Victorian Christmas Cards That Are As Creepy As Those Times Themselves

If you think holidays are weird these days, then you clearly haven’t seen these 19th-century Victorian era Christmas cards that were just as creepy as those times themselves. From frogs stabbing each other to Krampus (a half-goat, half-daemon) entertaining the ladies… Yeah, these seem random as hell these days, but when you think of it, they actually work as a time machine and reveal the relevant topics of those days. Here: Greetings From Krampus Continue »

Minimalist Christmas Cards Cleverly Use Type To Create Colorful Festive Images

A couple of years ago, Milan-based graphic designer Luca Milani created a Christmas Edition of his graphic project ‘FONTLOVE’, where he uses type to create minimalist festive images. In addition to posters, Milani has also used these graphics on greeting cards—on the back of the cards, you would find the name of the typeface and all the characters that have been used.

National Geographic Nature Photographer Of The Year 2016 Winners

The annual National Geographic travel photographer of the year contest attracted 10,000 entries worldwide this year. Selected from thousands of entries, an underwater photo of sardine predation off the Wild Coast of South Africa was selected as the winning image for the 2016 National Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year contest. Here’s a selection of the winning entries.

1st Place-Action + Grand Prize: Sardine Run

During the sardine migration along the Wild Coast of South Africa, millions of sardines are preyed upon by marine predators such as dolphins, marine birds, sharks, whales, penguins, sailfishes, and sea lions. The hunt begins with common dolphins that have developed special hunting techniques to create and drive bait balls to the surface. In recent years, probably due to overfishing and climate change, the annual sardine run has become more and more unpredictable. It took me two weeks to have the opportunity to witness and capture this marine predation. (Greg Lecoeur/2016 National Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year) Continue »
