and hard at work!
Behold…the first ads released for the up and coming Southwest Journal Home Improvement Fair.
I’m in the process of creating a system of posters, spec ads, web animations and other print collateral for the Spring 2010 Home Improvement fair. We decided to go a different route this year…power tools and raw materials-using a bit of a throwback to wood-block poster design and wood burning. This was my first stab at creating ANY version of web-applied design, and it’s even got a spot of animation! (I know it’s just a Gif, but gimme a break, I’m a print guy…)
The ads can also be found here.
Ein bloggy Geschenk für den lieben Professor Erik Brandt. (please excuse my poor german)
A Geotypografika inspired post:
A bottle cap sketch.
A similar example of Erik Brandt’s findings in Human Rebranding, though it may just be a replacement of the original Toyota lettering.
Finally, a very intimidating rabbit-with pipe. Located in Haw Par Villa.
For a mere s$18, we were allowed a glimpse into Singapore’s Jurong Bird Park. While Neither Chad nor I have any vested interest in Ornithology, we thought it would be an interesting and educational way to spend an afternoon. Pictured above from left to right: Saddle-bill Stork, clearly illustrated cautionary signage, Pink Flamingos, Puffin signage sponsored by Penguin books (David Pearson would be proud), Chad in a cage (sign reads “The world’s most dangerous creature”), Jurong Bird Park’s Signage system (Pacific North West, anyone?), Pelican and Pelican pictogram signage. Not a bad day, just so many birds!
Mashed potatoes…in a cup.
