You

I thought I might as well make a few quick desktops out of the graphic I made for the previous post. Here are 4 of my favourite designer chat up lines:

Chat up lines for Web Designers

20 Cheesiest Pick-up Lines to Use on Web Designers

I was emailed (cheers Greeny) this list of cheesey chat up lines to use on web designers, made me laugh. Not sure where it originated from, possibly here, feel free to add your own in the comments ;)

  1. I wish I had an Eyedropper to capture the color of your eyes.
  2. Has anybody ever told you that your teeth have perfect kerning?
  3. If you were a logo, it would be for a really premium brand.
  4. I’m just like a global nav; I love to be on top.
  5. Come back to my place and I’ll show you a really naughty way to fill up some negative space.
  6. Would you like to lorem ipsum dolor sit on my lap?
  7. If I went to a stock photography site and typed in the keyword: “sexy”, I bet there’d be a picture of you.
  8. I couldn’t help but notice your eye path went right to my smudge stick.
  9. First I think I’ll stroke your curve, then I’d like to fill you.
  10. Is that Content Aware Scaling or are you just happy to see me?
  11. You look perfectly put together. Do you display this well in IE?
  12. I like my fonts sans-serif, and you sans-pants.
  13. You know the hotkey to my Magic Wand Tool
  14. I dig your look and feel.
  15. If you like what you see now, wait’ll you look below the fold.
  16. Let’s “Skip Intro” and just go find a hotel room right now.
  17. When I serve you breakfast in bed tomorrow, would you like your coffee with cream and sugar, or do you prefer it #000000?
  18. Do you want to touch my Bézier curves?
  19. What if I told you the fly on my troussers opens quicker than a 500k JPEG file?
  20. Mind if I take you for a usability test?

Phaeton Typeface

Phaeton Typeface

I‘m a massive fan of Kevin Cornell’s illustration work, so was delighted today when I saw he’s made his first font – Phaeton. Like most of his stuff it’s straight out of the Victorian era, oozing with charm & character, and chock-full of different ligatures & vignettes. You can get it for £35 from Veer.

He was helped out by typographer Randy Jones, who’s made a similar hand-drawn type – Olduvai. Sadly my budget didn’t quite stretch to that.. but it looks very nice.

Obama Naked with Unicorns..

Obama Naked with Unicorns

This is one of the weirdest things I’ve seen in a while.. by an equally strange artist called The Painter of Pancakes. He says he started painting after “I had something of a mental and spiritual breakdown”, makes sense, and he also adds “My paintings sometimes horrify my family”. Well I say good work, they put a smile on my face, check out all his Naked Obama’s with Unicorns here »

Bizarre video of him here.

Check out his paintings for sale on eBay.

Switzerland Holiday Video

I‘m in the process of editing the video of our Swiss walk. I’ll not bore you with the whole thing, but here’s the intro. We had probably the worst weather I’ve ever had on a walking holiday, but when it wasn’t raining there was a few days of glorious sunshine. The intro reflects these two opposite experiences, starting off with all the bad stuff, then as the song changes, so does the weather and all is good :)
