& Pizza

Saw this in Ronald Reagan Airport and it stood out on the line up restaurants. I really like the simple use of the ampersand and it being black and white. & is a simple quick read. With the hustle of being in an airport, you don’t always have time to stop and read a sign. There is consistency; the photos in the restaurant and the pizza boxes are black and white. Overall the ideas and concept are simple and focus on the customer  & pizza.

Realism

Came across this label and it really takes me back to my college lecture. I was a fan of my art history classes and this label gives me a sense of realism. Having to think back to my lectures and studio classes all I can recall is Degas. Eward Degas, a french painter who’s style included realism did portray individuals in their element. There are portraits of the female model with her back exposed in Degas’ paintings. This label is a detailed illustration of yhe human form and the title is appropriate, for that little sense of humor.

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.

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.

 

 

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.
