Wild Design: 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…

Depero’s Project 1

One of Depero’s projects that first stood out to me was I balli plastici. This is a set design that was created in 1921. In 1917, Depero  began to conceive of a Futurist ballet in which machine-like puppets would replace human actors and dancers.  He felt that this would emphasize the Futurist ideals of technology…

SpongeBob Nautical Promotional Party (S.S Save Gary!!!!!)

    Noah Weaver 4/2/2020 (Spongebob Movie promotional interactive poster at local Movie Theater)   This promotional piece for the upcoming SpongeBob movie is a fun and interactive way to utilize design in an informative way. In this movie SpongeBob’s beloved family member, Gary the snail, has been “snail-napped” and it’s up to SpongeBob and…

A Free Mom, who’s here to cheer you on!

  (Free Mom Card received from Miss Nancy outside of Talley)   Noah Weaver   I love the simplicity of the design of this business card. The card tells me all I need to know about what Miss Nancy is and does, even if I didn’t already know. Through the use of color, font, and…

Wild Design: Multilingual Advertising

My next Wild Design Post is going to be on a Sol de Janeiro body cream. Unlike most fragrance body creams today, this particular one is in a tub like container which is smart advertising considering it stands out compared to all of the other body creams in the plastic tubes. When shopping, customers tend…

Wild Design: Decision Point

During this time of quarantine, I have been incredibly bored. So, I decided to clear out my bookshelf, and I found this book from my sophomore year in high school. I went to a Catholic high school, and in order to receive the sacrament of Confirmation, we had to go through a “self-discovery” program with…

Billy Joel Record

My parents have this record wall in our dining room, and when I was thinking of how I could find “design in the wild” while self isolated, this record wall was the first place I looked. For this assignment, I chose Billy Joel’s album Streetlife Serenade because I have always liked it’s uniqueness, and because I felt…

Pure Genius

When I lived in New York City last summer, street art was everywhere. Honestly, in every major city street art is everywhere. On my street corner, one of the first things I noticed in my quiet Brooklyn neighborhood (yes, celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, Adam Driver, Maggie Gyllenhaal, lived in my neighborhood!!) was a spray…

F✌️CK 👁 ❤️ YOU!

This was one of the first pieces of street art I’ve ever seen. I first saw it summer of 2018 when I was in Montreal. As you can see, the art has a very nice, yet shocking meaning. At first glance, you’re like huh, that’s rude. But then, when you read it again you realize…

Physical Therapy At Home

The new ‘stay-at-home’ order has heavily influenced everyone’s daily lives; including school, sports, and even things like doctors visits. While I was wandering around the house I noticed my mom using a device on her neck, and to my curiosity, I had to ask what it was. This device, strangely shaped, was given to her…

Wild Design: Garth Brooks’ Album (The Chase)

In my house, we have this whole bookshelf of old CDs that just kind of sits there. I decided to go through the CDs and I found this album by Garth Brooks called The Chase. It stood out to me because I like the black and white concept that is going on. However, I do…

Adventure Time DVD Design

Being one of my favorite shows of all time, I thought it was fitting to do a post about the Adventure Time DVD set. The design of them is very fun and full of creativity. The set contains 8 DVDs each pertaining to a particular character. Each DVD has the case itself as well as…

Public Health Campaigns are Nothing New

In 1896, in a bout of reformist zeal, New York City passed anti-spitting laws. As one can see from the image, spitting could convey any number of communicable diseases and was an especial concern in the new subways and on the old sidewalks. The biggest enemy listed here is tuberculosis, or “consumption,” also known at…

An Under-examined category: Clock faces

A friend recently tipped me off to the fact that this clock was on sale (he had purchased the electric version), and I snapped it up. We both made the purchase thinking it was the work of the multi-talented Donald Deskey, due to a newspaper article stating specifically he had been designing clocks in 1933…

Wild Design: Be More Chill’s Broadway Branding

I love musicals, and I try to stay as up to date as possible with some of my favorites. However, I’ve had some issues keeping up with the musical Be More Chill’s design work. The image above shows the broadway hit’s branding over the years. The 2015 design was for the off-Broadway run, 2018 was…
