We think these posters are just kinda cool! They are part of a self initiated project by Gary Nicholson to lift the spirits of designers. Each poster is a pun on typographic design or some other design element, more from this series can be viewed on his personal website, along with other work from his portfolio. We think these posters would look great in any design agency.
Some really cool and colourful Origami street art has been popping up in France. These are by the French artist Mademoiselle Maurice, she uses bright colour origami figures to create geometric and graphic shapes.
More of her paper designs can be viewed on her personal website, she also works in lace and other materials.

The festival season is upon us once again. For those of us not luck enough to own an actual VW camper we could always buy this tent replica.
We just really really want one of these!

We are really looking forward to the Character Totem homecoming show tomorrow night (27th of July 2011) in Zellig at the Custard Factory. We got to have a quick look yesterday morning before set up was finished and it is already looking great! We have never seen so much colour in one exhibition.
It promises to be a great night with live music, live drawing, stalls and beer! What more can you ask for?
The show itself is brought to us by Inkygoodness, after a successful trip to Berlin, they wanted to bring it home. The Inkygoodness mission is to showcase new and emerging talent in illustration, character design and lowbrow art. They have been organising shows since 2008, having a number of events across the UK. Most recently Berlin; debuting their first international exhibition as part of the Pictoplasma Character Walk earlier this year.
Tomorrow night will also be the launch of Issue 7 of AMMO magazine. So make sure you come down, join in and have a drink!

Awesome series of images from Via Grafik. A graphic design and art agency based in Germany. The black blocks look so solid yet they seem to float, as if filled with helium. They look almost like Tetris blocks about to fall. Great work, this installation piece was created for Names festival in Praha.

We found these recently. You got to just love them, graphic design from the early 70′s they are about knitting patterns. We just love everything about them, the design, the photography and the copywriting. I feel a personal project coming on!

Two cool kids rocking at Electric Picnic 2010.
I have always though EP was one of the coolest music festivals I have ever been too. And this just proves it, you would not get this kind of thing at any old festival. I love it. This exact version should be released on iTunes!
(nice motion graphic piece too)
