sick mushroom

I found these posters on a website call pokedstudio.com; the designer said it was inspired by the video game super Mario. I think these posters are awesome because I have never thought of Mario could look like him. It is also very creative that she gave all kinds of characteristic to those mushrooms. It is funny that Mario is wearing a Nike shoe. The mushroom design reminds me those cue mushrooms designs by Takashi Murakami.

Fun Signs

These are some of the image I found recently online. These kinds of designs are always playful. I feel amazed about how design can be filling into all aspects. Every day, different kinds of signs are surrounding us, but we don’t really pay attention to its design. Why stop sign is red and hexagonal? Why speed limit signs are black and white and rectangular? Why freeway sign is blue and red and shield like? What kinds of font they used? There are so much to find out, but does any of us thing about that? I think its interesting to know the answer.
