Coast Modern & Build — Live Through Architecture Not For It

Build Coast Modern Poster

To kickoff the UK launch of the documentary film Coast Modern the filmmakers invited Build to exhibit a series of prints designed exclusively for the event. Build designed the poster above for the show, that will take place at Mead Carney gallery in London. The A1 poster is a two color screen print on Lustralux 215gsm paper, and printed by K2 Screen.

The exhibit will also feature a very limited set of 5 typographic prints, each with a word or statement taken directly from the film.

The filmmakers and the Build team will be at the show, and the film will be screened on Saturday 14th June at 4pm. The prints will be available for purchase at the shop, and on Build’s shop.

Wish. I. Were. In. London. Damnit. More info below:

Argentina 78? World Cup Poster

Argentina 78? World Cup Poster

Totally forgot about this poster until some folks on Twitter reminded me about it. Beautiful work, but no info on who designed it. Argentina was going through a dark time then, so any info on it was probably lost. A shame.

Glory Glory

Sometimes I wish I lived in the UK, so that I can attend all these great design exhibitions. Glory Glory is one of them, an upcoming exhibition and book of large format typographic posters based on football (soccer) chants. Some of the contributors are Ben Bos, Wim Crouwel, Bibliothèque, Build, Craig Oldham, Experimental Jetset, Mash Creative, SEA, Spin, Dave Sedgwick, and many more.

The exhibition will take place tomorrow at:

Hoxton Arches
37 Cremer Street
London E2 8HD

All proceeds will go to British Blind Sport.

This great exhibition is curated by Nick Blakeman, Alex Brown and Craig Oldham, and sponsored by Gavin Martin Colournet and GF Smith.

I haven’t been able to find any of the posters that were designed for the event, but Dave Sedgwick sent in his awesome contribution, which is pictured above. His piece uses football studs to create the type and the chant is of the Argentinian team, Boca Juniors. It’s made of wood and acrylic, and the rest of the chant is etched into the wood around the edges.

Great designers, great design, for a good cause. Sounds like it’s going to be a fun time. If you’re in London, be sure not to miss this.

Montreal Olympics Test Event Posters

Before the Olympics Games begin, the organizing committee has test events to prepare and rehearse things like transportation, guest services, results/scoring, etc. The design teams also test things like printing and installations, so they create an identity different from what they created for the real games. These are some of the posters created for these “test event” for the 1976 Montréal games. I’ve never seen these before. What a gem.

Flatmade’s story begins with a poster was created by John Massey for Container Corporation of America titled “chicago has a great lake“. They fell in love with the poster, and contacted Mr. Massey to print a new edition of it, and he agreed. They now are producing other classic masterpieces, which you can purchase directly from them. I’ll take one of each, please.
