Based in Madrid, Bandiz Design Studio focuses on art direction, graphic design, photograph and print design.
Their most recent project plays homage to a selection of TV Series that they couldn’t stay away from; including Breaking Bad, Dexter, Lost, Mad Men and Homeland. Each of the five thematic posters is based on typographical cuts of paper and cardboard set against the characteristic elements and moods of the series.
My personal favorite from the series would have to be the Dexter poster, after recently completed an 8 season Netflix marathon and still struggling with the thought of it all being over. Closely followed by Breaking Bad – of course!
Luciana Frigerio is a photographer from Vermont whose interest in making things with paper has led to her amazing folded book art sculptures. These are created by carefully folding each page of the book to create anything from names and dates, to hearts and stars. All of which can be purchased at her Etsy shop
If you aren’t already aware of the documentary Sign Painters, it is definitely worth giving up 2.37 minutes of your time to watch the trailer below. From filmmakers Faythe Levine and Sam Macon, the documentary looks at the dying art of sign painting and those wanting to bring it back. As recently as the 1980’s in America storefronts, murals, banners, barn signs, billboards, and even street signs were all hand-lettered with brush and paint. But, like many skilled trades, the sign industry has been overrun by the techno-fueled promise of quicker and cheaper.
Starting in 2010, the directors began capturing the artists and their craft from throughout the country, with more than two dozen artists featured, this documentary shines a light on a barely talked-about but interesting little trade.
