Stumbled across Bench afternoon. It has some really amazing design work with lots of publications and typesetting. Nice to see a blog that isn't just the latest trend. Bench has conceptual content that links directly back to the original designer!  ...

Spanish graphic design studio Lo Siento have developed a 3D typographic technique where they inject coloured water inside the blisters of bubble wrap to create letters. Having been commissioned for a Wired magazine cover, it's a delicate process but clearly worth it! ...

I like the layering effects he creates within his pieces. He is able to get lots of beautiful textures in without his work looking cluttered or overwhelmed. Many of Noa's proje...

I thought it was especially interesting to see a lot of what I might term a pretty 'slick/minimalist' aesthetic. I love a bit of hand crafted design as much as the next person, but deep down (and as anyone who knows me would attest) I...
