ANTI-DESIGN FESTIVAL ///

I was really happy to receive this email about the London Anti-Design Festival. It’s about time someone decided to shake things up a bit and we’re planing on doing our part to help out in any way we can. Read the info below and share with friends, colleagues, collaborators, professors, students, etc., especially those in...

WARHOL x GREATNESS ///

Late last year some prints done by Andy Warhol for his friend Richard Weisman were stolen from the owner’s home. The actual Polaroids that Warhol took, which inspired the prints themselves went on display at Danziger Projects last year in an exhibit titled Greatness.

TRUTH DESIGN ///

Truth Design is a UK design studio/consultancy. They’ve created a great body of work. I especially like the invitation for the Reebok Pump relaunch event, shown above. Milton Glaser recently agreed to design a #4 that the studio will use to create posters in celebration of their 4 year anniversary. I’m jealous.

LIGHTING THE SAILS ///

This has been everywhere and if you’ve been avoiding it you should just quit it and watch. The new spot for Nike Football (yes, of course it’s soccer, but you knew that already didn’t you) by W+K Amsterdam is inspiring, entertaining and best of all, reminds us why the world loves this game so much....

SEPTEMBERINDUSTRY ///

Amazing poster over at SeptemberIndustry

QUODDY ///

Quoddy has been hand-making leather boots and shoes for over 100 years in Maine. It just doesn’t get any better than this in terms of quality.

GRAFILU ///

I just came across these amazing illustrations over at the New Yorker this morning. Come to find out they were done by Pascal Staub, who works under the moniker Grafilu. I’m so glad I saw these, Pascal’s drawings are really incredible. I don’t know that I can compare to them to much else I’ve seen....

SUPERMUNDANE ///

Another really great portfolio from the UK. This time the work of design/illustrator Rob Lowe (A.K.A. Supermundane).

ROSE BLAKE ///

Lately I’ve been fancying the drawings and illustration work of Rose Blake. There’s major talent in the UK…someone get me one of those Draw More shirts! PS – Thanks to Andy Chen for introducing me to Rose’s work.
