I think that if I had to say ONE company that I would love to work for, that is the epitomy of all my fave editorial design, it would be Washington based Design Army. I’ve shown you their Alice in Wonderland work before (Oh my god I still can’t get over how great it is!) but they’ve done so much other great work. Who else can make wedding editorial not nauseating?!?!?!?
OH…MY…GOD!! It’s been a long time since I was THIS excited, but you will know what I mean when you see the work of Karan Singh. I don’t think I’ve ever seen patterns this great and the use of them in illustrations…and the colours, ohhhhh the colours! I think Mr. Singh may very well have hypnotized me with those moving patterns. Whatever, I don’t care, I will join his cult if I can have a few prints ;-)

Look at this amazing little character film by Argentinian 2Viente. I never get tired of design from South America because it’s so vibrant and colourful, the COMPLETE opposite of Danish design. No offense to Danish designers, I love the style from here too, but Denmark can be a little grey (just look out the window) so I think we need some colourful inspiration. This puts a huge smile on my face!

A church turned into a fastfood joint; blasfemic or bloody brilliant? Well, have a look at Hubbox designed by Meor Studio. I must admit I’m totally in love with the place and I think the loccation is transformed with great respect, keeping features like the stained windows and showing the room from it’s most advantageous side. I hope I’m not offending anyone here, but I find this much better than unused empty buildings or tearing the place down.

I’ve never blogged London based studio Graphic Thought Facility and I don’t know why, because I just LOVE all their work for fabric manufacturers Kvadrat. That calender is just so great and tactile, although the one downpoint would be that I’m allergic to dust and I reckon it gathers QUITE a bit. Still, it’s worth the antihistamines though ;-)

Check out the amazing illustrations by Chinese illustrator Yukai Du who’s based in London. I noticed the illustrations while reading “Nightmare Clients” in Computer Arts and they were a lovely accompaniment to the article. Visiting the website I was super exhited by the GIF animations on there (who doesn’t like GIFs???). The way the movement is used to make the backgrounds come alive is super cool.

I just love the style of Brooklyn based photographer Bobby Doherty. The hard light and the contrast between the quite vulgar food and the pastelly backgrounds is just so full of humour to me and puts a HUGE smile on my face.
