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

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.

1976 Montréal Olympics Test Event Posters

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.

chicago the town that van der rohe built

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.
