Thomas Yang, from the website 100 copies is definitely a very creative bike aficionado. We have previously shared his original creations here, such as his iconic Empire State Building using seven types of bicycle tire tracks. This time we like to share with you a new series of awesome bike-related posters. Inspired by popular internet emojis Yang used different bicycle parts to create his own “Bikemojis”. The result is a series of posters that are both simple and fun. He only made 100 copies of this gorgeous poster.As with all of his projects Yang only prints 100 copies of his designs, which can be purchased on his website.
The Ecuadorian movie Cadaver Destruído (Destroyed Corpse) was inspired by the surreal exercise known as the exquisite corpse, where the collective participation of different members help to shape the final art piece. In this case 120 participants send a series of 30 seconds videos that were assembled together to create a surreal film. Nobody knows what the other participants sent or what the final result will look like. To promote the film Ecuatorian designer and Poster Master Mario Fuentes created a whimsical poster that has been shared all over social media featuring everything from local celebrities to hard-core fans on top of a mountain holding the poster to show their support for the project. What do you think about this project? Are you curious to see the movie? And what do you think about the poster?? Share your thoughts with us on the comments below!
This is a brilliant concept from Brooklyn-based designer Roland Tiangco. Not only is this piece highly interactive, but the interactive element itself compliments the message beautifully. According to Roland, this is the first in an upcoming series of posters so we’ll be sure to monitor his progress and keep you updated!
Omid Asadi is a designer currently living in Manchester, England. He created this beautiful and creative poster series with carving and cutting techniques on actual fallen leaves using a craft knife and a needle. Asadi explains his work like this:
“I always try to create pieces with a message, not just beautiful art. Some of these messages or ideas come from my world view, poems, stories, global problems and philosophy. I’m also inspired by other artists’ and designers’ works. I believe that we look at many things everyday, but don’t SEE them. For example, apples had been falling from trees for thousands of years, but only Isaac Newton truly saw that and, thanks to him, our lives have changed forever.“
We are in love with his images. What do you think? Do you know artists or designers who do similar work?
Today we want to share a publication from It’s Nice That about the work of Koos Breen. Koss is a Dutch graphic designer and fine artist who has been experimenting with different printing techniques and 3D methods to create these highly aestheticized and innovating images.
A great poster with an ever better backstory! Erik Brandt told Typographica the interesting story about a poster he created for an exhibition which was rejected. Brandt chooses to leave the organizers of the exhibition anonymous and explains:
“I was recently invited to exhibit a piece for ‘World Graphic Day’ in an unnamed country. The invitation described a rather short deadline of seven days, but it was the following admonition which provided a tempting opportunity: According to (unnamed country’s) rules, your poster must not have any sexual content or carry any nudity concept (sic). How could I resist?”
He then created the typographic poster featured above, with the ironic text: “This Poster does not communicate any sexual content or attempt any suggestion of nudity”. The poster was rejected for the competition, but the best part was the reason why, which Brandt recalls:
“I find this rejection perfectly fascinating and appropriate given the law of the land. One organizer, very kindly and with apologies, explained that it could not be exhibited because of the word “sexual.” I find it somehow wonderful that this word, which must exist in that language and must be used to prohibit its use (in both the law and the design brief), becomes an issue, despite its clear negation here. That being said, I must admit that this was an intentional provocation on my part, and I consider it a success in that regard.”
Mexican designer Renato Aranda created this poster as a tribute for Rafael López Castro, considered by many as the father of poster design in Mexico. The poster reads” Mystery & Creation” in a playful reference to the iconic image of the Virgin of Guadalupe.
