NEWWORK MAGAZINE Issue NO. 3 just dropped and it looks amazing. I have issues NO. 1 & NO. 2 which are brilliant as well. I’m a huge fan of large format newsprint publications and this is by far one of the best out there. A must have. “The theme of issue NO. 3 is face as an idea that is both literal and abstract. It invokes our contributors to break down “face” and show how it manifest itself in their work.”
Lawrence Otoole’s Philadelphia Ghost Sign Project is a visual record of ghost signs and faded advertisements in and around the greater Philadelphia area. To me, one of the coolest aspects of the city’s history. Some of the chosen word combinations are interesting, “Coke, Coal, Fuel, Oil”, “Money, Luggage, Clothing, Watches, Diamonds”…
I’ve followed Damien for years now and have always been motivated by his creativity and productivity. He’s left a solid trail of work behind him for clients like Urban Outfitters, Swindle, and Zoo York, and continues to blaze trails with Rad Mountain. Check out his recent interview with XLR8R:
Picked up this dope little publication in Old City a few weeks ago and wanted to share. This is issue 3, but I’ve never seen it around town before. Published by 2 One 5, this issue features: Ron English, Cope2, Stash, Greg Lamarche, Ellen Stagg, Kevin Lyons, House Industries, and more.Living Proof seems reccession proof, taking no short cuts on print quality, and even throwing in a little spot UV on the cover. I dig it.
Just got a copy of wejetset’s, City Notes • New York. Cool little publication that’s part interview and part travel guide. City Notes takes its readers on a humble tour of a metropolis through the eyes of a creative professional. I check in on wejetset quite often and they are always at the forefront of travel-focused material and culture, so when they put out a publication like this, pick it up and take heed. You can request a free copy here.
I somehow stumbled upon this great collection of rare design books on ebay. The most intriguing being Jan Tschichold’s Die Neue Typographie - The Rare 1928 First Edition! If only I had an extra $1,250… Also very cool is The Stork Club Bar Book by Lucius Beebe, 1946 First Edition with Jacket, Binding and Typography by Paul Rand, and signed by Mr. Rand as well. Plus this Photo-lettering Alphabet Thesaurus, and a TON more. Fun Sunday digging.
The agency I work for, Neiman Group, is underwriting a show for the Ad Council at The Art Institute of Philadelphia this Wednesday February 11th (through April 2nd). The exhibition is titled, “Advertising that Changed the Nation” and will showcase the Ad Council’s 65yr history of PSAs.
I designed the graphic below to be printed as a 9′ x 9′ banner which will hang in the front window display of the Art Institute. There will also be a limited edition run of 16″ x 20″ posters available at the opening. Here is a link to more info about the show, if you’re in the area, stop by and check us out!
