Cafe Pause Poster Series 05

I announced it a month back, and now the fifth edition of the “Cafe Pause Poster Series” is finally up at the entrance of the cafe. Again, huge thanks to Luis for doing this — it’s a great way to kick off 2010 at Cafe Pause! You can better see the poster here, as well as an explanation of the concept behind it.

Cafe Pause Poster Series: Luis Mendo

I’m very happy to be able to share the latest entry in my “Cafe Pause Poster Series” (#5), a contribution by Amsterdam-based art director Luis Mendo. You know about the Tokyo map he just produced for the next issue of Journal de Nîmes, and now here’s also his homage to the cafe. The concept revolves around the seats found in the cafe — there are 24 (all pictured), with 23 people shown, the idea being that the 24th customer is you!

The poster should occupy the entrance of the cafe sometime this week, but unfortunately won’t be ready for tomorrow night‘s PauseTalk (Vol. 35).

Gigantic thanks to Shantell Martin for creating what will be the third poster for the Cafe Pause Series I started earlier this year — previous posters were created by Ian Lynam and PMKFA. I will get it printed early this week, so it should be greeting visitors to the cafe soon enough.

Instead of having an empty signboard at the entrance of Cafe Pause, I decided to start a seasonal poster series. First up, a contribution from Tokyo-based graphic designer Ian Lynam. Below is a better look at the poster. Thanks, Ian!
