Silent Giants - Study Ball - David Barringer - Cursebird - Totem 49

Silent Giants
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).

Study Ball
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.

David Barringer
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.

Totem 49
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.
