Let's talk politics! This unusual book designed by Gothenburg-based studio Ahremark is a critique on the Dublin Regulation. You wouldn't expect the publication to be discussing such a serious topic by its minimalistic design, ultra stylish layout and pink paper!
'A New Type of Imprint' is a beautifully designed journal on Nordic living. Their current issue is dedicated to Finland in all its glory. It features the work from artists Antti Kalevi, Osma Harvilahti and Satu Maaranen. Also, how good is that cover? Shout out to Helsinki-based Agency Leroy for the design!
Really loving the work by graphic designer Daiana Ruiz. Using a very minimalistic style and combining it with bright colors and random subjects, Ruiz creates interesting/refreshing images. Also, I'm not gonna lie, the greyhounds caught my attention. Check out her Tumblr page for more good stuff.
Spanish-based photographer and graphic designer Rocio Montoya creates interesting surreal collages that focuses on the human body in close relation to nature. Collecting material from magazines, vintage botanical illustrations and old family postcards, Montoya creates a poetic atmosphere.
Loving this collaboration between photographer Alexandra von Fuerst and fashion designer Sonja Fabritius. This is the first part of a long term study focusing on colors, patterns and materials. The color blue surrounds everything and cancels the meaning of space and time. You can't really go wrong with blue now can you? Bubblin!
Everyone knows I am a sucker for black and white graphics. Especially when you combine it with abstract, doodle like illustrations. No wonder I am loving this graphic calendar by Yulya Potnik.
Paulo Brandao Melo made an interesting editorial spread for Stories Collective, an online fashion platform. He combined his talents for art directing and graphic design to create these images that showcases how the two disciplines work perfectly together.
Lena Emery is a graphic / print designer working for some major brands such as COS and Helmut Lang. Her work focusses on raw and pure lines without too many distractions. Her sense of style and color is simply amazing.
I love the branding for Beige Personal Goods by Josep Puy. These plant-based hygiene products are based on the natural aromas of trees (and other environmental elements). The line is called 'organic textures' and showcases a minimalistic yet eco-friendly design.
I came across this book from a Dutch artist that called himself A. Boogert. In 1963 he made a publication on the use of color. Boogert explained how one color affects another when placing them next to eachother. (Pantone colors all the way.) You can view the 800-paged book here.
San Diego-based design studio Wedge & Lever redesigned Transworld Surf Magazine. Leaving the sport roots behind and going for a more arty look, by focusing on photographic driven content. Get your surf on.
I love a good infographic every once and a while. Tsilli Pines made a series on how money (and numbers) dominate our lives. They present something once imaginary and also very real. The infographics are dominated by black and red, the colors of accounting. Content aside, the results are interesting and beautiful compositions.
I am seriously loving these illustrations by Portland-based designer Ryan Berkley. I have a weak spot for art that showcases animals in human clothing. For a more traditional interpretation, have a look at Thierry Poncelet and his amazing paintings.
Check out this great graphic designer / art director from Austria, who makes some amazing visual (mostly food related) imagery. Her project for Goodforks, a company that promotes a new sustainable food system, really showcases her talent as an artist. Take a look at her Behance account for more good stuff.
