From New York to Berlin, here’s German illustrator/artist/designer Sarah Illenberger. I first noticed her work when I saw some of her infographics for Neon Magazine but when I looked in to her portfolio I was so amazed by her play with materials, from paper to meat and just the overall humour in her work.

I’ve featured Craig Ward aka Words Are Pictures before but he has done a lot of cool work since so I think it’s time for another post. With a provocative stand on legibility as being overrated he might get a few eyerolls on the way but I think his body of amazing typographic illustrations speak for themselves. His website does not seam to work at the moment but if you Google his name you will get lots of goodies. Just look ate these pieces, I love the piece he did for the cover of Computer Arts Projects, where he apparently broke 20 sheets of glass before he got the perfect image.

Greetings from NY on my first day at work in the Big Apple. I’ve taken my job with me abroad for a few months while my students are on summerbreak. Design agency TODA has been nice enough to let me sit at their space which is very inspiring. Look at the lovely view from my window.

Well out of nowhere I’m in New York, sorry I’ve been too busy to share. I’ll be here over the summer, recharging my creative batteries. So even with intensive jetlag what do I end up doing? Trawling supermarkets for great packaging design. And here’s one! Check out Caldrea a US brand that makes all sorts of products for cleaning. Doesn’t sound like your cup of tea? Well these products would get me cleaning!
