I saw those two japanese retro poster graphic art a while ago over at Pink Tentacle and fell in love. The first one is a Reijiin sheet music cover from 1930 and the second one is a poster by Shujiro Shimomura from 1928.

Some design are just so cute and clever that you wish you had come up with it yourself. Not that I would ever work for a meat company being a vegetarian and all, but still…not gonna deny that I just love this artwork.
Designed by Bangkok based agency Subconscious for the client True Coffee. They wanted a cool design that would attracts the teenage demographic, so they reinvented the meaning of the word hot dog. supercute result.
Graphic Design Junkie as I am, I can’t live without Pantone. It’s just as important as Apple and Adobe. So imagine my happyness when I discovered this little gem while browsing my favourite online stores.

I wanna share a tip about a great drawing program; it’s called SketchUp, and is an easy to learn 3D modelling program released by Google and has been on the market for a few years now. (It’s currently on version 8). With this program can now very easily draw cool furniture or any other 3D object, design your dream house and decorate it, or if you dream big; why not design a whole city. You can also use Google Earth and add your own touch to already existing cities.

Most 3D drawing programs cost a fortune and even though Sketchup obviously isn’t as advanced as, say, Maya (which cost an arm and a leg at around 5000 EUR), you can still do a lot with it. And best of all is that it is free to download and free to use.
