Restaurants are required by law in New York and most other states to post instructions on how to save someone who is choking. However, in the last couple of years NYC restaurant owners have started to replace the official poster (designed by Steve Duenes) with new ones designed by local artists, illustrators, and designers.

We are always happy to see Frederico Babina’s artsy and colorful collections combing architectural elements and inviting themes. “Archimusic” is another contemporary approach to transform 27 popular songs by David Bowe, Miles Davis, Pink Floyd, The White Stripes, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart…to name a few, into graphic design. Representing the horizon with a music stanza, the composition morphs together displaying a fun illustrative building idea to represent many musicians.

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...

The Soviets were really good at making poster art in the form of propaganda, so good that even the most horrible messages had a begrudgingly nice look. But we have to say, when the Soviet graphic artists wanted to tackle anti-alcohol subjects, they make it damn effective.

Jive Time Records, a Seattle-based store specializing in used vinyl has put together a little blog where they have been collecting minimal vintage album cover design, or to be more specific, a "shrine to circles and dots, squares and rectangles, and triangles, and the designers that make these simple shapes come to life on vintage album covers."

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.
