Okay, time for another song lyric-inspired map. This one is more epic in scale but probably even more obscure than the last… (interestingly Google Maps recommends using a canoe to travel from Honolulu to San Francisco).
Luckily we used Google Maps to make this infographic based on the journey undertaken in a famous song. Can you guess which one? Sorry, no prizes but more silly song maps on the way…
Nigel is modelling our recent t-shirt homage to the now defunct Rossi Cafe in Hanbury Street. The image depicted was the Frank lunchtime staple for many a year… a No. 3 breakfast with tea and toast! You can get one (and choose the shirt colour) in our latest T-Shop »
Old friend and former colleague turned Sydney-based artist Olly Goodfellow has just launched a new online shop selling his very cool ‘Never Regret’ artworks. No digital prints here, each one is lovingly hand-crafted by the man himself. More info about Olly (including an amazing mullet picture) here.
Amazing set of ‘Round Britain’ cards aiming to teach road safety in a gentle 1950s style. On loan to Frank from Sam McKechnie of Magpie and the Wardrobe. Be careful with that ball Timmy!
More interesting graphical finds from Grandma’s house… First up, interesting but rather mismatched typography from the stock trading card game ‘PIT’.
After recently blogging about our lovely fund-raising table cloth all the way from Sydney, we thought it only right to mention this rather less wholesome – but much funnier – gift. A periodic table of swearing produced by those transgressive chaps over at Modern Toss.
Some time ago, Nigel set out to draw a bird every (week) day. There have been tears, controversy and much beak gazing, but he has finally reached his century. To celebrate, he’s assembled the feathery flock into an A2 poster, which will be going on sale shortly. A portion of the proceeds will also go toward the work of the RSPB. Well done Payne!
Way back in the depths of this seemingly never-ending recession, I was moved to create this poster advocating the petty theft of stationery items from corporate giant-type employers. The slogan is of course a rip from the excellent King Missile song of the same name (low quality YouTube vid here)… It’s kind of a white collar version of Johnny Cash’s gradual car theft ditty ‘One Piece at a Time’.
The font was created by bending and re-bending a single office paper clip. Obviously Frank normally just says “No” to stealing and the staplers and layout pads of small, independently-owned graphic design companies should definitely be considered off limits.
