This was part of an ad campaign to promote Montreal's 375th anniversary. I didn't know Montreal was that old. According to the blog's article, the ad campaign's goal is to invite the public to attend a major public art event. I chose this design for its creative use of collage and bright colors.

I think this is a very powerful and successful image. The designer effectively uses very simple imagery to convey a prevailing feeling and impression of the current U.S. President. I believe we can easily see the designer using humor, appropriation, visual metaphor and symbolic cultural meaning to communicate a very strong message without any type. Literally this image is worth a thousand words.

Here is a good example of branding and interior design. All the elements work harmoniously like a bowl of ice cream with sprinkles. The color palate is delicious and savory. You could walk in to this space and eat everything in site, even the walls.

This poster was designed by Jesse Johanning. I was attracted to this poster for its organic shapes and grid-like typographic layout. The poster invites the viewer to navigate a surrealistic landscape out of a Dali painting.
