grainedit featured old video game design recently. I love the picture above. The two guys to the left are totally into it and freaking out yet the three others are unaffected in conversation. tehe... I need to start drawing more '70s typography.
Head over to LensCulture to read and see more about Edmund Clark's "If the Light Goes Out: Home From Guantanamo". He does a wonderful job at contrasting the scene at Gitmo with the actual homes of some of the detainees to show the humanity of the prisoners.
This video makes me excited. Why? I'm writing my thesis on typography in Mexico! It's weird to see the parallels to the '68 Olympics- it's the first conference of the Association Typographique Internacionale in Latin America and Mexico is chosen for it's tradition, culture and innovation? I don't think it'll be associated with a student movement though.
Brand New details the new Guitar Hero typo revamp. I'm really digging these designs for the newest spin-offs- DJ Hero and Band Hero. They are definitely invoking different styles- from the hard rock we are used to for Guitar Hero to the '70s disco for DJ Hero and the almost fantasy treatment for Band Hero. I love it!
Stefan Kanchev's work caught my eye on grainedit with his beautiful work (above) using clean graphics and a host of bright lines and shapes. Then I peeked over at his website and realized that his logos and stamps had made him "National Artist"in Bulgaria 1971. Below is his logo for the Central Puppet Theater in Sofia.
