Five things to do today: 1 June
Silent Giants - Study Ball - David Barringer - Cursebird - Totem 49
Check out three new poster designs from Michigan design collective The Silent Giants. Examples of their retro graphics include a Fleet Foxes poster for the Sasquatch Festival in Seattle (pictured).
Get strict with your study habits. Study Ball is a 9.5kg ‘prison-style’ ball and chain that will only unshackle itself after a set period of revision time.
Read Ellen Lupton’s conversation with the author of There’s Nothing Funny About Design - a collection of observations on the curious mind of the designer.
Mind your language as well as other people’s. Cursebird gives a real-time feed of people swearing on Twitter and a break-down of the naughty word users are twittering most.
Make space in your diary for Totem 49 at London’s Kemistry Gallery. French graphic designer Damien Poulain will exhibit 49 hand-painted figures made from reclaimed wood.
