Sorry for the short hiatus, guys, but not only did Carrie wipe us out a little – we’re also working on our new studio website and it’s a huge enterprise. We’ll share the progress as we go on, especially the new project photos.
In the meantime we wanted to show you a resurrection of sorts of one of our minimalist Disney posters: the cover for a Belgian lifestyle magazine Knack Weekend. We were asked for the Pinocchio design for the cover because it fit the theme of the issue, about the lies people tell, and we were happy to cooperate. Pinocchio gained a new background and some international exposure.
The original Pinocchio poster.
The whole series (buyable here)
And a little different find: we discovered that our Freud cover from the Words Matter series made it to the academia: it is carefully analyzed in a thesis on randomness in typography by Anders Larsson, which you can find here (we’re on pages 28-31 but read the whole thesis).
We are happy to announce that our posters are now becoming available as prints here. The shipping options are much more affordable than we were able to offer from our neck of the woods so we hope those of you who asked for prints will be pleased with this solution.
Right now we have put up a selection of Disney classic posters but early next week selections of Iconic TV Shows and Iconic Painters will also be up. If your favorite poster is not among the initially selected or you wish for a different size, please let us know and we’ll be happy to add it to the store.
Hopefully these will be in time for Christmas presents.
A while ago we did a series of minimalist Disney posters which looked something like this:
and you can see the big versions here.
Last week we saw the newest pleaser from Disney, Brave, that we’d been waiting since first teaser trailer to see. Or more specifically, since we fell in love with Tangled and wanted to see something else equally exciting. Brave did not disappoint us (though it was surprising to see a Disney princess without a romance) and today we celebrate it with the twenty first minimalist poster.
Now we’re waiting impatiently for more Disney fun.
First, thanks for all the interest in our recent TV shows posters and all the nice reactions. In the future we plan to expand this project but today it’s a different set of posters.
Even though we’re not exactly a target group, we loved Tangled and it reminded us of all those older Disney animations we were brought up on. So today we present our tribute: simple posters for 20 classic Disney movies. Again, it was so much fun.
And, should you be interested, the posters are available here.
