Famous Photos Recreated with ‘Star Wars’ Figures - Flavorwire

Famous Photos Recreated with ‘Star Wars’ Figures - Flavorwire | A Cultural History of Advertising | Scoop.it
Flavorwire: Cultural news and critique from Flavorpill...

"Canada-based photographer David Eger’s work on Design Taxi and were instantly charmed by his recreations of iconic photographs, album covers, and movie moments using figures from the Star Wars canon. Most of the images come from his Cloned Photos collection and 365 Days of Clones project — a daily photo series starring several Phase I Clone Troopers from the Grand Army of the Republic. Darth Vader, Princess Leia and other mythical characters from Lucas’ much-loved franchise also make appearances, stepping in for The Beatles’ Abbey Road cover image, Grant Wood’s American Gothic, and more. If you’ve ever wondered what Star Wars figures looked like on the moon or in the boxing ring — floating like a butterfly and stinging like a bee — check out Eger’s work past the break." Allison Nastasi

For New ‘Mad Men’ Season, Magazine ‘Retro-fies’ Ads - DesignTAXI.com...

"For this week’s Mad Men cover story issue, the (online and print) edition contains vintage, swinging ‘60s-style cover design, layouts and ads.

Ads of brands, such as Mercedes-Benz, British Airways, United Colors of Benetton, Dunkin Donuts and Estée Lauder, were either re-appropriated to suit the issue or replaced by authentic period ads from the era.

Viewers can also vote for their favourite ads on the publication’s website.

The old school ‘Mad Men’ edition of the magazine, will be available on newsstands and iPads on Monday.

“We've literally taken a page from Newsweek’s past—recreating the sleek, iconic look of the magazine during the swinging ‘60s, but with all original content. Imagining what a Newsweek website would have looked like, without dropping a tab of acid, was no easy feat. But with a leap of faith (and a single martini), we created an online edition that Don Draper would have toasted. We hope you do too.” Newsweek wrote on its website.
