Thirsty for Typography Thursday #8

Happy new year everyone, I hope that 2009 brings you plenty of joy and love... For this week's Thirsty for Typography Thursday, I proudly present Oscar Diaz, designer of this wonderful series of "self-printed" calendar and plant posters created with bleeding ink. This particular project truly resonated with me, communication time not only visually but conceptually as the ink slowly bleeds into the paper to reveal the dates. Oscar Diaz is a product designer based in London where he works with ideas applied to objects, furniture and spaces, both on commissioned and self-initiated projects. Much of Oscar's work is concerned with tweaking everyday objects or situations. Mixing influences from craft and technology, his approach is often multifaceted, investigative and playful, transforming the ordinary by challenging conventions. To see the rest of his work, please visit his website.

This is an absolutely brilliant idea! It's hard finding "new" ideas in design and this is one of them. It's such a simple yet beautiful execution. Thanks Marie Bee for exposing this designer to me!
