Better tag clouds

Over at Wordle you can input any text and turn it to a customizable tag cloud. Too bad you can't replace your so very outdated Web 2.0 tags with that.

Jack Daniel's type

Jack Daniel's may have all those gold medals, but the AWA pair needs a lot of work.

Hairy type

Wonderful work for a British Airways campaign by Alex Trochut, more to see here

Sexy type

Great work, see the rest of the calendar here. Who's your favourite Miss?

Font of the day: Morice

Morice by Letterbox can build a solid base of a magazine as a headline font. Although it's not really solid, but rather playful itself :) Also nice: Kevlar, Berber
