Those Olympic posters: some alternatives

alternative 2012 Olympic posters

Two weeks ago we wrote a blog post about the new Olympic posters designed by British artists – you can read the original post here. We’ve just seen these posters designed by third year students from Kingston University’s graphic design and photography courses and we thought it might be nice to compare the two!

A couple of weeks ago, following the release of the 2012 Olympics artists posters, course director Rebecca Wright asked the students if they would like to respond to the same briefy given the artists. They were asked for a personal response to the idea of the London Olympics and the intersection between art and sport. These are our two favourite pieces. Click through the link to see more!

Modern Art Oxford

Modern Art Oxford is beginning its 50th birthday celebrations early (it is 50 in 2015), with a website containing a collection of 50 posters from its exhibition archive, chosen by artists Simon & Tom Bloor. The posters are displayed online at Accompanying each poster on the site is information about the exhibition it was for, and why the Bloors have picked it for their collection.

These two were our favourites, why not have a look through the website and see which you like best!

Cut It Out!

Noma Bar Cut It Out

Illustrator Noma Bar has been going die-cut crazy! He has created an enormous dog shaped, electric-powered die-cutting machine and has been feeding it all kinds of material to die cut, from hand made paper through to old album covers, rubber flooring, carpet, ply wood and anything else he can think of. The results give his work a new dimension and a whole lot of colour.
We’re not sure which we like best! The amazing machine Noma has created – you can see it here. Or his clever artwork! Take a look at the pictures, things are not what they first appear to be…

Carl Kleiner geometric print

We’re constantly impressed by the work that Swedish photographer/image maker, Carl Kleiner produces.
We decided to pick this bold geometric artwork for ‘we love print’ as we really like the composition. At first they look quite simple but upon closer inspection you notice more and more little details. If you click through the link below you can see more of Carl’s work and you’ll notice he’s a very talented photographer too!

Life – The Exhibition

print from exhibition at East Gallery on Brick Lane

We love these amazing prints that have been on show at East Gallery on Brick Lane.
The show was a selection of work from 19 Australian Artists. Screenprints were available in editions of 20 for a very reasonable £50 each and 50% of all profits went to (RED).

We hope that Heaps Good raised lots of money and we look forward to seeing their next exhibition!
