Thought I’d give the blog an early heads up: A new print called "Northern Lights" will be released tomorrow morning at The ISO50 Shop. You can get it early now, the first printing is only 200 and they’ll go fast once the newsletter comes out tomorrow. Get yours now!
All the Computer Arts readers may remember this was the illustration I did for the cover a couple years back. It also ended up as a line of snowboards for K2. I’ll post some pictures of the various formats it saw life as once I get home tonight.
Seen this piece by Yes Studio around a few times but never had a full size version to post until Paddy Duke sent me this one. Very nice stuff going on here, as Paddy points out these are obviously inspired by the Prisma book covers.
"Artwork created for the UK band. Inspiration came in the form of pre-1980s analogue hi-fi equipment. Using a reductive graphic approach, multiple designs were created, colours were mixed by hand and large format prints produced at K2 Screen, London. The resulting artwork was then re-photographed and used as the basis for a sleeve and poster campaign." – Yesstudio.co.uk
This was a poster from Arcade Fire’s Neon Bible tour that could be folded into what they described as a "shadowbox". Found it while searching for something to post alongside this song. Neon Bible is incredible, I still find it hard to believe they outdid themselves after 2004′s Funeral, but here we are.

Very nice colors from an old BOAC campaign. Could do without the clouds and the airplane but I suppose a concept like that would never make it past the marketing people without some of the obvious thrown in for good measure. Note the BOAC logo that is formed in the middle by the arrows, love it. Great fine print line at the bottom, perfect kerning. Unfortunately no info on the designer, anyone?

Cover of Design Magazine 232; pretty damned clever. I’ve been planning on experimenting with printing then photographing certain elements for projects then recompositing them back into an image. This makes me realize I need to start working on that sooner than later.

File this one under "Things I’d never seen until now but somehow influenced everything I’ve ever done". I suddenly want to move to Massachusetts and work at MIT. This is the sort of design that makes me lament the fact I did not study design in school. How could I have gone all these years practicing design and never been aware of such an amazing talent? Sadly Casey passed away in 1992.
