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...

Raquel’s quirky origami business card caught my eye… Who doesn’t love dot-to-dots? I really like how the message isn’t revealed straight away and also how the words are connected even though they’re on different lines! Just think this is a really unique and memorable business card which I would be very happy to own one of! Cute, interactive and memorable! Aside from liking this because 26 is my birthday number, numbers formed by stars and...

With it being Valentine’s day yesterday and all, I thought it was about time to post about Marian’s work seeing as I’ve had this drafted since before christmas(which is quite weird considering the subject)! Whether you are loved up or anti-valentines, theres no denying that these laser cut, used Christmas cards from 2010 are beautiful! Marian asked her friends to send her used christmas cards and 500 cards later…. … she had a lot of hearts!...

I had seen the image below a couple of times before I was able to work out who had made this amazing piece of art, but finally I can thank Isaac Salazar! WOW, just wow! How amazing is that? I love books anyway, but I just think this is amazing! And to think that these are created by just folding the pages of a book! AMAZING! Find more of Isaac’s creations on flickr! Here is the...

FPO is my new favourite website at the moment! I think I could actually spend forever browsing on there, but that’s never going to happen of course! Anyway, my recent favourite is a Wedding invitation set by Ken Rothermich. Designed for his own wedding, I absolutely love Ken’s black and white illustration with overlaid shocking pink, sans serif type! There is the perfect balance of old and new – the illustration with a romantic/baroque feel...

Was just browsing the wordpress tag surfer when I came across this: I was quite intrigued, even more so when I saw the title of the blog is This Artwork Is Not Available In Your Country – love that! Turns out it the man responsible is Portuguese Graphic Designer João Neves. He describes it as his ‘graphic diary….. with no other purpose than to make one graphic design exercise per day,everyday (hopefully) monday to friday. It’s only a...

This post is half a year late really! The Topshop make up range has been available since May 2010, but better late than never 🙂 I was just looking back over the blog of Vasare: I have been following her blog for a while now and she always has really interesting things to share so definitely worth a browse! Having a second look at the Topshop Make Up Packaging has just made me realise how...

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...

O.k. boys and girls, today’s lesson is Type Anatomy… Ligature, Loop & Stem, alternatively known as Scott Boms and Luke Dorny (along with some help from Grant Hutchinson) are the creators of a set of truly beautiful typography posters… Only 100 prints of The Typographic Anatomy Lesson make it annoyingly exclusive (as well as more beautiful and desired!) … Each individually signed and sealed… ah it’s the small details which always make me happy. Also their...

This post has been planned for a while now… oops! Better late than never 🙂 Designmonat is a Design Festival in Graz, Austria 2009 was the first year and it had a beautiful Graphic style (not so much a fan of the 2010 version) by Christoph Almasy, Franz-Xaver Daublebsky and Isabella Thaller. Cute little button badges <3 I love the clashing bright colours used. It gives a funky, fresh and young feel to the identity...

I would love to know Mia Nolting‘s secrets… creative secrets I mean. The secret to her success and all! I think her handwriting is really lovely. My favourite font ever? Another thing I find lovely about her is her lists. I love to write lists, it helps me a lot but they’re never as lovely looking as Mia’s! Biro over newspaper – genius. Lovely typography – I wish my handwriting was like that! I really...

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....

Morning! Just seen someone point out that it’s 10.10.10 today and it reminded me that I’m nearly at 10,000 views! October has been a great month for views already… 454 views in 10 days! That is AMAZING!  That’s more views than I had for the whole of July this year haha So really, thanks to whoever is reading – it makes me happy 🙂 BUT I have a challenge on my hands…. I need 101...

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...
