  The Making of John Mayer’s ‘Born & Raised’ Album We’ve featured David Smith’s work on John Mayer’s Born & Raised Album before and we were amazed by the detail and level of his work. His works spans both the traditional and modern methods of creating graphic design. Recently, Freelance film-maker Danny Cooke posted a video featuring the process and how John Mayer found David Smith’s work and instantly fell in love with it. Check out the finer details of David Smith’s work on the Born & Raised album in Danny Cooke’s documentary – The Making of John Mayer’s ‘Born & Raised’ Album:

    A Pictorial History of London Tube

London’s underground tube has been an influential icon in graphic design. The logo of London’s tube has been parodied, used, and sold worldwide – from shirts to posters, and other accessories. But in their 150th anniversary, Transport for London made an exhibition of their archived posters.




  Over 150 posters where exhibited by the London Transport Museum. Check out some of the vintage and modern designs at Brain Pickings.     Save Saving Sally Saving sally is an independent feature film produced by creative-extraordinaire Avid Liongoren. Why are we trying to save Saving Sally? Well, it’s been in production for almost seven hundred years, and the people behind the idea and the film are getting broke and they need some extra muscle. So here comes the internet to the rescue (well, hopefully). If you’ve got time check out the trailers on their website, here’s one for you guys:
