A collection of typography & penmanship found in a book called ‘Speedball – textbook for pen & brush lettering – 18th edition’ (23rd edition available here). As the book I had is rather old, a lot of the type has been cleaned up after it was scanned in. Some lovely penmanship here
“Collecting inspirational analog artifacts to digitize in high fidelity, for all who love letters.”
A fantastic collection of Cuban film posters from the past 50 or so years put together by The Danish Film Institute. I have picked a few favourites but check out the full flickr page as every poster is worth a look [link].
This will certainly be added to my research into film posters for my Honors project at university.
Final year is here. In the run up to Christmas, we have to complete a 1 module project (also known as our Personal Project). It doesn’t have to be about ourselves but we can completely chose what it is about. I am currently researching F1 and the proposed London Grand Prix (read more about that here). To start, I have been looking at f1 identity styles through the years and stumbled upon a vast database of race day programmes. Here are a few of my favourite.
A select few pieces from Tyler Stouts vast library of designs.
And saving my favourite for last
Film posters at their finest. Check out more of Tylers fantastic collection here
“swissted is an ongoing project by graphic designer mike joyce, owner of stereotype design in new york city. drawing from his love of punk rock and swiss modernism, two movements that have (almost) nothing to do with one another, mike has redesigned vintage punk, hardcore, and indie rock show flyers into international typographic style posters. each design is set in berthold akzidenz grotesk medium, all lowercase.” [source]
Here are a selection of some of my favourite of the posters. There are many, many more to be found on the site.
