A nice advertising series for Siemens extractor fans by Ogilvy. The photoshopped flat kitchens give a sense of cooking outdoors where all the steam and smells from cooking can magically waft away.
I really like this poster series for the Newcastle Festival of Dance by Amy Rodchester. Polygon blocks were created at varying heights and arranged in a chessboard type pattern and topped by images of dancing feet. The arrangement then was photographed giving a slightly uneven pattern. The black and white photos of old fashioned shoes and the pastel tones give a nice vintage touch to what would otherwise be a very modern poster.
Nicholas Felton has released his annual Feltron report. This report covers both 2010 and 2011, as the 2010 Feltron report was a chronicle of the life of Nicholas’ father. As usual the report is expertly crafted and presented. The focus is specifically on the locations he visited over the two year period.
The Guardian has a collection of the 10 most expensive movie posters. Expensive not in production, but in the value of the physical poster to a collector. Most of these are great examples of vintage horror movie illustrations, but also include the beautiful Metropolis design. I love the custom type on these posters, and there are some great compositions and perspectives.
Swissted is a great project by Mike Joyce, combining two of his great loves; punk rock and Swiss modernism. The result are modern punk, rock and indie posters produced in the sixties Swiss style using Akzidenz Grotesk. Here are some of my favourites, there are plenty more on the Swissted site. It would be great to see the original poster to compare style and see whether the Swissted design is an abstraction of the original, or completely different.
