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.
Thank you Alex Savakis, for featuring me in your blog, I really enjoyed doing this interview!!!
“You give me money, I’ll give you creative.
I’ll start when the check clears.
Time is money. More time is more money.
I’ll listen to you. You listen to me.
You tell me what you want, I’ll tell you what you need.
You want me to be on time, I want you to be on time.
What you use is yours, what you don’t is mine.
I can’t give you stuff I don’t own.
I’ll try not to be an ass, you should do the same.
If you want something that’s been done before, use that.
If you want your way, you have to pay.
If you don’t pay, I have final say.
Let’s create something great together.”
This is actually a work contract for a design firm in Chicago. So straightforward and simple!
In Japan, manhole covers don’t have to be ugly. Japanese sewer lids can be beautiful, intricate examples of urban design, with references to local sights, traditional printmaking, history, architecture and pop culture . The above images are part of a photographic project by S. Morita, who has recorded over a thousand manhole covers around Japan over the years.
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.
G Design Studio designed the branding, packaging, and typography for Kourellas Dairy, a small organic dairy farm with a line of Greek yogurts and cheeses. I love the handwritten typography! They have actually used an existing hand-painted script font, that was exclusively customized for Greek characters by Backpacker.
