Studio Constantine (The Manual Electric) isn’t the name of some awesome band/album, it’s the name of an extremely talented studio responsible for some inspiring print work.

Wow. Eye Sea Posters is pretty awesome. It’s a website that archives genuine original film posters from obscure movies released all over Europe throughout the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s. There are some fantastic posters up for sale at very reasonable prices if you are a collector and there is more than enough to take in for inspirations sake if you are a curious designer.

Devkick has put together a great little synopsis of inspirational examples of European graphic design dating through the 1950’s to the 1970’s. I have seen most of it but there were a couple of examples that were new to me. All and all there is some really great examples in the collection including references from De Stijl to International Typographic Style and it makes for a great inspirational resource.

The world’s first Graphic Design Museum has opened this week in the Netherlands. It’s one more reason I wished I lived in Europe. When I was in college my friends and I used to talk about how we hoped one day graphic design would be recognized as the art that it really is and find it’s rightful place in art history and culture. It’s good to see someone out there is starting to do so and saw fit to finally build a museum about it. It will be interesting to see just how many visitors they pull in.
