40 Beautiful Web Design Portfolios

Posted by Andrew Lindstrom

It’s funny that a web designer’s portfolio – arguably their most valuable marketing tool – is usually neglected and horribly out of date.  I know mine is.

I’ve been really itching to overhaul my portfolio website for months now.  Though I don’t mind the current layout, it was always meant to be temporary.  As is usually the case, it’s just a matter of having the time to do it right.

To get the ball rolling I’ve collected 40 beautiful web design portfolios that for one reason or another blew me away.  Some are for larger companies while others are for individual freelancers like myself.  Hopefully this will inspire those of us neglecting our portfolios to get off our butts and start designing.

45 Vintage ‘Space Age’ Illustrations

Posted by Andrew Lindstrom

As a child, I truly believed that at this point in my life I would be living in a space-dome community with a flying car and a robot maid.  I can even remember the utter disappointment of realizing that most of the things I read in my dad’s back issues of Popular Science magazine would never see the light of day.

Until we all are living in outer space with flying automobiles and robot servants, we can pass the time with these 45 vintage illustrations of a space age tomorrow.  Hopefully these beautiful and creative works of art won’t bring back too many childhood disappointments.

Don’t worry, you’ll get your jetpack someday.

40 Rad Vintage T-Shirt Designs

Posted by Andrew Lindstrom

The whole vintage t-shirt craze of a couple years ago was one of those rare instances where I was on board of a trend well before it actually became fashionable.  Now that the trend is slowly “fading” out and mall kiosks are overstocked with tacky reissues of unsold Ramones concert tee’s – I’m still rockin’ my vintage shirts looking like Johnny-come-lately.

It is in celebration of this slowly dying fashion trend that I have put together a showcase of 40 Rad Vintage T-Shirt Designs for your amusement.  Enjoy.

100 Illustrated Horror Film Posters: Part 2

Posted by Andrew Lindstrom

A few days ago I posted 100 Illustrated Horror Film Posters: Part 1 to get myself, and hopefully others, in the Halloween spirit.  Much to my delight the post was a smashing success!  Big thanks to everyone who helped spread the word on that article.

As promised here is the second half of the horror and sci-fi illustrated posters collection.  Though a lot of these movies are not exactly masterful cinematic achievements, at least they sport some pretty kick ass poster art – so it’s not a complete loss.

Happy Halloween everybody!

100 Illustrated Horror Film Posters: Part 1

Posted by Andrew Lindstrom

For some, Halloween means costume parties and drunken debauchery.  That’s never really been my style.  Personally, I like to spend my Halloween evenings eating candy and watching scary movies.  Yeah,  I’m a nerd – I know.

This Halloween season has had me reminiscing of the brilliant horror and sci-fi movie posters of years past.  Particularly, I am a fan of the illustrated posters that used to be the staple of nearly every science fiction and horror film released.  These posters are able to communicate so much about a film with a single, masterfully created image that it’s a shame this style isn’t so popular nowadays.

Since there were so many amazing posters to showcase, I have split this post into two parts.  Part two will be posted on October 31st.  But for now, you may feast on the first half.
