Inspiration: Week of April 30, 2012
A truly enjoyable collection of soccer legend posters, each with its own unique style. For fans of beautiful design and the beautiful game alike (yes, I'm biased).
Woodford Racing Posters
A series of artistic posters to promote investing in thoroughbred racing partnerships. For me, the minimalist watercolor style invokes a dream-like feel that's in harmony with the aspirational messaging.
Printed Electronics is an emerging technology. Its manifestation in "Paper App" form is a mashup of electronics, print and digital content. This particular project is centered on music, but I'm interested in seeing applications that also leverage other forms of digital content. What do you think... revolutionary or gimmicky?

A fun app that turns your iPad into a digital letterpress. Kudos to LetterMpress for helping keep this production form on our increasingly-digital radar screen.
For Print Only
FPO (For Print Only) celebrates "the reality that print is not dead by showcasing the most compelling printed projects." Not only does this site contain plenty of inspiration from the world of print design, its well thought-out taxonomy and browse-ability makes for extended and enjoyable visits.
