The first time I visited this guy’s site I got just a liiiiiittle scared. I’m pretty sure there are dead animals there somewhere. But he is amazing, I have rarely seen such richness in design.

I love the posters by Hammerpress, I am not sure if they are screenprinted but they definitely have a sensory feel and a lovely retro style.

See them here.

Paprika is a really talented Canadian agency they do fantastic graphic and spatial design. I feel in love with Paprika when I saw their hairpin font. But they have such an impressive collection of really high standard work. Their website is definitely worth dropping by (notice the loadbars)

I noticed Ariane when I saw her work for Norsk Form (the white cutout) which I thought was very interesting and she has lots of additional great stuff on her site. Ariane was an intern with Stefan Sagmeister and I think she is actually the creator behind some of the work in the Sagmeister post here on Inspiration Lab.

I have been trying to find out who did the Nike Dot Matrix artwork for their V-series shoes for ages and I have finally found UK agency Spin. They ROCK!

Judith Schalansky visited my workplace a while back to give a lecture on blackletter fonts. She is so fond of them that she has made an entire book about them called “Fraktur Mon Amour” and I LOVE it! I definitely have a fraktur fetish too. If you get a chance you should check it out, I think it is currently out of print but it will be back soon. It looks like a bible in pink and black, it’s scrumptious!

Buy it on amazon.
