I first saw this image of ‘Up’ painted onto the floor and walls of a car park around christmas time last year, but it has taken me until now to do some proper research into who created it. The answer is Axel Peemoeller! And I have found other pictures of his ‘work’ in a garage in Melbourne, Australia too! This is so clever! Something which is only legible at a certain point creates an interesting image, even when...

I first became aware of Sandy Skoglund’s work when researching the word ‘Revenge’ for my 3D Design award project Revenge Is Sweet. I googled revenge and her work ‘Revenge of the goldfish’ came up in the image search. My first impression was that it was odd, but clever (which can be said for a lot of things funnily enough!). ‘Revenge of the goldfish’ is a bedroom scene with every item, apart from the goldfish and humans,...

Gene Federico’s advert for Woman’s Day magazine is genius! This advert was created in 1953… that’s 56 years ago! To achieve something like this is amazing really when you think about the level of technology available back then in comparison to now! Of course the age is clear, but the concept is so great; I love it! I think black and white makes it look classy? I also found this parody, ‘intended to promote healthy lifestyles’ but I...

I’m not ashamed to admit that I am a really big fan of Harry Potter; firstly the books because the films are amazing, but never able to compare to the amount of detail in the books, BUT there has been some really nice typography in the films. It was the first film that touched on some great typography, mainly with the calligraphically hand-written envelope which contained Harry’s letter of acceptance into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The envelope also had...

No, I think I actually do J’adore him haha Julien Vallée’s work is FANTASTIQUE! (And I haven’t quite figured it out yet… but there is something French about him I’m sure? He is from Montreal, Canada but currently working in Berlin, Germany) I first saw his work on the back of issue 70 of Eye magazine (year’s subscription from the ex). He is also mentioned in an article; ‘Make it Real’ The pastel colours used with the sharp...

I only just found Craig Damrauer’s work (at a Graphic Design student’s blog, here) but instantly loved it! http://www.morenewmath.com/ is a website containing lots of maths equations, but maths you will like! There is nothing amazing about the presentation of these equations; they are plain and simple but that is enough! You will see what I mean, these are my favourites so far but there are HUNDREDS to go through on the website and he posts a...

As a female, I am quite interested in Fashion etc… and have been recieving copies of asos magazine (As seen on screen – an online website selling fashion often very similar to those seen on celebrities www.asos.com) regularly for a little while now. In the June 2008 Issue they had a feature about ‘The creatives of tomorrow’; including a model booker, tattooist, gallery director, art director (Ben Freeman who I will mention in another J’adore...

I found out about Nicole Dextras’ work when I was doing some research in my Ice Lollies Typography project . From what I have seen on her flickr account, she makes giant letters out of ice and leaves them on a place called Toronto Island (which I assume to be in America?)  to just see what happens to them. I wouldn’t say there is anything amazing about the typeface, but the background scene combined with...

I have been building up a collection of images that I have found on the internet and liked for a while now, and I think it is maybe about time to share these with others. Some of the work I have found by artists/photographers/graphic designers is AMAZING and I only hope that one day I can produce such creative and imagnitively captivating work! My first thought was to blog about a couple of images each week, but maybe...
