Project Thirty Three is a blog by Seattle-based Jive Time Records, showcasing a fantastic collection of record sleeve designs. The way they are categorised by motif (Circles and Dots, Squares and Rectangles, Lines and Stripes) makes for fun browsing. As far as I can tell, the sleeves are mainly from the 1950s, 60s and 70s.

The seemingly infinite number of vintage record jackets that convey their message with only simple shapes and typography never cease to amaze us.

Sometimes less really is more! Look at these fine specimens:

Lost Type Co-op is a font foundry with a unique philosophy: they distribute beautiful and unique typefaces, and you decide how much you want to pay! The designer of the particular font you choose to download gets the full amount of your donation. Creators Riley Cran of Seattle and Tyler Galpin of Toronto reckon this pay-what-you-want type foundry is the first of its kind.

Ever since we released Muncie in February, we received an overwhelming response from the community at large. We felt it was important for everyone to have access to unique and beautiful typefaces, based on a very approachable model.

Definitely worth a bookmark! Here are a few samples from the Lost Type Co-op collection:
