25. Do it yourself - Coffee

I've been bored on a train plenty of times, but @pylon_sean used the time well and doodled this beautiful collection of coffee inspired type.

26. Do it yourself - Fireworks

This photo by @nessdonnelly shows that you don't need to hire expensive sign writers. You can do it yourself and probably still sell plenty of fireworks.

27. Page one - Hemmingway

You might judge a book by its cover, but how's the typography on the first page? GraphicDesign& asked for people's favourite page ones and @jenniferleith sent in this great example.

28. Page one - Design Connoisseur

You'd expect a good page one from a book on type and this page tweeted by @twentysixtypes doesn't disappoint.

29. Logos - Fortnum & Mason

Some logos are just a symbol, but some like this logo tweeted by @bellamanfield rely on the qualities and feeling of the typeface to portray everything needed about the brand.

30. Logos - Marshall

This Marshall logo tweeted by @mwkdesigns shows again that sometimes all you need is a good font to make an iconic brand.
