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 Pixelated Pop-Up Heart: Craft a Card for Your Geeky Love http://design.org/blog/pixelated-pop-heart-craft-card-your-geeky-love <p>Kate at <a href="http://www.minieco.co.uk/" target="mini-eco">mini-eco</a> shared a fun Valentine's Day card tutorial over at her blog.
