Power Posters

Found on GOOD: Each morning since early September, Jonny Selman has picked a headline published on the BBC and has interpreted it as a poster. Selman's project BBCx365 now includes an incredible 106 headlines-as-posters, all of which he created in the wee hours of the morning, before he moved onto his work as a student at the Academy of Art University. "By creating posters based on the news stories, I hope to compel my audience to look into the article and eventually stir a larger interest in world news with the American public."

NASA Snowflake-Making Contest

In case it wasn't already clear how COOL it is to make paper snowflakes - NASA's holding a contest! Deadline is extended through Dec. 22... We think this is fantastic, but then again, we also think staying up until 3:17 am to watch a lunar eclipse is fantastic. :)

lots of giggles here - merry christmas!

Olly Moss's Star Wars Posters

Olly Moss just gained a lot more sci-fi fans. We featured him in a recent Design Spotlight and now he is making headlines on sites everywhere with his gorgeous Star Wars collectible print series. Yesterday, 400 sets of the 3 icon posters sold out in a matter of minutes at $50 dollars apiece, $150 for the set. Now they are going for upwards of $1000 on ebay. Moss announced on his blog today that he will sell the remaining 50 sets tomorrow - for a lucky few that can afford them at $500. We find them to be a perfect marriage of Eric's sci-fi nerdiness and GA's love of print design, and we wish we could snag a set. At least we can say we discovered him before the Star Wars fanatics!

We can't afford the $500 price tag, but Eric promptly purchased GA a different Olly Moss print for Christmas. It is called "Sea Saw." We find it quite clever!

Paper Snowflakes

We picked out our first tree together last nite. It sits sweetly (and patriotically) in our new apartment window. We loved decorating it in blue and red. Nothing beats the joy of making homemade holiday decor - like paper snowflakes!
