BLIK’S PICKS: TOP TEN OF 2012

Similar to the last few years, we are asking 10 Blik staffers to share their favorite graphic of 2012. Did your favorite graphic make our list? If not, leave a comment and let us know.

1. Jerinne, Blik co-founder

Ice Cream Cones by Christy Flora

“We’ve had so many great releases this year but the design I enjoy the most is Ice Cream Cones. Some people might think this is a kid’s graphic but it’s really Pop Art. When you see it on the wall – it’s this bold, colorful, iconic image of an everyday object at large scale – it’s like being at MOMA and would fit right in with works by Claes Oldenburg, Keith Haring and other great contemporary artists. And the fact that it comes with an assortment of colorful scoops so you can customize it just makes it even cooler.

United Shirt of America by Threadlesss and Allie Mounce

“Really clever design using the names of states to indicate their shape and placement… brilliant!”

3. Albert, Print Production Manager
All That Remains Desk Skin by Craww

“It reminds me of high school when I would always draw on my desk. This is much easier than actually drawing, of course.”

4. Jeremiah, Designer

New York eCity Re~Stik by e-Boy

“Having recently moved from NYC, this is something I can put up in my new apartment and feel like I am back in the city, minus the smells.”

Seasons by Mina Javid

“I like the simplicity of it and I love nature. My favorite part is that you can change the colors of the leaves according to the season.”

10. Scott, Blik co-founder
Arrows by Jim Houser

“Jim Houser has been on my radar for a couple of years and I recently reconnected with his work at the LeBasse Projects show in May. Arrows combines Jim’s quirky sense of humor and a whimsical character sporting a ten gallon hat.”
