1-Ale Giorgini BIGLEBOWSKI_poster

Sometimes it takes a masterful attention to detail in order to simplify things. Illustrator Ale Giorgini seems to have this talent, taking the most epic movies and distilling them down to group shots of their most iconic characters in simplified form. The surprising part after whittling these flicks down to size? Each character is still completely recognizable. [Read more...]

Creative Catharsis: Posters of Strange Client Quotes

Monday 11.12.2012 , Posted by

Despite the fact that many people do it for the creative aspects, design is often a customer service job. So, as with all work serving peoples needs, there are always clients with some unusual, if misguided requests. This collection of fun A3 posters was collectively made by Irish ad creatives, designers, animators, directors, and illustrators in their time off. The series, appropriately called A Creative Catharsis, transforms frustrating yet hilariously memorable client quotes into posters. [Read more...]

Saturday 11.10.2012 , Posted by

It’s been a massively challenging election year, with plenty of twists, turns and mud thrown along the way. Now with Obama in the White House for another 4 years, his supporters are still celebrating the victory… but it isn’t just Americans who are doing the rejoicing, or who helped him stay in power. A large portion of the world population supported Obama this election, with people from Africa to Europe hoping for his re-election. Greek graphic designer Charis Tsevis was one of these people.

Compendium of Shapes You Forgot From Geometry Class

Tuesday 10.30.2012 , Posted by

The folks over at Pop Chart Labs have done it again, producing another extensive, poster-based charting of beautiful information. This time though, rather than focusing on beer breweries or even celebrity hairstyles, they are getting geometric. Their new florescent design, The Synoptic Scheme of Shapes, points out just how much we all slept through geometry class… or maybe it just shows how much fun shapes can be when you aren’t getting tested later. My favorite part? I finally figured out the name of my long-time favorite shape: a superellipse. [Read more...]

The small city of Cremona, in northern Italy, was recently taken over by a large collection of very designerly poster art.

Philosophy Posters: Beautiful and Inspiring Words

Tuesday 05.22.2012 , Posted by

Sometimes all it takes for us to have that ‘aha’ moment, that revelatory kernel of truth that wakes us up and sends us in the right direction, is one sentence spoken clearly and concisely. These posters do just that, capturing some of the wisdom written by the great philosophers that have gone before us, those who explored the far boundaries of human understanding and wisdom. The bold, black and white typography against a newsprint like halftone, is just the right look for such truthful statements strongly said. [Read more...]

Horse: Graphic Illustrator from UK

Friday 05.04.2012 , Posted by

Gig posters are made every day by a number of independent artists. Displaying bands for shows and festivals, gig posters take on all sorts of creative concepts and looks. Over the years this art form has developed from its earliest renditions as hand-scribbled announcements, to psychedelic prints from the sixties promoting bands such as Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jefferson Airplane. Today, in a world that often copies that classic era, these designs really stand out. [Read more...]
