Welcome to this week’s Friday Favourites, a selection of inspiring creative stories we’ve come across during the week. We’ll start with something shared by Lisa – “Brutalist Supergraphics”, a project in the British seaside town of Worthing, where street artist Ricky Also has been commissioned to transform a brutalist carpark facade into something far more colourful. Look closely and you might spot that the mural spells out “RIGHT NOW”, representing the creative regeneration happening in the town. It’s also an anagram of “Worthing”. Clever.
Read more about the project here.
And while we’re on the subject of re-positioning British towns, what do you think about this set of posters promoting the “hidden gems” of Swindon?
These were designed by Jazzbones and we found them on Creative Review.
Going on your summer holidays soon? We love this collection of vintage luggage labels from holidays of the past:
You can find out more about the story behind luggage labels and see more examples here (found by Jade).
Also on the subject of travel, we were charmed by this set of stamps from around the world, designed by Singapore-based illustrator Elen Winata:
To end the week, another find from Jade – a heartwarming tale of teenage love, captured in this lovely short animation by filmmakers Beth David and Esteban Bravo. Enjoy…
