eksten.net - webgraphix 1/23/06 Description:
font archive (primarily intended for viewing samples), plus wallpapers and links
"Hi, I'm Chrissie and I'm a fontaholic..." The archive contains almost 700 fonts and dingbats and though some may be downloaded from the site directly, many are not due to her respecting each font creator's distribution rules. Chrissie suggests to "look upon this archive as a font showing area instead where I do the hunting and serve you the goodies..." Fair enough, especially because she's also taken the time to provide a link to each font creator's website. There's also a small section of links plus some wallpapers for you Goo Goo Dolls fans. More through the front door, online since '96...;~))

collecting professional acts of social responsibility
"Graphic design is young: 95% of the graphic designers who have ever lived are alive today. Together we can still define our profession: will it be about inventing visual lies to create larger market share, or will it be about taking responsibility for helping build a better world?" A collection of posters done for various non-profit organizations and charitable causes by some very talented designers who care enough to "use their creative skill to improve the human condition..."

HEL LOOKS 1/16/06 Description:
street fashion photos taken in the streets and clubs of Helsinki
Liisa and Sampo call it a hobby project. They like "fashion, clothing, young people and photography" and with permission, take photos of people on the street and in clubs around Helsinki to "document Finnish looks." Along with each photo are comments made by the photo subject regarding their tastes in fashion and style. The duo behind the project say they "we want to encourage people to dress individually and create their own styles" and among the entries are many interesting individuals indeed – cool concept!
New York City Walk 1/11/06 Description:
images and commentary from a 2-1/2 year project, walking every street on the island of Manhattan
"The biggest celebrity in New York City is New York itself." After living there for a few years, Caleb came across a building "off the beaten path" and realized that what one sees on the "heavily-travelled Avenues" of Manhattan is a small part of the real picture – there were secrets to be discovered on those smaller streets and he decided to "explore them systematically." Well. By the time Caleb was done, 2-1/2 years later, he had walked every street in Manhattan – all 700 miles of 'em! Amazing determination to have pulled that off – cheers to Caleb for the accomplishment and for documenting it so well in photos and commentary on the website. Now we're talkin' cool...;~)) [what about the plastic animals? < Disarranging Mine]

street photography (Flash)
I can't say which photo was my fave 'cause I love all 12 of 'em. Great urban style. I really like the way the images fill the window at any resolution. It's a quick and enjoyable browse – graffiti, people on the street, trains – enjoy! [CreativeCream]
