Quick Links

Happy New Year everyone!! We had a nice relaxing break, so I hope you all got to enjoy some time off as well. Now that we’ve had some time to step away, we’re really excited to get back to work bringing you lots of daily inspiration. As previously mentioned, there will be quite a few changes around here over the next couple of months, so stay tuned for that, but here are a few links to help you get the first week of 2011 going.

FontShop presents their picks for the top fonts of 2010. I’ll share my own favorites on Thursday.

Here is a fun New Year’s promotional video created by Schwartz & Sons.

The Casual Optimist recently featured a great interview with the Heads of State.

Here’s an excellent breakdown of the Egoist network identities over at Fonts in Use.

I found a few gems in this round-up of 2010’s best illustrator tutorials over at Noupe.
