Over the holiday, I took some time to pull together some of my more recent Curbside VW Micro Bus pics (36) and assembled them into a large print that I’ve made available through Society 6. Long story short, if I see one, I take a picture of it. This has been going on since 2010. […]
Filed under ‘the coolest thing I’ve seen all week’. A good friend passed along this fantastic photo set captured by Jamie Boud documenting the 2nd Annual Race of Gentlemen, that occurs in good ol’ Wildwood N.J. Go Jersey! From the looks of it, I may have to jump on a plane back east to see the race […]
The Spokesman from dean saffron on Vimeo.
This man has a wealth of bicycle knowledge stored in his head, and a collection to match. I admire his selfless mission and passion to preserve his amazing bicycle collection for future generations to enjoy. What an interesting person. Very much worth the view for bicycle lovers.
I was lucky to stumble across a classic BMW car club gathering this morning in West Seattle, along Alki beach. I quickly went home and grabbed my 7D and proceeded to get all up in their magnificent grills. After processing, I decided to upload a huge 50mb file to Society6 to make available as a […]
Kickstarter is an amazing phenomenon isn’t it? It allows brilliant people to bring their ideas to life by raising the funds to make it happen, this example is no exception. The beautiful wrist watch design above called ‘Vuelta’, was created by Leo Padron, founder of the Minneapolis based Padron Watch Company. His passion and knowledge for restoring Swiss and […]
I’ve seen a resurgence of some beautifully designed retro art deco fonts lately. Above are a couple that I’ve really taken a liking to, Cassannet (by Josip Kelava) & Metropolis (by atipo.es). They maintain a great classic quality while also feeling nice and fresh. Both terrific fonts for designers who are looking to shake it […]
The Derelicts a short film by eGarage from eGarage on Vimeo.
A friend at work passed this well captured and well told documentary vid along to me this morning. The man behind ICON, modern engineeering, classic purposeful design, discusses his love for the “derelict style”. Love the description “time burned, natural finish and patina”.

PRIME from thismustbetheplace on Vimeo.
This beautifully captured short documentary left me feeling bit home sick for NYC, and also a lot hungry for a good ol’ fashioned burger. Well worth the view.
Notes from Vimeo:
“Prime Burger Restaurant, in Midtown Manhattan. For many of the guys that work here, the restaurant is like a second home – […]
Tumblr has become such an amazingly vast archive of people’s interests, I never know what I’ll discover on my dashboard. Being a car guy, and a fan of all things obscure and retro, I’m having a lot of fun with antiquegleam.tumblr.com. Lot’s of old forgotten automobile designs, ads and odd captures of the classics in […]
When I was in school I thought my typography teacher was pure evil for having us hand letter the alphabet over and over until we got our kerning and serifs perfectly nailed down. Years later, I now understand and greatly appreciate what he was teaching us. Brooklyn based designer Dana Tanamachi has a collection of […]
Today I stopped in and took some pics of the newest retail addition to Seattle’s downtown shopping district, ‘All Saints Co.’ (based out of London). Aside from the nice retro typography, fluid branding and tall windows impressively stacked floor to ceiling with vintage sewing machines, I was also pretty excited to see iPads spotted throughout […]
If you have a second to spare today and you enjoy retro-classic illustration and typography, you should check out Belgium based designer Veerle Pieters’s ‘inspiration stream’. She’s taken the time to curate a nice collection of retro-kitche works by various designers and artists. Her entire site is a great place to click around for inspiration.
Emigre has released it’s ‘Emigre No. 70’ issue that they are calling ‘the Look Back Issue’ celebrating 25 years of superb font creation. From what I’ve seen on type blog ‘ilovetypography’ the spreads are vivid, inspiring and full of classic Emigre fonts. A nice book to have around the house or studio. You can find […]
