We see them every day as we go about our lives, but how often have we stopped to think about how the countless painted signs on roads are made?
One early morning in London, designer Tom Williams spotted two sign-painters at work and decided to film their process—amazingly, they hand-lettered the words “Bus Stop” with nothing more than a metal pole to help align their work.
This video is a must-watch for anyone who appreciates typography and the craftsmanship that goes into their creation—the confidence with which the letters were painted reflect the painter’s years of experience in the trade.

Air France is set to unveil its stylish and vibrant new campaign on 2 April in the form of glamorous fashion ads.
Created by BETC Paris and shot by Argentinian photography duo Sofia and Mauro, the campaign features 12 ads that illustrate the airline’s services such as the Boeing A380 jumbo jet, its new La Première and Business cabins and in-flight meals, as well as the destinations served by the airline including New York, Tokyo, Brazil, and of course Paris.
Oozing with trademark French joie de vivre, the lush and striking ads tantalize with visuals of comely models, delectable desserts, relaxed opulence and stunning scenery, all championing the perks of flying with Air France. They are accompanied by a new slogan “Air France, France is in the air” that exemplifies France’s openness and international outlook.
The ads will run on print, online, radio and social media platforms in France, Germany, Brazil, Canada, China, Spain, the US, Italy, Japan, Russia, Senegal and Switzerland.
This is an awesome collection of futuristic digital illustrations from designer Kervin Brisseaux. Very good use of colors and shine lights making you feel like a part of the future.
New Jersey-based creative services company One Trick Pony has been celebrating the “Alcoholidays”—we assume these are holidays that are centered around alcohol consumption—for ten years.
For 2014, its creative team decided to mark the occasion in “true, ridiculous, and over-the-top style”—they created 12 new holidays for their clients that are detailed in a pin-up calendar, which features men of the agency as models.
Processed with a two-color overprint technique, its pages are transformed when one looks at them through the custom decoder glasses that accompanies it—this special calendar also comes with a mini bottle of vodka.
