Bronislaw Zelek's Poster Exhibit

Creative inspiration

In 1968, an artist named Bronislaw Zelek debuted a film poster for Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" at the Warsaw Biennale. The poster featured a dark flutter of text of various fonts streaming from a howling, winged skull.
      It's this subset of graphic design that is being celebrated this month at the International Poster Biennale in Warsaw, Poland.

Design Scout: Decorating with chevrons

Creative inspiration

Looking for a way to spruce up your spaces this summer? Try playing with pattern.
      Besides paint, injecting a peppy print into a room is one of the easiest ways to make what�s old look new (or new-ish) again. For a subtle chevron sighting, toss a throw on a sofa, place a bowl or lamp on a tabletop or replace a nondescript wastebasket with one that�s worth noting.
