First post of week 2! All of the designers at work are having a beard contest in November. We each designed posters for it as well, here is mine.

Designers often do things just so they can design a cool poster. Good thing, too. Otherwise, some designers might not be awesomely bearded.

How to be an Ironic Hipster and Ironic at the Same Time

When my friend, Mette, showed up to Keep Portland Beard with her Stick of Irony, I was overjoyed. The diligent anthropologist that she is, Mette has written about the experience and included a fantastic infographic. 

Honestly, any excuse to check out The Bureau of Betterment is a good excuse. So go forth; be hip.

International Moustache Day: First Friday in August

I’m not sure by whose authority this day of honor is declared, but any excuse to whip out the summer ’stache is fine by me. 

It should be noted that this chart is all too cramped. A personal favorite is still Fontstaches by Tor Weeks, a simple, elegant and creative chart for the typoholic in us all.

The world’s finest stache of quality papers.

French Paper moustache

I’ve been a fan of French Paper ever since I made some super-Portlandy beard posters with my friend Kyle Durrie of Power and Light Press. It’s no secret they have the finest stash of quality papers, but now they’ve got the collateral to back it up. It’s nice to see French Paper is a moustache-friendly company. 


Cooking with Pomaine’s moustache

Edouard de Pomiane (1875-1964) was one of the first great modern food writers and culinary personalities, a biologist by training who invented the field he called “gastrotechnology,” or the science of cookery. He was also known for his great moustache.

Justus Oehler via Pentagram just designed a beautifully moustachio’d new cover for the classic book.
