Bryan Stewart Reader Find

By Bryan Stewart in New Events on Tuesday 21 August 2012

I love Channel 4’s work, all created by its in-house agency, 4creative. This poster is great, straight to the point in an irreverent, fun way. It’s part of the bigger campaign – Meet the Superhumans – which kicked off their campaign as the official broadcaster of the London Paralympic Games.

Keep Calm and Tear it Down poster by Rajeev Basu

Rajeev Basu Reader Find

By Rajeev Basu in New Design on Wednesday 1 August 2012

Your portrait as a heroic Chinese propaganda poster

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Design on Friday 11 May 2012

Brainwash visitors to your apartment with a personalised Maopost reproduced propaganda painting now starring you as a socialist hero. Avid poster collectors Pierre Lavigne and Pierre Budestschu are the ones behind the business and promises to hire ‘freelance professional Chinese artists’ and not ‘“painting factories” and their salaried artists’. These oil paintings cost anywhere from US$199 to US$269. We reckon it’s a fairly reasonable price to plant yourself in history.

Movie poster designs by Austin-based Mondo

Josef Buchanan Reader Find

By Josef Buchanan in New Design on Wednesday 9 May 2012

Austin’s Mondo is described via their Facebook page as follows: ‘If we have to explain what we are, you wouldn’t understand’. Which I guess is true in many ways, but the bottom line is they showcase numerous artistic renditions of movie posters, which span everything from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre to Duck Dodgers and the 24 1/2th Century, and everything in-between. Apparently the posters sell out within minutes, and sometimes even seconds, but you can still check out the archive and eventually pick up your jaw from the ground after viewing all of the awesome work that has beed done.

Project to create identity posters for each American State

Josh Best Reader Find

By Josh Best in New Design on Saturday 10 March 2012

This ambitious side project seeks to encapsulate state identities by creating a poster for each state. It’s the combination of two nerdy passions: geography and delicious design. I think it’s high time someone spent some effort merging them together. Find your state and let us know if you think it’s an accurate depiction.

I love the colours and concept in this artwork by Maher Diab. Of the idea behind the poster, he says: ‘Jesus gave up on us and he’s out of plans to make things right. He came in peace 2000 years back. Now it’s time for Plan B’.
