John Mavroudis is one of the most influential contemporary illustrators. He was born in California (from a Greek father and an American mother) and gained international reputation for the cover of TIME magazine, featuring Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, created by her powerful quotes. Using the same method, he previously created the portrait of US President Donald Trump for The Nation.
The Paris 2024 Olympics logo combines the Olympic flame, Marianne – the French national symbol, and a gold medal, all in one. The new design created by creative agencyRoyalties Ecobranding, brings together three iconic symbols connected to sport, the Games and France. The Paris2024 font is a variable bespoke typeface which takes its inspiration from Art Deco.
Having previously hosted the games in 1900 and 1924, Paris will become the second city to host the Olympics three times and 2024 will mark the 100 years anniversary of the Paris Games of 1924.

“Created and designed by Brooklyn design duo Charles&Thorn, each Four-Letter Puzzle features one word, broken into four individual gold-foiled stamped letter puzzles. Once complete, you’ll spell out a favorite four-letter word — YEAH, CRAP, LOVE, and FUCK are all up for grabs.”
I love this project called Social Decay by Romanian digital artist Andrei Lacatusu. Lacatusu imagines what it would look like if big social media companies had real, but decaying, storefronts in a post-social media world ! The attention in the detail is really impressive.
This is sooo funny!! Ryan Gosling is the host of SNL‘s season premiere, and stars as an obsessed graphic designer haunted by the typeface Papyrus and its use for the blockbuster film Avatar! Saturday Night Live at its best!!
