San Francisco-based creative director Robert Murdock has a outstanding body of work that ranges from interface design to brand and identity to interactive design. His site, Postmammal, the name of which he describes as being “based on the notion that humans are always evolving, and are always looking for what’s next — essentially what’s beyond human”, showcases some of his work. We love his branding work for health and heart rate monitor company Basis. Clean, sophisticated, thoughtful.
New Orleans creative studio IAAH/Iamalwayshungry was commissioned by TBWA/NY to re-envision skincare brand Vichy. Their approach was to depict the V in Vichy in new and refreshing ways. The result is a beautiful collection of typography that we would literally hang on our walls. Awesome
A few days ago we stumbled upon this fun project by Palo Alto-based designers Jeremiah Shaw and Danny Jones. We know very little about it, but seems to be as advertised… a daily exercise in exploration of geometric shapes and form. It has yielded some really cool work, particularly the series of planets.
Mississippi-based designer Jude Landry is über-talented, with a clear affinity for typography. Actually surprised we hadn’t become familiar with his work sooner. He seems to adapt his style to the subject-matter of his work, which makes for a very diverse portfolio. This is just a small sampling of his work, but definitely check out his site. We’re particularly fond of the hand-lettered ampersands… makes our inner type-geek giddy.
French artist Patrice Murciano has perfected a “pop grunge”look that seems to be so prevalent in Photoshop work today. Difference is, he does it all by hand with acrylic paints.. and with amazing results. Murciano has a playful sense of color, style and composition. His primary subjects are female figures, but with this series he also explores celebrity portraiture. Really love his style
Love the minimalist, vintage style of this series of DC characters by Iowa-based illustrator/designer/animator Michael Myers. Can we get a little Marvel love now?
While this awesome series showcases California-based artist Marc Fichou’s superior folding skills, it digs deeper conceptually. In his own words, Fichou explains that “intention here is to create a piece where the image cannot be separated from its referent, thus creating a visual link between past and present.” Essentially, each origami is superimposed over the folded paper that was used to make it.
