A collaboration between illustrator Jingyao Guo and small batch design brand ODLCO, these World Marketplace posters are like the Where’s Waldo immersion-thing, rendered in Jingyao’s totally amazing low-polygon illustration style. Some of the most famous outdoor markets, dense with visceral food stuffs, smells, light & signage make for great repeat viewing.

The posters are available on Kickstarter for another week or so, and are nicely priced at $25. Comes with a rad coloring book, too!

Post Grotesk

23 October 2013

The sophisticated, beautiful and recently released typeface Post Grotesk, Designed by Josh Finklea, is now available at VLLG.

The development of Josh Finklea’s Post Grotesk began in the Spring of 2011 as a project to design a contemporary version of the traditional grotesk sans-serif. The intention was to build an amiable typeface with maximum usability and an overall sense of neutrality. Post Grotesk reduces the typical rigidness of a grotesk through subtle additions of personality and uniqueness.

koukou

15 April 2013

koukou is the latest video by motion designer Takashi Ohashi from Japan.

“Kou kou” is a visual work based on an abstract animation synchronized with a song comprising the unique syllabic sounds of the Japanese language, without actually using any full words.

It is in the elements of sounds from which words are made that we find syllabic sounds. In the case of the Japanese language, the linguistic roots or ‘Yamato Kotoba’ each individual sound possesses a unique meaning. For example, words containing ‘su’ exhibit a frictional characteristic and hence are used to represent a linear or direct movement. In modern-day Japanese, ‘sasu’ or ‘susumu’ represent a concrete, tangible action.

Tell us about your new book,’12 Days of New York’
’12 Days of New York’ is a picture book I illustrated, published by Abrams. It is written by Tonya Bolden to the tune of The Twelve Days of Christmas, about a class field trip NYC. It’s basically an arty tourist picture book, where every spread has a famous NYC landmark. I love drawing city life, so when Chad Beckerman offered me the job I was thrilled – knowing I could make it really special and very different from other New York City books. Plus, I always loved ‘This is New York’ by M. Sasek and I saw this as my chance to do my own version.
