Paris Versus New York: A Tale of Two Cities

The most recent addition to my book wishlist is this collection of friendly visual matches between Paris and New York City. Illustrated by graphic designer Vahram Muratyan, the images enhance these conceptual cliché differences with their unique, striking presentation. I am currently in France, and definitely looking forward to discussing these comparisons with a friend in New York.

Individual prints can be purchased here, and the book can be purchased here.

Newcastle Festival of Dance

These are some creative posters designed for the July 2010 Newcastle Festival of Dance:

British designer Amy Rodchester describes the posters best, saying:

"The design of the posters visualize any pair of feet in any pair of shoes being able to dance and aims to encourage people to step out of their comfort zone and try something new. The 3D element of the posters engages and intrigues viewers. Each poster targets a different generation, inspiring children to dance, encouraging youths to be creative, motivating adults to continue exercise and reminding the elderly of their time in the old dance halls."
