Saul Bass: Jack Of All Trades

Posted by Andrew Lindstrom

In this the first – of hopefully many – artist showcases I’m going to delve into the works of one of my heroes: Saul Bass.

What I admire about Saul Bass is not only his amazing talent, but the variety of mediums in which he exercises his talent.  The man was a masterful graphic designer creating some of the most original and iconic film posters and company logos out there.  He went on to revolutionize the film title sequence and even directed serveral short films!  Is there nothing the guy couldn’t do?

In this showcase I’ll share some of my favorite film posters, logos, graphic design and credit sequences by the master; Saul Bass.

A New Design and A New Direction

Posted by Andrew Lindstrom

I have reason to believe that a significant chunk of the WellMedicated readership are jonesing inspiration junkies foaming at the mouth for their next fix.  Ditto.  It is for this reason that I’ve decided to shift the focus of this blog to be entirely inspiration only.  Let’s face it, it’s pretty-much been that way for a while now anyway.

With this decision also comes a pretty kickass redesign to get the party started.  Stay tuned for some awesome new features like interviews, artist showcases and more!

The Inspiration Drought Of 2008

Posted by Andrew Lindstrom

You may have noticed a bit of a famine in the ol’ updates department here at the blog. I know I have, and it’s killing me.

Truth is, this year was my first holiday season as a full time freelancer and it seems I have a thing or two to learn in the area of time management. As a result, this blog has taken the hit and been left to fend for itself. I assure you this is only a temporary set back and we’ll be back in full swing in 2009!

In the mean time I thought I’d share with you a few articles that I’ve put together my favorite design blog; Smashing Magazine.  Enjoy!  And happy (belated) holidays everybody!

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that a web designer’s portfolio – arguably their most valuable marketing tool – is usually neglected and horribly out of date.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