I’ll always be a sucker for “Cold War Design” its usually the color then the paper that does it for me. Makes me want to tear down walls in old Polish apartments to look for printed patterns on decaying dry wall.
UK illustrator Neil Stevens a.k.a. crayonefire designed these beautiful prints inspired by vintage flight and baggage tags.
Beautiful handmade collages from Bryan Olson aka Glass Planet.
Awhile back we featured a Tumblr called Geometry Daily by German designer Tilman, which has since then become quite popular among many of us that enjoy minimal-geometric designs. So popular in fact, that Tilman says he has been receiving quite a few requests for the use of his designs:
In the last months many people asked if they could use some of the Geometry Daily graphics. As a logo, a cover for their music release, desktop background, even as a tattoo. In fact so many that it became a pain to send it all out manually. And I love to get my graphics out and let them be used!
To cope with the overwhelming response and demand, he has decided to make available for purchase, download and non-commercial use (although you can pay more to use a design commercially) of his Geometry Daily source files, which will be released in monthly installments and set at €69 euro or roughly $100 US dollars.
You get the complete data of all the Geometry Daily posts of a certain month. For each graphic this is:
- A higher resolution JPG (1770 x 1770 px)
- The fully layered Photoshop file (.PSD, same resolution)
- The clean vectors in an Illustrator file (.AI)

I recently travelled back to Santiago, Chile (where I grew up) for one of my best friends wedding, and while there I was amazed by how many good local bands I was exposed to and how good of a music scene that city has.
Amongst them was Zebra, a dream-wave trio formed by DJ/Producer Sebastian Roman (Roman/MKRNI), Miguel Irarrazaval (Treboles) and Enrique Escala (Treboles), who with their first EP “AD Portas I” caught the attention of Picnic Kubun’s label Endemika Records. I was instantly blown away by the level of sophistication in their arrangements and catchy hooks, not to mention how virtuosos they are in regards to live instrumentation, so when they asked me to design an album cover for their upcoming release, I was honored (I’m also working on an official music video…more on that later).
Today, Zebra unveiled the title track of that release, which carries the name of “Summer Love” and is set to drop early March, 2013.
