Book Suggestion - Peel: The Art Of The Sticker

The book suggestion of this week is about stickers and it is awesome. It's called Peel: The Art Of The Sticker and in my opinion it's a must have book for graphic designer because, if there is something that pretty much everybody loves that would be stickers. Dave and Holly Combs traveled to New York City from Indianapolis, Indiana, to assist with September 11 recovery efforts. While exploring Manhattan during their off hours, they were inspired by the wealth of stickers they saw all over the city. These stickers made such an impact that the Combses started PEEL, the first street-art magazine with a focus on stickers. Documenting the evolution of PEEL from a black and white zine stuffed into plastic bags to a full-size, glossy, internationally distributed magazine, this book examines the development of sticker culture and how the magazine is linked with it.

Sticker Robot Giveaway/Design Contest

Hey everyone!  Just in case you didn’t have enough to do this holiday season, we thought we’d throw a random (yet fun) sticker design contest at you.  We've teamed up with our friends over at to offer a quick Christmas sticker design contest...So get to work fast and you might just nab yourself an extra present this year! Prompt: You should pull your design inspiration for this contest from the year 2010. You have full creative freedom within that prompt and we will judge your design based on aesthetic (how awesome it looks) and clarity of concept (if we can understand what the heck you’re referencing). In other words, come up with something clever which references a well-known person/event/meme or whatever, from 2010. The more recognizable and clever the better :) The design can be full color, CMYK. The dimensions for the sticker are 3" x 3" square and must be at least 300dpi. Please grab the 3" X 3" square template from the Sticker Robot website here ----> When entering your design, save it as a 72 dpi Jpeg 500 X 500 pixels. The deadline is Dec 20th, 2010 (That’s this coming Monday).  Please send all submissions to with “Sticker Design Contest” in the subject line. You can enter up to ten designs. The winning entries will be announced here on Christmas Eve and will also (maybe not the same day) be posted on Stickerobot as well. Winners will receive the following: 1st place: 1000 stickers of the artist's winning design 2nd place: 500 stickers of the artist's winning design 3rd place: The Sticker Robot pop culture parody pack! Also, check out this flattering sticker design they whipped up. Maybe if you bug them about it they'll make a few :)
