It's funny how big of a roll typography had on the old days when we didn't have computers to create all kinds of crazy graphics as we do today. Most designs relied on nothing but type and the cool mixes they had with the blend of colors was just amazing and very inspiring. So I selected a few pieces to bring us back in time and get some vintage inspiration. Enjoy!
I've been pretty overwhelmed about space lately. Our culture really loves to visualize and imagine space exploration, life out there, and it's something that really gets stuck in your mind and it has to be expressed in someway at some point. This post is my way of saying: the space rocks, get inspired by it like I am.
So I went searching for cool space inspired artworks to share with you, and I think I've managed to assemble a good set of cool pieces for you. From photography, to retro space art, here you'll find some sweet art!
We've always seen things from our time designed in vintage style. From advertising for Twitter and Facebook, to iPods from a past era. This time there's something fresh for all of those who love modern vintage design: modern games designed as Atari cartridges.
Gotta say I've spent many hours playing some of these games, like Age of Empires III, and it's really cool to see it like that. Makes you think of how rustic these game would've been if released 20 years ago. These are the work of American designer StarRoivas (didn't find her name).
Just in time for the 4th of July holiday, what better moment to enjoy a sunny gallery of summery shots by the talented Ana Dias of Portugal. "Big Girls Don't Cry" is Dias' visually stunning work inspired by the 50s pin-up girl. The overall vibe is playful and unique and in the end, makes us want to smile from ear to ear.
Ana Dias was born in Oporto (Portugal) in 1984. Having graduated in 2007 from the Escola Superior Artística do Porto (Oporto Superior School of Art), she went straight into teaching Serigraphy, Lithography and Engraving at this institution.
