Stefan Kanchev, Forever!
Posted at 04:11 PM


DAYWRECKER WARNING: Hell, this link could ruin a career. I mean, it’s the kind of link that makes a motherfucker like myself just want to throw the towel in on all of it. I mean, this kind of design excellence, it is almost too painful to even look at. Or something. I stopped making sense a couple sentences back.

Just be warned. This is the kind of link that could make you hang it all up. Man. Incredible.

Here we go. Take a deep breath, and be strong when clicking this link: The incredible Stefan Kanchev.

And there I was yesterday, dumber than hell, wondering about the image I poached from Eric Baker, stumped, in the dark. And all the time, it was Mr. Kanchev! Funny how this stuff goes.

The “LOGOS” section on his site is one thing, and hell, I don’t even know where to start there. But man, the “OTHERS” section is where I really lost my shit. Be careful in there. There goes the day, and the weekend, and hell, after messing with that kind of greatness, you might just find yerself in the unemployment line, starting over.

Feel small with us in the shadow of Mr. Kanchev!

Really, really great.

(Thank you to Jeremy Lanningham for sending this in, and basically shaking my foundation some. Seriously. This guy is something to aspire to, you know, for my line of work. Thanks, Boise!)

WHEN IN MINNEAPOLIS…: A stop at Axman is mandatory. So read about Justin Peddycoat’s latest visit at the link right up before these words. Good work, man!

WAY TO GO, BERNIE: Bernie Madoff “Madoff” with 65 billion bucks, and I made a little poster with him and shit shit-eating grin on it for a TDC poster show in NYC earlier this summer. They’re still talking about those posters, which is cool as hell, but kinda sad, cuz more or less, America is in trouble. Anyhoo.

Here you go: “One Year Later: The art of the collapse.”

Will Staehle made a poster too! Fellow student from MCAD! One of the nicest kids I met there. Golden. Hell yes, Will!

KINDA COOL, KINDA NO BIG WHUP, KINDA AWESOME, KINDA DON’T CARE: Pavement is reuniting for a show in New York City in a year, and I don’t know how to feel about it. Snarky fuckers, but man, I love those tunes.

So after I emailed you those links, I checked out your site and thought you had got to the link before me. I stand corrected. Amazing for sure. Mr. Kanchev’s logos and marks reminded me of yours so i sent the link. Good shit man seriously. Keep up the good work.

It’s funny, somehow calling them logos (Kanchev) doesn’t seem right, doesn’t come close to doin them justice.

Consider the towel thrown.

Yes! I stumbled across this Kanchev link about a month ago and just about lost my gourd.
