Beautiful

Pages from 'Babylon', first issue of

Jason Bronkhorst in 'Babylon', first issue of Pangram

I love the first issue of Pangram called ‘Babylon‘ and I love the reader/publisher tool they’re using called ‘Issuu‘ (great page-turning action and pretty design) and I love this great pic of Jason called ‘what-a-yummy-icky-eye-you-have-there-in-your-hands’ (actually that isn’t the official title).

I like what Jason says below about getting stuff done:

There are many other gems in there (like Charl Malherbe‘s illos – and if you don’t know what illos are you are as dumb as I was about 2 weeks ago), so please take a look.

Jason and Charl (a.k.a. Infiltrate Media) are our favorite designers and have done some really beautiful work for us at iCommons and more recently, the rad illustrations on africancommons.org and, very impressively, these beautiful illustrations for a job I’m doing for Cyber Nurse.

What I don’t understand is why people don’t use illustrators more. In Japan, even the roadworks signs are illustrated with cute little men in uniforms, and everyone knows that being able to see cute little men in uniforms as you navigate your way through the busy streets makes ALL the difference!

I wish beautiful people like Jason and Charl and the cool folks at Pangram many, many riches (both material and immaterial). May the true ‘doers’ like them lead long and happy lives.
