Packaging for Bonnie & Clyde limited edition gin

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.

Florence – a love story in a game

Ken Wong is the amazing Australian game designer and artist, behind the game Monument Valley, which won an Apple Design Award and two BAFTA Game Awards. He recently founded a new craft games studio called Mountains and just released a new and very interesting game. It is called Florence, and it is an intimate love story experienced through a game.

From the creator’s description: “Florence is an interactive storybook from the award-winning lead designer of Monument Valley about the heart-racing highs and heartbreaking lows of a young woman’s very first love.

Florence Yeoh feels a little… stuck. Her life is an endless routine of work, sleep, and spending too much time on social media. Then one day, she meets a cello player named Krish who changes everything about how she sees the world and herself.

Experience every beat of Florence and Krish’s relationship through a series of mini-game vignettes – from flirting to fighting, from helping each other grow… to growing apart. Drawing inspiration from ‘slice of life’ graphic novels and webcomics, Florence is an intimate and unforgettable story.”

Hand-drawn splashes of color by CJ Hendry

These amazing splashes of color, are actually hand-drawn! With pencil. Wow! Australian artist CJ Hendry is an Instagram phenomenon, sketching detailed hyper-realistic images. For this colorful series she uses just pencil, but she also used pen and ink for her previous, famous black & white series.

Trump Wave illustration

I just love this Illustration called “Trump Wave”! Created by A. Richard Allen for The Sunday Telegraph Money section, it won the Best Editorial Illustration and is also the overall winner for this year’s V&A Illustration Awards. The illustration, referencing to Hokusai’s iconic painting “Great Wave off Kanazawa”,  addresses the two most pressing political concerns of our time – migration and the Trump presidency.
