I’m doing some research this week for a new secret project at work involving maps. So as a warning, you might see lot of map inspiration popping up in the near future!
Absolutely love this style for a wall mural – and it happens to be of a coffeeshop in Brooklyn across from work which means I can visit it in person every day! The artist/illustrator is Aaron Meshon and if you haven’t previously seen any of his work, you should get on that! He actually has a children’s book that is going to be released this year.
I’ve been trying to work hand lettering more into my daily habits and have drawn inspiration from a few amazing designers. If you haven’t seen work by Sean McCabe yet, get on it. Seriously amazing and seriously inspirational. This is a collection of work from a bunch of various designers – check out the link to see their dribbble portfolios.
Ran across this awesome work from BMD Design in France. If you haven’t seen their work yet, get on it! Very cool hand lettering and strictly black and white design. They’ve worked on everything from designing wine bottle labels to t-shirts to logos.
Owen Gildersleeve is a designer and illustrator from London. Much of his work deals with very hand-crafted pieces (cut paper, stop motion animation, etc). Really love the dimensionality that using cut paper gives. It’s a great mix between paper, photography and real objects.
I believe I might have already featured this Brunch piece before but it’s just so great! I love all of the different textures and depths that start happening throughout it.
And last but not least, how is this for a book cover?
This work mixed with the work that I showcased yesterday from Dominique Fallamakes me want to definitely test out some new forms of typography and break out of the realm of traditional computer type. There are so many different options and cool things out there that you can do with just ordinary objects.
I was introduced to the work of Dominique Falla the other day and immediately fell in love with her process work. Don’t get me wrong, her finished work is beautiful but what stands out the most is the level of detail and care that goes into each one through the entire process. I love the a few of her projects include videos of the behind the scenes work to really highlight all of the work that goes into it from the sketching phases right on up!
I’ve picked out three of my favorites here below. There are MANY more pieces to look at on Dominique’s website so definitely make sure you go check them out. She seems to be able to experiment with multiple mediums from string and pins to traditional print, gum and even matchsticks.
Gorgeous, right? The rest of her work can be found here. If you’re anything like me, you’re probably going to want to get your hands on some paper and pencils to start sketching some typography right away.
