Friday Likes

I like it when commonalities emerge between Friday Likes. This time we have lots of black and white and lots of circles from Spain, Mexico, and Russia.

Madrid Street Art Project

The Madrid Street Art Project is an initiative to promote and enjoy Madrid’s street art through guided tours (labeled “Urban Safaris”), an online gallery, and more. Its identity, designed by local firm IS Creative Studio is so dead simple it hurts. Based on ubiquitous online maps, the black and white elements — street lines, arrows, superspaced sans serif — on their own are as visually exciting as a one-way black-and-white arrow sign but when brought together they explode into all kinds of cool.

We’ve seen distorted photocopy and scanner projects before (punk and postmodern movements) but it’s nice to see it done in 2012, kind of isolated of any trends — in fact, this goes so against the current trend of prettiness and simplicity it’s like a, well, glitch. [More (sort of)]
