One of my favorite aspects of working at Wieden+Kennedy is that I get to be around and be inspired by so many amazing artists, many of whom have been featured here. Today—let’s add Ramon Coronado and his side business to that list. His bio is impressive and humbling—and so is he. Public-Library is a non-traditional design group formed by himself and equally as impressive Marshall Rake.
Keywords: Swiss inspired, experimental and well-considered typography, unexpected and superbly executed design.
Two of my favorite illustrators, Saddo and Aitch, who are coincidentally also a couple have just released what I believe is their first small screen printed poster series. The money made from the sales go towards shipping the artists over the Canada from Romania for their first North American gallery show. Show some love!
As a small business owner, like most other small biz owners I imagine, we don’t use a landline at our office. Everyone just works off of their iPhone, which is great. Most of the time. But there are those times when I want to rip a phone off the ringer and scream, “WHAT?!” like an alternate universe Don Draper.
I’ve seen plenty of those old-school-rotary-phone-looking iPhone attachments but you know, I hate irony. And most things on that knick knacks wall at Urban Outfitters. The Curve BT iDock serves more as a phone than a hipster conversation piece. Placing an order now; slamming a phone down like a bawse next week.
You guys. Can we all just go travel all the time? Like Théo Gosselin and his friends, who are traveling across the USA and making a movie about it. No big deal right? And no big deal that they are taking incredible photographs in the process. This is the perfect blog to spend your not-too-busy Friday on. HFF! Read the rest of this entry »
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, editorial illustrations are insanely hard. Harder still is developing your own consistent style through a breadth of work. Harder still is keeping shit simple and attractive. Meet Jesse Lefkowitz, magazine bawse.
Whilst I am enjoying what is shaping up to be a 90 degree day in SUNNY Portland, OR—why don’t we have a look at the mindblowing art of Tokujin Yoshioka, specifically his 2010 Snow—Sensing Nature exhibition. He is known both for his beautiful design and art, as he crosses boundaries between retail collaborations with Issey Miyake, Hermes and Svarovski.
Sometimes it’s nice to work with a fucking pro. It just makes your life easier. There’s no hand holding. No primadonna whining. No. Headaches.
I recently had the pleasure of working on a quick-turnaround-low-budget-conceptually-limited project that required the skills of an illustrator to see the concept through to completion. Lucky for me, I got to work with a fucking pro.
Thanks, Adam. Next time, Immuna make like Kenny Effin P and throw you a fast ball right down the middle so you can really hit for the bleachers.
