Una galería con más de 95 diseños de cerillos promocionales, esos que te regalan en hoteles, restaurantes o bares. Normalmente son hechos completamente de papel y en las partes exteriores e interiores del empaque encuentras los datos de las empresas.
Estos cerillos fueron coleccionados por un señor que viajaba por todas partes del mundo, cada que llegaba a un lugar procuraba pedir unos cerillos promocionales. Ahora su colección es compartida en una cuenta de instagram.
Ésta galería podría funcionar para los que están buscando inspiración para hacer sus propios diseños sobre una de estos cerillos promocionales. Por que hay diseños de todo tipo, desde los que son muy simples y minimalistas donde sólo tienen le nombre de la empresa y un número telefónico.
Hasta los que no sólo imprimen los datos de las empresas en el frente de los cerillos, sino que también imprimen información o una imagen sobre los propios cerillos. Eso lo pueden hacer por que como dije antes, normalmente esos cerillos son hechos de cartón.
Hay otros cerillos que tienen un formato diferente, unos más cuadrados, otros con un formato de la típica caja que contiene cerillos de madera, otros tienen cortes que funcionan como si fueran ventanas.
Otra cosa interesante de la colección, es que como el dueño la comenzó a armar en los años cincuenta, hay diseños que podríamos llamar el día de hoy como vintage. No sé si les pase a ustedes pero cuando yo veo uno de estos objetos, me dan ganas de mandar hacer unos con mi logotipo y con toda la información en este caso de mi blog.
Si les gusta el diseño en objetos antiguos deben de seguir esa cuenta, estoy seguro que alguno les gustará, pero sobre todo como ya lo decía antes estas galerías funciona para los diseñadores que andan en búsqueda de inspiración | [ Ejemplo de cerillos promocionales ]

When Croissant meets Donut (“Cronut”), Ramen meets Burger (“Ramen Burger”) or Pho meets Dumpling (…”Phumpling”), you get the best of both worlds. The same goes for our shop3xu “Matchbox-Card”.
Inspired by the elements of greeting cards, gift boxes, and miniatures, these tiny “cards” are hand-crafted from real matchboxes and hand colored individually to give each of them that very personalized feel. But the best part has to do with the connection between the cover and the hidden message inside each box, which creates a sweet little surprise for the person who opens them.
I am a landscape photographer. In July 2015, I traveled to Iceland. During two weeks, I took thousands of pictures. Iceland was on my wish list for a long time. If you like photographing landscapes, you must definitely visit this place. However, you should keep in mind couple of things. These are my personal impressions about Iceland.
The weather in Iceland is unpredictable and extreme. Maybe it’s only my luck, but most of the time it was very windy, rainy, and as for July it was rather cold. However, you should always be prepared for shooting. Sometimes it’s raining for a whole day, and suddenly sun rays break through the thick layer of clouds for a while. When it happens, it’s good to be in nice place, so look to the sky often.
When you consider renting a car, get a 4×4 car. A bigger car can be a good place to sleep in instead of a tent when it’s windy. And on gravel roads which are the only ones in the interior 4×4 car is a must. Besides, by such car you are able to cross rivers. However, in Iceland everything changes very rapidly, from weather to terrain, so check river before crossing it.You should be also aware of sandstorms which can completely destroy car paint in a couple of minutes.
In Iceland, there are also some unusual obstacles when photographing. There are places and periods in which thousands of mosquitoes are flying around you and your camera. At some locations, you may smell strong odor of sulphur in the air, and you couldn’t stay in such place for a long time.
Iceland offers a great variety of landscapes’ types. On such small space, you can see an ocean, coast, fjords, mountains, glaciers, waterfalls, rivers, lakes, volcanos, thermal springs, and fields of lava. It’s like training camp for a landscape photographer. I read a guide when I traveled through Iceland, however, the most beautiful places were those not mentioned in the guide, so follow your intuition to choose the way, use the force!
Iceland is the place I fell in love with, but it’s a complicated relationship. It offers beautiful views, but by extreme conditions it challenged me almost every day. Here is my selection of photographs I captured during this trip.
I’ve been creating pop culture art professionally for 20 years, and have always shot my own photo reference, usually with the greatest model I’ve ever met, my dad.
Most of my work, which includes movie posters, toy packaging, art prints and advertising art, relies to some degree on photo reference. Some of that reference includes screen grabs or press photos of the subject to achieve a proper likeness and correct costume details. The rest is made up of photographs that I take myself, of my father, with appropriate lighting and costuming. I reinterpret these photos, mixing them together with shots of the movie characters to create a new, unique image.
When I have a concept sketch for a piece worked out, I pop over to my parents’ house and get my dad to dress up like the character while I set up lighting to match the scene. He’s very accommodating, and willing to pose in all sorts of ways, and always manages to get into character. He never says no to a request and is always enthusiastic. I have yet to meet a better model.

Thirty years ago on my first of many visits to India, I saw a form of architecture entirely unknown to me. Called a “stepwell” (but known throughout India by many other names including “vav” and “baoli”). I was stunned after peering over a low stone wall to find the ground disappear beneath me. A man-made stepped chasm plunged six stories underground, full of ornate stone columns and sculpture that seemed to disappear into murky shadows.
Talk about dramatic: it was thrilling, subversive, and disorienting to be staring down into architecture rather than looking up at it. I’d never experienced anything like it.
I’d studied architecture and art, so why hadn’t I ever heard of a stepwell? Turns out very few people have, even in India, and consequently these unique subterranean edifices have largely slipped off history’s grid. Four years ago, with that indelible memory still haunting me, I began seeking out more stepwells and found myself utterly obsessed. Now, I’ve seen about a hundred and twenty in seven states, with more soon to come.
The purpose of a stepwell was simple: provide water 24/7, all year long. But in India’s dry desert states, accessing groundwater might mean digging a hole nine stories deep, and the only way to reach the buried water was by long stepped corridors. When torrential monsoon rains eventually moved in for weeks or months, the water table rose significantly and many of the steps – if not all – would submerge, gradually revealing themselves again as the water level subsided.
Last year, the largest, costliest, most grandiose stepwell of all – Rani ki Vav in Patan, Gujarat – finally became a UNESCO World Heritage Site after many years on the waiting list. Hopefully, this will stimulate more interest, and perhaps in the future, stepwells will appear on tourist itineraries rather than on an “extinct species” list.
