It’s Friday – you know what that means! Happy Triangle Friday everyone! There are quite a few geometric fonts popping up recently, however I think my favourite has to be Geomas  by Josip Kelava: Josip has produced 2 different weights, so from the simpler weight… … to the tri-overload weight… …They’re both pretty awesome if you ask me! Geomas is available to buy from hand made font. I hope that’s inspired you to have a tri-tastic...

Happy Triangle Friday! My course mate, Talveer, showed me these polygonal drawings by Jean-Michel Verbeeck which are awesome and so I thought I would share them with you guys: A goose… … an elephant… … a wolf… …a ram… … and a horse. 3D animals constructed from triangles – great idea. I also love the use of black and white – simple, elegant and the stripes add an extra dimension too. I can think of loads of...

Happy Tri Fri everyone! As I mentioned the other day, I’m pretty pre-occupied with a deadline at the moment so it’s a bit quiet blogging-wise but of course I have a bit of time to appreciate triangles today! I found this set of posters by Derek Kim: If I’m honest, I don’t really know what they’re for as the writing is too small for me to read & I haven’t been able to find any...

Happy Tri Fri! So it’s the 28th today, which means Christmas has now been and gone without a flake of snow. But don’t worry – we can have our own snow without all of the coldness and disruption because I found this app by Ideas Factory: Basically, you enter your name and using some kind of maths, it generates a snowflake which is unique to your name! How cool is that? Try it for yourself...

Happy Triangle Friday! So with it being the last Friday before christmas, I thought this was relevant: This is a Sierpinski triangle. I first came across this when I was researching the never ending question, ‘How long is a piece of string’ for my conflict project earlier this year. The Sierpinski triangle can be described as a fractal. ‘A what?’ you say. Basically, a fractal is a geometric object that is similar to itself on...

Happy Tri Fri! It was hard for me (as I’m usually a scrooge), but this week I’ve come to the conclusion that I can’t ignore Christmas for any longer thanks to this book: Triangle trees… … triangle birds and triangle boats. This is ‘The Fir Tree’ which is a traditional Danish Christmas story by Hans Christian Andersen. This particular edition was tri-tastically illustrated by Sanna Annukka (half Finnish/half English). During her childhood, she spent many summers in...

Happy Triangle Friday! Being a 3rd year Graphic Design student pretty hectic sometimes (ok, 99.5% of the time!), but recently I’ve had a bit of time to think about the future and what’s going to happen beyond University. It’s pretty scary really because in a sense I’m on a stairway into the unknown, travelling onwards (and hopefully upwards!). I saw this image last week and think that it is not only beautiful and contains a...

Happy Triangle Friday! From something a bit wacky last week (Noisy Jelly) to something delicately beautiful this week: Matthew Shlian‘s paper craft is just amazing. A lot of his work features triangles… I guess it’s just because it’s the best shape 😉 Watch him in action: Wow. I can’t believe how easily he folds it back together at 1.40 – skill! In a way, I kinda feel a cheated because initially I thought he had cut everything...

Happy Triangle Friday! Today Graphique Fantastique has reached 100,000 views, which is awesome – thanks for all of your support! So how to celebrate? A party!? And what do you have at parties…? Jelly (& ice cream) and music! Noisy Jelly is an awesome experiemental collaboration between Marianne Cauvard and Raphael Pluvinage: You can create jellies in a variety of colours and shapes which produce different sounds. When placed on the game board, the fun...

Happy Triangle Friday! I was browsing through bloglovin’ the other day when I came across something beautiful: In March 2011, Dutch agency BaksvanWengerden Architecten were commissioned to renovate and enlarge a single-family house. SH House, as it is known, was finished in June 2012 and I think the result is tri-tastic. Now all I need to do is win the lottery, buy this house and move to Amsterdam… ha It would be actually perfect if it...

Happy Triangle Friday! Today I’m in London at St Brides for the ‘Letterpress: Something to say’ talks, so I scheduled this post – can’t miss Tri Fri, can we? I was walking through Waterside shopping centre when I noticed that one of the window displays was in the middle of being changed… … to a cosmic, fluoro pink triangle theme. Topshop always has a great image, but when there are triangles involved it’s even better! At...

Welcome to the weekend – happy Triangle Friday! I follow over 200 blogs (ridiculous, I know!) and one of my recent favourites  is Geometry Daily. It’s a tumblr blog on which Tilman, a Graphic Designer from Germany, creates and posts a new geometric minimal composition everyday. Triangles are classed under the geometric family, and so feature in a lot of Tilman’s creations which makes me happy! Feast your eyes on these: From simple outlines… .. to...

Happy Triangle Friday! It’s turned very autumny in the last couple of days; the nights are drawing in and there’s lots of lovely colourful leaves scattered on the pavements. The only downside is the cold – winter is definitely on it’s way! I’ve been quite (VERY) busy with Uni work this week (again) and I was just going to post a photo and an excuse/apology, but as I walked back from the studio I had...

Happy Tri Fri! This week I’ve been working hard to meet my first deadline back at University. I’ve been dabbling in a bit of model making and interior design to create an experience. More on that soon, but I thought this lovely wallpaper was kind of appropriate considering what I’ve been working on: I love this triangular patterned wallpaper by Custhom. The above is a roll from the Goldsmiths collection, created for the Design Museum shop. It’s...

Happy Tri Fri! This week I’ve been listening to Ellie Goulding’s new album, Halcyon, non-stop. It just so happens that Ellie is a fan of triangles too: Triangles feature in a few of Ellie’s music videos – from the triangular mirror in new single ‘Anything can happen’ (above)… … to her triangular shaped sparkly earrings in ‘Starry eyed’ and also in the structure of the lighthouse in ‘The writer’: But it doesn’t end there! In...
