Trippy Tears

  An example of graphic design that I found in the wild is this beautiful painting of Frida Kahlo. I found this painting at a local market in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. It was so mesmerizing that I just had to buy it and take it home! This painting has the qualities of a ‘posterized’…

All Men Beware

This particular design is one that I found on a hoodie I just bought. I happen to love this design for many reasons. The typography used in this design was especially alluring. The use of only majuscule letters connects with the actual message, “All Men Beware”, and image by making the entire design bolder. I…

Bradio

This is the logo for the band BRADIO, which is an acronym for “Break the Rule And Do Image On.” I choose this because of its iconic look and style. If it looks familiar even if you haven’t heard of the band, that’s because it bears some resemblance to the MGM logo, another iconic symbol.…

Hayley Williams – Petals for Armor

I chose this design because of an upcoming album release by one of my favorite musicians, Hayley Williams. Some of you might recognize her from the band Paramore. She is releasing her first solo project called Petals for Armor in early May of this year. I think she took a very unique aesthetic approach to…

FedEx

For my wild design post, I chose to do the Fedex logo that I have recently seen on a box inside my storage room. For the first 20 years of the history of FedEx, from 1973-1994, the company had two designs for their logo. both of these designs weren’t exactly what the company was looking…

The Man in the High Castle

This Wild Design post will discuss the opening title sequence for the television showThe Man in the High Castle. The sequence uses imagery, sound and music to help the viewer understand the fictional world the television show represents and provide a key element to its plot line. You can find the sequence here: https://vimeo.com/173250809 The…

The Great Depression

I chose this image as an example of wild design because of the humor it brings me. I found this image while scrolling through one of my many meme pages that I follow on social media. This specific design in particular is notable to me because of its sarcastic tone it represents.  This design is…

Whitney Concert Poster

This poster is from an Indie Rock band called Whitney. It really called my attention because of the choice of design used in the poster. A design that comes into mind is that of the Henry Van de Velde. Although in this case a greater variety of colors are used. The design for Tropon definitely…

Anatomy Textbook

My last wild design post is going to be on my Anatomy and Physiology For Speech, Language, and Hearing textbook. This class is an anatomy class but instead of learning about how the whole body is set up and how it functions, we only learn about how speech is produced and how people are able…

Adidas Phone? Calculator?

Is it a flip phone? Is it a calculator? Is that the Adidas logo? When I first saw this on the sidewalk, I didn’t really know what to make of it. Sometimes, with street art, it almost seems as if certain aspects were added later, but I am not sure with this one. Maybe the…

Dad Jeans ❤️

Dad Jeans- who even knows what Dad Jeans actually are? Are they jeans 80’s style? Do you think of Danny Tanner immediately like I did? I saw this art on a sidewalk lamp post in my neighborhood in New York City. Like the other art that I saw around the city and in my neighborhood,…

Wild Glass Work

I chose this wild design because I loved the way this glass was designed. I have never seen any kind of glass that you drink out of with this intricate of a design. I am honestly extremely curious how this is even achieved. From the top and the bottom of the glass, the design is…

“The Religions Book”

This semester, I am taking a class called Religious Traditions of the World, and this is the cover of my textbook. The class covers a number of distinct religious traditions, and the book goes into depth about each of them. The design of the cover gives the reader a clear idea of what is inside.…

“Ordinary” Wild Design

This design “in the wild” focuses on a Hyaluronic Acid topical formula that can be applied to the face. I chose this design because of how strikingly simple it is – the entirety of the product’s packaging follows a black and white color scheme, and the chosen fonts couple with that simplicity nicely. I find…

Florence Street Sign

This “design in the wild” photo was taken last spring during my semester abroad in Florence, Italy. This simple “no entry ” sign was affixed with an interesting graphic sticker of a spilled wine glass, and for obvious reasons, it caught my eye. I love this “wild design” for many reasons; the first being the…
