Designed by Chen Lu Wei for Megawing this fun set of four erasers lets you assume the role of barber while you work, all you have to do first is make a mistake. By using the eraser you slowly shave away the rubbery hair surface resulting in a funky new hairdo for your desktop pal, effectively turning an act of destruction into an act of creation every time you erase. Pretty sure my kid would just start with the face. May or may no be available here. (via co.design)

Dizzying mathemetical how-tos and patterns available via his website. (via make)

Design student Jenny Kyvik Hutchens designed this elastic font as part of an assignment while at Westerdals School of Communication in Oslo. It was first made by hand in a grid system, and then vectorized into a snazzy print. (via typography served)
