Rebecca Litchfield Soviet Ghosts 1

It’s not every day people go urban exploring in Russia, but English photographer Rebecca Litchfield did it. Over 10 trips into previously Soviet regions she ducked behind fences, risked radiation exposure, was arrested, interrogated and even accused of espionage – all in the name of documenting the relics of the fallen Soviet Union. Her collection of images and the book she recently published are titled Soviet Ghosts. [Read more...]

Yulia Brodskaya Quilled Illustrations 1

Talented Russian artist Yulia Brodskaya continues to experiment with her illustrative quilling style. Since we covered her work previously, she has continued to explore portraits of the aged, using her curled paper to portray the deeply creased faces of the older generations (it’s a surprisingly good fit). Her latest work doesn’t stick to the page either – many elements climb out of the scene in sculptural 3D. [Read more...]

Act Fast to Take Home a Full-size Reissue of the NYC Transit Authority Graphics Standards Manual

Thanks to travel and every show or movie filmed in The Big Apple from the 70’s through now, the NYC Subway signs are as familiar as an “I Heart NY” T-shirt. Now one of the easiest subway systems to navigate, it wasn’t always that way. In the 60’s there was no uniformity whatsoever and if you weren’t a local you would most likely get lost on the regular. But in 1967 everything changed when Massimo Vignelli and Bob Noorda of the design firm Unimark International were hired by the NYCTA to clean things up. After 3 years of hard work, they delivered the Standards Manual, which is still used today. This manual has become a classic example for modern design across the world. For a limited time (only 350 left at the time of this post), the MTA is allowing graphic designers Jesse Reed & Hamish Smyth to print copies of this design artifact, but only through Kickstarter.

In the next couple of months, a few of Oakland’s buildings will be getting a beautiful face lift. Talented painter, artist, and muralist Joshua Mays will be working on a series of 4 murals which he calls BEACON and hopes to finish by October 1st, 2014. In his signature dreamlike style, with soft colors, rich details, and luscious layers ripe with feminine energy, Mays will transform old buildings into conversation pieces.

California

It’s no secret that we are major fans of our home state, California, and this new time-lapse from Hal Bergman shows many of the reasons why. Bergman, a fellow native of the Golden State, spent 4 years shooting the Vimeo Staff Picked video, often spending 1-3 hours at each location (and sometimes up to 24) to create the final 67 clips that made this final cut. He visits both out of the way places like Joshua Tree and Death Valley, and familiar spots like San Francisco and Yosemite. Watch and enjoy. [Read more...]
