Over and Over and Over

Posted in Black and White, Books, Buy, Patterns, Published by Gluekit on August 26, 2008

We were super honored to find out last week that we were included in Mike Perry’s most recent book on hand-drawn pattern-making, Over and Over (Princeton Architectural Press, 2008). When we saw the pre-publication announcements, we put the new book on our wish list, but lo and behold, we’re actually in it! We couldn’t be more thrilled. Like MP’s last book, Hand Job: A Catalog of Type, this one is chock full of inspiration, insight, and awesomeness from cover to cover.

In Black and Gold: Todd St. John

Posted in Black and White, Calendars, Museums, Type, Yale by Gluekit on August 12, 2008

Yes, summer may be winding down. But some design stands the test of time. Todd St. John’s handsome woodcut fold-out type for the Yale University Art Gallery Calendar Cover series certainly looks brilliantly cool and contemplative (and organic and fun!) no matter what the season. It’s a beautiful contribution to the series, which invites talented designers to render standard text for the Gallery’s seasonal calendar of events.

Recent Gluekit illustration for Out magazine, featuring cast members from the new 90210, which debuts in just a few weeks. And yes, that’s Michael from HBO’s The Wire behind SeƱor Center. We really love the colors and tropical feel of this piece, and hope you do too!

Mad Men

Posted in Color, Illustrations, Published by Gluekit on August 2, 2008

Mad Men is back on the air! Here’s an illustration Gluekit did for Entertainment Weekly’s The Must List a few weeks ago to highlight the release of the first season on DVD. Our favorite episode is the season finale; we love all the episodes that deal with actual ad campaigns, and the handling of the Kodak Carousel launch was super fascinating! Va-va-voom!
