Dublin born Duane has recently received his Bachelor of Honors Degree in Visual Arts Practice (Fine Art) and is currently studying Visual Communication at IADT Dublin. I’ve been meaning to feature Duane’s work for a long while now, especially his Album Anatomy poster series. Duane’s synopsis on the project:

This project is an exploration in the art of reduction. It breaks down album imagery into its purist form by discarding any unnecessary information. This is achieved using a strict grid that displays the relevant album details, which leaves a central void to convey a response to the album. This void is filled by my personal response to an album. It can be influenced by a key track, the cover art or the overall flavour of the album.

Definitely one to watch, you can see more of Duane’s work here and follow him on Twitter and Instagram.

Michiel Schuurman is a Dutch graphic designer working in Amsterdam, here’s a collection of his work that really caught my eye.

Schuurman’s personal work specializes in typography and poster design which often boasts a rather maximalistic approach. His practice of combining bright colors, warped glyphs, harsh perspectives, and acidic patterns creates some awfully intriguing eye-candy, which he often screen prints himself.

Nottinghill based Two Times Elliot have just opened a little online shop. Amongst some lovely new posters are these three type specimen books. Focusing on the faces Caslon Pro, Knockout and P22 Johnston Underground, they’re all designed and expertly printed in-house. James has also taken the time to hand bind the P22 Johnston Underground and Caslon books with matching orange/red cotton.

Printed in 1 and 2 colours, each book is limited to 10 editions — so you better be quick. Luckily for you if you pop the discount code ‘BTG’ in at checkout you’ll receive 10% off your order.

I love letterpress. But to be honest who doesn’t. This is a short film about letterpress and one of the few remaining movable-type printing workshops in the UK, situated at Plymouth University, featuring Paul Collier.
