Friday thought- Happy Halloween

12 in 12

12 in 12

Received the beautifully designed 12 in 12 today from Craig Oldham. Its an accompaniment to a lecture he gave to bunch of students at Falmouth University. What a lecture that must have been! I posted about Craig and his work a few weeks ago and what really struck me then, and more so now I’ve...
Old books- Sexy books

Old books- Sexy books

Whilst cleaning the home office last night I stumbled across these two gems. Not that I have any interest in statistical geography, its the covers that really engaged me with these two mathematical gems. The covers seem to portray the inner content very well without any effort and displaying a simple minimalism you’d expect to...
Sara Haraigue

Sara Haraigue

Seriously great work from Sara Haraigue. Really nice site with a few quirks thrown in. Experimental typography and abstract future shapes, my cup of tea.
Carl Craig At Cité de la Musique, Paris, France

Carl Craig At Cité de la Musique, Paris, France

One of my favourite artists of late, Carl Craig jamming it out with an orchestra in Paris. Full video here. if you like this, check out his Sessions album or his Fabric mix. Great upbeat working music.
Surely?

Surely?

A Birmingham based studio is a good studio in my opinion. Some good identity and layout work from Surely studio.
Jasper Goodall

Jasper Goodall

After posting about Sanna Annukkas’ gorgeous illustrations, I was informed by Mark from Surely that she is Jasper Goodalls finance! Imagine that design powerhouse duo? Sanna working for clients like Keane, Jasper working for Muse and Nike. Match made in heaven I say! Anyway, some super illustration and stencil work from this trend setter.

Jim O’Raw

It gives me great pleasure to see my good friend Jim O’Raw, or Jim-Bob as I like to call him, finally has his site online. I’ve watched Jim’s work progress over the years through many different styles to what his work is today. At the moment he’s using a lot of print/photocopying techniques to some...
Sanna Annukka

Sanna Annukka

Massive portfolio of really cool illustrations from Sanna Annukka. Really love her clean, minimal and rather colouful style. Yes.. she also did all the cool Keane artwork.
Google Earth hits iPhone

Google Earth hits iPhone

I have been playing with it today and its rather cool. Tilting the phone allows for you to view the earth on a plane space style.
Podcasts

Podcasts

Since acquiring an iPhone I thought it best to get my pennith worth out of the sexy little black thing, so I’ve been addicted to Podcasts. There is a multitude of design related podcasts out there, perfect for journeys home when that banging psychedelic-rock-techno-dub music you bought recently, just is not doing the trick. I...
Uber clubage

Uber clubage

Check this beauty out in the home of electronic music Berlin. Its an outdoor club made out of transluscent industrial containers that flash to the beat! I want to go now! Check out the video of the Barcelona Kubik here.
Matterbox

Matterbox

I’m quite looking forward to a box of Matter arriving on my doorstep on November 29th. Essentially Matter is a box full of interesting stuff. Matter is a new way for companies to talk to people by giving them real, physical stuff–useful, amusing or interesting things to keep, give away or talk about. I found...
Oleg Duryagin

Oleg Duryagin

On a bit of a photography mission today. Oleg Duryagins pictures made me just sit and stare at each image thinking about other worldly thoughts.  The film “The Fifth Element” initially came to mind, with Jean Paul Gaultiers future retro costumes, as did the Kubrick masterpice “2001 – A Space Odyssey”, Star Wars and a...

Desktop Desktop

I’m loving NowNow’s Desktop-Desktop project. They take a snap of a creatives desktop and compare it with their desktop (virtual) working space.

Smashing Magazine have a showcase of retro typography.
Vincent Fournier

Vincent Fournier

It was the shot of Le Corbusier’s Firminy (pictured below) that bought me to the attention of this photographer. Vincent Fournier has a lot more up his sleeve though it seems. His space artwork is something else! It’s a cross between lunar landing and casual Russian spaceman comes round for tea at grandmas house!
Jake Walters

Jake Walters

Some really nice fashion/editorial/commercial work from Jake Walters. He seems to be the guy behind the post-production work of some of Non-Formats work.
Chris Ro

Chris Ro

Chris Ro aka A Dear Friend has some Crisp with a capital “C” work. He says he likes to look at all that can be classified as extremely complex yet ultimately, very simple. His lettering from shirts made me smile on a rather brisky British Monday morning!

Geometrical & instillations are two words that I’m quite fond of hearing together. Esther Stocker…

Dear efhiuewuifhweriohf4xxxx77&8923767@efifuh.com and eu%@33255GGggtget@vvvvvigggggrrraaaabxxxx.com from Russia Please understand this is a graphic design blog. Although I may want to write about other things occasionally, Viagra is not one of them. I understand that it is cold in Russia and that the little blue tablet might help your circulation in winter, but I can assure you...

Just what I needed with my morning coffee. Nice site, nice colours! Some really slick identity and print work from freelancer Alex Parrott.
Craig Oldham

Craig Oldham

I got a rather lovely email from Craig Oldham yesterday telling me I was going to receive one of his 12 in 12 booklets. I haven’t been back to his site in a while but he’s got loads of great stuff on.  His typography work is amazing in its brutal simplicity.  One thing that does...
