Soner On

Soner On

Flatbush Brown is the website of Soner On, a painter/illustrator who does some really rad hand painted/drawn typefaces. His style reminds me of the Garbage Pail Kids and cartoons from the 80’s, which makes me really happy.

Kin-Pro

Kin-Pro is a Japan based design studio that create some really beautiful patterns. Their work lies somewhere between Marimekko and Geoff Mcfetridge, creating colorful wallpapers and illustrations for kids books. Wonderful stuff.

Honeyee has some more new pictures of the UT store in Harajuku. I have a few wishes around this subject. First, that Uniqlo would open up over here on the west coast. Just like H & M, why is there such a resistance to be over here?! Second, I want a UT store like, in my house. They’re going to be selling HUNDREDS of different styles. I would be in heaven.
That is all.

The Best 2012 Olympic Logo I’ve Seen So Far

The Best 2012 Olympic Logo I’ve Seen So Far

Having read a ton of stuff about London’s Olympic logo by now, I wholeheartedly agree with Michael over at Boicozine that Foundation 33’s bid logo has by far been the best idea yet. They put it into pretty simple terms as to why this image works:

• The five rings that make up the Olympic logo each represent a different continent of the world
• The five rings are combined to form a single graphic logo
• The new logo brings the different continents and people of the world together and represents the diversity and multi culture realism within London
• The logo references a target, a symbol of aspiration and achievement as well as a sport icon in competition
• The logo is powerfully contemporary and communicates the idea of the modernity and diversity in London
• Contemporary / modern / iconic / cool
• The world in one city
• Focus on London
• The centre off attention

That makes total sense to me. I love the iconography of the bullseye (it works for Target, right?), and combined with the Olympic rings is beautiful.

For those of you in New York, Faile is having an amazing looking art show that started today. I love that they made a giant sculpture of the boy blowing up the rabbit, probably Faile’s most recognized image.. They’re style is like none other, and the pieces look amazing, so if you’re free tonight, definitely check this out.

DOOMDRIPS Prints

DOOMDRIPS Prints

Aesthetic Apparatus, makers of the finest posters in the entire world, has a new series of posters out now called DOOMDRIPS. I love the colors and shapes of these posters, but I kind of feel like they would be better as t-shirts or even textiles, like a pillow. They seem almost too minimal for a poster. But whatever, they’re really well done, and you should go buy some.
