The Noun Project is building a free online collection of downloadable symbols. Their mission is to collect, organize and add to the highly recognizable symbols that form the world's visual language. You can currently browse the symbols and download any of them for free to be used however you want. The Noun Project is also a Kickstarter project, looking to raise money to improve their website by adding new features such as Search or Collections. Every pledge of $30 or more gets a customized t-shirt featuring up to 3 noun symbols of your choice.
Designer Albert Exergian, created this absolutely stunning series of TV posters as a personal project. He uses a minimal, modernist style to illustrate iconic TV shows, old and new. Exergian does an impressive job of capturing the essence of each show in a couple of simple shapes. The posters are humorous, smart, visual perfection. Search for your favorite show, I don't think you will be disappointed. The series is available through Blanka as A1 prints.
It is one of my favorite times of the year... time for Nicholas Feltron's Annual Report.
Most designers will be well aware of Feltron's tradition, as his reports are an annual source of graphic and information design inspiration. If you have not heard of them, the Annual Reports are a summary of graphic designer, Nicholas Feltron's year. They cover the places he has been, the foods he has eaten, the fluctuations in his mood, etc, etc. They are not only ridiculously pleasant to look at, but amusing to read. If you are interested in collecting your own annual data, check out one of Feltron's other projects, Daytum.
