The warm and colourful illustrations of Owen Gatley made my day when I first bumped into them. Lots of great travel-themed work can be found on his portfolio. Some of my favourites are the one for German Wings magazine, his take on Brisbane Airport or the one with the flying piñata for An Interesting Day.
Nature or even an image that represents it can help us calm down our stressed brain. With his graduation project Happy Faces, Dennis van Gaalen gave the top 10 monumental trees of Rotterdam a visual identity. Each face serves as an infographic to explain specific details of the tree it represents. 10 trees makes 10 beautiful faces.
The London Summer Olympics are in full throttle. Everyday hundreds of photographers from official ‘suppliers’ Getty and Reuters follow the more than 10,000 athletes in every step. Or crotch. Each day the NYTimes makes a nice round up of the thousands of images taken that day.
When German former Lufthansa executive Gunther Holtorf retired in 1989 he and his wife decided not to enjoy a quiet life. They packed their Mercedes Benz G-Wagen – named ‘Otto’ – and set of for a 18-month trip through Africa. Now, 23 years later, 74-year old Gunther is still driving, having visited over 200 countries. Along the way Gunter made some great pictures with his pair of Leica camera’s.
