Austrian graphic designer and self-confessed TV fan Albert Exergian has created a series of strikingly minimal posters with a humorous take on popular TV shows. Their iconic design has been such a hit that online gallery Blanka are turning the  full collection into A1 Giclee Prints.

I’m loving this info-graphic film, by Kenichi Tanaka, about the strange and wonderful Japan.

These thermo-sensitive business cards are a killer idea by French agency Murmure. One series of cards appear jet black on both sides. It’s only through the warmth of human touch that the images on them are revealled.

I am in awe of Johann Volkmer’s Faltjahr 2010 pop-up calendar. Check out the crafting of it here.

Studio Lin collaborated with Lisa Naftolin to design these invitations for Erwan Frotin’s Wildflowers exhibition at Art+Commerce. As for the airbrushed edges – this blog is not worthy.

Homage to the stamp

As a fan of the stamp (I have a moderately geeky collection), I was really taken with Gavin Potenza’s sublime letterpress print ‘Homage to the Stamp’. A limited run of 200 were released in conjunction with his poster, A Field Guide to the Stamps of the World, created for Tiny Showcase’s Learning Press – a new series of “mildly factual, mostly fictitious, educational posters”. I would love to add these make-believe stamps to my collection.
