HERE IS THE NEW JOKER!

Posted in Graphic design by stylecouch on February 18, 2010

Playing cards is an old tradition, but Jim Sutherland from Hat-trick Design now made it possible to do it with style. He designed a full set, i.e 52 cards+ 2 jokers without using any repeated typofaces or alteration typofaces. It must have been quite a challenge but also a cool project of small single designs, however they are fitting each other very well in a group!

Art you can do out of pencil!

Posted in Art, Fashion, Graphic design, Sketches by stylecouch on December 15, 2009

John-Paul Thurlow, artist and magazine cover graphic designer, is recasting his favorite covers with a bit of paper and a pencil. His blog ‘Covers‘ is a hommage to the creative men and women who produce such disposable perfection – in his words: “With each Cover I take a perfect mass-produced object and turn it into a fucked up one-off. Don’t expect perfection here, that’s not the way I see beauty in the world.” In 2010 he is also planing a limited edition book, which should be already on the wishlist of all graphic design lovers.

Everything I have!

There was a time before GOOGLE

Posted in Art, Fashion, Fun, Graphic design by stylecouch on November 18, 2009

I am not sure if somebody can imagine a world without GOOGLE at this time, but I think it is worth to spend some thoughts on the time before the googlization starts on the 4th of Sepetmber 1998. Even that GOOGLE makes live so much easier, it also takes away a big part of communication and challenging. Anyway I found this funny postcard, which is a good reminder to think how the world would look like without GOOGLE.
