Black Coffee Friday


Black Friday is traditionally known in the US as the start of the holiday shopping season. The day when you set aside all thanks giving and fight your neighbors for the last Nintendo Wii at 5 in the morning to save $30.

Here at DCILY, I’m taking a cue from my friends at Holstee and refusing to partake in the madness. Instead, I’m disabling all the links to our stores and asking you not to buy anything, from anyone. Sleep in, enjoy another black coffee, allow your Thanksgiving dinner to fully digest and spend a bit more time with the ones you love.

To scratch any consumption itch you may have today, I partnered with Simon Ålander to give away wallpapers of his hand-lettered interpretation of “Enjoy Black Coffee.” Instead of buying something new, you can make the things you already own feel that way.

Once you’ve downloaded the appropriate image size onto your device, you should be able to set it as a background image in your preferences.

Enjoy the day and enjoy black coffee.

DCILY has collaborated with Simon from Coffee Made Me Do It, to bring you another awesome coffee shirt to add to your wardrobe this fall. Along with a reprint of the popular “No X in Espresso” shirt from earlier this summer, I’ll begin taking pre-orders at the end of the week for this latest design. Enjoy a sneak peek for now!

Morning Has Broken


Simon Ålander is a Digital Media student at Hyper Island in Stockholm, Sweden. Hyper Island is basically the future of creative education and anyone who attends, will most likely have their choice of opportunities after graduation. Simon emailed me a few months ago with a typography question and recently sent me this—a coffee inspired poster he designed—leading me to believe there’s nothing new I could actually tell him about typography. Incredible work.

I also love his website name, Coffee Made Me Do It.
