As we’ve mentioned before (here and here and here), 3D rendering has come a really long way in recent years. With technology advancing exponentially, the world of three-dimensional work has gotten more real, to the point that it’s sometimes difficult to discern what’s computer generated and what’s actually real. This gorgeous series, GoldRush, by Slovenian designer Črtomir Just exemplifies that fine line. We all know that these items aren’t actually made of gold, but Just nearly makes us believe it. In his own words, Just explains, “Since the world is obsessed with everything that’s golden, I decided to make a fun 3D series that takes the popular ‘gold’ naming for a spin and tries to depict these products literally or how they would look like, if they were truly made out of gold.”

The landing page of Baltimore-based artist Joshua Budich’s website simply states “born to illustrate.” That’s a loaded declaration, but Budich certainly has the goods to back it up. His eclectic body of work is quite impressive, with an obvious love for pop culture. His style is reminiscent of comic book art, which lends itself to his familiar subjects from television, movies and music. Budich relies heavily on line work, and achieves some great, expressive details without overdoing it, or looking like he simply traced celebrities. He also has a great eye for composition and color, making his work recognizable now that we’re familiar with it (prints for sale here).

We are big fans of reimagined movie posters done well (here and here and here). San Francisco Bay Area-based Concepcion Studios, led by art director Patrick Concepcion, seems to do better than well with each new project. And these reimagined Wes Anderson film posters, for Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, and The Life Aquatic, are no exception. We love the the bold colors, clean and timeless typography, and vintage hipster feel employed here. Film buffs and design nerds alike should swoon over this series, as well as other work in Concepcion’s portfolio. There’s some pretty terrific work.

There has been a sort of renaissance of great movie (and TV) posters lately, and we’ve featured some of them here and here and here. Brooklyn-based studio SpaceWolf Limited takes the art of said poster design to another place (space, perhaps?) with their limited edition laser engraved wood posters. Yes, you heard that right… wood! Sure, this is a very niche product that seems geared toward (fellow) design/pop culture/sci-fi geeks. But there is a level of artistry and precision to be appreciated by just about anyone. We love the intricate details and beautiful contrast they achieve. Because these are (very) limited editions — just 50 hand signed an numbered pieces per design — the rotation of posters is constant. We look forward to future editions… these make great gifts (hint hint). Other products, including jewelry, journals and iPhone skins, available here.

There’s a lot of buzz surrounding the new Christopher Nolan science-fiction film Interstellar. Given the genre, and anticipation leading up to its release last week, it’s no surprise that a considerable amount of inspired art has surfaced online. Much of it is fan art, but these poster comps by Los Angeles-based designer/art director James Fletcher are more than that. Certainly a fan, but also an entertainment industry insider, Fletcher has loads of experience working in the field. And it shows. We love the variety of his layouts, and the level of detail he brings to the table. There’s nothing static about them… they could be part of the movie itself. These posters are impactful, engaging, and just darn good. Well done. Be sure to check out more of Fletcher’s stellar work.

The sheer mastery demonstrated in the retro-futurisitic style of Belgium illustrator/designer Laurent Durieux is hard to ignore. It’s not just the novelty of bucking recent design trends and appearing to be from another era (think 1960s pop culture) that makes Durieux’s work so special, but also the level of detail in his work. Durieux’s eye for composition, typography and color only enhance his brilliant work, which (no surprise) has been commissioned by none other than Mondo (see related posts here and here and here).

In honor of the Oscars, which happened just a few days ago, we thought we’d take a look at the stellar nominee posters featured throughout the broadcast. The Mill, visual effects, animation and design studio with offices in London, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, created these fantastic pieces, along with other elements of the show package, including Nomination and In Memoriam sequences. These posters are really quite beautiful and capture the essence of each film. They work well on their own, as still posters, and even better when sequenced together for the broadcast. Fantastic work! Below are just Best Picture nominees, check out their blog for many more.

London-based designer Scott Woolston is wildly talented with a really impressive body of work. His eclectic style suits his focus on film and television marketing perfectly. Woolston clearly has a keen ability to translate sometimes complex concepts into visual feasts. Admittedly, we may be suffering from a case of design envy. Great work!

We have a certain fondness for movie posters, and we love this series for its totally fresh take. Italian art director Salvatore Zanfrisco illustrates iconic sound bites from cult movies, using sound waves as the basis… “celebrating the ultimate way to enjoy cinema – by ears.”

As the summer movie season ramps up so does the barrage of movie posters. Most are not great (or even good), but these limited-edition Iron Man 3 posters by Uruguayan illustrator/designer Martin Ansin set the bar really high. Though these posters went on sale (and quickly sold out) at Mondo earlier this month, we can’t help but ogle at these superior specimens of cinematic posters, which feature metallic inks. These standard and color variant prints feature not only Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, but also Don Cheadle as Iron Patriot, Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin and scenes from the movie. Mondo really is the go-to spot for prints and memorabilia (here and here and here), and this is a fantastic addition.
