Ivan Markovic

22 May 2009

Received a nice little email from Ivan Markovic, highlighting his recent project for Paris Calling – a Franco-British season of performing arts. His work is crisp; I’m especially loving the typographic poster shown above.

With the UN Climate Change Summit approaching in December, participants of the Cannes Young Lions competition were given 48 hours to create an ad for Oxfam GB reminding everyone to save the world from the effects of climate change. The competition is via YouTube and there are some good ones there. The video above is one of my favorites.

Popshot Magazine

19 May 2009

Popshot is a poetry and illustration magazine gently intent on hoodwinking poetry back from the clammy hands of tweed jackets and school anthologies. It is not a namedrop session or a further attempt to immortalize the great poets of days gone by. We are here to showcase the poetry of today and tomorrow with the whimsical arms of illustration wrapped tightly round it. We are of the thought that the future of poetry is even more exciting than the past.
