Airport Runway Screenprints

January 11th, 2012

We’ve seen infographics of airports but this is the first Airport runway poster that I’ve ever seen. This self-initiated screenprint project was created by Jerome Daksiewicz which features runway patterns of airports around the world. Really enjoying the minimal detail approach. Jerome has the prints for purchase on his website.

Swissted: Where Punk Rock meets Swiss Modernism

January 10th, 2012

Swissted is the next greatest thing to hit the web besides Designspiration. It is an ongoing project by graphic designer Mike Joyce and also the owner of Stereotype design in New York City. Mikes love for punk rock music and Swiss design is what allows these two near polar opposites to meet. Each poster reflects the traditional international typographic style posters, each sized to the standard swiss kiosk dimensions of 35.5″ by 50″. The typeface used of course is Berthold Akzidenz Grotesk Medium.

Expo 67 Posters

May 23rd, 2011

The abstractness of the illustration on these posters really makes me wish I had prints for my wall. Guy Lalumière designed these in 1966 for the World Fair Exposition in 1967—Expo 67.

Showcased Work: Old Spice Campaign Stats Poster

February 1st, 2011

If you’ve heard recently, the Old Spice guy Isaiah Mustafa is back. His return makes this the perfect time to share with you a project I completed a few months ago for fun. The goal was to create a refined and informative infographic. At the time of creating this, the Old Spice campaign titled “The Man Your Man Could Smell Like” was in full swing. The campaign was led by Isaiah Mustafa and driven by the great Wieden + Kennedy creative agency. The results of the campaign relative to sales and the social media buzz, exponentially exceeded expectations and ultimately marked the campaign as one of the most successful in history.

The question was how do I design for this. Do I pair the design with what the brand has established or do I take an alternate route? At the time I was heavily inspired by the international typographic style and Massimo Vignelli. This explains for the minimal layout and geometric line angles similar to the New York City subway maps. However, this direction didn’t come immediately. I toyed around with various versions that were far from being relevant to Old Spice or being easily readable. This version however, felt the most appropriate. Bringing in a few elements such as the cutting-off of the logo and Old Spice related colors, helped reflect current establishments that the brand already uses.

The data was collected by the marketing firm, Symphony IRI.
Type family used: Helvetica Neue Ltd Std

Typefaces of the World poster is also available now.

Showcased Work: Typefaces of the World Poster

January 24th, 2011

Typefaces of the World was a poster I created to show the typefaces that are most commonly used in a lot of today’s design. The poster includes information for each typefaces such as the year it was made, the location and the typographer. These 50 typefaces were chosen based on popularity and usefulness in present design. It was by mere coincidence that the typefaces were nearly split 50/50 between Europe and the United States—the most prominent locations for typographers were in these areas.

Initially the poster was created as an experiment and excuse to explore new methods of working in Illustrator that I hadn’t attempted before. I’d seen info graphics on Behance where data was fanned-out but evenly spaced—there was no way this was done by hand. It took a while but after figuring out the method of doing it where you can essentially paste in your data with tab-formatting, the poster was on its way. I’d like to play with this further to really nail it down because there aren’t any tutorials on there on creating a dynamic way to showcase information in this way. Hint: its not type on a path.

Typefaces used in this poster: Helvetica Neue LT Std & Univers LT Std

Star Trek Posters

August 20th, 2010

Stumbled across these really clean Star Trek posters by Mondo that I really enjoyed. The type is nicely set and the colors sing. The posters were available for a while in 18×24″ screen prints but I don’t believe they are anymore.

Serif + Sans Serif Classification

April 19th, 2010

It’s a beautiful thing to see typefaces classified and grouped for us to quickly look at from day to day. Particularly I’ve found the Periodic Table of Typefaces to be most helpful. For nearly a year I had it as my desktop background. Every time I looked at my desktop I was looking at type and studying. You can grab the full desktop version here.

These next posters by Martin Plonka are all about Serif and Sans-serif classification. Besides being a beautiful set, I could see them being very useful in classrooms to help students understand the categories of type as well as seeing examples of the type in application. These posters are somewhat small but Martin covers these categories:

• Slab Serif
• Serif Old Style
• Serif Transitional
• Serif Modern
• Sans Humanist
• Sans (Neo)Grotesque
• Sans Geometric
