I love the naive style of Marcus Oakley’s illustrations. It’s sorta how you drew as a kid only a million times cooler. And I generally love people who draw lions and owls heheheheh.

Kosuke Ikeda is a fantastic Japanese illustrator who I noticed on a visit to Hong Kong. I love his use of patterns in his drawings.

Pierre-Louis Mascia is a wonderful illustrator, his use of texture is really amazing be it typography or lace. I can’t find his own website, but I fell over his illustrations on his management’s website.

I think you’ve noticed by now that I have a weakness for silkscreen printed posters. And The Heads of State is no exception. I first noticed them at a Death Cab for Cutie concert where they’d done the poster. Great sounds combined with great visuals…mmmmmm

Underware is a wonderfull type foundry with fonts like Bello and Sauna. But they also host the most amazing workshops with type in various “media”. The results are very inspiring. This kinda thing would make a great teambuilding exercise in a design agency ;-)

Be sure to watch the Liberté movie.
Let’s grab another Danish post. If you don’t already know Plastic Kid it’s about bloody time. Plastic Kid is Jakob Printzlau who is located in Copenhagen. He’s a friend of a friend kinda thing and I have followed his work for about 8 years. He’s gooooood (although website not very uptodate).

Peter from Trykwerk wrote me a while back to ask for a spot on Inspiration Lab and here it is! I would like to share some of their editorial work, because editorial design is close to my heart as it is incidently what I do best. I would love to see more spreads like these in Danish magazines where editorial design could definitely benefit from a kick in the ass. Let’s get rid of the gutless rigid three column design with a boring sans serif headline and a full page photo on the facing page. And for Trykwerk: let’s see lots more of work like this!

I have COMPLETELY forgot to share another fave from Typo Berlin with you guys. Probably got overexcited. The man in question is Christian Schwartz who is the designer of the font Giorgio commissioned by New York Times magazine T. The font is whipped cream for the eyes! Seriously, it’s so freakin’ nice. As you can tell I’m in my new classisistic/high contrast phase. Thanks to my stealing sidekick Jakob for reminding me ;-)

Less Rain is a digital agency with offices in London, Berlin and Tokyo. Although they have labelled themselves digital they do impressive work in both digital and print media. Their portfolio shows a very productive agency with high standards and their own website is very much worth a visit too.

When I was recently in London I noticed the fantastic visual identity of Established and Sons, a furniture company with an eye for design. I was curious to know who was behind the scenes when it came to Established and Sons own design so I rummaged around a bit and found the agency Made Thought. Be sure to check out the Established and Sons work on their website.
