We’re rolling with the Pirate theme. First Office’s design for 826 Valencia’s new store and now Booty Juggler, a fun new game designed/animated by Robin Davey and built by Ben Templeton of Thought Den. The look of the game was inspired by vintage poster and animation design, the nautical tattoos of Sailor Jerry, and scruffy screenprinted goodness.
Give it a toss here.
Argh! The swashbuckling design crew Office worked on the above branding for 826 Valencia’s new pirate supply store. They designed the store’s identity, posters and nearly 50 new products, like Decent Peg Leg Oil, Scurvy BeGone pills and Captain Blackbeard’s Beard Extensions. If you’d benefit from any of these products, or to help out 826 Valencia, cruise by the shop.

The Scout has an excellent interview with Marilyn Neuhart. Marilyn along with her husband John worked as designers in the Eames Office during the late 1950s. She also worked with Alexander Girard in developing the graphics as well as a line of dolls for Girard’s Textile & Objects Shop in New York City. In part of the interview, Marilyn mentions that she would drive around Los Angeles with Girard looking for toys and folk art. That must of been a blast.
Hello to London based designer Nick Dart. Mr. Dart has a nice collection of CD packaging, poster and print work over on his site. Besides this design for the number two, I was really impressed by his great typeface and logo designs. Definitely one of the top numeral designers out there, for sure.
LAX map designed by Dotan & Associates in 1982
Just found this LAX map. The pictograms on the front are very similar to the identity work of Otl Aicher for the 1972 Munich Olympics.
Whats with the obnoxious use of question marks? That’s really ruining my mello.

My wife and I just started watching Mad Men and I think we’re hooked. Every Sunday night we run upstairs to catch all the dirt going down with the Drapers and the rest of the lot. Not to mention, drool over all the cool furniture! That house in Palm Springs in tonight’s episode had some amazing mid century modern pieces including George Nelson cigar bubble lamps and an Eero Saarinen womb chair. Besides the furniture, I love looking at the type they use on the sets. Mark Simonson has a great post on his blog regarding the type choices for the show.
Thank you everyone for taking part in our giveaway! We had over 1,400 people enter. It was great to see all your comments and look forward to another year.
