American Graphic Arts Legend, Saul Bass, would have been 94 today

Design // Thursday, May 08, 2014
On May 8, 1920, one of the most iconic and influential graphic designers, Saul Bass, was born. Every year, we like to honor Bass by remembering just how amazing and influential his work was, from film posters and opening sequences to famous films. Bass did work for seminal films like Psycho, North By Northwest, Vertigo, Anatomy of a Murder, West Side Story, Cape Fear, Goodfellas, Casino, and many more. In honor of the man, who passed away in 1996, here is a collection of his great posters, and a few of our favorite opening title sequences...

Pick Me Up 2014 @ Somerset House, London

Design // Friday, April 25, 2014
It seems about right. We noticed on April 2014 cover artist Andy Rementer's Instagram that he did a t-shirt for DC Shoes and Pick Me Up 2014, one of the best if not THE BEST graphic arts festivals in the world. And what seems right about it is that we learned about Rementer's work at the festival a few years back. Pick Me Up is held annually at the Somerset House in London, and basically get the right people together to show the right kind of graphic and illustrative and design arts.
