I love a good infographic, and when they are executed by illustrators like Matt Taylor, Tom Whalen, and Kevin Tong you know they are gonna be amazing. Below are just a few of the geeky images that these three (info-rama) have teamed up with Mondo to do an art show specifically about infographics. Not just any infographics. Infographics for your inner geek, ranging from Star Wars, to Batman, to the Avengers and beyond. If you live in Austin, you might want to head over to Mondo Gallery on June 24 at 7pm for the Inforama opening. It looks like it is going to be a pretty fun show.
This is a great little video showing the prep for a photo shoot that was done to promote Atipo’s new font cassannet, based on the style of lettering seen on cassandre posters from the 1930’s. The have recreated the famous poster triptych “dubo, dubon, dubonnet”.
The photos are great, and the video showing ho they got the shots is equally as fun and really well shot and edited.
When I got to work this morning this image was in my email inbox. While the language might offend some of you, the basic sentiment shouldn’t. At the end of the day, I don’t know a single designer that hasn’t dropped the F-Bomb during some point in their career. This limited edition hand silk screened poster pretty much sums up everything a designer should know, think, and do.
This limited edition, three-color poster measures 18×24 inches. It’s hand silkscreened on 100lb cover French PopTone paper and available for $35.00 here.
The Bottom of poster reads: Good Fucking Design Advice aims to serve the needs of the greater design community for the common good. Whether you’re a student unable to receive a timely response from a professor, a designer eagerly awaiting feedback from a vacationing art director, or a sheltered freelancer lonely toiling away in her studio apartment, Good Fucking Design Advice will provide you with immediate unbiased assistance 24/7.
Lately I have been watching Mad Men seasons 1 through 4 on Netflix. With Season 5 delayed until January 2012 I’ve been jonesing for the show just a bit, and I decided to watch the first for seasons over. I’m actually really glad that I have. I am catching all sorts of things this time around that I either missed or forgot over the last 4 and a half years.
The real reason I am posting about Mad Men has nothing to do with my TV viewing habits. What it does have to do with are these great posters from Cape Town-based design studio Radio. I have no idea if these are going to be used to promote Mad Men for the AMC network, but if not they should. The posters have a really nice retro feel to them without being to period. At times they feel older than the decade that Mad Men is set in, but that doesn’t bother me that much. They have a great illustrative style and the execution is really well done.
