Nothing More Nothing Less


We thought this collection was appropriate given the opening of the much anticipated film Objectified. This particular series of objects showcases the “hand dryer”. The images are a culmination of Douglas Wilson’s travels around the world.

CR Taxi: Made In Mumbai

In January Creative Review incorporated woodblock type from São Paulo and hand-lettering from Amsterdam for their February issue. Determined to stay consistent within this theme of “taking a list of the issue’s content and asking a contributor to create a layout for us in their own style.” CR referred back to a trip to Mumbai for inspiration for the April “Type and Typography” issue and commissioned taxi artists from Mumbai to work their magic.

For any design-aware visitor, Mumbai’s yellow and black taxis, which constitute a major part of the city’s horrendous traffic, are a wondrous sight. The majority are richly decorated with a litany of the driver’s favourite things: like a MySpace page on wheels.

Head over to CR Blog for a detailed post documenting the story and process of developing their very own CR Taxi.

Abandoned Newspaper Racks


Detail:

These somber images of unwanted newspaper racks in a Belmont, CA storage yard pretty much sum up the state of the publishing industry.

Update: The boxes belonged to the San Francisco Chronicle and had been removed per city rules, not due to recession. We apologize for the mistake. Thanks Michael for the tip.
