Today (Friday 4th May 2012) is my last day on placement at Uniform and the last of my planned placements so far(although I may try and fit in a couple more before I go back to uni) A full post about the last few months will be posted at some point, but for now, here is a photo a wall in the offices of Uniform.
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
A possible handbook given to employees of Valve easing them into their new job. While I’m not sure if this is genuine or not, it sure is well designed with humor and nice illustrations and it describes an awesome sounding place of work.

I’m sure they need some graphic designers so I’ll be applying for a job and no doubt planning my move over there any day now!
“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.
While it is starting to look like my job is to promote the film Prometheus, I have a totally legit design reason for this post! Check out these poster designs for the film. One of them is an official poster, the rest are fan made. Not too shabby if you ask me.
(The official one is the big face with a person standing in front of the light)

“As far back as 1840, OXO has been known to brighten spirits as well as aid strength and promote good health, even being sold in chemists and given to troops in World War I to boost moral. It seems however that these traditional uses for OXO have long been forgotten.
Through an alternative range of stock cubes I hope to revive OXO’s medicinal purposes and help raise a smile at the dinner table.
My overall solution is a ‘pun’ in itself, with each variety of stock cube featuring a particular genre of comedy; Slapstick, Surreal, Satire & Dark Humour.Contained within each box and printed on the foil are the faces of 12 comedians specific to those styles of comedy.
The copywriting on each box reflects the tone of voice specific to that genre of comedy giving a humorous twist on the traditional packaging format.”
A super solution by Stuart Mitchell which was just commended by The Roses Student Awards.
Reminds me of the Eggs for sale & Flying lessons section from the art of looking sideways.
While this is one of my favourite signs on my way into Liverpool city centre, it still isn’t quite as good as Sunbeds & English lessons.
