Friday Favourites

The nights are starting to draw in, so our first favourite this week is a series of nocturnal photography, shot by Jonathan May in Russia. Winter is most definitely coming (except for our Singapore team, where it’s always summer):

Found on Fubiz, you can see more on May’s Instagram.

The Birds

Keeping with the photography theme, here are some of our highlights from this year’s Bird Photographer of the Year Awards:

BPOTY_Owl

BPOTY_Flamingos

We spotted these on Colossal, and you can find out more on the Awards website.

Type Inspiration

We came across two nice type stories to share this week starting with Vesterbro, a new typeface that is full of Scandinavian spirit:

You can read the story behind Vesterbro on AIGA Eye on Design.

Our second type find is The Tree Alphabet, created by Katie Holten who has used it to in her book ‘ABOUT TREES’, which contains all sorts of written work about trees, forests and nature.

TheTreeAlphabet

You can find out more about the book here (we originally found the story on Kottke.)

Ballpoint

And finally this week, our favourite new illustrator find is Nuria Riaza, whose tool of the trade is the humble ballpoint pen:
