1. Student Spotlight: Steven C. Huang
I just love student work so when I saw this work for Raid, I was astonished that this was student work, from recent Art Center grad Steven C. Huang, but kind of bummed it’s not a real project from Raid. Found via the dieline.
2. Vintage Typewriter Tin Prints
What I love post about these pieces is the variety in vintage inspired typography. Each one is exceptional and independent from the last. You can purchase these tins from Seen+Noted. Found via Eight Hour Day.
3. Live Action References for Cinderella
I can not describe how awestruck I was when I found this blog! What an amazing blog about Disney animation. The following screen capture shows Helene Stanley standing in for Cinderella, recognize this scene? The animators would primarily use it as reference for motion and movement. There are so many more images, I can’t get enough! Found via Michael Sporn Animation.
4. Myturtleneck Air Moving Announcement
When a New York designer, Catherine Mangosing, moved to Toronto, she sent these air mail inspired collateral ahead to introduce herself to the design community. It was hard to choose one image to show, but this one highlights the humorous copy she wrote to go along with the piece. View the rest of the images, including the plane tickets, on the For Print Only blog.
5. “Births, Deaths & Marriages” CD Packaging
Homemade design and crafts always have such intrinsic detail that just needs appreciation. This musician, Matt Ellis, created such a personalized promotional case for his new cd that included plants from his home country, a spray painted customized burlap bag for the cd itself, and the cover of the box was personally embossed by the artist himself. There’s also a video of the while process. It’s quite fascinating to see all the work he put into this 500 run. However, the typography of the album name itself is impressive all on its own.
