Here is something I’ve wanted to do for years, but had never followed through on until now. I got my order of Signalnoise stickers delivered yesterday and cannot be happier with the results. I had them printed by Sticker Robot and they really knocked the quality out of the park, and at a reasonable price.
I will be including a free sticker with all Signalnoise Store orders from now on.
I’m happy to announce that Signalnoise has teamed up with the mighty Abduzeedo to host a Tron Legacy poster giveaway.
To enter is simple, swing by the post on Abduzeedo and leave Fabio a comment. You will have the chance to win one of two posters. Pretty easy :)
Big thanks to Fabio for putting this on!
Here is a project I have been wanting to kick off for quite a while, the pals on my Twitter got a sneak peek yesterday. This is the first t-shirt design for the Signalnoise Apparel line I will be launching in the coming few weeks. The ‘Awesome’ design was originally intended for a shirt before I created the poster of the same name. I will be trying for the full gamut, both men’s and women’s sizes.
The manifesto behind my t-shirt line is simple: to create shirts the way I remember them in the 70s and 80s.
Other then the recent posters I have launched, I’ve been tight-lipped about my other Signalnoise projects on the go as I worked things through and got the final designs together. Signalnoise Apparel will be opening in the near future, so stay tuned as I work out all of the details before the big launch.
I was asked by Computer Arts Projects to participate in their monthly Designer Challenge, where they supplied me and two other designers with an image of a lady and we were to design a CD cover for the make-believe electro artist Polly Diamond. We had a week to create the final image before submitting. Here is a side-by-side comparison of the image I received and the final version.
I wanted to do something old-school with a funny, over-the-top angle. If you are Canadian you might spot the inspiration behind this piece as being that of K-Tel, a record company stationed in Winnipeg, Manitoba during the 60s and 70s. They had crazy covers for their compilations and was something I wanted to mimic in my design. Here are a couple of examples:
The version appearing in the magazine doesn’t have the Leather Rebel sticker on it. The idea hit me a week after I sent the final version off, gotta love it when that happens :) This also uses the same bacground effect used on my recent Wordburglar poster.
My design appears in the latest installment of Computer Arts Projects, the Print Design issue, which is currently on newsstands in Europe.
Last week I released my Tron Legacy poster design as an iPhone wallpaper and as a result had quite a few requests for a full monitor version. So, here is the full Tron Legacy wallpaper in multiple sizes for your computer.

Feel free to download the suitable file to add a bit of neon sci-fi to your desktop. Enjoy!
A few examples of the wonderful work being done by LA-based artist Paul Lee, which I came across on Ffffound a few days ago.
Really enjoy seeing pieces of art and being unsure as to how they went about creating it. Paint? Photoshop? 3D? Vector? Paul seems to have all of these elements mingled together in his work, along with a sharp eye for typography. Fantastic stuff.
Check out more of Paul’s inspiring work on his website.
It’s been some time since I uploaded any iPhone wallpapers to the blog, and I’ve had a few requests to make this one available.
So, here is my Tron Legacy poster design cropped to fit the display of your iPhone, feel free to download it here and add some sci-fi Disney color to your favorite handheld. Enjoy!
Upon doing a bit of research on interesting infographics, I came across the wonderful resource that is Good Magazine. Ive only scratched the surface and plucked a few graphics that really caught my eye (click the images above for the larger views) but it’s well worth a visit to the site. Beautiful work.
