Look at this great identity by Seattle based agency Creature (LOVE the name!). It’s for a wok food restaurant and I think it’s so great to see how a very simple vector style is made so lively using loads of contrast in size and placing and pairing that with a bit of natural wood and handdrawn letters and strokes. An absolutely fabulous mix with JUST the right ingredients! I bet the food is good too!

I blogged Timothy Goodman’s work for Ace Hotel AGES ago but it’s time give the man a bit of credit again because he has done AMAZING work since. He did a great installation at the Airbnb headquaters (great use of rough materials) but what I love even more is two personal projects that he did alongside Jessica Walsh (who, by the way, is also AWESOME!). You may have heard of their experiment to date each other for 40 days and now their dating experiment has become a book that that you can get your hands on in about a months and a half. It’s looking really nice from here. Just have a look at the video below. I’m also just loving the Quotes on Shit project. It’s so simple, and yet it just makes me smile every time I see one of those handlettered quotes on a painted figure. Thanks for brightening my day to both of you :-)

I’ve only just discovered Chicago based studio Firebelly, but I already love their work. I came across two of their publications for their series of typography exhibitions called Typeforce and they were just so well designed. I love how they are somehow visibly united in a series but yet SO different from each other. AWESOME work!

The other day I posted Louise Mertens and I think it’s really great to see how some of the same ingredients can create a totally different dish, to put it metaphorically. It’s the same style of fashion photos used in these kind of compositions but the two artists have created something very different from each other. I love that fact! Here, there are some bold colours and strokes instead. Would love both on my walls!

OK it’s safe to say that I am one of those girls who will run screaming for the hills at the sight of spiders and other gross insects. However, there is one insect that I absolutely LOVE and it’s the embroidered swarms of moths by Yumi Okita. The work that goes into these is just amazing and I think one of these will heal my insect phobia. Unfortunately, they’re all sold! Hopefully there’s more coming :-)
See them all on the Etsy shop.
The fashion illustrations by Belgian Louise Mertens are so yummy. I love how they are done without that many effects, but a few VERY well chosen ones. They are modern digital versions of a lot of the fashion collages we’ve seen trending the last few years. LIKE!

London based Here Design is a small set-up but they do great diverse stuff. From Nigella Lawson cookbooks to Adidas instore decor. Chances are, if you’re anything like me, you will have flipped through their pasta book in a bookstore or you will have stopped in your track in a supermarket while travelling at the sight of the Hairy Bikers crisp bags.
