With so many self-initiated design projects doing the circuits, it’s a real joy to come across some that are truly inspiring, and not just another ‘minimal’ take on something.
Alain Bossuyt has really done himself proud with these colourful James Bond Fan Art Posters. You can view them over on his Behance profile, and give him an ‘appreciation’ as well whilst you are there.…Read More

Know someone who shares your insatiable lust for Helvetica? Then head over to Bisgràfic and check out their gorgeous Helvetics poster which simply states, “I think you are more perfect than Helvetica”. I would be dead chuffed if someone gifted me this.
For €40 you will get a 300 limited edition run of a 50x70cm offset poster printed in two colours onto 150g/m2 stock. Boom.
That’s one heck of a nerdy compliment!…Read More

Ha. These typographic joke posters by Gary Nicholson are the dogs bollox. Fine puns delivered with devastatingly cool typographic style.
My favourite is: “Get with the Times, New Roman” with “The Carnage was Grotesk, but Akzidenz Happen” coming a very close 2nd.

What a delightful visual treat this 100 Years of Paramount Pictures poster is: celebrating Paramount’s 100th Anniversary in glorious technicoloured icons.
Designed by L.A.’s Gallery 1988.
The poster consists of sweet sweet icons that represent Paramount’s biggest movie releases, so the challenge is to see how many films you can name from those delicious icons.
Would love to know more about the creative process behind this, and how long it took as well, as an idea on how many ideas for each movie icon were tossed around.…Read More

I have a heap of cool links and things to blog about, but this Toy Stories—A Movie Poster Experiment by Jim Tuckwell has been eying me up for about a week now in my FireFox tab.
Time to let it rip.
I am almost lost for words on how best to sum these up. I keep looking at the imagery and just feel these are bloody awesome posters.…Read More

Some minimalist design projects of late have been almost abusing the minimalist tag. In some cases good ideas but let down with poor design & typography execution. However, I am particularly fond of these Minimalist Pixar Posters by Wonchan Lee.
The focus and subject matter of each poster is clear, and in some cases raises a rue smile with wonderfully classy typography styled in the lower right corner.…Read More
