Henry (Harry) Beck was the man responsible for the London Underground Map as we know it today. Prior to the 1930's the map had always been laid out geographically. However, Beck believed that passengers weren't interested in geographical accuracy but were more interested in knowing how to get from one station to th...

An especially interesting post for the PT guys in the UK just about to embark into the world of colour. Quite amazing in the pictures, I'm sure the impact in person would be heightened considerably — I can't quite imagine sitting reading a book in the aqua library, but it'd be ...

Created by Koei Industry, it works much like a dot matrix printer, recreating images from a PC that it's linked up to. Pretty stunning results! (Thanks for the find Maz). You may have seen the ...

This is a recent project for an uber chic boutique by Edge & Barret, a great young(ish) studio based in East London (just around the corner from our London college actually!). The work, for 11 Boundary, is a great example of those briefs where you need to create ...

In May an army of volunteers plant a variety of different coloured rice in a precise patterns created on a computer. The rice field art is only visible until September when the rice is harvested. To see a time lapse video of the emerging a...

It's fantastic to see exactly how Village Green created this branding for the BFI Film Festival 2010. No there are no shortcuts or photoshop tricks its all done by hand... Beautiful!...

I found these guys through an image of a beautiful looking mural and signage for a restaurant. Having delved a little more into their work I realised that I had perhaps seen their other projects through various design portals. Concrete are a Toronto design practice who describe themselves as having an eclectic array of clients from large c...
