Kaufmann House designed by Richard Neutra in 1946
This looks like its going to be a must see flick for modern architecture fans.
Filmmakers Michael Bernard and Gavin Froome have created a documentary that will take you on a journey through three generations of modern architecture on the West Coast of North America.
This film speaks with the architects and their patrons, and asks if Modernism’s time has finally come or did it ever really go away.

What a way to hold your keys! These Alphabet! keychains by Mike Davis of Burlesque Design are not only fun, but functional too! Originally created as a poster design and gift for his niece, these little letters are now a series of vinyl zipper pull keychains for Kidrobot. Each tiny colorful package contains a surprise letter. Mmm…the letters “B” and “D” look so delicious!
Free fonts are a dime a dozen — there are so many of them, and so many of them are bad. That’s why I was excited to run across Sessions, a beautiful face designed by John Skelton. John designed Sessions using FontStruct, FontShop‘s online (and free) type construction tool.

The latest addition to our Grain Edit interview series takes us to the sunny, pigeon littered streets of Los Angeles: home to Hollywood – movie capital of the world, and artist Kevin Dart. Heavily inspired by films and artwork from the ’60s, Kevin beautifully creates the dazzling, glamorous, exciting world of Yuki 7: a gorgeous feisty international globe-trotting spy.
In today’s interview, Kevin transports us to the year 30,000, discusses his adventurous background, and of course his inspiration for creating the Yuki 7 character. Before we get started, here are a few examples of Kevin’s work…
The National live at the Tabernacle, Atlanta – concert poster 18″x24″
This week’s poster pick features another cutting edge design from Methane Studios. The overall design is simple and understated, but manages to remain visually engaging. The subtleties in this poster are exactly what make it interesting to look at. I really like everything about how the band name is presented and appreciate the sense of depth created by the paper knife. There is great use of space and type throughout , I especially like how the type is managed at the very bottom of this poster.
