book - Most amazing retro graphic design book publishing store in New York City

I got so inspired by this most amazing retro graphic design book publishing store in New York City. I was amazed by their wonderful book designs and graphic design skills in their layouts. I have made a nice collection here of what you can see and buy on their website. I can’t wait to visit next time I am in NYC to experience and feel their books. Finding a gem like this and with a very decent website is quite rare for me. It’s very retro most of what they have and in the most amazing way. I am not being paid or sponsored in any way by saying check out Standard Manual website and go explore their many books and so forth. You might wanna visit to get the full experience!

 

“Our mission is to archive and preserve artifacts of design history and make them available to future generations. From reprinted graphics standards manuals to new compendiums of archival work, our titles always aim to make great design available to all.”

 

Standard Manual is apperantly an independent publishing imprint founded by two guys, Jesse Reed and Hamish Smyth and I just love how passionate the guys are by just going through their website.

On their about page you can read more about their passion like:

 

“As designers ourselves, we value high quality books. As an independent publisher, we produce our books using only the finest papers, printing, and finishing methods. We don’t cut corners when it comes to quality.”

Free Stock Photos – Nordic Interior textures

12 Feb

It’s been along time since I last updated this blog and this time I fell back into my passion about textures. Every time I walk into a place like a well-designed store or restaurant. I tend to get mesmerized by all the textures that’s around me. Through the years I’ve built up a whole collection of different textures that can be used in webdesign and graphic design. Are use this text just to get inspired when I make websites or graphic productions for my clients. I might sometimes even blur them out and please text on top.

I don’t want to waste all these awesome pictures so I guess I started taking new photos these past days to share them with you. You are welcome to use them as you like. The only thing you can’t do is sell them. All I want is for you to credit me in your graphic production and link to my site. Please put the following next to/close to the production or wherever you use them:

“Photo by: Mark Barner – thedanishdesigner.com”

You are welcome to use them as a screensaver on your computer or iPhone without giving credits.

Free HD wallpaper

I myself love to find wallpapers that inspire me and for that reason you should also use these free wallpaper photos as you like on your iPhone / iPad or computer.

Let me know what you think of them? I call them “Nordic Interior Textures” as I have found them on walls or floors and ceilings of many different stores in Copenhagen, Denmark.
