I just came across this recently and was convinced it was a hoax, but apparently this poster was actually posted around London bus routes around October, 2002 in the civil-liberties crushing wake of 9/11. The imagery is shocking to say the least; shocking mostly for the fact that someone, somewhere actually thought this was a good idea. I would love to have been in on the design discussion during the production of this Orwellian gem. Who actually creates this stuff? Did anyone see it when it was up? More info
I always love finding new poster designers and Aisleone just turned me on to a great one. Berlin-based Double Standards produce some very nice poster work and posses some incredible typography skills. Check them out here.
I’ll be headed to Chicago in May for a show (details coming soon) so I thought it would be a good time to post these great posters which were part of a cultural series for the city of Chicago. I need to get a hold of a bunch of prints like these in A1 format and just line my walls.
Grain Edit posted up some Jacques Auriac posters along with the video below. These are really amazing, it’s a shame there doesn’t seem to be any higher res scans around the net. There are some more shots from an Auriac book over at Grain Edit’s original post.
Jakub posted some stills from the upcoming Where The Wild Things Are movie a while back and now we have a very nice movie poster to go with them. This thing is looking better and better with each new development.
Our very own Alex Cornell designed this poster for the live 2 hour solo acoustic set he’ll be playing this Thursday at the California Academy of Science in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. Be there! His set is part of the Nightlife series featuring a lecture by WIRED magazine.
Edit: Unfortunately, it looks like it’s sold out.
Edit #2: Apparently there are tickets to be had at the door. Just make sure to show up a bit early…
I’ve been seeing these 2 Periodic Tables floating around, the larger version of the typeface one is pretty fun to look over and I guess the Photoshop CS shortcuts one is a poster and there’s also ones for Illustrator and InDesign as well.
