Jason Munn: «Minimalistic Graphic Designs»

16 Jun

Ein Plakat, das mit wenigen Strichen die Quintessenz eines ganzen Films beschreibt: das ist im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes «Großes Kino». Jason Munn wurde von Alamo Drafthouse damit beauftragt, eine Plakatserie für ihre monatliche Texas Monthly Rolling Roadshow zu erstellen, die sich auf Kinofilme spezialisiert, die vorwiegend in Texas spielen. Hier gibt es alle Motive zu sehen. Grain Edit hat mit Jason Munn noch ein aufschlußreiches Interview über seine Arbeit geführt.

Tribute to Museum-of-Modern-Art-Director Alfred Barr – By Daniel Feral: «History Of How Art Is Influencing Art (1940 – 2010)»

27 May

The «see conference» is about visualising information. The results are becoming more and more artifical. Charts look more and more like paintings from Fernand Léger for example. Or a psychedelic drawing from Klaus Voormann. And it’s getting more and more complicated to understand what it’s all about. The less a chart is understandable the less I feel responsible for understanding it – and the more I like it. Therefore, the one above is really, really great! Visit also Pantheon.

Schöne Filmplakatkunst

4 Mar

Ich kann nur spekulieren: Es ist ein Film aus den 1970er Jahren, hochwertige und laszive Ennio-Morricone-Pornofilmmusik dringt durch die Gehörgänge und massiert unsere Gefühlswelt. Popcorntüten werden herumgereicht: Intellektuelle schmatzen sich im Programmkino den Vietnamkrieg von der Seele, während die Hauptdarsteller beim Vögeln darüber sinnieren, ob ein Apfel, wenn er sich Mühe gibt, auch zu einer Birne werden könne. Jörgen Bergmark ist der Regisseur und Jens Jonsson schrieb das Drehbuch. Hier gefunden.

Anti-Shoe-Proclamation Looks Like Movie Poster

5 Feb

What the major shoe companies don’t want you to know. The only question is: What is it what the major shoe companies do not want us to know… Ah: «Shoes Are Bad». Well, but there is a long story of manufacturing shoes in mankind’s history…without any major shoe companies. Anyway, nice artwork!

Unevolved Brands by Graham Smith

5 Feb

Unevolving a logo to just a series of coloured circles, how many can still be recognised? This study by Graham Smith shows how the most simplest of logo and brand designs are often the most recognisable when shed of all detail. By the way: here are the answers. But remember: not all logo simplifications are as easy to be recognised as these four examples above.

In most cases, each circle represents one letter or one container. So in the case of Orange, a self contained logo, one circle for the orange container and one circle for the wording. Typebased logos like Twitter, FedEx and eBay just have one circle per letter.

It’s an ongoing study, so new logos and brands will be added.

Helvetica Trade Advertising

20 Nov

So, if you really want to find out all relevant and irrelevant things and stories about the world’s probably most used typeface named Helvetica, you should consider purchasing a copy of Helvetica – A Documentary Film by Gary Hustwit.

And, just in case, you have been asking yourself throughout day and night time within the last twenty years (or so) what for a guy Erik Spiekermann really is; the Helvetica Documentary brings your sleepless day and night times – quite impressingly – to a happily ending end as well.

To me Mr Spiekermann is mentally linked to the subject of typography so heavily that it is very hard to guess what he’s been doing over the weekends
