For Stefan Sagmeister’s “Things I Have Learned in My Life” project designer Adam Katz spray painted 1,500 plas­tic army men and adhered them to a glass window to spell “All of my good ideas are battles” — a useful phrase to define the creative struggle. Very cool.

If you’re interested in army guys as a medium I would be remiss not to direct you to Dominic Wilcox’s War Bowls, or this impressive installation by Brett Yasko. (via design work life)

Barbed Type: The Devil’s Rope

The Devil’s Rope is an experimental type piece by designer Andrew Effendy.

… a series of wires pulled across two wooden posts. They are treated to look like barbed wire, except at the spiny, barbed sections where the wires form letters of the alphabet, A through Z. As a whole, the piece seems like a sinister fence of letters, its menacing script casting peculiar shadows on the walls. The allusion of language as a barricade is unavoidable. Effendy’s piece makes you mull over the role of language and how—especially, in today’s world of information overload—language has the power to encourage progress as well as impede it.

Norwegian designer Ludvig Bruneau Rossow has built an entire typeface out of a train set. See the rest of it here. For me this simultaneously evokes childhood nostalgia of spending time with my dad building model train sets and setting type for a Vandercook printing press. True story. (via @presentcorrect)
