Fantastic type design by the legendary Gerard Huerta. Such a rare treat to see 1920s art deco revival style laid out in a needlepoint pattern and rendered in early computer pixel fashion. Huge YES to all of those. Stay tuned for more incredible work from Mr. Huerta next week!
Here is a poster designed by the great Seymour Chwast, he of Push Pin Studios fame, to promote magician Doug Henning's televised recreation of Harry Houdini's infamous stunt. This went down December 26, 1982.
I'm feeling generous today, so here is round 2 of stamps, continuing in today's theme of sporting events & psychedelia! I've been after these for a while - gorgeous set of postage stamps designed by the incredibly talented Lance Wyman for the 1968 Olympic Games.
Well I've been listening to "Sex Farm" in anticipation of this weekend's Smell the Glove art opening at our CO Exhibitions space, so I thought it only appropriate that I share this very stylish-designed packaging for veterinary vaccinations.
Designed circa 1972 by Cyril D. Cronin & Mooura-George for Bean Advertising Ltd, Great Britain.
Fantastic pair of stamps for Indonesia's 9th Pekan Olahraga Nasional, or the National Games. It's interesting to see how other artists designed sports icons after Otl Aicher shut down the game with his 1972 Olympics icons. That said, I love how there is just enough variety between the style of these icons to keep them interesting, but still very much all in the same family.
In honor of all the insane yardwork going down at my house right now, here's a stamp commemorating agriculture and celebrating the tractor drivers all across Israel. The curvy serifs in the green Hebrew ישראל text fits so well with the curvy green highlight shapes on the tractor and the driver's sleeve. Love it.
