10 Images for Ithaca

Now in its 8th year, Ten Images for Ithaca 2009 is now open for entries. Submit your work here.

“Ten Images for Ithaca” is a poster competition. It began in 2002, by Fimios, Cultural Events of the Municipality of Ithaca, Greece, as an attempt to reinforce the cultural profile of the island, through the applied arts. Throughout the years, the competition has evolved to a whole group of events and exhibitions, so that, today, it is considered a point of interest for professionals, students and, generally, people that are interested in graphic arts. The contest’s main goal is not only to accent Ithaca as a meeting point for creative people from all over the planet, but, also, to help create ideas that promote the art of visual communication.

Where the Wild Things Are

We have to admit this is one of VC’s favorite children’s books of all time. Just last week we had the luxury of walking through a major retrospective of Sendak’s work at the Rosenbach Museum. Here’s the trailer of the much anticipated film adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s classic 1963 children’s book Where the Wild Things which was directed and written by Spike Jonze and Dave Eggers.

His distinct approach to design was the common thread Levi’s was looking for. And boy did he go all out on this one.

He shredded a pair of Levis thread by thread, dismantling studs, zippers, pockets labels — then pieced the elemets back together again. This piece in the end is classic Stefan Sagmeister, with playful typography and infused graphics composed of none other than the deconstructed pieces of a pair of 501 Jeans. (more…)
