Good design is for good clients

I wish I could stamp this on my client’s foreheads. Or on their briefs. Designed by vbg as a new years compliment to their clients, these stamps read “Good design is for good clients”. So simple and so true.

Ink So Good You Could Lick It

I’ve always been drawn to hand drawn designs. If you are too, let me introduce you to Miss Olivia King. I found this little surprise in the pages of The Distillery’s latest promotional magazine, Modern Print. Infographics in chalk lettering? Yes please.

Potraits by Cesar Del Valle

Colombian artist Cesar Del Valle creates these intricate pencil illustrations that interact with our real life world making them 3D art in a way. How interesting that a pencil did all that work – the textures of the people’s clothes, the details, the shading. That, is real art innit.

Prediction Coasters

Coasters just got fun people.

These four coast­ers have pre­dic­tions on them! Each coaster pro­vides for­tunes for a dif­fer­ent aspect of your life: Love, Happiness, Career and Adventure. I love the simple yet very appealing predictions. My favourites are Meet a handsome stranger, You will travel around the world, You will reconnect with an old flame and You will meet someone who makes you swoon. Designed by the good people at Seamless Creative.

Meagan Tidwell

I found these pretty rocks online that led me to Meagan Tidwell, a calligrapher who writes on lots of unusual mediums. My favourite are the rock place card holders. I haven’t seen lettering on anything besides wedding invitations and envelopes.

Twixl Chalk Movie

I came across this amazing video today. With uplifting old school music and the sheer talent of these two artists, it’s a joy to watch. I don’t know how they draw so perfectly without any outlined markings anywhere. The messages are simple, and somehow, as simple as it is, it makes me want to do better. To be better and follow my dreams. Watch the video here. Happy Monday everyone!

Laure de Sagazan

I don’t usually post about fashion but I just had to after seeing these beautiful photographs of Laure de Sagazan’s designs. I’ve seen a few online and was so glad to have stumbled upon her site and discovered even more pretty pictures. The art direction, the clothes, the femininity of it all – it’s all so delicate and lovely.

Humunuku Soap Packaging

Based in New York, Humunuku is run by husband and wife, Alana & Cisco. Their boutique style print studio was founded back in 2008 and specialises in screen printed goods and textiles. Like the prints on these bars of soap which are so elegantly done. It’s really simple but has such impact. Almost like an African tribal print no?

Marjainez

Maria Ines Gul, (or better known as Marjainez in the art fraternity) is an illustration queen. Her work is minimal, clean, classy, modern, cute and simple all rolled into one. And that handwriting of hers needs to become a font I say. A font!
