Saul Bass Poster Gallery

The man who launched a million minimalist movie posters (try not to hold that against him), graphic designer Saul Bass may have spent most of his career advertising other people’s work, but in doing so he quietly became one of the most iconic pop artists of the 20th century. He didn’t work in the movies very often, but many of the posters and title sequences he created have grown to be as famous as the films for which he created them.  Directors were floored by Bass’ ability to distil a story down to its bare essence — how his thick black lines and bold swatches of colour seduced and focused a viewer’s attention where other posters would simply try to overwhelm it — and legendary auteurs like Otto Preminger would fight the studios to protect Bass’ creative freedom. His style was so striking and influential that it was widely copied in his own time, and many of the posters that are still attributed to Bass were actually created by imitators (e.g West Side Story and It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad World) — via IndieWire

Lights in the windows at Waterloo residences

Lighting up the windows of Waterloo to make statement about public housing

Mary Laumua has become an activist for her community of public housing tenants in the Sydney suburb of Waterloo.

The 37-year-old community worker and mother of four, including seven-month-old baby Nayla, wants to shine a light on the struggles of public housing tenants facing large-scale redevelopment and dislocation.

It’s important because we want everyone in Australia and around the world to know that we matter, she said.

Ms Laumua is part of a small team who have reached out to hundreds of tenants in two high-rise towers set for demolition.

They go into homes to install coloured lights in their windows.

There’s a lot of anxiety around it all, so the lights are a way of expressing how they’re feeling.

We’ve been allowed this glimpse to go into these peoples’ homes, not only to install a light, but see a glimpse of who they are and how their lives matter.

You might just be the one person that makes their day by coming [and] installing those lights — via ABC News

History’s deadliest colours / JV Maranto

When radium was first discovered, its luminous green colour inspired people to add it into beauty products and jewelry. It wasn’t until much later that we realized that radium’s harmful effects outweighed its visual benefits. Unfortunately, radium isn’t the only pigment that historically seemed harmless or useful but turned out to be deadly. JV Maranto details history’s deadliest colours — via Youtube

Pan 70th anniversary: Classic paperbacks gets a retro makeover

If you want to catch up with some classics, then you might want to check out the books reissued as part of the Pan 70th anniversary. The iconic publisher is celebrating 70 years of paperback fiction and as such, has seen plenty of notable releases over the decades. Some of those are returning as part of this anniversary series. The literature, as you would expect, is unchanged. But the new covers are bold and striking, oozing retro cool. For a label known for its cover art, that’s obviously the idea. Titles include The Time Machine by HG Wells, Jaws by Peter Benchley, The Pan Book Of Horror Stories, The Dam Busters by Paul Brickhill and The Thirty-Nine Steps by John Buchan to name a few. All are available from September and available to pre-order now, selling for £7 each — via Retro to Go

Megalodon 2016 / Nemo Gould

Fine artist and self-described master hoarder Nemo Gould conjures up fantastic sculptures made entirely of found objects. Rich wood and gleaming chrome catch the eye as they cycle through their kinetic loops, while tentacles and antennae extend in a playful fashion like a sci-fi comic book come to life.

The Megalodon is Gould’s latest work, a 16-foot-long salvaged fuel tank from an F-94 bomber plane’s wing. The shark has working propellers for fins, and a tail that glides back and forth ominously. A cutaway on the side reveals various boiler and control rooms, each with their own delicately installed moving parts. It’s packed full of tiny human figures and whimsical creatures alike, all in mid-task as they operate their predatory underwater vessel — via Make:

Micro-Scale Modeling / Joshua Smith

Joshua Smith, a miniaturist and former stencil artist based in South Australia, constructs tiny, intricate worlds for a living. His work, which exhibits astonishing observational and representational skills, focuses on the overlooked aspects of the urban environment — such as grime, rust and decay to discarded cigarettes and graffiti, all recreated at a scale of 1:20. Smith, who has been making model kits for around a decade, only recently chose to move away from a 16-year-long career creating stencil art — via ArchDaily
