February is Black History Month, so it’s a great time to seek out diversity in design. I looked at works from Georg Olden, who in 1945 started working for CBS and opened up the field of broadcast graphics, to Eddie Opara who works at the Pentagram design agency.
The ninth annual San Francisco Film Noir Festival begins tonight, and these 24 posters and lobby cards of the movies being shown depict the signature style of the genre: crime, betrayal, manipulation and cynicism.
In honor of Penguin Awareness Day today, I present to you 12 diverse works by different artists of the dapper bird who played around with the black-and-white coloring of penguins, took away outlines or amplified the contrast.
Did you know there’s a Winnie the Pooh Day? Yup, it’s today, so I sought out designers’ alternative takes on Pooh and his pals. The results are anywhere from funny to dark – most definitely not the childhood bear we grew up with.
