Evernotes Every Friday
1. Paramount Celebrates 100 Years
DKNG Studios just designed and illustrated this poster to celebrate Paramount’s 100th anniversary. They were only available to employees at Paramount but wouldn’t that make a great gift for a movie buff pal? I love the minimalistic icon-like look to each illustration. Plus the limited and muted toned color palette all combine to make a cohesive piece. Really really good stuff!
2. Douglas Behl: Wedding Invitations
I just love those wedding invitations that push the envelope waaaay past traditional. This suite, however, combines the traditional with a “splash” of a crazy bright melting Popsicle motif. I love the traditional typography with the bright times and dates smack on top. Designed by Douglas Behl, printed by Studio on Fire, found via designworklife.
3. Nathan Stromberg Newspaper Illustrations
Remember making collages as a kid? I just loved tearing up magazines and repurposing the pieces to make something entirely new! Using vintage newspapers, Nate Stromberg created several large scale collages of classic cars, each taking 70-100 hours to make! Crazy! But the work paid off because these collages are so detailed and beautifully created. Found via Allan Peters.
4. BlueHornet Promotional Poster
Gotta love 3D glasses right? With the theme of Focus for their collateral at the Email Evolution Conference, BlueHornet created these posters to be given as a takeaway from their keynote presentation. So creative and perfect for their theme too! Found via For Print Only.
5. Ampersand Necklace
I’ve been looking for a plain tarnished gold/bronze necklace for some time now and this is just perfect. And typographical. Lovely find. Buy it for me here. 😉
