Italian designer/illustrator Alessandro Pautasso’s graphical interpretation of old Hollywood icons is really stunning. His use of bold colors and geometric shapes (not quite as orderly as the geometric work of Charis Tsevis), is the perfect combination to deem these masterpieces in their own right. Pautasso’s amazing talents by way of Photoshop and Illustrator on Wacom hardware is truly inspiring. Nice work

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.

It’s no secret that we are fans of superhero art, as well as polygonal illustration (as evidenced here and here and here). So when we stumbled upon this gem of a series, we just had to share. French-Canadian designer/illustrator Eric Dufresne perfectly marries geometric forms with with the likenesses of some of the most beloved DC Comics characters (his work is very reminiscent of the über-talented Charis Tsevis). These intricate grid systems cannot be easy to pull off, so hats off to Dufresne for a job well done.

Calgary-based designer/illustrator Michael Mateyko, of the design duo otherwise known as KOMBOH (with Hans Thiessen), has found yet another way to showcase the superhero artwork that we love and admire. This time it’s a poster of minimalist superheroes in tidy little circles. Though there are admittedly some obscure characters here, known only to hardcore comic book fans, the mainstays are also well represented in a fresh manner. Prints for sale 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

In keeping with the theme of movie posters, we want to take an opportunity to showcase the excellent work of Los Angeles-based design firm DKNG (see our previous post here). This time it’s for the iconic 1980s film Big Top Pee-Wee. We love the clean lines and attention to so many details. It’s no surprise that the limited-edition poster sold out on Mondo the DAY it was released.

We love the work of Spanish designer/art director David de la Fuente. His identity and typography work is impeccable. And, appropriately enough, he even has a piece honoring February 14th. Check out some of his work below (identity for a sport fishing shop, business card for shower and bath screen specialist, film poster, identity for international sports schools, identity for translation and training services company, poster campaign for occupational risks prevention), and more on his site.

North Carolina-based designer/illustrator Matt Stevens has a great eye for branding. His focus and skill with brand identity programs is clear, even in this tongue-in-cheek badge set. We know from experience, successful branding is a tall order, and Stevens captures a quick visual crux of these varying badges beautifully.

Savannah, Georgia-based freelance designer and SCAD student Justin Barber (no relation to us) has tapped into his branding and identity skills for this witty series about everyday white lies, uncovering the difference between what we say and what we mean. Well done.
