Bernie Hou of Alien Loves Predator spent five months watching movies and three weeks drawing to create this cinematic cartography of Manhattan, complete with 91 film references.
Hou is giving away a free copy of the 18×24″ poster to the first person who sends him the names of all 91 movies. [Here’s a high-res version of the map with each movie numbered from 1-91.] He plans to release the full list of the films after May 11th.
If that’s keeping you on the edge of your seat, you can purchase the poster for $16 here.

In response to the current trend of minimalist movie posters, Canadian designer Emma Butler has created a series of maximalist illustrations. Entitled Movie Parts, the poster series dissects her favorite films using “all the memorable parts, pieces & props” that are essential to the movie. Back to the Future, Juno, Top Gun and The Mighty Ducks are available here.
These stylish posters were designed by Los Angeles-based graphic designer Fernando Reza, AKA “Fro.” I’m not sure about you but I’m happy to support any artist who borrows his or her moniker from a popular hair style. In fact, if I ever decide to become an artist, I would call myself Chonmage.
Pick up the set of four posters for $80.00 here (limited to 100 prints each).
While most of us are busy poring over the released-yesterday brackets for College Basketball’s annual one shining moment competition, artist Grant Snider is holding an alternative challenge of sorts: that of best beard.
“Beard Madness,” which is available as a poster for $15, pits usual suspects Jesus, Dumbledore and Darwin against a couple of unproven newcomers, Dad in the Early ’80s and street fighter Kimbo Slice. Also of interest is the play-in game between Osama Bin Laden and a goat.
The transition from design student to design professional can be a slippery slope. To help, Doug Bartow of design studio id29 put together this chart of “29 Things Young Designers Need to Know (And Aren’t Always Taught in Design School)”, which originally ran in the January 2011 edition of HOW Magazine. (It’s also available in poster form for $25.00 over on Felt & Wire.)
Each square was paired with an explanatory paragraph or two, which is pasted after the jump, offering some great advice that’s beneficial for aspiring and professional designers alike.
Pick up the overall print or individual ones for $30.00 each.
