Henry Hargreaves, photographer and designer extraordinaire created a font out of bacon. Henry is more then just talented- he’s a visionary. Really? Yes. I could discuss his toast portraits or posters from hair or rainbow spaghetti. But honestly, I think it would be too mind blowing to have them in one layout together. So please enjoy the masterful work of Mr. Henry’s Bacon Alphabet. And check out his other great work on his website, here.
And in the odd chance that Henry Hargreaves ever reads this:
Dear Henry, the world needs to know more about you. I have scoured the internet and it’s always the same quoted statements from your website. Yes, I know that you settled in Brooklyn, NY and have worked with Sagmeister and as pin-up boy for Prada, YSL, Jil Sander, Lacoste. But, I’d like to know more.. because, simply put- you’re too talented for us to not know more about you! An online interview or something personal about your inspiration would be nice. Thank you collectively from all the bloggers and designers and the blogging designers.

As part of the collection “Things I have learned in my life so far”, design studio Sagmeister Inc. used 250,000 euro-cent coins to form the quote “Obsessions Make My Life Worse and My Work Better” over a 300-sq.-meter area installation on Waagdragerhof Square in Amsterdam.
After completion, the coins were left unguarded. Less than 20 hours after the grand opening, local residents noticed a person bagging the coins and taking them away. Protective of the design piece they had watched being created, they called the police. In an effort to preserve the artwork, the police ended up sweeping the coins and destroying the work of more than 100 volunteers.
Collaborative work by Richard The, Joe Shouldice and Stefan Sagmeister. Original typography was created for this public installation entitled, Urban Play. Watch a time lapse video, here.
