Blue Monday

COLLAGES BY GUILHERME LEPCA

Vermelho – Red

Amarelo – Yellow

Somente O Verde – Green

Feeling a little low at the start of this week, but these vibrant, monochromatic-themed collages by Guilherme Lepca have brightened my mood — color therapy usually does. I hope they do the same for you.

Ace is the Place

ACE HOTEL MURAL BY TIMOTHY GOODMAN

As a designer of brand experiences, I am crazy-go-nuts about checking out interesting environments. Based on several recommendations from friends and this sensational, hand-drawn wall mural by Timothy Goodman, I’m mandating a stay at the Ace Hotel on my next trip to NYC.

Make a Great Impression

WILD AIR POSTER BY STUDIO ON FIRE


Studio On Fire offers both design services and letterpress printing under one roof, a genius combination that only adds to the exceptional production quality of their beautiful work. I featured them in this previous post, and hope that I find myself in Minneapolis sometime so I might visit them in person.

Is it time for new business cards yet? Hmmm…

Posterrific!

POSTER DESIGN BY WARM GRAPHICS

What is it about the modern music gig poster?

When I saw my first Rolling Stone layout designed by Fred Woodward with its power-packed typographic inventiveness, it was about the same time that I’d chosen my major of Visual Communications / Graphic Design at MICA. The music industry seemed to offer up such a lush concoction of subject matter, a job that would allow you interpret that spirit into a 2-D art form was a pretty sweet deal.

These compelling designs by Warm Graphics aptly bring to life feel of the music behind each poster —  in rich color and swirling symbolism. What’s not to love?

Type as Art

HAND LETTERING BY DANIELLE DAVIS

Completely charmed by this playful bit of hand drawn type by Danielle Davis. She’s thinking about setting it in letterpress or silkscreen — yes, please!

The Softer Side of Science

SCIENCE PROJECT PILLOWS BY HEATHER LINS

Sporting diagrams clipped from the pages of old Biology and Earth Sciences textbooks, these Science Project Pillows make a fun decorative accent. More than quirky and colorful, the materials are eco-friendly, too.
