Project Hinglish - Incredible India

Tourists visiting India now have an innovative way to familiarize themselves with Hindi language through the hinglish project which is India Incredible initiative. A font design that super imposes roman letter on hindi character, tries to make it easy for tourists to read and interpret the meaning hindi script, though it may not help completely to improve hindi speaking skills.

In my opinion it is still a good start to help tourists because Hindi is not primary language spoken across states and reading sign boards on highway and cities in local languages makes it more difficult. This ad below commissioned by DDB Mudra Group also won gold lion award at Cannes Lions 2012 function.

Saving the culture of Street Painting in India

Growing up to the sight of hand painted banners of advertisements and movie posters is embedded in our art culture and almost synonymous to street art of our country. As times progressed digital printing replaced this form of art now on the verge of being phased out completely. You would hardly spot hand painted banners across city skylines or walls and the artists who nurtured this skill are facing hard times.

HandPaintedType is one such project that aims to preserve the typographic art of street painters of India, this initiative is documenting and digitizing their typefaces which is a really encouraging concept, you can visit this site here for more details, We never happened to notice this missing piece of fading trend, if not preserved our upcoming generations would never be able to identify themselves with this form of art.

Stunning Illustration of Lord Ganesha

I really liked this illustration of Lord Ganesha made by an artist from Thailand Saryth Chareonpanichkul, he has put up interesting collection of mythological illustrations.

Most images of Lord Ganesha depict him in serene form, this one looks more like the raudra swaroop of Ganesha. Check out the Deviant Gallery of this artist.
