Some Type of Wonderful

I’ve seen a couple design blogs talk about lifelounge.com’s Some Type of Wonderful project. Their logo has a friendly elegance. I love seeing today’s designers approaching serif fonts in a refreshing manner. You watch. Serifs will dominate the 2010 decade.

And the STW project is worth checking out. There’s plenty of uber trendy displays of typography going on with more to come in the near future. Here’s their mission statement:

It
s no secret that we
re somewhat obsessed with good typography here at Lifelounge
and what better way for us to celebrate this obsession than to collaborate with some of the most creative type geeks in the world.

We
ve invited 12 of our favourite artists and designers from around the globe to join us in a typographic project we
ve called Some Type Of Wonderful where each artist has been asked to respond typographically to a design brief related to a designated month of the year. Each of the unique designs will be offered through lifelounge.com as signed, limited edition A1 Giclee prints. They will also be available all together as a limited edition, beautifully designed 2009 wall calendar to enjoy for the following year.

Some Type Of Wonderful will also be holding an exhibition of the works at Melbourne’s McCulloch Gallery with a launch party in late October. Stay tuned for more info.
