Digging pretty hard on the unique and bizarre design style of Charles Williams. He’s at his best when he’s straddling some line between collage, illustration, editorial design, nonsense infographic lookin’ business and space age freak outs. And I’m only talking about the work on his personal site. He’s got another entire site dedicated to more straightforward design. Extracurricular.
Bonus points: amazing portrait of Draper below the fold. A man coming apart. Translates perfectly.

Tom Messenger is a graphic designer from London with a simple + classic style that I can really get behind. His work has been seen in Color Magazine + All Tomorrow’s Parties.
Check out his portfolio + his Flickr.
Ed Nacional is a current student at Parsons + a design intern at the NY Times. So, it should be obvious to everyone reading that the kid’s got no future. I joke, I kid! Ed has a very, very impressive portfolio. It’s interesting to see his editorial style carried over into his work outside the walls of the Times.
Be sure to check out Ed’s site + follow him on Twitter.
Say hello to Mark Weaver, an excellent designer out of ATL (and our neighbor to the South). You can see more of Mark’s work here (or you could just buy an issue of Paste–he headed up their redesign.) Anddd, you can buy that Civil War-lookin’ lynx poster up top for just $25 (!!) here.
A few custom lampshades reinvented using vintage wallpapers. Oversized=yes. Color schmorgazbord=yes.

Ignore the fact that Christopher David Ryan has three first names and therefore cannot be trusted and check him out: he’s a graphic artist out of frosty and unforgiving Portland, Maine that runs one-man shop Atmostheory.
His website is host to a single piece of his work, everyday. Everyday. That’s a lot of days to have something new to put on a website.
And although Mr. Ryan’s work may not change your life you’ve got to respect it if for no other reason than the sheer quantity and frequency. Whoa, dude.
It’s kind of like photography: you shoot 500 photos to get one great shot. Poke around his site and you’ll probably find something you’ll enjoy, if not today, tomorrow.
