2010 Calendar: Think Green

More than 100 designers will be published in the publication. 53 designers have a special podium as a weekly theme. “Think Green!” creates for the year 2010, a visual inventory of the topic of ecology and design. In addition to individual, for this project developed typography, the calendar shows ideas in the context of raw materials, energy and the environment in different countries.

We were lucky enough to be asked to be represented in this showcase of progressive work and are anxiously awaiting our copy. To learn more about EIGA—the people behind it and how to snag a copy for 2010 click here.

Typographic City Maps

Jenny Beorkrem, founder of Ork Posters has designed a stunning series of typographic maps of select cities in the United States.

Beorkrem states:
“I embarked on a search for a neighborhood poster that fit my taste for good design and typography, simplicity, and originality. My hunt came up empty. As a result, I designed the original Chicago poster in the summer of 2007 for myself.”

The SF Map will be hanging on our wall very soon. For more on Ork Posters you know what to do.
