Jason Stanley digitally cleans up and enhances vintage patents from over the past 200 years, and turns them into stunning prints which we would love to hang on our walls. The patents, which he chooses to work on, run the gamut from those for common household items to action figures based on iconic movie characters.

The artist says that “his goal is to bring these inventions (that we have all grown to love and benefited from) back into everyday life in the form of art.” 

Jason Stanley is based in Bowling Green, Kentucky. You can buy over 300 prints in many color and size options at his Esty shop.

Here is some brilliant hand-drawn typography inspiration for you folks!

London-based designer Craig Black sent in images of the lettering work that he and his team made for Slick’s Barbershop in Glasgow, United Kingdom. The mural follows the award-nominated window art (seen below), which Black created for the glass front of the establishment.

Ben James, a 3D generalist based in Louisville, KY, creates his elaborate laser cut wood designs using an unique layering method. Using Autocad to design the patterns, he creates a base design and uses an expanding/banding technique to create the layers. He then cuts each segment out of birch wood with a laser cutter, and then glues them together to create a single cohesive artwork.

James says that he has a background in graphic design (a 4 year computer science degree from Purdue University), but over the years he gained experience is using many different applications. You can buy his creations and also place custom orders over at his Etsy store.

While traveling through Amsterdam, the editor of Arthurious, a New York-based design journal and studio, was fascinated by how obsessed the city’s residents were with their door numbers. Mostly made by hand, these calligraphed numbers are often carved in stone or wood, or created using a variety of materials like metal, ceramics and glass.

Some of them looked high-brow, some sickly, some pensive; one of the digits begged for a bike with a cart of tulips in the front. By and large, they felt they’re a second dimension to the city: quiet but as eloquent as people.

Soon, the folks at the studio were sharing photographs of the numerals on their Instagram account. After picking the best from hundreds of images, they digitized their selections into a typeset and used it to create a lovely 24” x 36” minimalist calendar poster made up of hundreds of different characters. The poster comes printed on high quality 192 gsm paper, and you can get it for $42 at their site.

‘Brutal London’ is a collection of paper cutout models which recreates the (thankfully short-lived) brutalist architecture trend that made up London’s urbanscape during the 1960s to the 1970s. Created by Zupagrafika, a Polish graphic design & creative firm, the collection consists of five highly-detailed paper templates with true to life illustrations of the original buildings’ facades.

The `raw concrete` London tour begins with iconic tower blocks (Balfron Tower and Space House), leads through the infamous estates doomed to premature demolition (Robin Hood Gardens and Aylesbury Estate) and concludes with a classic prefab panel block (Ledbury Estate).

You can buy the entire set at Zupagrafika’s online store. Visit the firm’s site and Behance to see more of their works.

MY-SUPERHERO-VW-T1-Punisher-Chungkong

Chungkong, a Netherlands-based designer, has been creating some terrific pop-culture-themed artworks for quite some time now. His awesome new art project is a mash-up of the iconic Volkswagen T1 camper van with popular comic book superheroes. Chungkong has brilliantly incorporated several signature design elements from the costumes of the superheroes on the exteriors of the vans. Even the license plates of the vans have been cleverly given personalized numbers, which just so happen to be the year in which the particular superhero character was created by its maker(s).

The artist, on his project:

Superman is fortunate. He can fly without the need of any kind of vehicle. Other superheroes aren’t quite as lucky, having spent their childhoods as mere mortals before getting a spider bite or having their parents murdered. Most of them required something a little extra to transport them around the world.

And let’s be honest, there are some awesome rides around in the superhero universe. But what if their rides weren’t as cool like the Christian Bale Batmobile or the kickass Mark 3 Iron Man Suit, what if their rides were ragged T1 Volkswagen Vans…

You can check out more fun illustrations on the artist’s website. Select prints of his works are available at his online store.
