Batman Typed Up

I came across this t-shirt design today while I was shopping. This was a nice iconic image of Batman but with the type design  really made it stand out as being fresh and new. You couldn’t really notice the text but you got closer to look at it – the text started to become clearer. I really like how the variation of text size is still clear to read and the image of Batman of only being two color complements the gray t-shirt.

Dark has never looked to classy

The styling of Regina, the Evil Queen is the series has always been dark  high end fashion. The touch of the lace head piece really softens the face. The darkness of the background and the pop of color in the foreground really helps with the portrayal of depth.

A modern classic

An iconic New York print has a modern take. I really like the black collar and sleeves – there is a clean finish and implied frame of the tiled print.

Just simply too funny

Saw this this morning and loved it. A simple cartoon. No color, simple sounds and no flashy graphics. A nice tribute to comics.

Saw this ad for the 50 Shades of Grey Movie. I have not read the books but I intrigued but the poster. For a clean, modern and airy design I feel like it is an ad for a Mens’ watch, cologne or  suit. I think that having Mr.  Grey’s back towards us adds a sense of mystery and allows the perspective to be forced for on lookers of the poster. We get the sense that we are walking into the room.

 

 

Simply Classic

This simple ad for National Martini Day is retro classic. Love the classy color choice! It not to dark with the use of black and red…. The silhouettes play with the eye and with the color blocking- both elements really balances out the design.  I find the color blocking for martini /thursday and then for day / june 19th  interesting. It really helps the association with day and the date with out being to bulky and taking away from the silhouettes .

Black and white is not always dark and gloomy

Maleficent-2014-Movie-Poster

Went to see Maleficent and was very impressed!! It is  a must see movie – very impressive story line and character development. The campaign was a mix of movie posters and commercials but I am very impressed with this poster design the symetical design is very simple and in fashion a strong lip with a pop of color is a must. But this image is not so gloomy and dark – its a mixture of whimsical and high couture.

Black Box

Saw an ad for this new ABC show and decided to watch it based on the ad, not as much as for the story line but after seeing the previews and after seeing the first episodes it kinda all makes sense. The black box is not as literal as the name – there is focus on the inside, not the outside. So thinking outside the box is not always the best, examining all the components on the inside can be the key. Catherine Black  a neurologist who also happens to  have bipolar disorder helps her patients by focusing on them, their mind and their disorder.

I has seen this music video ”  Love Somebody” by Maroon 5 and really like the over all concept.  I know some music videos really play up the storyline of the video and need visuals to help with the understanding of the lyrics but this so simple. Playing with the concept of finding that someone to love and feeling complete and that special someone helping you feel complete. Relationships are a challenge to maintain but knowing yourself and taking the time to understand the other person, even if they don’t know themselves completely or vice versa is what loves is taking the time and making the time….. But any ways. This music video  is so simple and allows the viewer to imagine that person, since we do not see the complete image of the man and woman there are no ideal images pushed forward, there is enough present for the imagination to take care of the rest.

The Great Gatsby

Its nice to see that every couple of years there is a remake of some of the original classic novels and movies. I do hope to see the Great Gatsby soon, it happens to be one of my favorite books and this movie has not been over advertised. I know with  the movie release some critics really like it and some just don’t. But is  a  classis story that might have an interesting take but the way society views movies and novels has changed over the years and there is little exception / acceptation  to complex art form….. But with  the movie release, Smirnoff has come out with this vodka for the movie. Its simple and is nice collateral piece in the campaign.
