friday blinks – 2/17/12

17 Feb

Here is a list of sites we’ve come across throughout the past couple weeks that we think are worth sharing. We call it friday blinks.

The Pauses “A Cautionary Tale” CD packaging
Album made to look like a beat up Golden Book and a cd that looks like a vinyl record, featuring design & artwork by Travis Lampe. Really cool looking piece. I had to look them up and listen to a few tracks. Pretty good stuff.

Inconceivible wine package design
The Princess Bride Custom Wine Packaging System for Alamo Drafthouse Cinema highlights this hilarious movie with awesome illustrations, type, and a wonderful 3-color design. The overlapping heads to form the chalice is fantastic.

Buddy League documentary
The trailer gave me chills. What a great story and idea. Type by Jeff Rogers.

New Theatre’s new look
Created by the Sydney office of Interbrand, this fresh look on an 80 year-old theater is incredible. From the mark down to the signage, buttons, stencil, clothing, bags, and tickets. Ughhhh, those tickets. So good.

Bearded Studio says Take a Break
Great advice from the Pittsburgh crew. I used to work at an agency where we’d play Quake 3 over breaks. I think it definitely helped with productivity.
