I was doing some research today for inspiration.
After a while I realized that I had found some awesome inspirational material referring to typography and thought that it would be great to pass on all this beauty in addition with a great typography documentary suggestion (thanx to my friend akis for this) !
I hope you find them interesting! ;)

1. Helvetica, a documentary film by Garry Hustwit

As stated in the website:
"Helvetica is a feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the proliferation of one typeface (which celebrated its 50th birthday in 2007) as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives. The film is an exploration of urban spaces in major cities and the type that inhabits them, and a fluid discussion with renowned designers about their work, the creative process, and the choices and aesthetics behind their use of type. "

2. A great typography publication found @


3. Pentagram "Find what type are you" application:

4. Found at Creative Review article
"Moshun - animated typeface", August 2010

5. The typographic circle on tweeter @typocircle

ps: also thnx to @neringaplange for some great tweets ;) keep up!

The journey of a mad mind's conspiracy theories to FACT & Bluecoat

Inspired by Zeitgeist and various news headlines, more than a year ago, I felt obligated to reveal what I' ve known... the truth... a story behind the scenes, the first step towards the end of the world. I can foresee the future you know... and I couldn't keep it any more trapped inside my mad mind...I had to pass my visions and so I created Code Annihilation... I am telling you, we are being watched...we are going to be invaded!

“Code Annihilation” is an interactive narrative merging history, fiction and conspiracy theories, a collision of nostalgia and futuristic themes.

The piece focuses on user experience and experiments with alternative storytelling methods. It was created aiming to provide a non-linear personal practice allowing the user to explore through the different parts of the story in order to reveal a conspiracy. In fact, one interacts with a switchboard and a mouse to uncover the plot – like a spy retrieving clues.

The first version of the project was actually made for the 3rd year's module of my BA (i-media in LJMU)"Novel Interaction". It was a prototype where the switchboard was made in a shoebox.

During the summer of 2009, I found out that Code Annihilation would be a part of the AND festival, which was organized by FACT in the end of September 2009. It would represent LJMU along with two more graduate students' works. For that reason, with the help of my teachers, the installation was redesigned so it was appropriate to be exhibited in a public space. Aiming to capture the essence of the story, add to the experience and make it user friendly, a custom plynth was made and vintage headphones were bought. And here we were with the final version of the piece.

But the journey didn't stop in FACT from 23 to 27 September 2009; the word needed to be spread.

Next stop: Bluecoat. Code Annihilation was a part of the "Views from the Grassy Knoll" event day where truth and fantasy divided and collided through talks, screenings and performances.

Now what? Code Annihilation stands at the corridors of Liverpool Screen School (LJMU, Edge Lane) waiting to be explored by students and anticipating for its next stop.

The aim remains the same: People need to know!

Less is more

Suddenly I woke up! An article suggestion and here I am ... 2 days after with words dancing in my mind and images flashing inside me...

Realization: Words are powerful; in the right order become devine.

Reading the article "Very Short Stories" from "Wired" magazine, issue 14.11 (November 2006) , I first read Hemingway's shortest story.

"For sale: baby shoes, never worn."

In just 6 words Hemingway managed to deliever such a powerfull story.
6 words so dominant and so tragic.

A friend said: "Well, sometimes what we miss out is the most important."
And yes, in this article of Wired i found a proof that what we miss out could triger others' imagination in such way that becomes the most important element of a narrative. Several writers were asked to follow Heminway's example and write short stories with six words. The result for me is absolutly inspiring.

Gown removed carelessly. Head, less so.
Joss Whedon

Longed for him. Got him. Shit.
Margaret Atwood

Wasted day. Wasted life. Dessert, please.
Steven Meretzk

Tick tock tick tock tick tick.
Neal Stephenson

Thought I was right. I wasn't.
Graeme Gibson

Dorothy: "Fuck it, I'll stay here."
Steven Meretzky

These are a few of the 59 very short stories of Wired's article.

The first one actually became my inspiration for the illustration above and eventually for a creative full day.

I am pleased...

P.S. I need to thank a few.
Phlegyas for suggesting the article
Wundercloud for the creative day
Cris Day for the nice comment
