During the mid-70s there was a series of posters in Tokyo that featured appropriations of iconic western icons and promoted proper subway etiquette. The posters ran from 1974 to 1982 and were the work of Hideya Kawakita, a graphic designer who had a huge imace on the image of Tokyo's subway.

This is fun. Someone took the exact scenes of films that are used on various film posters and created GIFs of posters. It's only a matter of time until we can expect something similar on a billboard in the near future...

With the Sochi Winter Olympics starting next month, we here in the office got to wondering what the promotional materials and posters looked like for the Winter Olympics when they first started in 1924. This lead to us finding some pretty amazing vintage Olympics posters (and lets be honest, some pretty bad ones too...). Enjoy!

To celebrate the 80th birthday of King Kong, Dark City Gallery teamed up with La Boca for a series of prints focusing on 'what is essentially a classic story of forbidden love, rather than the misunderstood ferociousness often attributed to our hero.'

We always love looking at old advertisements, it's always fascinating to see what audience they were aiming for and what was cool in that particular period. These Levi's ads from the 70s reflect some pretty interesting social changes in going on in as the 60s was ending and the strangeness of the 70s were beginning in America.
