Handmade Day is one of my favorite briefs. The students in Sydney took the brief to create a book / CD / poster without using the computer. The results were a lot of fun. Check them out below. Also keep your eyes peeled for the making of video for the Edward Scissorhands poster!  ...

Her beautiful handcrafted technique mixed with amazing, vibrant colours results in mind-blowing papergraphics. Check out her website www.artyulia....

I'm really loving the simplicity of InHouse's designs. From the clever play on words, to the bold statements they make with their branding, all simply using type. They also make excellent use of contrast to make their designs pop....

With a really engaging website that documents the conceptual process for nearly all of their work (yep - all the ups, downs and in-betweens), how could you not 'Love These Guys'?! Experimental Jetset are a three-human design studio out of Amsterdam who are known for their contemporary and conceptual style (and use of sans serif like Helvetica - in fact they even designed the poster for the movie)....

Unmatched Style is another great resource for inspiration when it comes to web. What's also good about it is we're not only seeing pretty pictures, but some useful discussion about each site, how it's been built and what's really working for it. Check our Unmatched Style here. ...

Helsinki-based Werklig is doing some really lovely work. I love getting to see how a design studio makes their mark on whole buildings, not just bits of paper or the corner of the internet. Seeing how a brand can take over a space and make it something unique.  ...

The students here at the Sydney college were kicking back with a few drinks after class a couple of Fridays ago, and talk turned to favourite smells. That smell right before a thunderstorm. The smell of a new car. The smell of new tennis balls, and old books. It feels like Commodity heard that conversation and...

Fiji Airways underwent a complete rebrand to more closely align the airline with its proud Fijian heritage. The previous logo had no relation to the origin of Fiji and was not appealing to the eye, thus the decision to rebrand to Fiji Airways. The part I love most about the new design of the logo was that it was designed by a local Masai art designer from Fiji. The detail and meaning within the lo...

I think the re-brand of San Francisco Design Week is beautiful and adaptable, as well as being simple and clever. I love that the type in block allows the typeface to be translated into a different colour easily, while keeping the effectiveness of the logo. I love the idea of the letters peeking over each other - emulating the houses in the San Francisco hills. I think it's a personal touch that r...
