Pour Coffee without Spilling, Finally
Millions of English ladies are wrong: Teapots are gross. Tea inevitably drips on the counter when you pour, then whatever’s left over gathers around the edges of the spout creating a yucky limescale. And it’s not like the stuff is easy to clean off; trying to jam a sponge in a spout is like putting a square peg in a round hole.

Five Things IDEO Taught The Feds About Design Thinking
Metropolis magazine has a good feature this month about IDEO’s Tet Offensive against Washington bureaucracy. Peter Hall reports that the feds, inspired by President Obama’s push to demystify big government, have tapped the innovation whizzes at IDEO to take on everything from web design for the Social Security Administration (SSA) to greening federal buildings. The ultimate goal: Make government more humane.

Attention young designers — this should be your bible: 34 Typographic Sins.
So I like the show psych (new season coming this fall). I know, it’s no mentalist, but the slapstick humor in the show is nice when you really don’t want to think too much. The font used in the show logo is a fat little font called Dateline (Bold). I can’t find the foundry or designer that actually created this typewriter font, so if anybody knows please tell me in the comments.
This font is available for free, and other weights seem to be spread out across the web for free as well.

6. Cheers, Dad
To celebrate Father’s Day, EveryGuyed and Moxy Creative House have teamed up once again to deliver the second installment of the ‘Cheers!’. This time we had creative director Glenn Michael raise a glass – and his brush – to 8 iconic animated dads, re-envisioning them as beer cans.
When you were a kid, Father’s Day was a pretty boring affair. Now you’re of age, and all of a sudden you have the chance to do something with your dad that he’ll actually enjoy: share a cold one together.
Whether you’re slaking your thirst with Popeye, or drowning your sorrows with Homer Simpson, these designs are a more mature look at the cartoons you grew up with. Cheers.
