All Round Gothic - Type Family

The All Round Gothic font family was designed by Ryoichi Tsunekawa (Font Publisher: Flat-it). The typeface design takes its inspiration from simple and clean sans serif fonts such as Avant Garde Gothic and Futura. All Round Gothic has a modern geometric shape. It looks futuristic with an organic impression. The form has its origins in the 1920s Bauhaus and contemporary design trends. All Round Gothic is suitable for headlines, text, logotypes, posters, and animations. Because of the soft and friendly letterforms - All Round Gothic is very legible. The complete font family consists of 5 weights + corresponding obliques (italics).

Caleb Brown (b.1981, USA) - Shark Drop. Oil on Canvas (2009-2010)

New York based artist Caleb Brown was born in Washington State where he was raised and started drawing and painting at a very young age. His paintings are cultural allegories that aim to reflect his view of the modern world. He combines themes and elements of contemporary life (such as media culture, genetic engineering, globalization, etc.) and expands into completely ridiculous scenes that depict a fictitious near-future or alternate reality. Brown’s hope is that by employing this editorial and often satirical method of expression, rather than using a more journalistic approach, he might communicate his observations and feelings about our modern existence more aptly than by painting actual images of contemporary life. Great thanks to the artist for sending this over.

The Making Of: @strght Skateboards

For more photos from Strght Skateboards, be sure to follow @strght and check out their Photos of You section on your mobile device.

Gabe Willis is a surfer—or at least he was until he moved from sunny San Diego to landlocked Oklahoma for college. Facing a sudden lack of waves, Gabe bought a skateboard and took to the streets, only to be left with a broken board after a few weeks. Rather than dip into his student budget for a new one, Gabe decided to try his hand at making one himself. Drawing inspiration from old-fashioned wooden boards and his family’s engraving company, he set to work and documented his process on Instagram as he went.

As people saw the unique board he was creating, they wanted to figure out how to get one as well. Supported by the interest on Instagram, Gabe created the @strght account and began filling orders directly through Instagram. Now, seven months later, Strght has expanded to four full-time employees and has begun to sell in stores and through web retailers.

With the addition of Photos of You, Strght put out a call to action asking their followers to add the @strght Instagram account to their photos of the boards. As a result, they and their followers are now able to see photos from happy customers across Instagram brought into one neat place.
