It’s no secret that we’re fascinated by “365 projects” and the dedication they reveal (previous posts here and here and here). Done well, these daily doses of artistry not only help develop a robust portfolio, but also serve as an exercise in on-demand creativity… a must in the field of graphic design, as we know all too well. And Nebraska-based designer/illustrator Ian Simmons tackled his serial project expertly. We are in awe of not only the diversity of his work, but the sheer quality of his typography. Clearly a movie buff at heart, Simmons masterfully depicted a wide variety of film quotes through illustration and typography, for 365 days straight (actually, 366)! Yes, an entire year. Just incredible. This is just a sampling of a few of our favorites, but be sure to check out his Instagram for the complete collection. He even sells select prints (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.
