Check out these walls designed by Belgium based design studio Soon. Pretty rad right? Kind of design I want on my walls. From the website: When Arseus Medical finished their brand new Office building, they asked us to decorate more then 200m2 meters of wall. The building had 4 floors and every floor got a [...]

Run by the artist community, Beaver Brook, Cabin Porn is exactly what you might expect – a website devoted to inspiration for your “quiet place somewhere.” Users can submit a photo of their cabin along with a short blurb of what makes it awesome, and that’s about that. See more [...]

Contructive Criticism

We called it constructive criticism in art school, but this is basically how it went down if you tacked a piece of crap on the wall. Probably why so many champs hung up their gloves before graduation. Here’s to all of us who “rode the bullet.”

Juan Carlos Pagan

So I was perusing through some old bookmarks this morning — just taking a glance at some of the links my past self might have thought my future self would like to reference again — when I happened to cross this fairly recognizable branding project. So now I know who did this. See more work [...]

Coverjunkie

I’m always on the lookout for new sources of inspiration, for this Try This as well as design projects. I’m probably late to the game, as usual, but Coverjunkie is just the kind of inspirational site I love finding. It’s about exactly what you might expect – magazine covers – and has already received endorsements [...]

Live Stock

Brand consultancy Greenspace worked with Friends of the Earth to design the Live Stock logotype and a number of staging concepts to bring the event to life.

Get London Reading

Throughout almost all of his series of pictures, there also appears a red-headed muse – a girlfriend I assume – that accompanies him on his photo-finding adventures. I went through his most recent group [...]

Ineo Designlab

I can’t tell you much about this project other than it’s an identity for a wine label and it was designed by company out of Denmark. How’s that for investigative journalism? Something tells me that the logo was inspired by either the mountains or a loaf of bread. Either way, the circular icon made out [...]
