Not only do I have radical friends in the graphic design program here at St.Edwards to show me what is ‘cool’, ‘hip’, and ‘alternative’ in design nowadays, I also have online sites to refer to for my indie-design (or indie-sign…see what I did there? like InDesign? tee-hee!).
One of my current favorites is http://thebigcaption.com/
With a tasteful design linking type to a photograph taken from Boston.com’s “The Big Picture”, Ian Collins creates hilarious captioned images worth looking at and laughing at. The tagline? “Wherein JOKES and STATEMENTS are made using TYPOGRAPHY” Be warned, a few can be a bit offensive.
