Awesome Stuff: Great Graphics

from the looking-good dept

My mind has been taken up by a lot of design projects lately, so for this week’s awesome stuff we’re looking at some excellent graphic design from the world of crowdfunding.

Historic Robotic Spacecraft

Though the majority of what we write about here at Techdirt is earthbound technology, I know there are plenty of space enthusiasts in our audience. If you’re among them, you might like the idea of decorating your walls with elegantly designed posters of famous robotic spacecraft. The ultimate plan for this project is a series of three, but so far just one has been unveiled depicting the Voyager probe. If the others are as visually well-conceived and composed, it will be a very attractive set.

New York City Subway Signs

New York City’s subway signage is some of the most identifiable graphic design work out there. Like all good functional design, the vast majority of people who see it make no conscious notice of it, but they would also instantly recognize it anywhere in the world and immediately notice it if it changed. These handmade wooden replica NYC transit signs let you bring some of New York’s iconic visual language into your home. And for those who want to dig deep into the design philosophy of the world’s most famous signs, there’s another Kickstarter project selling a reissue of the 1970 NYCTA Graphics Standards Manual.

The Art Of Sandwiches

Well, this one’s just for fun. The premise is pretty random and silly, but these Art of Sandwiches posters are definitely attractive. The decision to make them available without text was a smart one, and they’d make a nice set — unfortunately, as is often the case with international Kickstarter projects, the price for people outside (in this case) Australia is a touch prohibitive.
