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. » Source: Gary Nicholson
The work that Paul Rogers turns out inspires me no end. There are many more examples of Paul’s work over on his website.
Pantone Superhero Posters by Gidi Vigo—which you can view more over on Artflakes—is one of those incredibly annoying ideas that one can’t quite understand how one didn’t think of it.
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;… Read More →

The concept was: Take a letter of an alphabet, looking for a selection of 10 cities in the world that starts with this letter, say which languages are spoken in these places, say where are you from and which is your language. It was a research project around the concept of the TRAVELLING.
Just came across this amazing posters on Behance by Justin Van Genderen. I am a super fan of condensed typefaces and love seeing them displayed on posters such as this. Works really well.
Just some silliness on my behalf. Some of these self promotional ‘posters’ or ‘waste of space’ designs have been around a short while, but the snow one is a new one just out today.

Continuing my series of Helvetica based TV and Movie posters (Silence of the Lambs and Stargate Atlantis), I proudly bring you House M.D. once of my most watched TV shows. Love the character, love the acting, the humour, the banter and the various personality conflicts.
