If we are looking ideas for good ads or design everywhere, why not looking at them while drinking? This comment has absolutely nothing to with this so let’s keep going. The Brazilian designer Fabio Rex made this simple but cool illustrations to show an infography about the perfect drinks. I love all the icons he use to describe the products on the drinks. Also the palette of colors and the transparencies on some of the elements. Everything look very fresh, formal but fun at the same time. Cheers.

He made them. They make him.

 

 

This illustration of Steve Jobs was created by Charis Tsevis from  Tsevis Visual Design. I have seen so many tricks in illustrations like this one where they just overlay a picture over other thousands of small ones, but in this case it really impress me to see the detail of how was this mas made. Take a look.

This corporate image created by Creative United is a good example of how an idea becomes a logo. I like how the took out the tiger out of the image just by using circles. Then selection of colors is work good to create a good contrast. They kept it simple, strong and clean and I think that’s really important when dealing with corporate image. I also liked the watermark of the lion in a darker gray color. Also the wallpaper pattern for some of the envelopes and folders.

There’s a tendency to illustrate people and objects with typefaces. But what about to do the opposite? The people from “Serial cut” did this amazing job where personalized typefaces where created to fit different products and objects. What called my attention the most is how well produced this can be that looking it form far you identify intermediately the product and by going closer the words remain being readable. Very good job.

Serial Cut is a Madrid based studio, established in 1999 by Sergio del Puerto, working on a wide variety of worldwide projects, but focussing mainly on Art Direction.

New & Inspiring Artworks from João OliveiraNew & Inspiring Artworks from João OliveiraNew & Inspiring Artworks from João Oliveira

Representing in a very good way to his country, the Brazilian João Oliveira takes a smile out of my face with his incredible illustrations and his geometric 3D typefaces. What I love the most about the typeface is its possibilities to play with the angles and take stripes out of it as the example shows. It can be very useful for some posters and also logos that I might do in the future.

Awesome Typography Works

 

 

Andre Beato is the responsible for this great posters. You just need to take a look of his portfolio to understand that this guy know what he is doing. In this pieces he mixes typography with other illustrations and also transform those letters to give it an effect that fits with the concept. It looks like he is branding every word he writes and that’s something really impressive to see.

Low speed. Amazing images.

One of my favourite passions is photography and I strongly believe that you should make the most similar final piece in the set and apply almost nothing on post production. Being said that let’s see Janne Parviainen’s pictures. Even when this is a technique that everybody is using today, this photographer takes it to a whole new level with clean, colored an excellent produced pictures.

I did this once and is kind of like drawing in the air, is not easy at all but with discipline and patience everything can me done.
