Magic Pen Writes in Helvetica from Plexifilm

Got this in my inbox today. The hilarious group over at Plexifilm [same guys who made ‘Helvetica’] are giving away official Helvetica-writing pens with any purchase of ‘Objectified’ swag. Ha! I love this idea. If it had command-z as well, I’d buy a gross…

Magic pen writes in Helvetica

Ahhhh… technology. The geniuses at Plexifilm have spent the past two
years developing a Sharpie pen that actually writes in Helvetica! This
pen is so experimental that it’s priceless… literally. You can’t buy
one, but you can get one free with any Helvetica-related purchase
(DVD, T-shirt, etc.). Get your free pen while they last. It’s a great
gift for that person in your life with sloppy handwriting…

* Warning: if you are John Downer or Marian Bantjes then the pen will
actually write in Helvetica. Otherwise, your results may vary. Do not
swallow. Keep away from open flame and co-workers. May cause

Ligature Volume 2: Barbara Kosoff Collages Out Now


Ligature Online is a micro-site produced by Big Fig Design Group. It will be by and about artists making unusual connections that just released Volume 2: Barbara Kosoff.

As regular readers already know, we are big fans of anything that puts two and two together and comes up with six. Barbara's work makes us smile. From the press release:

"Many artists who have worked in the commercial art world might very well be satisfied with the challenges and rewards that world provides; Barbara Kosoff is not one of those people. Drawing on her diverse experiences as a designer and art director, Barbara has turned to collage to express her unique voice."
