Teaming with ad agency Mother New York, BikeNYC recently launched this stellar outdoor campaign, calling attention to and promoting biking as a better transportation choice. We love the aerial perspective, tongue-in-cheek tone and impeccable Photoshop work.

Animated GIFs may seem a bit passé, considering how motion graphics have evolved over the years, but Boston-based designer and “motioner of graphics”, Matthew DiVito (aka Mr. Div), has made an art out of building short, hallucinatory animations from the ground up. In his own words, DiVito explains to Buzzfeed “I’ve been doing motion graphics for a while now, but about a year ago I got into the habit of doing really short animations as a way to experiment with new styles and techniques. A few months ago, this practice sort of evolved (or devolved?) into making gifs simply because I thought it would be fun to try.”

Vancouver studio Academy created this excellent interface for Jordan/Nike’s “Love of the Game” campaign. We love the origami typography paired with clean photography and layers of origami design throughout that give it some depth. Well done.

You know Brazilian painter/sculptor Henrique Oliveira’s work when you see it… wood-themed installations of twisted roots and large masses that seem to envelop the space in which they are situated. Oliveira started his career as a painter, but his work soon shifted to these site-specific installations crafted from weathered wood. These photos probably don’t even do his work justice.

Boston based design studio Commoner, Inc. is really good at what they do. They specialize in brand identity, custom type and illustration… with an edge. Love their style. Their identity for local restaurant The Lower Depths is particularly, um, awesome. We, as designers, relish in the (sadly rare) encounter of a really great menu design, and this is one of them. Great typography, lots of subtle details, and authentic tone converge to make this really special.

We’ve seen quite a bit of multiple exposure photography lately, but Finnish photographer Christoffer Relander’s work is quite notable. This graphic designer/self-taught photographer has a keen eye for composition, as evidenced by his terrific work.

Wilmington, NC designer Brent Holloman is dedicated to tracking the growth of his daughter’s first year of life. Clearly a labor of love, Holloman finds new and interesting ways to depict his growing child’s silhouette. “One thing I hear all the time… ‘They grow up so fast.’ So I decided to start a project where I can mark the stages of her growth by doing a silhouette of her each week for her first year (or as long as I can keep it going).” What a cool idea… we will certainly be checking back often to see what he comes up with.
