Inspirational Collection of Eco Posters

Environmental pollution is always a great topic to discuss. Keeping to world green is a source of inspiration for many artists and it is really great that art can serve for such an honorable purpose as saving our planet. Creating original eco-themed posters requires finding new ideas and of course their creative implementation. Our collection has interesting works that have combined nice typography elements with exclusive images and unusual worldviews.

We believe that all these posters must be a great source of inspiration for artists and of course these artworks are calling to action in their own interesting way – some via bright colors, others with the help of key phrases or ambiguous pictures. We really hope these works will make you think about our planet and of course will be a great source of inspiration.

Wonderful Childhood In Black and White Photography.

What can be more precious than the cheerful eyes of our children? Their sunny smiles can melt our hearts and make us more kind and responsive. Children teach us a lot and show us the true value of life and the world around us. Every day we learn something new and captivating with them and in such a way we gain more and more vital forces. Our children are the sense of our life, its ornament and treasure. They are always with us in our thoughts, even when they are far away. They come to us, then leave us at a certain age, but they are still our children in spite of everything.

Today’s post features wonderful black and white photos of children that will not leave you cold. Let’s admire them!

Back to Basics – Good Old Vintage TV Designs

Oh those charming good old days… Those days when TV sets were like space ships in your apartment, because these “gadgets” were nearly the most prominent invention of the 20th century. Of course these are really inspiring examples of industrial design – just take a look at these forms and materials. Wooden panels, domed details and original toggles – these were the symbols of that epoch. It is interesting how designers managed to create really sophisticated and original designs for absolutely new product. Without a doubt old TVs were essential parts of any house and without those domed screens and funny toggle switchers it is quite hard to imagine any apartment of those days. Of course some examples from our collection are quite unusual and even funny but still these items have become legends long time ago and we have no right to deride it.

The Amazing Photos of Playing Animals.

We love them! What can be more enchanting than our little friends that are always near us (even when they are not so little)? They are so lovely and pretty that it is impossible to pass by them without a smile. Their behavior makes us puzzled sometimes, but we try to understand them and find some ways of communication.  Their trust and devotion are worth admiration and the huge portion of love that we give them. Be sure that our life will be dull and faded of colors without their sometimes even crazy tricks. We can look for hours at them and enjoy playing with them and it will never become boring. They are full of exuberant energy and are always ready for something tricky.  We adore them and it is true!

The amusing photos of animals playing with the balls are presented in this post.  Enjoy this lovely collection full of good humour!

R2D2 – the Eternal Source of Design Inspiration

Epic Astromech droid “Artoo” is one of the most famous characters from the world-famous saga “Star Wars”. This robot has become a great source of inspiration for many talented designers and craftsmen. There’s no need to search for the reasons of such popularity because there is only one logic explanation for all this madness – R2D2 is a one god damn charismatic machine and people just can’t resist the temptation to become a part of it. We’ve gathered a small collection of the most original designs and mods based on the original R2D2. And it looks like this little guy’s appearance can be applied to any sphere of our life and here are the proofs.

Best Concept Car Designs from the Fabulous 50′s

Oh those were the days! Early stages of Space Age were a great source of inspiration for many artists. The Googie style in architecture and interior designs, and of course the “space culture” in automotive design – that’s only a couple of spheres affected by Space euphoria of that epoch.

The concept designs below reflect the best design trends of the early “Space Age” – using tailspins, small wings and other aerodynamic elements that were allegedly borrowed from the space engineering. We can’t call these cars extremely beautiful but they are surely essential parts of a design history that are worth being honored. Despite all weird forms and rather futuristic styles, the Fabulous 50′s gave many awesome legendary cars – from Cadillac Eldorado 62 to Ford Fairlane and Chevy Bel-Air.

This collection is our tribute to all those designers that were brave enough to create extraordinary and controversial things because this is the right way to make something really unique and elegant.
