  • Great Scott! Nike has released a limited edition shoe based on the original movie prop used in Back to the Future Part II. One Thousand Five-Hundred Nike MAGs, made famous by Michael J.

  • The good folks at Doodlers Anonymous noticed a trend (perhaps amongst themselves) of people defacing, drawing and scrawling thoughts across the now iconic red frame of the Netflix envelope.

  • Yesterday, Warner Bros. released the teaser poster for the next film in the Batman series: The Dark Knight Rises. Clever words, clever use of negative space, and clever withholding of information. Often Nolan's posters feature an intriguing image, and you have to search for the title. Nolan's Batmans have always been shrouded in secrecy—from rumored villains and plot-lines to guerrilla-style campaigns, they keep us wondering and waiting to see what will be next, and the strategy works.

  • Stuart Ford, a multidisciplinary designer in the UK (whose website is quite fun to explore), created this album cover and artwork for an album of the Film Music of Hans Zimmer (Vol.2). The design was inspired by Inception and draws on the environments and themes of "vast, maze-like landscapes and complex impossible patterns mirroring the intricate networks of the mind." The album also references the style of angular, German industrial architecture.

  • Whenever I browse the aisles of my local record/dvd shop, I always stop by the Criterion Collection selection to pull out a few films and admire their case design. Today, I stumbled upon the design masters behind their identity and branding.
