I've moved! (not really)

Check out my new Prosite on Behance here!

It will be my main website, but it will still link directly to this blog so I can continue to post and take advantage of Blogger's ability to link to specific posts.


Why I Like Herb Lubalin's Sound of Music Logo

This is Herb Lubalin’s logo for The Sound of Music, used on a souvenir brochure for the movie.

Interesting fact:
“Rather than accept payment by royalty, Lubalin insisted on a large fee. By doing so, he missed an opportunity to make a great deal of money. The Sound of Music, released in 1965, went on to be one of the most successful movies of all time.”

Three great things about Tim Doyle's Robocop poster

This is a poster that Tim Doyle designed for the Castro Theater.

“Murphy’s Frankenstein existence is designed from head to toe to be a Cop who acts on his pre-programmed directives, but who he is comes through regardless- much to the disappointment of his employer/manufacturer. And that’s what I wanted to depict here, the man coming through the machine.”

Why I like Jay Shaw’s Robocop poster

This is a poster that designer Jay Shaw created for the Alamo Drafthouse.

It makes sense to watch a film and say, ‘the story is about that so this image should communicate that idea well.’ Every idea can be broken down to some base image, it’s just a matter of figuring out what the image is.”

Why I like this Garo cover from 1968
