcher building for Bellingham, Washington's Whatcom Museum, a 180-foot-long building that captures sunlight and is the state's first LEED Silver building.
Top Fonts of 2009
Knockout – Probably my favorite of last year. I used it everywhere. It’s so versatile, and has so many weights, that I found it really helpful for many projects.
Din – One of my favorites of all time. I found myself using this in just about every infographic I had to create.
Miso – It’s free and comes in handy every once in a while. Found this one popping up in my freelance work a bunch.
Plantin – One of the sole serif representatives. I used this for just about every single time I had body copy. Thanks Monocle!
Futura – Had to include this after my Wes Anderson project. Didn’t use it a whole lot elsewhere, but I always check out how things look in Futura just in case. Especially for logos — Futura comes through in a pinch often.
Trade Gothic – Especially Bold No. 2. If I hear a cool word I don’t know, I will write it down so I can type it out in Trade later just to see how bad ass it looks.
