Hollywood Star Charts

Hollywoord Star Charts-1-Design Crush

 

If you’re in any way a film buff, you’re going to want to read closely. Check out DOROTHY’S Hollywood Star Charts, celebrating some of the most culturally significant films and actors to have graced the silver screen since 1927. There are two different versions – one featuring Golden Age stars at the other Modern Day. Both re-imagine constellations as American films and re-name the stars that make up the clusters after the Hollywood greats that appeared in them. So good.

Choose from three park maps – Grand Teton, Yosemite, or Yellowstone – that are designed, silk screened, and numbered in St. Paul, MN.

Public Works

 

You’ve heard of Public, yes? The San Francisco-based bike company recently invited 27 designer-types to create a poster that reflected on what the idea of “public” means to them, with a focus on reclaiming urban streets, sidewalks, and other spaces in the Public Works project. The series turned out great (big surprise) and now you can make them your own. Which one is your favorite?

Flat Life

 

A poster that actually tells time. Another that illuminates like a lamp. And a third that delivers sound. It’s safe to say that artist Finn Magee knows how to think outside the box and execute. The Flat Time and Flat Light posters function with the use of LED lights, while Flat Sound employs the thinnest speaker commercially available.
