NYC Gifathon

If you enjoy and use gifs, other than for texts and sharing mean cats, you’re going to really enjoy today’s post. Last November, James Curran spent a month in New York City where he animated a new GIF every day for 30 days inspired by something that happened during his stay. Make sure you follow James for more animated goodies!

Raul Alejandro x Hallmark

TheeBlog-RaulAlejandro_Hallmark You may remember my homie Raul Alejandro from an interview back in 2014 (HERE), or you may recognize his work from your IG feed. I’ve always been a fan of Raul’s intricate and inspiring work, and his IG account is one I constantly share with students or type and lettering lovers. Today I am glad and proud to share Raul’s latest project/collaboration, with none other than Hallmark Signature cards. Each card in this new series features Raul’s lovely and signature lettering style, meaning that yes, these are definitely not your grandma’s cards! Check them out at the link below and buy one, or two :) Congrats again, brother!

If you work or have worked at an advertising agency, this will make you smile – and then cry a little inside. We’ve all been through this, and many of us have survived the dreaded ‘Holiday Card’. A project so iconic and important for very, very few people. Check out this mini trailer and show it to your friends… $100 says they still won’t get it.

Space Odity

TheeBlog-SpaceOddity
This is an oldie, but I felt today was a perfect day to not only share this lovely work, but to also celebrate the life and music of one of music’s biggest icons, David Bowie… Canadian Illustrator Andrew Kolb created a beautiful self-promotion book inspired and based on the lyrics of David Bowie’s classic ‘Space Oddity’ and posted it online, for the world to enjoy and share. Take a look and enjoy one of the thousand pieces of work David Bowie inspired during his lifetime.
Rest in Peace :(

HOLORAMA: An Optical Theatre

File this under WOW! Inspired by the great tradition of optical theatres, Holorama brings several iconic scenes from the history of cinema back to life. From Twin Peaks to The Big Lebowski, Holorama gives these famous scenes a third dimension using a simple holographic process based on a semi-transparent screen, mixing the image of an extremely faithfully built model with the characters extracted from the original scene. A new perspective and a tribute to cinema, accessible to all.

What makes a truly great logo

Happy New Year friends!!! It is the first post of 2016, and to celebrate the new year – and to hopefully start it n the right foot, I wanted to share this video I found during the break. With so many logo controversies last year, and the few that might come this year, Joe Posner created a helpful video in collaboration with Michael Bierut, that reviews what a logo is or isn’t, what it represents, and what it needs in order to be successful. It’s always good to review the basics every now and then, and what better time than the first week of the year. Enjoy!
