Chocolate Around the World

Chocolate Around the World at the Chicago Field Museum poster

DDB Chicago has produced a nice campaign of illustrated posters to advertise an exhibition on Chocolate Around the World at the Chicago Field Museum. We have read that the Chicago Field Museum is somewhat similar to the Natural History Museum in London and the exhibition looks at the history and use of chocolate around the world.
DDB Chicago called in London-based illustrator Matthew Green to illustrate the posters and we love what they’ve created!
We thought that the two posters we decided to showcase here were a good combination of sinister (on the left hand side) and really cute (right side)! And they’re bound to attract a diverse range of people to the exhibition.

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…

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!

Design of the week this week goes to Saatchi & Saatchi, Cape Town who have illustrated ‘The Art Behind the Music’ for Wordsworth Books.The poster campaign features three musical greats – Keith Richard, Amy Winehouse and Michael Jackson.
We love how the style/theme of each illustration matches the genre of music. The objective of the campaign was to leave the customer with a strong desire to buy the biography and we think Saatchi & Saatchi have done this perfectly!
