So right now you’re either thinking ‘WTF is Behance’ or ‘Ohhh Behance!’ For those of you who don’t know what Behance is, google describes it to be a ‘Resource for artists to display their work and network for creative jobs.’ Art Directors, Photographers, Fashion Designers, Advertisers, Graphic Designers, Typographers, Animators, Illustrators and every other kind of creative person out there – this is the place for you! In my student days I used to live...

So you’re looking for inspiration but where do you start to look? Well, chances are that your 1st stop is probably google, but how many other people have googled the same thing as you? Plenty. Which makes it hard to find something a little bit special and ‘out there’ – you want to find something different and exciting, right? Also, as great as Google is, the success of your search depends on the wording you...

I think it’s easier to look at design when you can’t understand the content and this work by Patricio Murphy is the perfect example. I’m not distracted by the text; all I can see is the modern, dynamic layout and imagery. I don’t understand Argentinian, so luckily  it says a bit about the project on Patricio’s Behance – below is a programme for Glow festival… The layout has so many interesting components, with the tables...

Tom Davie’s Behance is choc-a-bloc with brilliant typographic posters This is similar to a project I have planned. I was lucky to acquire some old psychology text books (thanks to a tip off that the Psychology department at Uni were getting rid of a lot of old books) and hopefully now that the Christmas holiday is here I will be able to work on it! All will be revealed soon 🙂 Wow. I love paper...

The bad news is that now I’m a student my shopping trolley doesn’t contain a lot of beautiful packaging examples, in fact probably none at all! The good news is that I can get my beautiful packaging fix thanks to Laura Berglund 🙂 I think her packaging for Reve is B-E-A-utiful and it has an unusual story behind it too… The Reve brand is in fact not about food, but a Hot Air Balloon company....

Today I chose to wear a top with a moustache on it, and it made me think; why do Graphic Designers like moustaches? What is the fascination? They’re just the nasty hair on an old man/ladies upper lip? Surely they should be disgusting? It’s not just me… A Milton Glaser-esque tribute for Moustache lovers by Trevor Conrad! Amaia Arrazola @ Behance Ariana Nicolay @ Behance ClubMedia @ Behance Maybe Graphic Designers love moustaches because they...

&  Scott Marc Berry, a 3rd year at Leeds College of Art. & I love the simplicity & sophistication of this project! Graphic Designers always seem to have a fascination with ampersands & who can blame us? They look cool & are a lovely way of saying & 🙂 Which is your favourite ampersand? I like the cute little tails on Harrington! & Such a cute ‘campaign’ pushing for the use of ampersands of all...

Jonathon Davies’ temperature associated colour based calendar for 2008 is ironically really cool or HOT… Depends where you come from I think!? What I’m trying to say is: I think it’s great! I love the front cover – a typographical summary of the year using an adjective to describe each month. Bold, colourful, simple and effective, the calendar is more focused on the visual but still functional. I think I would have prefered it to be one long piece, instead of...

This guy has been popping up for a while now. He’s only a year older than me but has already acomplished so much! Rishi Sodha. I am so jealous of his work: Ohhh it’s so pretty! Wow. The only word needed really, but I love that he has managed to use the rainbow colours, but kept it from looking tacky/child-like. How they’re folded is perfect because it shows a snippet of the whole poster… makes me want...

I love watercolour fashion illustrations, and I have tried my hand at blending watercolours several times but have not succeeded yet! Sasha Prood has deffinitely got it down to a tee though. I love her watercolour letters… the colours… the textures 🙂 The bleeding edges are really effective in contrast to the hard, square letterforms I really love the 3D element of this one! I am presuming that she achieved these effects is by using a stencil?...
