Being a complete fan of editorial design I love when I find great pieces in that category. I’m a huge believer in visual storytelling and that’s why the work of Lou Vega caught my eye.

Check out the collage work by UK illustrator Michelle Thompson. Her collages are a visual chaos but I am totally loving the busy look that is still somehow based on the grid that occurs from the materials.

I often wish I was better with Photoshop, sure I can do the light weight editing but when it comes down to the hard photo manipulation stuff I’m lost. On the other hand you often see photoshopped collages that has gone way overboard on effects don’t you? That’s why I was so happy to find Maxime Quoilin aka. Remain Steadfast. The work is super clean and well done without the effects ever taking over. I like!

After getting the crazy idea of doing a cooking magazine for an exam way back when I was a student myself, I’ve had the greatest respect for food photographers. It is amazing how good they can make food look and it is also amazing how awful good food can look if you don’t know what you’re doing. So when I recently got a tip to check out Katie Quinn Davies I was delighted, it’s AMAZING how good, yet not undoable she makes food look. I would definitely bend over backwards to do a food magazine with her.

Is it a sleepy monday morning? Quite possibly. Is it a grey day in Denmark? Hmm…very likely. And where am I? I’m on my way to Bangkok for a bit of heat and well deserved vaccation. Envious? Well, no need to panic, I’ve posted ahead so even if the world goes under this blog will keep running…for the next two weeks anyway.

So let’s face it, with skin tone as pale as an aspirin (a guy once said that to me as a compliment!) I may very well come back looking like a lobster. But if so I’m thinking about doing a “tan tattoo” like this project by Janine Rewell. What a fantastic illustration! I’ve posted Janine a few years back but it’s so lovely to come back to her website and see loads of new stuff since then. So do swing by.

I always tell my students that if they want to, they can find something really interesting in every assignment even though the client isn’t super sexy. That’s why I love finding studios like LoSiento. Would you jump up and down with joy if you got a brief from the School of Organic Osteopathy? I don’t think so. Luckily LoSiento weren’t afraid to roll up their sleeves and get cracking. That’s how they came up with this great displayfont to communicate the school. There is lots of other interesting work on their website to so go forth, and be inspired!
