There has been trend in 2009 for designers to take slices of popular culture and mash them up with old skool design. It looks like it’s an idea that isn’t running out of steam any time soon as Stéphane Massa-Bidal has shown with the latest incarnation – his series of internet phenoms as 1960’s style Pelican Classics.
Olly Moss was the first one out of the blocks with his revamped film posters and video games as books – all very Saul Bass.
M S Corley gave us books as, wait for it… books. Again heavily influenced by Bass.
