Graphic designers Thomas & Jurgen, Thunder and Bold and Olivier Vrancken initiated an exciting exhibition. They asked 30 artists, all with an interest or background in skateboarding, to create a piece of work on a deck. They’re sold by auction and this weekend is your last chance to buy one.
A full-day conference with eight presentations about web design and user experience. Speakers include Dan Mall, Simon Collison, Stephen Hay, Geri Coady and Typekit. And you’ll find me there as host of the day! MC, whatever. I’m a big fan of these in-depth conferences and hope to see you there.
Recently I found a collective called Always With Honor, consisting of Tyler & Elsa Lang. Their colourful illustrative work is very strong (and look at these marks!). Their most recent series of stamps sporting coastal birds developed for the U.S. Postal Service looks magnificent.
Early this year, designers from all across Google, including Creative Lab and the Material Design team, came together and worked on a new brand identity. A logo that can beautifully exist on all the different platforms, devices, stages and screens Google products live on. I needed some time to say goodbye to the old one, but now I like it a lot.
Karolis Strautniekas creates very smart, fine and warm illustrations. Often textured, balancing between surreal and realistic, his portfolio is a joy to click through. Personal favourites of mine are the cover illustration for DuJour and his latest work for Forbes.
