Friday’s favorite things: October 2nd

Colm Larkin

October 2, 2015

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

This week, we focused on Manchester Moleskine, a project developed by UK creatives, Jon Massey and Adam Stanway, that involves sending a 104-page Moleskine notebook to 52 different creative professionals based in their home city of Manchester. What each person or business does with their double-page spread is up to them but the results are usually fantastic.

Jon and Adam were kind enough to share some of their fantastic images with us and below are some highlights. When completed, the notebook will be auctioned off for charity. Find out more here or follow the project on Twitter.

Quality street
Illustrator Will Berry filled the very first pages of the Moleskine notebook and set the bar incredibly high with this stunning street scene sketch.

Empire state doodling
Digital agency, We Are Empire, turned their pages into a collaborative affair, with multiple doodlers working at the same time on this fun image. They also captured their efforts in a stop-motion video.

Code read
Dan Hett is a cutting edge creative programmer who does some mind-blowing things with code. Like The Scribbler, a giant pencil that will write messages sent to it via Twitter. Dan’s contribution to Manchester Moleskine was to share the code that you can use to create a scribbling machine of your own.
