Another Fucking Motivational Poster that Uses Fuck a Fucking Lot


There's this Reddit thread, based on this motivational poster, designed by Mike Winkelman aka Beeple, discussing the various merits and demerits of so called 'motivational posters' that use the Fuck word.

I for one like the word Fuck, and use it quite a bit in day-to-day use, but not in a vulgar crass way. Usually it's a Fuck it, or Fuck that, kind of thing.

 

Motivational Poster Design

 

Anyway, you might find this motivational poster has a few to many fucks, but I like the general idea of it.

You can see it, and/or buy it from Society6 below:

It's also similar to the pretty well known website, and some say, the Original and Best: Good Fucking Design Advice

Good Fucking Design Advice

 

 

 

Reddit being Reddit, someone decided this wasn't grammatically correct, so designed one that supposedly is, below.

I'm no grammar expert, so cannot vouch for it's accuracy.

However, I'm not a fan of the fucking typography; more so the spacing and kerning leaves a lot to be desired.

So… here's a quick one I knocked up:



8 Bit Quit Smoking Advert in Arcade Breakout Style Designed by Unknown


8 Bit Pixel Quit Smoking Advert in Arcade Breakout Style Designed by Unknown

This cool Quit Smoking Advert, themed on the classic 8 bit arcade Breakout game, has been floating around for a while.

I first saw it on Reddit, and tweeted it:

 

Unfortunately this is one of those occasions where good intentions: to spread and share someones great work and to promote the Quit Smoking message, ends up forgetting the designer, and we are left with these images by 'unknown'.

Often a quick search on Google will provide the answers, but in this case I can't seem to find the designer responsible.

I've gone through all the Reddit comments to try and find a link, but so far nothing. It's been shared, and Pinned so many times…

If anyone knows who designed it, then please do let me know.

Recreated in A3

As the original image is quite small 499 x 666px (below), I decided to 'recreate' it as faithfully as possible (above), except to change the font to Helvetica Neue Heavy, just because…

 

The Quit Smoking Breakout Arcade Game

As is often the case with the Reddit community, a Reddit user: sunsetandlabrea decided to make a working game of this.

Unfortunately long gone, there is a YouTube video of the game in action…



There’s no such thing as a Nintendo Poster from 1990


I love this vintage Nintendo poster so much, put out by a desperate Nintendo of America Inc, way back in 1990.

Such a classic, and shows how times change when it comes to brand names becoming nouns.

 

There's no such thing as a Nintendo Poster from 1990

 

You see, "Nintendo" is an adjective, not a noun.

There's the Nintendo Entertainment System.® There's the Nintendo ® game software. And there's Nintendo Power TM magazine.

But there's no such thing as a Nintendo.

You see, "Nintendo" is an adjective, not a noun.

It is our registered trademark that identifies the high quality products that marketed and licensed by Nintendo of America Inc.

So please use out trademark carefully.

And never use it generically to describe all video game products.

We thank you. Mario thanks you.

Apollo 13 Limited Edition Poster Designed by Justin Van Genderen


This Apollo 13 poster, designed by Justin Van Genderen, is absolutely gorgeous. Justin designed this Apollo poster as part of his: Location, Location, Location series, which you can view on Behance.

You can but limited edition prints via Print Shop, at a cost of $35. You'll get an Edition #2, 16" x 24" screen print, with a 2-3 week delivery window.

I initially found this on Reddit, and it's really become a very popular post.

Other Reddit users have been posting various other versions of this poster, even links to more historically useful bits of information relating to Apollo 13. Also see bottom of this post for a nice little animated version.

Go Reddit…

Massively Large Collection of Completely Textless Movie Posters


I've picked out a few of my favourites from this Massively Large Collection of Completely Textless Movie Posters, that have been amended/recreated without any of original posters text/wording whatsoever.

There are over 80 different movie posters in the original collection, 80 Hi-resTextless Posters, over on Imgur (originally credited to by http://joinyouinthesun.imgur.com).

I would love to know more about how these film posters were edited, and if indeed, it was by the same person or by a number of individuals. Not to much information on the source links, so if anyone has any information?

You'll see over in the original collection that many of the textless movie posters are of the illustrative style: Indiana Jones, Starwars etc, which minus the text and wording, really allows you to see the detail and styles in each poster.

Personally not for me; I prefer the photographic, and/or finer art styles as I've shown below. That's not to say the illustrative posters are bad, just a sign of the times that photo realisism is where it's 'mostly' at.

Steve Jobs Tribute Typographic Poster Designed by Oliver Gareis


Steve Jobs Tribute Typographic Poster Designed by Oliver Gareis

This Steve Jobs Tribute Typographic Poster has to be one of the best graphic design tributes I've seen in a while. Oliver Gareis has done an outstanding job of mixing and matching a whole bunch of typographic styles, into something really rather elegant and stylish.

In basic type theory (using more than a few font styles in one layout etc) it should be a mess, but it just seems to work so well.

It might not be to everyones taste, but I love it.

You must go over to Oliver's Behance profile: Steve Jobs Famous Quote Typography to view the original project, and to also watch a time lapse video of the posters development.

Steve Jobs Tribute Typographic Poster

Oliver explains how this came to be, and how long it took:

About one year ago I started this project, when the agency where I work full time decided that they want to pimp their office.

We brainstormed on what to do, and finally decided to write a quote on the wall of someone who is an inspiration to all of us, namely Steve Jobs.

So I sat down, took some time of reconsidering and picked a truly inspiring quote of him. First, I started drawing everything on paper.

Secondly, I scanned everything and assembled the four A4 sized papers into one piece with Illustrator.

It was a lot of hard work to create this illustration but it was definitely worth it. After I finished the illustration I drew the piece on our office wall.

It took me about 20 days spread over 4 month to finish this drawing. I would really appreciate it if you can take a look on the time lapse video to see my work."
