I Love the work of Craig & Karl - formerly of the Rinzen design studio, because of the way they use typography to convey simple messages that are executed in a bold, thoughtful and humorous way; often in colour and with a distinct style. Despite being on opposite sides of the world, they collaborate daily out of their studios in New York, USA & Sydney, AUS. They specialise in illustration, install...

Kozyndan is the joint pseudonym of Los Angeles-based husband-and-wife illustrator team Kozue and Dan Kitchens, known in particular for their whimsical and occasionally absurd illustrations of modern cityscapes. I love these guys because of their traditional illustration style and imaginative and detailed panoramic artwork. A good example worth checking out is Nakano in Spring which is panoramic se...

Blast Agency are a design consultancy specialising in brand identity and brand communications. I especially love the work that they did for "Curious" and the creative paper range, due to their simple yet creative approach - Seven A5 cards each with a uniquely drawn letter that spelt out "Curious". A great example demonstrating the main principles in design and creative typography. ...

I love the work of KNSK Germany, specifically the work they created for WMF. The creation of type with the use of the image is well executed and original. They specialise in mainly corporate work in both print and TV advertising. They tend to use mainly contemporary design methods. Their clients vary from the telecoms industry to a knife manufacturer (shown)....

G.F.D.A. is a humorous yet worthy collaborative project between designers/educators Brian Buirge and Jason Bacher. Click on "This isn't enough. I need more fucking advice" on the home page to get more advice, read about the traumatic experience of their recently hired intern and watch their 'Getting Shit Done: The Passion Behind G.F.D.A.' video. I love this project because behind the simple fact...

The graffiti by Banksy always inspires me as there is always some sort of political meaning behind the work. Banksy's work in particular is cool because of the style of painting that is used which predominantly stencils and spray paint, which makes the detail of the finished product all the more amazing. Banksy's work can be seen almost all over the world and is always familiar when you find one....

Parallax is a brand and communications design firm based in Adelaide, South Australia. Matthew Remphrey is the Creative & managing director. I love the business cards by Parallax because they have incorporated elements that the reader can interact with through using cut outs and folds. Space, colour & simple graphic elements have also been used to draw attention to the information. This is summed ...
