Italian brothers known as Van Orton Design have redesigned classic movie posters in a bold new way. Utilizing a central vanishing point and using vibrant neon-style colors, their designs take movies out of their normal context and into a new dimension. Via DesignBoom:
Reading a tiny ingredient list on the back of a package is one thing. Seeing the ingredients side by side is a more impactful way to know what goes into your snacks. Photographer Dwight Eschliman and Steve Ettlinger have a new book called Ingredients that show just that, the nitty gritty bits of stuff that go into common processed foods. Via the WashingtonPost:
Steve Frykholm is Herman Miller’s VP of Creative Design, and a personal friend. He is famous for a myriad of designs for Herman Miller, but hugely for his Summer Picnic series, which permanently hang in the MOMA in New York.

When they’re not resupplying the International Space Station or planning much bigger adventures, SpaceX apparently has a fun and whimsical team that can draw. These inspiring retro-futuristic tourism posters show people vacationing on Olympus Mons (the highest peak in the solar system), see Mars’ moons, Phobos and Deimos, and more.
