Here at SGC, we don’t just like looking at your geek crafts, sometimes we even make our own!

I sketched this pattern out after watching the film and, like the rest of the audience, falling in love with Groot! Couldn’t wait to stitch it out.

Have a geeky craft you’ve done? We’d love to see it! Send it through our submit button to see it here.

We’d love a pattern for this! So great!

Notes from TypeCon: Dana Tanamachi-Williams

Full-Pattern Friday!


Dana Tanamachi-Williams gave a wonderful and entertaining presentation about her work at TypeCon last week, which included Flourish — a personal project done in collaboration with filmmaker and photographer Andrew Ryan Shepherd. We’d explain what the project is about, but it’s better if you just watch it. Trust us.

I’ll be showing more leading up to and after the release. Look carefully though, in spirit of the film and Poirot, there may be some clues hidden for those willing to look…

Grandmother Tips

As every grandmother has some very good life advices and tips for hard situations so has the grannie of Chacho Puebla, typographer from Madrid, Spain. Hey says:”When you´re younger you think you´ll never fall into that same kind of discourse, until you find yourself talking about stupid (cliché) stuff with your kid, about how important school is and if you don´t have a degree you´re nobody.” The images and typography show what we maybe say to our grandchildren later on. Don’t forget: Don’t trust anyone who is using Xing as Social Media!” Enjoy them…
