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.

Though sort of a novelty, since most folks who visit this microsite won’t actually travel around Scandinavia, Volvo’s Cross Country Travels site and mobile app are really well designed and fun to navigate. Interactive Art Director Robert Lindström documents the creative process here. Love the badges too… nice uniformity among the variety of illustrations.

For our fellow map geeks out there, this subway map-style diagram of U.S. interstate highways is not only attractive, but quite useful too. What an excellent idea, beautifully executed by Australian designer Cameron Booth. Upon close examination, it’s clear that this is not just an exercise in aesthetics, but it’s a pretty darn accurate map too.

Anyone who knows Barbour Design as a group knows we have a collective love of food. So this fun, mouthwatering project by Chicago design graduate student Kelly Pratt is close to our hearts (and stomachs). Pratt is in the process of preparing an authentic sandwich for each state, then photographing and designing a poster of each. Sounds simple, but Pratt really takes her time with each one, researching popular sandwiches then preparing them with the help of friends and family. Social media now seem to be part of the process, with Pratt soliciting votes for which ‘wich should be next. And for all those foodies out there, prints of each poster are for sale. 12 sandwiches/posters and counting….

Salt Lake City designer/illustrator Valerie Jar developed this well-balanced and thoughtful set of stamp icons for the National Geographic National Parks app. This impressive guide to U.S. National Parks, built by Rally Interactive, is beautifully designed and full of great photography you come to expect from National Geographic. Looking forward to an iPad edition… hope it’s in the works!

We’ve been finding that our clients’ latest obsession is the “wordle” or “tag cloud“. In that same vein, German designer Dirk Schächter painstakingly handset the names of countries worldwide in Helvetica Neue Black Condensed to correspond with their respective land masses. This 2-sided poster is not a product of computer auto-generation, folks… but good old fashioned typography. Pentagram also designed a visually similar series of posters for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, found here.

As many have seen (mostly Justin D. + Ma-Gee), I am really enthused about the new technology (ie. Augmented Reality) being used for ad campaigns. This ads a layer of interactivity, a layer of life, missing from many promotional campaigns. The Footwall is a perfect example of using twitter users to participate by displaying their stats against the ‘footwall’.
