Whilst reading my latest newsletter from Desktop mag, I came across the Positive Poster 2010 finalists. As you know, I’m a big fan on the promotion of positivity, so I am totally loving the concept behind this competition.
Basically, graphic designer Nick Hallam founded Positive Posters in 2009 with the aim to plaster prominent cities like Melbourne with positive messages. Soon the concept turned into a competition for graphic designers and artists, and is run annually between July and October.
Designers are given a brief which they need to respond to and finalists are then selected, and judged by an international panel of judges (including Melbourne’s very own David Pidgeon and Michaela Webb). They then run an exhibition for all to see and soak up that creativity and positivity. Winners will be announced 12 October 2010 at the exhibition held at No Vacancy Gallery.
The lucky winner then has 4000 copies of their poster plastered all over the streets of Melbourne. I’d love to get my hands on one of those!
This year’s brief is based on an interpretation of Benjamin Franklin’s famous glass half full quote, “I haven’t failed; I’ve had 10,000 ideas that didn’t work.”

Much like Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist, Todd Selby’s blog has a cult following that spans across the globe – all keen to see whose private space he will snap next.
Reserve your copy of The Selby is In Your Space now so you get it as soon as it ships.
Its 256 pages filled with tons of never seen before spaces. Plus it comes with stickers.
Sydney-siders lined up around the block last night for a chance to meet the man himself, Scott Schuman, and to get their treasured copies of his coffee table book signed at the Paddington Sass & Bide store.
