Lunch Time Poster: Number 5


Today’s lunch-time poster: You are…
I recently saw “The Help” and really liked this line from the movie. As a father to a little baby girl I’ve thought about what I want to say to her to help her along the way and this line seemed perfect.

Illustration Friday: Identical


"The idea behind the tuxedo is the woman's point of view that men are all the same; so we might as well dress them that way. That's why a wedding is like the joining together of a beautiful, glowing bride and some guy. The tuxedo is a wedding safety device, created by women because they know that men are undependable. So in case the groom chickens out, everybody just takes one step over, and she marries the next guy." — Jerry Seinfeld

Church Sketch

This week’s church sketch. If I ever need to cast a Batman movie with people from church, this guy is definitely playing Commissioner Gordon.

Workin'


Lunch time work poster, meaning I made this during lunch today and it's about work. As a kid I would listen to this Fraggle Rock record and it had a song that started out that way. Not sure if anyone else remembers it, but for some reason today it came to mind. I hope to make more "Workin" type posters in the future.

Traveling at the Speed of Hertz






I've seen these Hertz commercials a few times now and each time I've been impressed with the animation. There great looking, simple, to the point and well branded commercials. I wanted to know who made them and found a very informative article on Cartoon Brew. Apparently they were done by Blacklist and Studio AKA. Here's an excerpt from the article:

"Working with Blacklist to come up with some designs for the new campaign, Studio AKA looked to sought after Designer Christopher Gray to come up with what had to be a strikingly minimal yet still engaging look to carry across the campaign. Gray’s designs hit the spot with Hertz and AKA teamed him up with recent Oscar Nominated director Grant Orchard to collaborate on the campaign. In addition to the stand alone mnemonic which starts each spot, AKA were tasked with tweaking the existing Hertz mascot Horatio to fit the more angular stylings of the end campaign – and with the reassuring VO courtesy of Owen Wilson – the spots were kept deliberately sparse, with effort made to hold back on excessive details. The 2D character & set elements animation were created by hand in Flash with the 3D vehicles were built & composited in XSI and After Effects. The Series rolls out over the next few months and the result is a beautifully restrained campaign befitting of Studio AKA."

Typographic Revolt



In an effort to bring their Exclusive Faces range to a larger audience, HypeForType approached graphic designer Ryan Atkinson to produce their first magazine release Typographic Revolt. The brief was to produce a 16 page A2 magazine with a twist. Instead of following the traditional convention, Ryan designed a quick read through A2 magazine which also doubles up as a set of 4 Exclusive Faces posters. Each page folds out to create a double sided poster perfect for your studio or home wall space. Typographic Revolt is printed as a limited litho run on 90gsm wood free paper, giving everything a premium newspaper feel which absorbs the inks to create a beautiful desaturated look and feel. Typographic Revolt is available now through Amazon.
