Earlier this year, Amsterdam-based graphic designer and illustrator Tim Boelaars posted on his site a series of mono-weight icons he’s drawn for everyday use. Now he’s produced a series of screenprints that each gather a set of the icons…

Each 18x24inch screenprint (Furniture, shown above) has been produced in a series of 75 on GF Smith paper complete with it’s own blind deboss that gives each poster a particular texture. €35 each from Boelaars’ online store at store.timboelaars.nl

Above and below: Buildings

Above: Tools. Below: Guns

OK, so the guns icon set probably shouldn’t be considered as being for “everyday use”. But they do make a nice set. Maybe they could be incorporated into in a hitman-themed game app, er, aimed at graphic designers?

Thanks for visiting the CR website, but if you are not also reading CR in print you’re missing out. Our March issue is an illustration special with features on Clifford Richards, Pick Me Up, the relationship between illustrators and writers, the making of the cover of the New York Times Magazine and a powerful essay by Lawrence Zeegen calling on illustrators to become more engaged with the wider world and accusing the profession of withdrawing “from the big debates of our society to focus on the chit-chat and tittle-tattle of inner-sanctum nothingness”.
