10ft Deep —

Hope everyone had a great, long, and safe weekend here in the states. My wife and I took no hesitation in firing up the grill and cracking a brew or two. Couldn't have asked for better weather.

It's been nice getting back to playing outside more and seeing everyone on Strava coming out of hibernation. Though the snow slipped away a little earlier this year than some of us would've liked, tis the season for spinning bikes and taking hikes!

There definitely seems to be a lot of mixed responses from every corner of the US about what's appropriate and what's not; and while I'm no expert, I'm thankful to be living in a place that's taken every precaution it can, and by doing so, has been a leader in getting that curve as flat as possible.

Now with summer in sight, here are a few drips to spark some 'play' in your day. Enjoy!   

Football Type 2
A book celebrating the history of football (ie: soccer for us 'mericans) and the typography that's shaped the identity of so many brilliant athletes and their cities that shower them with love. 
Concept: Spotify
The neumorphism trend being put to the test here in this robust redesign concept. And dare I say, executed in a way that kinda actually makes me not want to hate it?
YouTube Sans: Case Study
How YouTube created a tailor-made font that doubles as a brand ambassador. Including all 4 versions of the process to get it juuust right.
