Designspiration P1

So I am starting a simple post series of my inspiration derived from my saves on Designspiration. If you haven’t got a chance to check out the site now is the chance. I was invited earlier this year to be a member of the site and have utilized this wonderful resource quite frequently. So above is just Projection 1 from the JetstreamProjector Designspiration inspiration bank. In these projections I will be posting just small selections of my most recent saves. The Projection 1 feature includes a wonderfully designed poster for the band Vintage Modernists, the essential Dieter Rams’ “10 Principle Principles of Good Design” poster, as well as a beautiful poster of the great Massimo Vignelli’s “5 Phrases to Live By.” Many many more to come.

Meet the New Haven Math Club

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.

Memoryhouse ➡ Caregiver

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I just stumbled on this beautiful video by The Tearist for Memoryhouse‘s “Caregiver” and I was spellbound. The song is hauntingly beautiful and really stabs the soul with a pleasant rush of purity. The video adds another dimension to the music creating something very surreal and mesmerizing. The clips are sampled from scenes of “Shadows of Our Forgotten Ancestors” by Sergei Paradjanov. Memoryhouse has really become one of my favorites over the last year and I am so anxious to hear their new album set to be released very soon.

Via Memoryhouse.

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.
