This was a fun project that came across my desk recently. Design some 1960’s inspired business cards for fake Disney companies. The 60’s is also one of my favorite periods of graphic design as well. I drew a lot of inspiration by looking at Scandanavian design from the 60’s, there was some really great stuff there. Also, google some of the people and addresses I used on the cards for a little Disney history that might be appropriate for this project. A few of these cards will be used in an upcoming magazine article which will include other “fake” cards from other designers here at Yellow Shoes as well.
I love looking at this original layout drawing of the proposed Disneyland from 1953. Fun to see a proposed Lilliputian Land and Mickey Mouse Club Island. This was included in the original Disneyland Prospectus (proposal) if your interested in reading through it, you can download this PDF Disneylandoriginalprospectus Enjoy!
This was one of those crazy ideas that we joked about doing that ended up a real thing. The creative superpowers on this were the infamous team of John McCall and Matt Stewart. Nth Degree FX helped bring it to life along with a host of other talented folks. Also great job by Paul Chase on the Behind-the-scenes video! Enjoy.
The team has been having a lot of fun producing these great images over the past few years. Here is one of our latest released on Star Wars Day (May 4) May the Force be with you!
Not only did the amazingly talented Allan Peters of Target come inspire us here at Yellow Shoes last week, he also designed this great poster for his event. They are 2 color on GMUND Bier Paper and we screen printed these by hand over at Hobo Press (my buddy Adam’s garage). Some (bad phone) pics from the printing session below. Enjoy!
