Jason Munn for Rolling Roadshow

jason munn

Bay Area designer and long time Grain Edit friend, Jason Munn, was recently commissioned by Alamo Drafthouse to design a series of posters for their cinematic Texas Monthly Rolling Roadshow. The series focuses on films that take place in Texas.


Sam Chirnside

Sam Chirnside

Hailing from Melbourne, Australian designer Sam Chirnside creates some fresh graphical work. Sam’s visual themes tend to weigh on the cryptic side with his use of darker imagery and glyphic geometries to create stunning type. I really enjoy his use of grainy textures to add dramatic tone and give the work the perception of being rendered in pencil. Sam’s client list includes Volcom, 55dsl, and Handsome Clothing. On his website he also holds down a great inspirational blog with his own work sprinkled in.

Dutch-inspired Brazilians making amazing design? Yes!

São Paulo based Quadradão is doing just that. I was pretty excited to run across them, they have a very impressive body of work. Such big, fat, bold shapes and colors. In design school I remember trying to get Helvetica to look this good.


Doyald Young Poster

Doyald Young poster

At the end of last year, Josh Higgins started a collaborative poster with Doyald Young that was to be a gift to a mutual friend. Sadly, Doyald passed away before the project was completed. The day after his passing, Josh contacted Jessica Hische who graciously brought the project back to life. A limited number of these  letterpressed posters are now available and proceeds will be used to set up a type scholarship in Doyald’s name.
