brazil http://design.org/tags/brazil en Tales You Lose: Coin Recreations by Andre Levy http://design.org/blog/tales-you-lose-coin-recreations-andre-levy <p>Tales you Lose is an ongoing project by <a href="http://talesyoulose.tumblr.com/" target="Andre Levy">Andre Levy</a>, a Brazilian designer based in Frankfurt, Germany. Levy takes a variety of coins and hand-paints new and familiar faces on each one, giving a carbon-copied object its own life. Often, it only takes a few strategic lines and blocks of color over the coin base to form an alternate, recognizable character. </p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div

http://design.org/blog/dancing-plague-poster-designs-your-favorite-dance-moves <p>Once upon a time, some friends and I were determined to learn the Napoleon Dynamite dance. We didn't actually succeed past the first handful of moves, but one of these designs by <a href="http://dancingplagueof1518.tumblr.com/" target="The Dancing Plague of 1518">The Dancing Plague of 1518</a> might have been quite helpful. These clever posters—designed by Brazilian designer and illustrator Niege Borges—iconify a movie / TV character and his or her iconic moves into a visual how-to poster. </p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="877" title="Design, dancingplague, poster" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/16/dancingplague_01.jpg?1331907449" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-images"> <div class="field-label">Images:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="877" title="Design, dancingplague, poster" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/16/dancingplague_02.jpg?1331907669" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="877" title="Design, dancingplague, poster" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/16/dancingplague_03.jpg?1331907669" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="877" title="Design, dancingplague, poster" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/16/dancingplague_04.jpg?1331907670" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="877" title="Design, dancingplague, poster" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/16/dancingplague_06.jpg?1331907670" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="877" title="Design, dancingplague, poster" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/16/dancingplague_07.jpg?1331907670" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="877" title="Design, dancingplague, poster" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/16/dancingplague_08.jpg?1331907670" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="877" title="Design, dancingplague, poster" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/16/dancingplague_09.jpg?1331907670" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="877" title="Design, dancingplague, poster" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/16/dancingplague_10.jpg?1331907671" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="877" title="Design, dancingplague, poster" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/16/dancingplague_11.jpg?1331907671" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-featured"> <div class="field-label">Featured:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not Featured </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/dancing-plague-poster-designs-your-favorite-dance-moves" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/dancing-plague-poster-designs-your-favorite-dance-moves#comments brazil design diy icon infographic instructions poster Thu, 15 Mar 2012 18:32:01 +0000 jessicapatterson 4158 at http://design.org Minimalist Movie Posters and Icons by Pedro Vidotto http://design.org/blog/minimalist-movie-posters-and-icons-pedro-vidotto <p>I may or may not have been inspired to look for movie poster designs by a certain movie that will be showing tonight at midnight.
