Beautiful drawings by the daughter of Gottfried Helnwein. See the post by BOOOOOOOM! for more (here).
Public School, a creative studio from Austin, developed this genius idea to increase productivity and maintain morale in open-space work environments. I can’t get over how innovative this is. This kind of environment is exactly where I hope my career takes me. Read more about the flags here.
Letterpress prints made with legos! These are so charming- I’ve already emailed the link to my book arts instructor. Wonder if I can experiment with this next semester. See more here.
Can’t get over this beautiful, intricate absinthe packaging. See more images in the Dieline’s post (here).
Loving this work by French illustrator/graphic designer Stéphane Massa-Bidal. See the rest of his portfolio here.
I finally saw Black Swan today and it was nothing short of magical. Natalie Portman’s portrayal of Nina Sayers was without a doubt the best performance by any actress this year, and potentially this decade. The level of craft involved in this film was so impressive: ballet costumes by Rodarte, a thrilling score, and Portman’s unexpectedly but decidedly beautiful dancing were wrapped exquisitely in a flawless screenplay. If you couldn’t tell, I loved it.
After coming home and poring over film stills, I was ecstatic to find these Czech-inspired teaser posters for the film made by British design firm La Boca. It’s refreshing to see that Arnonofsky’s attention to detail isn’t lost on the aspects of his films that lie beyond celluloid.
The best looking football team out there, despite what you are expecting to hear from me, is not comprised of Badgers or Packers, at least not where design is concerned. For as long as I can remember, I have loved the Oregon Ducks’ colors. But in recent years, my passion has extended beyond their intense hues. Their uniforms are beautiful; really vivid, with awesome typography (not unlike the best looking football team, the Netherlands national squad).
Since Nike is based in Portland, they share a partnership with the Ducks whereby Oregon gets a new set for practically every game. Nike just unveiled the look they will be donning for the upcoming BCS bowl game, and they didn’t disappoint.
At first I was a little mystified by the absence of their signature “mallard” green, but the silver is so sharp I got over it pretty quickly. And those socks! I love how much they stand apart from every other college football team.
I have to say, my favorite part of the uniforms are the wings on the shoulders, which look especially awesome when the quarterback is preparing to throw. The new uniforms feature a similar detail on the gloves that is equally beautiful.
Even their field looks amazing.
Needless to say, I won’t be cheering for Auburn on January 10.
