I just stumbled upon the work of Cristiana Couceiro again today and was once again super impressed by her work. She has found an interesting space between mid-century and international typographic style that seems to somehow work perfectly. She is sticking to her guns on maintaining that style as well much to the chagrin of the design community I am sure. It would be great to see her start up a store where some prints of her work could be made available too. I’d imagine they’d do well on the walls of a mid-century styled home or office.
I am not sure if I have ever posted the work of illustrator Matthew Lyons before but he is something special. His unique 50’s-esque brand of image-making has sparked quite a following and he recently posted a new series of images simply entitled ‘Locations’. There is some really nice things happening in the recent set between muted color palettes and strong geometric shapes that would look quite stunning on any mid-century modern wall.

I was recently browsing a local book store downtown here in Denver and picked up a publication (sorry I can’t recall what it was) that had Rex Ray’s retro-inspired art on the cover. I picked it up immediately and had to know who was responsible for the imagery. Needless to say, after visiting his website, you can call me a fan of his work.
