Limited edition prints, Blinkink

Blinkink has put together this set of splendid limited edition prints, featuring artwork by four of the directors repped by the company

Shown clockwise from top left, are posters by Ben Hibon, Pleix, Kalle Haglund and Kristofer Strom.

“Everything we do is online, so I wanted to do something completely offline to see what we came up with,” explains Bart Yates, head of Blinkink.  Yates was inspired to do the prints after visiting the Flatstock Poster Exhibition at this year’s South by Southwest music festival in Texas, where he also found a printer for his own print series. “The printer that had done the posters for the highest number of cool bands that I like dictated my choice,” he explained.

The prints are each in a limited edition of 100 and will be distributed to friends and colleagues of the production company. After the success of this first series, Blinkink plans to do further prints with its other directors in the future.

Obama’s Simulacra

A poster for Barack Obama’s speech in Berlin yesterday. But was
there substance beneath this well-honed visual styling?
Standing amidst a crowd of 200,000 Berliners yesterday, writes CR contributor Daniel West, Barack Obama was Jean Baudrillard’s messiah. As his sermon boomed over the Tiergarten, our presence was explained: this was a pilgrimage to postmodernism, not politics. We came to snatch a tiptoe glimpse of the man who has dominated our inboxes, TVs and newspapers. A man whose logos and slogans and soundbites have so comprehensively flooded our collective consciousness. We came to witness reality. But Obama’s performance was not a speech, it was a simulacrum…
