Every Friday we round up some of our favorite finds on the web this week, from illustrations and videos to fonts and photography.

Buy a poster in aid of Nepal
Given this week’s major aftershock, the earthquake relief work in Nepal still needs the world’s aid and attention. Two very different companies – family run design agency Haum (top image below) and global ad firm Wieden + Kennedy – have each designed beautiful posters to help with fundraising. All proceeds from Haum sales will go to the Disaster Emergency Committee, while W+K is donating to Mercy Corps.

Strike out
As part of a presentation at the IAB Video conference in Dublin this week, creative agency Rothco showed a very funny video that highlights the perils of getting close to the action. Watch the Vine

Take a little walk to the edge of town
Fans of Dr. Seuss and Nick Cave may soon be fans of Dr. Faustus. The Australian artist has taken the lyrics of Red Right Hand – a song by his fellow countryman Cave – and illustrated them in the style of the celebrated children’s book creator. Probably not something you want to read to your kids before bedtime, but a spooky little treat for the rest of us. Here’s the full story
