My day so far is being something surrealistic, I’m a little bit sick of having teachers who don’t like their jobs, It’s really sad, right now I need something to cheer me up and what could be more perfect for this surrealistic day than an amazing graphic designer who creates her work by using vintage pictures and illustrations, she uses to tares them apart and then create great digital pieces. Caltrin is a graphic designer and mom who lives in Malaysia, just what I needed today. Now, let’s work a little bit!
As many of you know I have a slightly predilection for typographic work, well, today I run into the work of Hong Seon Jang an artist who currently lives and works at New York city, I specially like this installation in which Jang creates a skyline using metallic typefaces. This work is part of the exhibition Labyrinth that is taking place from May 4 to June 15 at the David B Smith Gallery in Denver Colorado, so, if you are in the near area, please, go in my place, I’m so far away :D
Today, I prepared a beautiful story, the story of a man who met the moon and decided to spent the rest of his life with “her” such a lovely story is like a fairy tale.
Private Moon is the name of this fairy tale, an ongoing project by the artist Leonid Tishkov and the photographer Boris Bendikov. Tishkov prepares installations based in his own sketches and then Boris Bendikov takes pictures of them to create this lovely fairy tale.
Well, I don’t know how many people knows this project because I found it a long long time ago, so I think it could be very popular right now, but if you haven’t heard of Swissted, let me write about it today, well, let’s take Mike Joyce’s words, he does it better that me, at least in english :)
“swissted is an ongoing project by graphic designer mike joyce, owner of stereotype design in new york city. drawing from his love of punk rock and swiss modernism, two movements that have (almost) nothing to do with one another, mike has redesigned vintage punk, hardcore, and indie rock show flyers into international typographic style posters. each design is set in berthold akzidenz grotesk medium, all lowercase.every single one of these shows actually happened.”
