LG1

LG has just introduced the largest 21:9 ratio monitor, sporting a gigantic curved 38″ screen with a 3840 x 1600 display, specifically with a graphic artist’s needs in mind. Since the monitor is geared directly at creatives, LG decided to celebrate the release of the new monitor by hosting a creative competition with a grand prize dream workstation worth $10,0000!

To enter, simply create an original 21:9 ratio image, upload it to your social network using the hashtags: #LGUltraWideFestival, #DreamCanvas2016, #38UC99, and visit the competition website to officially submit your image and post. From there, 15 finalists will be announced and be awarded with their very own LG UltraWide 38” IPS USB-C monitor.

During the festival, other users will be able to see and download the submitted images, which in a combination with a panel of judges, will decide the winner of the $10,000 grand prize. The application round is from Sept. 21st, 2016 to Oct. 4th, 2016, with the images submitted being available to download from Nov. 9th to Nov. 22th!

This year’s contest judges include: illustrator Jon Burgerman, graphic designer Mike Kus, and artist Dirk Bakker. More images and info below!

Posters For Cult Films We’ll Never Get To See

fro-design-company26

Los Angeles-based graphic artist Fernando Reza imagines a series of posters for films that iconic directors like Hitchcock, Lynch, and Kubrick, were unable to bring to life. Kaleidoscope for instance, would have been Alfred Hitchcock’s prequel to Shadow of a Doubt. Hitchcock had filmed silent test footage for the film, which was going to be told from the murderer’s perspective, and feature enough sex and violence that the studio ultimately persuaded him not to make it. You can actually watch test footage here.
