826LA Time Travel Posters v.2

Posted by Alex


826LA has released a second round of Time Travel posters, on sale at their Echo Park Time Travel Mart. You can view the first series on this page as well, just scroll down a touch. Both were created by Los Angelas based illustrator/designer Amy Martin. As Amy notes on her blog, the sans-serifs at work are Turnpike and Featured Item. The script face is Vitrina.

I love both editions — can’t really decide which set I like better. I think they each have their strong points; for me, the illustrations of the first series and the typography of the second are the standout features. If there were some way to make a super amazing hybrid of the two I’d be all for it. At the end of the day, they are both great — terrific concept and strong execution.

I really dig the first one; I like the prehistoric theme and how it gradually fades into darkness towards the bottom. I can actually visualize this one handing in my place.

Thanks, Alex. I’m with you on the illustrations on the first set and type on the second.

Is it just me, or is the arrow wrong on the Bushido print? I understand artistic license, but I don’t know that my inner samurai can let it fly.

Did they stretch “NATURE PARKS” vertically in the first print? I’m not sure, but it doesn’t seem to match the other examples of the typeface. I love Turnpike, but I just can’t get past the funky “S’s”. Something about how they always look like they are tilting to the left 5 degrees or something. Killer prints, though. In my opinion the last one kills it hands down.
