This gin packaging is so cool. Designed by Simone Hodgskiss (aka Pearly Yon), an Australian illustrator, designer and letterer for a micro distillery in Belgium. Hodgskiss’ illustrations are inspired by tattoo style line work, and the color selections as well as the print finish are simply amazing.
And this is the first batch of Bonnie & Clyde, where all the beautiful type has been created from scratch by Pearly Yon, finding inspiration from the 1930’s era.
I love this. It is one of the posters from DDB New York’s campaign for ADC’s Annual Awards “Call for Entries” from 2011. The tagline says: “Keep fighting the good fight”. I think all designers can relate to that!
This is sooo funny!! Ryan Gosling is the host of SNL‘s season premiere, and stars as an obsessed graphic designer haunted by the typeface Papyrus and its use for the blockbuster film Avatar! Saturday Night Live at its best!!
This is the official poster for Yiorgos Lanthimos‘ new film: “The Killing of a Sacred Dear” designed by Vasilis Marmatakis. Once again, Marmatakis has created a strange, but also very memorable film poster, that is also special in its own way.
This is a beautiful logo designed by Greek illustrator Costas Theoxaris for Mary Pickford, a new cocktail bar in Piraeus, Greece. I especially love the gold stencil logo as a mural! Exquisite work and very art deco style.
Love these exotically colorful screen-printed cards for “Khatulistiwa”, a travel consultancy business in Bali. They are designed by Jakarta-based agency The 1984. The name card is screen-printed in several alternating colors on very thick 500gsm paper. The edge coloring gives a great finishing touch.
On Saturday January 28 it is the Chinese New Year and this year it is the Year of the Rooster. These are just some nice illustrations for greeting cards by Japanese designers.
On a more artistic level, Japanese artist Feebee has created an imaginary beast, a fantastical combination of all 12 zodiac animals. The beast features parts from a rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig all in one. It was inspired by the piece “A Beast called Kotobuki” that was created as a woodblock print by an ukiyo-e artist from the late Edo period (1848–54).
