We have a certain fondness for Scandinavian design; what’s not to love when functionality and simplicity converge? These characteristics extend through many facets of design, including architecture, furniture, household objects, and, of course, photography and graphic design. So it’s no wonder we’re so taken with this series of photographs by Danish photographer Mikkel Jul Hvilshøj. Commissioned by iconic, high-end Danish housewares brand Eva Solo, Hvilshøj captured these fantastic “visual recipes” in such a way that they could honestly stand on their own based on artistic merit. Hvilshøj’s work elevates marketing photography to another level. We not only love the concept, but it’s executed brilliantly.

London-based illustrator/designer Jing Zhang has mastered marrying technical, isometric forms, with a bit of whimsy. This great series of typographical forms spans the alphabet, and imagines each letter as some sort of building/machine/landscape. Really creative, love it.

We’ve shared our fascination with Legos before (here and here and here), but we’d be remiss to not mention New York-based artist Nathan Sawaya. He has taken the use of Legos as an art medium to a whole new level. With more than 1.5 million colored bricks in his New York art studio at any given time, Sawaya painstakingly transforms these tiny bricks into incredible sculptures. “These works are very personal to me, since they reflect my growth as an artist as I strove to discover my creative identity,” says Sawaya. Be sure to check out his traveling exhibition, The Art of the Brick, currently touring North America and Australia.

At quick glance these look like sketches. But Spanish photographer Pep Ventosa actually merges dozens of photos to transform our awareness of these highly familiar tourist locations, in what he calls “a celebration of our collective memory.” Nominated for the Photography Masters Cup in the International Color Awards, images in this series have an almost dream-like quality, rich with details and hazy layers. Ventosa himself says: “What grows is a unique new narrative space that never actually happened, where the whole has traveled mysteriously further than what the camera documented. Part memory, part imagination. Not unlike the way we see.”
