This is the official poster for Yiorgos Lanthimos‘ new film: “The Killing of a Sacred Dear” designed by Vasilis Marmatakis. Once again, Marmatakis has created a strange, but also very memorable film poster, that is also special in its own way.
This is the great result of an extensive rebranding and new packaging for “Mills of Saint George”, a traditional series of flour products. I love the concept behind the design! Mousegraphics, the awarded Greek design studio, created the new packaging. They actually baked a series of dough shapes using the flour product, with the help of sculptor Martha Foka. Then they photographed the dough-shaped images layered on different colored backgrounds.
An amazing red-tiled pool near the beach, in direct contrast with the all-white library room both situated in The Library Hotel at Koh Samui, Thailand. The rest of the hotel doesn’t look bad either.
Currently obsessed with this great children’s book: Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls by authors Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo. It’s packed with bedtime stories about the life of 100 extraordinary women from the past and the present, illustrated by sixty female artists from all over the world. Each woman’s story is written in the style of a fairy tale. Each story has a full page, full color portrait that captures the spirit of the portrayed hero. Favilli and Cavallo launched their Kickstarter in March with the goal of making $40,000, and printing their first 1,000 copies and eventually reached more than $600,000!
Also, love the lettering cover! A great “anti-princess” storybook that inspires our girls to dream big!
Neil Krug is an American artist based in L.A. He also directs music videos for bands like Boards of Canada, but when I saw his vintage-style photography, I was captivated. Many times using expired Polaroid film, Krug has a distinctive 70’s nostalgic look, playing around with rich colors, psychedelic notes and Instagram-style filters.
Thank you Alex Savakis, for featuring me in your blog, I really enjoyed doing this interview!!!
“You give me money, I’ll give you creative.
I’ll start when the check clears.
Time is money. More time is more money.
I’ll listen to you. You listen to me.
You tell me what you want, I’ll tell you what you need.
You want me to be on time, I want you to be on time.
What you use is yours, what you don’t is mine.
I can’t give you stuff I don’t own.
I’ll try not to be an ass, you should do the same.
If you want something that’s been done before, use that.
If you want your way, you have to pay.
If you don’t pay, I have final say.
Let’s create something great together.”
This is actually a work contract for a design firm in Chicago. So straightforward and simple!
In Japan, manhole covers don’t have to be ugly. Japanese sewer lids can be beautiful, intricate examples of urban design, with references to local sights, traditional printmaking, history, architecture and pop culture . The above images are part of a photographic project by S. Morita, who has recorded over a thousand manhole covers around Japan over the years.
