Best of Kickstarter: 468 New York Subway Stations and 1 Epic Poster

SUBWAY_08SUBWAY_15SUBWAY_02

Designer Hamish Smyth and the Kickstarter expert, the one they call “The Crowdsourceress”, Alex Daly, are releasing an 11 colour limited edition poster, licensed by the MTA, printed in Italy, and only available through Kickstarter! The poster features all 468 subway stations in New York City drawn in alphabetical order.

You may recall Hamish was one of the designers behind that other wildly successful Kickstarter, the one for the Graphics Standards Manual; they’re using the same Italian printers for this poster.

Alex’s company Vann Alexandra helps projects reach their funding on Kickstarter and boasts a 100% success rate so I’m sure they’ll have no trouble funding this one. *EDIT – this project has already reached it’s funding goal in one day.

Check it out on Kickstarter.

GENER8TION (aka Surkin) has released a new EP called The New International Sound (Part II), and the title track featuring M.I.A. debuts with a massive video. What you’re looking at is not CGI, the video features 36,000 students of the biggest fighting school for kids in China, Shaolin Tagou. Director Inigo Westmeier previously shot a documentary called “Dragon Girls”, featuring three students from the school.
