NME has decided to stop printing after 66 years – a period which gave rise to many different looks as it tried to both react to and set the music agenda of the day.

When news arrived that this week’s edition of New Musical Express (NME) would be its last, there was an outpouring of nostalgia tempered with the cold truth that it had become culturally irrelevant.

It had been banging the drum for indie music a long time, but was no longer chasing music that young people were listening towhich can now be found all over the internet.

NME outlived many of its peer magazines such as Melody Maker and Smash Hits, but lives on through a online version.

On the 7th of February, the announcement came out that all English footballs fans wanted, the release of the 2018 World cup kit!

The kit has still got the traditional blue piping around the badge which is still adorned with a star commemorating England’s famed world cup win of ’66.

Will this new kit bring some inspiration from past and previous glories for the men and woman who have the profound honor of representing the English nation? Or will we not make it past the semi-finals and be doomed to another early exit back home from Russia?

Let’s be the 12th man and get involved!

 

There's not long to go until the release of Ready Player One, now the official Ready Player One poster has been unveiled, and it's packed with knowing nods to poster designs from the '80s.

Paul Shipper designed the poster with a vintage-style that calls back to legendary poster series as Indiana Jones, Back to the Future and Star Wars.

It's a clever move, given that the film's story is a retro pop culture.

Check it out below.

With the winter Olympics now underway, the world is watching its athletes compete in the snow and ice. But it's hard to miss the Olympic logo designed for this 2018 edition of the international sporting competition. So, many viewers may be wondering: just what does the PyeongChang Olympic logo mean?

The logo "symbolizes a world open to everyone," according to the PyeongChang 2018 official website. It's a message achieved through layering the symbols with multiple meanings.

The emblem design combines elements of the Korean alphabet and Cheon-ji-in (Korea's traditional humanism). Olympics' official website describes the logo's formation stems "from the first consonants of each syllable in the word 'PyeongChang' when it is written in Hangul." The emblem's first character functions in another role too, representing "a gathering place where the three elements of Cheon-ji-in – heaven, earth, and human – are in harmony."

There's not long to wait now until cinema goers get to return to a galaxy far, far away with Solo: A Star Wars Story. To accompanying the film are the four vibrant teaser posters, which put bold typography at the centre of their design. Masking the visuals of the characters inside the lettering, and its inclusion here sets an extravagant tone for the film.

We're also really enjoying the blend of old and new design elements. A flaking paper background is a striking contrast to the painted images in the sci-fi fonts.
