As part of this year’s London Design Festival, Domenic Lippa of Pentagram has worked with the Festival’s Chairman, Sir John Sorrell, in curating the London Poster Project, a poster exhibition by 20 of the leading UK graphic designers and typographers including Tom Hingston, Frith Kerr, Alan Kitching, Fuel, Jonathan Ellery and Pentagram’s own Angus Hyland. Lippa commissioned the designers to produce a poster in red and black only that celebrates London as the creative capital of the world. Each silkscreened A1 poster was produced in limited edition of 100, 50 of which are available through the website Blanka. All 20 posters can be seen in the exhibition, which opened Saturday, 19 September and remains on view through 27th September at the Sackler Centre at the Victoria & Albert Museum. Via New at Pentagram.
From the ones I’ve seen this one by Studio Frith put a smile on my face.
Not a lot of design does that these days.

Back in late ’08 British graphic designers were asked to express their relationship with Tokyo in the form of a poster. The results formed an exhibition ‘How Very Tokyo’ curated by Studio Kanna. The prints are now available to buy from the Open Library shop. Bibliothéque, Spin, North and Browns amongst others contributed. Photos from the printers and exhibition can be seen at their Flickr set here. Via GC.

Artists who’s work will be on display include: Mr Ian Wright, Hellovon, Non Format, Corey Holms, Grandpeople, Marian Bantjes, Tomer Hanuka, Pure Evil, James Joyce, Michael Gillette and Many More.
Will and Alex come up trumps with another installment of their Limited Edition “If You Could” poster series for April, in the form of Joe Burrin & Tom Crabtree and Korner Union. They run out in 14 days!!
Students with skills. No pressure then!?!?
Nicked from FormFiftyFive.
This is the first preview of any submissions, created for the forthcoming film inspired design project “Now Showing”, curated by myself (WIWP). This one by “WeBuyYourKids” is one of latest to get sent in, and is their interpretation of the 1977 horror flick “Suspiria”. Really Nice! No fixed dates for the Launch yet, but I’m thinking April/May now.
I just received this in the post today. A really nice two colour hand silk-screen print by one of my favourite artists, Kate Gibb — created in conjunction with “If You Could”. It measures 700 x 500 mm in size, is signed / numbered and is on some seriously nice stock. This piece is now sold out, but they have just released 2 others by Anthony Burrill and Siggi Eggertsson.
Be quick, they expire in 19 days.
Made in the Dark by Wallzo. Limited edition of 75 units only – exclusive to Blanka. Screenprinted grey on 3m celloglas bronze foil paper. Beautiful.
