Eurobus is a series of photographs featuring European tour bus designs by Taylor Holland, which was shot Spring of 2011, while on various bicycle commutes around Paris, France. The series was published by Matmos Press, an independent publisher based in Montreal (QC).
This book is dedicated to the anonymous designers of European tour bus graphics, who have embraced an underappreciated art space and made it their own.
We’ve featured Atelier Olschinsky before for their fantastic photography and I have to bring it back and share the illustration end as well because there’s just soo much to look at and admire. After you’re finished with the work above just take a second and look over their portfolio below, it’s well worth your time.
Great work by Manuel Sepulveda, better known as Optigram, who is a London based graphic designer, art director, and record label owner (Citinite) responsible for many of Hyperdub‘s record-sleeve designs. He’s also apparently worked with Warp and Planet Mu. Really enjoy his use of color and geometric patterns.
These came out beautiful, i’m eyeing the Adonis one, anyone have one of these up at their place?
“A series of informative posters detailing how some of the most notable drum sequences were programmed using the Roland TR-808 Drum Machine. Each sequence has been analyzed and represented as to allow users to re-programme each sequence, key for key.”
I’ve been having a good deal of fun editing on my iPhone lately and its even spilled over into some of my design work. I recently discovered a great little app called Grid Lens (well worth checking out), and created a custom grid for myself of skinny columns (Some inspiration from this painting) and took a sequence of photos of a white wall… It turned out like this (see image above).
I figured I was onto something and brought it into Image Blender (another invaluable app) and started layering it. First horizontally and then diagonally. I ended up with this:
This got me pretty excited, especially because it started with a photo of a white wall… I then layered it over another photo that I mirrored for more symmetry and ended up with this:
I find accidental creativity to be some of the most exciting, especially when it comes together quickly, when you almost cant keep up with it.
A few more examples of the same technique:
I am working on a logo right now and I figured this is great application to try out this same technique. I did it all in illustrator but the inspiration came from a $2 app.
Tools that fit in my pocket fit much better into my life.

Jimmy Turrell launched his new website recently and I spent the evening pouring through his work. Really great stuff, my favorite is this set of designs for Yellowire. Check out the rest of his work here.
