Braille Neue is one of those things that you can’t believe doesn’t already exist. The kind of thing you wish you’d thought of. Created by Japanese designer Kosuke Takahashi, Braille Neue is a brand new typeface that overlays braille onto English and Japanese characters, with the aim enabling braille to be used in more public spaces (its use is often limited due to space restrictions) and therefore allowing information to be accessed more easily by those with visual impairments.
From practical applications such as street signs and directions, to opening up exhibits in museums and galleries to wider audiences, the potential uses for Braille Neue are endless.
36 Days of Type is an annual challenge set by Graphic Designers Nina Sans and Rafa Goicoechea to creatives all over the world, encouraging them to create a letter of the alphabet or number each day for 36 days. This year’s started on 3rd April and several DB-ers have been participating on Instagram…

Next up, a brilliant, funny, shocking, sad, uplifting, provactive (all of the emotions!) short film from Stephen Archbold, detailing artist Anthony Gormley’s ONE & OTHER project for the Fourth Plinth in London’s Trafalgar Square. In 2009, and set over the course of 100 consecutive days, Gormley’s idea was to put a different member of the public on the plinth for 1 hour at a time, 24 hours a day for the entire duration of the commission, allowing them to use the time and space to do as they pleased. As his website states, “It’s about people coming together to do something extraordinary and unpredictable.”
