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

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...

Looking into typography & type packages, I immediately thought of Gemma O'Brien after seeing her speak & perform her process at various creative events in Australia. She is a real enthusiast for type, she calls herself a 'letterer' & treats the work she creates as Art. They are a visual masterpiece, all hand drawn & crafted with thought & process. She creates type packages for commercial use, but ...

I adore the work of Amber Asay, a recent graduate of BYU university who is living and working in Orlando Florida and interning at Disney Design Group. The examples of her work are student projects, and I was really impressed with her simple but clever designs. She has a clear understanding of what 'branding' means and executes this really well through repetition, typography and colour. The...

There's something about this curious little identity that I really like. The simple colour palette, maybe, with that Mambo-like red eye watching over it all? The fit-out makes the restaurant look like something from another world.  Make sure to check out ...

Lovely business cards for UK digital marketing company Tall. With a print process that involved die-cutting, laser cutting, block foiling and three different types of stock, they certainly pack a punch.  ...
