The Infamous Press

Here are some really amazing vintage book cover concepts by Norwegian designer Morten Iveland. So believe it or not these are not actually vintage book covers but were created to visually look as if they were. Iveland did a great job of achieving this effect with his wonderful attention to color and especially paper texture.

A New Penney | Old Goodie

I was really shocked to come across this the other day on AisleOne. I was drawn to the dynamic sequence design but when I looked at the bottom and found ‘J.C. Penney Company Convention’ I was stunned. After looking into the history of the poster I found that it was a one-off design for JC Penney and that the poster was designed during the late-1970s during a transition from an American general merchandiser to a to a streamlined department store with a closely integrated catalog business (container list). What a great way to find out about the influential designer George Tscherny.
