Following exhibitions in Melbourne and Sydney, the series of prints created for this year's Some Type of Wonderful are now available to buy online...


Some Type of Wonderful is an annual type design project from Lifelounge which invites 12 artists/designers/typographers to each respond to a design brief relating to a month of the year. The resulting designs were then turned into a set of limited edition glycee prints that have already been exhibited in Melbourne and Sydney. The prints are now available to buy online at and have also been turned into a limited edition 2010 calendar. Each print comes in an edition of 36 and are available for the highly reasonable price of AUS $250. The calendars are AUS $40. Get them while you can.

Dreadful. Whole bag of technique and not an idea or a whiff of craft skill in sight. Looks like a retrospective of Computer Arts tutorials.

why all the hating? I quite like some of them (but not enough to pay the modest AU$250...this is a recession dudes).

These look like first year art college attempts. Actually, that's insulting to the students.
There's no substance or charm to them whatsoever!
I'm actually shocked like Bob above

I agree with ktz, they might be over my budget but they are in no way anything like first year college attempts. Are you an unhappy Chappy ??
