Tabloid is everything you want in a documentary, a wacky, eccentric protaganist, engaging visuals and a few twists and turns. Errol Morris (GATES OF HEAVEN, THE FOG OF WAR) brings us a story that’s “the kind of thing where he finds an article in the newspaper about something weird or quirky, then gets interestedin it and investigates.” And if you’ve ever wondered about a snippet you read in passing, you’ll thoroughly enjoy Tabloid- about Joyce McKenna, the world’s first Tabloid Femme Fatale, a beauty queen with a high IQ and a bone to pick with the Mormon Church.
Andrei D. Robu’s design portfolio is filled to the brim with amazing typography. What’s impressive about his work is how easily he works in a wide variety of styles shifting from hand drawn cursive fonts inspired by tattoo art to experimental digital typefaces with ease.
This animation by Julien Nantiec has to be one of the coolest insurance commercial’s i’ve ever seen. Great typography, playful characters and punched up colors take a boring subject matter and make it a pleasure to watch. I don’t even think the Geico Gecko can top this! Watch the full commercial after the jump.
There’s no question that GIFs have had a long history on the Internet. We’ve been accidentally stumbling upon them for as long as we can remember. Usually, when we think of GIFs we usually don’t take it too seriously. Besides… the majority of them out there almost always include blinged-out text paired with unsightly some imagery. However, with the extreme popularity of Tumblr, GIF art has become the new and popular medium. Calgary, Canada’s Rick Silva’s has put his personal creativity into this art form; making sure to incorporate a balance between real-life landscape imagery and digital web geometry.
I love me a good cut paper illustration and Jared Andrew Schorr’s portfolio is jam packed full of them. My favorites have to be his typography work which brings to life a wacky cast of characters to create beautiful text pieces.
