It’s no secret that we at Barbour are bunch of foodies of some degree or another, so we can’t resist food concepts that are really well executed. And this series, by New Zealand-born, Brooklyn-based photographer/artist Henry Hargreaves (see a previous post of his work here) is a perfect example. In his own words, Hargreaves explains: “In this series we have taken many of the iconic foods of countries and continents and turned them into physical maps. While we know that tomatoes originally came from the Andes in South America, Italy has become the tomato king. These maps show how food has traveled the globe—transforming and becoming a part of the cultural identity of that place. Who doesn’t know the saying “throw some shrimp on the barbie” and not think of Australia? Who goes to France without eating bread and cheese? And who makes a Brazilian caipirinha without a fistful of limes?” Hargreaves collaborated with food stylist Caitlin Levin and graphic designer Sarit Melmed to painstakingly create maps made out of foods that embody each location. We love the various textures, colors and cultural references. As well as the marriage of cartography, typography and gastronomy. Outstanding on many levels! Prints available here.

Having created our fair share of infographics, we are fascinated by new and interesting ways to approach them. Austrian brand consulting and design firm Moodley Brand Identity has re-imagined what could be an annual report full of humdrum charts into compelling photographic compositions. The simplicity of text and image is graphic design in its purest form, and we applaud it.

We try to be discriminating about the superhero art we share. There’s so much out there, you really have to sift through. But this incredible series of infographics for Mashable is great on several levels. Not only do we love the illustration (by Bob Al-Greene) and design (by Emil Lendof), the research is fascinating. We just wanna know, amid all this government shutdown talk, why don’t they pay taxes? Well done!

With spring now in bloom, we are reminded of the bounty of fruits the warmer weather brings. What better way to start a Monday than with this vibrant series of prints by New York City-based designer Chris Dina. We have a certain fondness for series (and fruit!), so these pieces, complete with compelling shapes and colors, and fine typography are certainly worth sharing. Be sure to check out some of Dina’s other work, notably his work on wayfinding and informational signage at iconic Radio City Music Hall.

Self-described one-man studio Neil Stevens has an appreciation for vintage type, as do many of us designers. There’s something pure about it, free from extraneous effects or trendy design devices. This collection of flight tag prints by the London based designer/illustrator captures the essence of a bygone design era (and would make a great inspirational addition to our studio walls, I might add). In his own words: “Recently I stumbled on a lovely set of old airline baggage tags and was amazed at the variety in designs produced since the 1950s. There was something about the now iconic, easily recognizable three letter abbreviations of the city destinations, and the small surrounding details that I thought would look great blown up and on a wall. They often avoided logos, had no advertising, and were purely just the information you needed.” Prints available here.

Hong Kong-based designer/illustrator Toby Ng brings to life various (often surprising) statistics about the spread of population around the world. Ng poses the question “If the world was a village of 100 people…” The clean graphics and typography put these statistics into perspective in a way that is really easy to digest. This is just a sampling of the series, be sure to check out his website for more.

London based designer and art director Yoni Alter developed this series of beautiful posters, Shapes of Cities, depicting cities from around the world and a spectrum of vibrant colors. But as with all good design, it’s more than meets the eye. These depictions of select cities, each featuring silhouettes of key buildings and landmarks, are actually to accurate comparative scale, as indicated by the system of measurements up the right side of each piece. Prints are available here
