The typographic portraits of John Mavroudis

“Trump Words” cover for The Nation magazine
Trump Covid-19 poster

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.

He is also the designer who created the posters for the 60th anniversary of the Thessaloniki International Film Festival this year.

The Paris 2024 Olympics logo unveiled

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 agency Royalties 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.

Four-letter puzzles with beautiful typography

I love both the product and the packaging for these fun puzzles.

“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.” 

Maybe not for kids though, 😜.

A book about the story of Letraset

Anyone remember those Letraset font sheets? I have still kept some as a reminder of another era…

This is the book “Letraset: The DIY Typography Revolution”, the first comprehensive history of the rubdown lettering system that revolutionised typographic expression.
