100 Years of Grand Central Station

Constelations-Design Crush

There’s no denying that New York’s Grand Central Station is magical. This February the icon turns one hundred, and to celebrate Pop Chart Lab has released Constellations. The print was commissioned by the MTA’s Arts for Transit and Urban Design program and features the famed four-sides clock and constellation-filled ceiling. It will be seen around the subway system, but you can purchase your own right here.

Fort Trays

Fort Trays-1-Design Crush

 

Donna Wilson can do now wrong, and her Fort Trays are the latest proof of that statement. The design is based on storybook medieval castles, the trays themselves are then made from laminated birch wood in Sweden. Three color choices offer a *POP* of color for these dreary winter months, great for displays and parties alike.

Anatomy + Phrenology

Maiden Voyage-1-Design Crush

 

I love a good scientific print, don’t you? Maiden Voyage has taken on the task of showing us not only what a sailor is made of, but also the inner workings of a gentleman. Both prints were created using an old-school offset press method, making each one special and unique.

Space Race

Justin Van Genderen-1-Design Crush

 

I’ve always been fascinated by space (thank you, Space Camp!) and I know I’m not alone. Somehow we human beings have managed to begin exploring that big, black void with the hope that we’ll be able to unlock all of its mysteries. Artist Justin Van Genderen has created a series of six graphic posters focused on the U.S.’s side of the space race – Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo – three type-based and three more scientific in design. (via The Fox is Black)

Top 40 Posts Of 2012

A few weeks ago I was taking a look through the past year in posts and decided to put together a Top 40 collection for 2012.
