Poster Series: Classic Cars In The Colors Of Their Home Country's Flag

Scott Wilson spoke to GraphicDesign.com about how these poster came about and explained “As huge Mustang fans, we’re always fascinated by anything that has to do with classic cars, so we’re always thinking of new ideas.

Re-Design of Roald Dahl’s "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory": Worst Book-Cover Published?

Do not judge a book by it’s cover – but readers certainly do. It is the first thing that people see and they certainly expect the cover to relate to the book which in the case of this new version of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” it really doesn’t seem to. The publishers say on their facebook page: “This design is in recognition of the book’s extraordinary cultural impact and is one of the few children’s books to be... CONTINUE READING

Mendelsund Uncovered

He is originally a classically trained pianist He did not formally study design. He is the designer of the now iconic Girl With the Dragon Tattoo book covers. Forget this bulleted list. Take a look at his collaboration with Mark Z. Danielewski and try to imagine how long it takes to create something this elaborately weird.
