Benjamin Button & Prologue film
posted in graphic section on march 17th
Prologue film design the latest David Finsher movie communication tools "The curious case of Benjamin button"... beside the fact that this movie is, as I expect it, full of emotions, I really like to see the process presented on prologue web site.

Also, the official web site of the movie is at the image of the movie : unexpected and in the opposite direction of usual movies web site, showing you the spirit of the movie instead of a simple biography of the director and actors... So, Ijust show you this and let discover it by yourself.
3 photographers
posted in photo section on march 14th
I really focus on print and identity lately as it is my main work... but now it is week end and time for some emotions... Here comes 3 photographers...
The work of Benoit Paillé is very good, but also what is behind his work... I admire is availability to ask unknow people to be photographied, something I can never imagine to do... He also seems to like feet in water ;)
Second is Irene Suchocki. &
And thirs is Rengim Mutevellioglu. Here pictures of "Moules" bring me directly to my childwood when I do this with my grand father... there are not pictures, there are memories....

Chris Ashworth
posted in exellence section on march 11th
Chris was one of the former art director of Ray Gun publishing. Even if his recent works (specially Getty) are stunning, the main inspiration source for me is his work in the 90's on ray gun magazine and others...The Michael Stipe Photography book "2xintro" as well as the Ray gun book ar still in my library and where some of the first to be there when I was student...

Typographic Lock-ups & Enclosures
posted in identity sections on march 06th

Type Theory is a "journal of contemporary typography" by Ty Wilkins. You may think this is just another type blog, but after only being on the scene since January of this year Type Theory is quickly becoming an indispensable reference. Ty currently works as a graphic designer for Gardner Design and is also involved in the behind the scenes work on LogoLounge. I discovered his site via the images below posted to ffffound.

The following logos are the work of Brian Miller. As Ty said in his article, "When given a long string of words, he can transform them into a sophisticated typographic concoction. As the Vice President and Senior Art Director of Gardner Design, Brian has many opportunities to apply his type prowess to the art of logo design. In situations where many designers would be inclined to complain of copy overload, Brian excels at elegantly composing lengthy phrases and titles.

"Each logo is an example of either a 'typographic lock-up' or 'typographic enclosure.' Several logos fall under both categories. All logos seen were presented to the client. Some were selected as the final logo and others have been waiting in the Gardner Design archives until now."

Stunning! & Brian logo article
Tolleson design 2
added to exellence section on march 4th

Some years ago, when I was a young designer, I buy a book, called "Tolleson design"... it is my bible... I already published a selection of their work in the excellence section, based on images they have on their web site but never publish these, which are pictures I took from their book. So, they now have 2 exellence page...

The use of fonts and details is simply the best I ever seen...

See all selected images in the Tolleson 2nd exellence page...
Check also their first exellence page with images from their web site.
