We love the posters that Giovanni Pintori did for Olivetti.
The advert below was made in 1953, but still looks relatively current.

The Danish Postal Service have recently announced that they’re releasing a brand new pair of stamps. One of which will be designed by a fashion brand called Soulland. There is an interesting article here about the process of designing postage stamps, along with more great images. They’re not showing the actual stamp until it’s released later this year.

Nicole Dextras is a Canadian graphic designer. She also makes huge typographic ice installations. Her largest letters to date stand at a whopping 8 feet tall. Nicole says she aims to –
“Subvert the authority of the english language and the commerce of signage – selecting words which represent a sense of vulnerability and transition. Words cast in ice interrupt our literal narratives, allowing a more integrated reading of the land we inhabit, as opposed to the past and current commodification of land as limitless resource. this fundamental split in perception lies at the crux of our environmental crisis.”

The Klein Bottle is a mathematical term for a shape without a defined top, bottom, left, or right. This is an attractive build which sits firmly on the postmodernist side of the fence. I imagine that some rooms are oddly shaped, with some wasted space. The building is highly idealistic and personal, so as long as the people who commissioned the building enjoy it, then it is a successful design. The residence won Best House at the World Architecture Festival Awards last year.
