A children’s book by Jessica Hische

Written and designed by Jessica Hische, this looks like a great kids book with gorgeous lettering. “It’s an uplifting bedtime book about aspiring to do great things tomorrow, reflecting on what you’ve done today, and forgiving yourself for what you haven’t been able to do.”  The book will be out on October 2018.

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.”

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.
