Philly’s Litter Critters

A few years ago, Philly was the premier city to roll out 500 high-tech Big Belly trash compactors. Today, these treasured rubbish receptacles have been affectionately transformed into works of art known as “litter critters” within the South Street district between 2nd and 10th street.

The wonderfully inspiring Mural Arts Program is behind the initiative as part of their Big Picture Educational program, which was created to encourage social responsibility in youth ages 10-14. The students in Big Picture produced the drawings and Ben Woodward & Tom Lessner of Space 1026 helped to design as wraps.

¡Muchísimas Gracias a Chris Gatto!

The Business Card With Some Balls

One wonders if the use of these understated, socially relevant, ass-whooping cards could actually be the first step eradicating atrocious parking habits. From personal observation, these little billets would sell like hot cakes in the SF Bay Area where it would seem as though parking lines were drawn with invisible paint…

Big Up!

Our friends over at Poster for Tomorrow recently launched their 2011 edition: right for education call for entries. Submissions are accepted up until July 10th.

poster for tomorrow presents: the Pan African Workshops 2011 from poster for tomorrow on Vimeo.

To coincide with this year’s theme Poster for Tomorrow has launched and organized a series of workshops to promising design students in a myriad of African countries. Workshops have already been successfully held in Ghana, Guinea, and Morocco, with more to come in Botswana, Kenya, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Tunisia. The goal is to provide young African designers with a set of tools and contacts that will give them better access to the international market, and to set up a longer-term platform for design in their own countries.

Classic & Modern Under the Same Roof

The creative minds of Terry & Terry Architecture designed this San Francisco townhouse which maintains a classic Victorian front & exterior while the rear of the house boasts a contrasting, modern style.

In their words:

While maintaining parts of the original Victorian layout, Terry & Terry Architecture designed a new rear portion of the house, adding bathrooms, bedrooms, and an open concept kitchen, dining, and living area. Also added were outdoor desk spaces, a ground-level patio and tiered exterior stairs.
