'Around the World' - Colourful Modern Vintage Posters Designed by Bo Lundberg

"Around the world, cities and countries" is the full title for these gloriously colouful modern vintage posters, designed by the talented Swedish illustrator, Bo Lundberg.

These 1960's Swedish inspired posters make me feel so happy when looking at them, and I was immediately drawn to them when I first spotted them on Bo's Pinterest board.

I'm also taken back to the gorgeous 1960's Air Canada poster that I posted a while back, when I see these posters from Bo. That's a very good thing by the way.

Around the world, cities and countries: Every now and then Bo tries to find time to come up with interpretations of different cities and countries.

He first imagined that he was a designer during the sixties who had been commissioned to design travel posters.

And if I'm not mistaken, that could quite well be Helvetica…

40 Pantone Superhero and Villains Color Swatch Poster

Some time ago I posted: 9 RGB Inspired Posters for Superhero's by Gidi Vigo, which was a pretty simple, but rather neat idea.

Gidi then had the idea of expanding this idea of linking Pantone colours with those representative of many more comic book superheros and villains.

So in this next poster, Gidi has created one poster with 40 individual Pantone swatches that are neatly tied in with the colours best associated with comic book superheros and villains.

5 Phrases Of Massimo Vignelli: 'Vignelli Forever' Set in Helvetica

Gorgeous set of posters, entitled: Vignelli Forever, by Anthony Neil Dart using Helvetica, of course!. Anthony has designed one main poster summing up five well-known phrases, and quotes, by Massimo Vignelli, then a further five posters each displaying one of the five phrases.

These have been floating around for a few years now, but really do like them and felt another airing would be worthwhile. Decided to keep the jpg files as high-resolution as possible, rather than downsampling, to keep the pretty small fine-print as legible as possible. Let's see how well MaxCDN, CloudFlare, W3 Cache and BJ Easy Load work together to reduce this pages download speed/size!

I'd really like to get my hands on a set of these, they look so smart! The Vignelli Forever posters were originally found via AdWeek, in their Talent Gallery.

The five Massimo Vignelli phrases are:

  1. One life is too short for doing everything.
  2. We like design to be visually powerful, intellectually elegant and above all timeless.
  3. If you can design one thing, then you can design everything.
  4. If you do it right, it will last forever.
  5. The life of a designer is a life of fight against the ugliness.

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

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.

There is also another project page on Alain's Behance profile with yet more James Bond Fan Art posters!

Nice find by Gruber over on DaringFireball

Helvetica Exploded Poster

A2 Helvetica Exploded Poster from PrintHandBook.com

Really digg'n this A2 Helvetica Exploded Poster from PrintHandBook.com For only £12 you get this wonderfully artsy Helvetica print that is separated into eight segments.

This should look rather cool on your design studio wall, or bathroom if you perv over things like this.

The Helvetica posters are printed using Pantone 899, silver metallic ink, on 250gsm Burgandy Keaykolour stock.

Each poster, as mentioned above, is made up of eight A5 cards which when combined—ensure there is a 10mm gap between each one—produce a poster that is slightly larger than A2.

As well as the Helvetica Exploded Poster there is a Bodoni and Cooper Black Exploded version. You can buy all three for just £30.

RGB Superhero Posters by Gidi Vigo

Pantone Superhero Posters by Gidi Vigo—which you can view more over on Artflakes—Nine posters for nine superheroes.

One of those annoyingly simple, and quite possibly useless ideas, that still somehow peeks ones curiosity just because it involves Pantone, and Superheros. I mean, what could go wrong?

Why didn't I think of?

You can purchase these posters over at Artflakes, and I honestly think they'd look pretty fine all framed up and hooked up onto my studio wall.

There is also a new poster project by Gidi, called: 40 Pantone Superhero and Villains Color Swatch Poster




You may already be familiar with Aaron Kuehn's typographic work if you have previously seen the Bicycle Typogram? Strategically placed words to form a bigger picture. Easy to give it a quick glance and move on, but just look at how the skull, for instance, has been formed to create a very clear visual outline from just skeletal words; it really is pretty impressive stuff.

The component bones, ordinarily constructed with rigid mineralized tissues, have been entirely typo-grammatically replaced with 676 free and fused glyphs, together forming a complete skeletal diagram in Latin.

Should one like then one can order prints of the Skeleton and Bicycle Typogram by visiting the link below.
