Geoff Wagner

Geoff Wagner

While sifting through Geoff’s site today, it was very hard to find that one thing to show, because it’s all so good. Lots of fun stuff, with lots of personality. I totally love that medicine cabinet print. By day Geoff works for Chronicle Books; by night I don’t know what he does. Sleep, maybe? Anyhow, he is a master at taking various ideas and making them look terrific.

Aaron Draplin: Design Work and Motel Signs

aaron-draplin-1

Aaron Draplin runs a tight ship. Not only is he an amazing designer, he puts together one hell of a blog. I look forward to checking his site every morning. The guy is a knowledge farm for all things vintage and he always digs up incredible stuff on his notorious road trips.

Lots of great stuff to see on his site, but start by checking out some of his design work.

British Railways Memorabilia

British Railways Services and Fares booklets for the Riviera (L) Sept 1962 (R) May 1959

Tony Hillman has put together an amazing collection of British Railways publicity material. His site features posters, menus, booklets, brochures, tickets, timetables and commercials. Put some time aside because there is plenty of good stuff too look at here.

(Huge round of thanks goes to Tika Viker-Bloss for sending this my way)

Sandra Juto

Sandra Juto

Gothenburg, Sweden’s own Sandra Juto has a great collection of work up on her site. Her work is a mix of illustration, collage, crochet, and design. I love her illustration style; simplistic with nice details, and some cool type!

She also has a shop, a blog, and a flickr. Her “At home” flickr set it pretty fun.

1960s – 1980s Which? Magazine Covers

which-magazine-covers

Which? magazine offers reviews and advice for various products and services. It looks like it’s a British version of Consumer Reports magazine. In addition, to the cool cover each issue features interesting information graphics and illustrations. Some of the illustrations remind me of the work of Bill Sokol. Anyone know who the art director for the magazine was?

You can check out some of the issues over at the always yummy Delicious Industries.

Morten Iveland

Morten Iveland
I love this image of Morten Iveland’s new typeface, Bolda. Apparently it’s inspired by 1970′s tennis, dart, and ping-pong fashion — a grossly under-represented field of design, in my opinion. Morten lives in Oslo, Norway, where he is a designer at Apt. I was immediately drawn to the design of his site, and his mad photo skills.

Check out Bolda in action.
