I recently found out about Jimmy Turrell’s work through Jon’s on ISO50. His collage style is beautifully orchestrated by use of photography and illustration. Jimmy’s style is very unique and if you stop by his website you will most likely find yourself looking at everything he has created.
Check out his portfolio here.
Here is splendid ad for Gant Rugger. I found out about video by doing a little digging on the work of art director Albin Holmqvist who is also the man behind the amazing typography of the EF – Live the Language videos. Holmqvist really did a great job at creating the typography to complement the subject matter in a nostalgic manner. It really has that old fashioned feel which was achieved by the vintage filmography and type style and most importantly the fashion.
Perhaps by paying attention to this quick tutorial, the viewer may adopt a few pointers on how to gain an impeccable sense of style.

So I just placed my order today for Neil Krug‘s Pulp Art Book! I’ve been waiting over a year now for it to be released and now it is finally here. Being one of my favorite photographers, his work never seizes disappoint me. Here a taste of some of his latest work. The colors are absolutely amazing. I really need to get a hold of some expired polaroid film.

Amazing remix and such a rad video of Crystal Castles’ “Not in Love” featuring Robert Smith of The Cure. I love the analog feel. It looks as if they distorted VHS footage to create the music video.
Street Painting – Franklin’s Footpath / Photographer: Henry Groskinsky, 1972
Artist Gene Davis putting finishing touches on his 414-ft-long painting. “Franklin’s Footpath,” painted on the street in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
I don’t care how distracting this would be to drive on! We need streets like this in our cities. There would be so many more happy drivers.
I’ve been meaning to post this for quite some time. I ran across it a few months back while I was getting my daily AisleOne fix. I found the Galileo poster after digging through the resources. The design is by Gottschalk + Ash Ltd. for The Theatre Company at the St. Lawrence Center. What captivated me about this poster is the simple grid use and the hauntingly enthralling symbol in the center of it symbolizing Galileo’s vision of space. Absolutely brilliant!
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.
I’ve been busy like crazy lately and I can’t recall where I came across Josh Vanover‘s. I’m thinking it was most likely on ffffound. I was really intrigued by his use of distortion with a (most likely) television image process. I created a typography project last fall in the graphic design program at Sac State where I used a very similar process. I am planning a shoot with The New Humans some time before this year ends and the project will reminisce a similar but very different treatment to this series.
