Handy Links 7

THIS WEEK'S LINKS include a wooden iPhone amp, an iPad case with built-in keyboard, great advice from a veteran designer and a pack of font reference documents.


Koostik Wooden iPhone Dock

Forget batteries. The Koostik is a gorgeous, $85 hardwood iPhone amplifier which works like a guitar body, amplifying sound naturally and acoustically.


ZAGGmate iPad Case & Keyboard

I love this $70 aluminum case that snaps on the iPad, with a $100 version featuring a built-in keyboard. (currently pre-order.)


Do You REALLY Want to be a Design “Rock Star?”

Excellent essay by veteran designer Speider Schneider on success, humility, doing great work and focusing on what's important in life.


Type Education at FontShop

I love this cache of beautiful and educational PDF font references from FontShop. Load 'em up on your iPad for the holidays!

P.S. I've changed Handy Links in this 7th episode, simplifying the title and including teaser images with each link. Hope you like the tweaks. Thanks Jordie van Rijn for your ideas!
