Illustrations with a retro look

Cristiana Couceiro is an illustrator and designer, living in Lisbon, Portugal. I love her retro style that mixes collage using newspaper, mainly vintage photos and pieces of paper, together with strong colors and clean layout. Her work has been published by The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Washington Post and Vanity Fair.

Social Decay

I love this project called Social Decay by Romanian digital artist Andrei Lacatusu. Lacatusu imagines what it would look like if big social media companies had real, but decaying, storefronts in a post-social media world ! The attention in the detail is really impressive.

36days Electronics alphabet

Brazilian digital designer Vinicius Araújo created a different letter of the alphabet for his project 36days Electronics. He only used Helvetica typeface and all letters were inspired by specific electronic items and brands, like a retro Apple computer, a Canon camera, a Dell monitor, an Epson printer, an LG air conditioner, a retro Motorola mobile etc. The execution and attention in the detail is amazing and Araújo has even designed a small gif animation for some of the letters .

This is a collection of shared photographs that started as a thread in Reddit website.  Users from all over the world share their real-life pics of hotels, buildings, or sceneries that seem to be taken …out of a Wes Anderson movie!  These are images for the fans of the director’s visual style: perfectly colorful, retro and stylized!

Great logo for a sophisticated cocktail bar

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.

A new book from House Industries

Known for its eclectic font collections, House Industries has been around the design world for more than 25 years. Apart from the beautiful mid-century style fonts, they have also designed everything from books, home decor, toys, stationery, t-shirts and apparel for women and men. They are now releasing a new book titled The Process is the Inspiration on May 30.

In their words: “With topics ranging from fonts and fashion to ceramics and space technology, this beautifully-useful volume offers a personal perspective on the origin of ideas for creative people in any field. Presented in the honest, authentic, and often irreverent style that you’ve come to expect from House Industries, The Process is the Inspiration is a collection of helpful lessons, stories and case studies that demonstrate how you can transform obsessive curiosity into personally satisfying and successful work … Most importantly, this book shows that there’s no sense in waiting for inspiration because inspiration is already waiting for you.”
