MODERN ATLANTA ///

Modern Atlanta kicked off this evening and looks like it will be a great few days, celebrating design in the city as well as some greatness from outside the A. Branded by the good folks over at Armchair Media, MA will be hosting events profiling work from some of the top architects in Atlanta as...

ATELIER CARVALHO BERNAU ///

I don’t even know how to begin describing this Netherlands-based studio. Atelier Carvalho Bernau specializes in highly functional and painstakingly crafted design work. Their work is primarily print-based and typographic, in fact they do a lot custom typeface design. I love how their site captures the gorgeous letterforms they’ve created alongside photos of high-end book...

DAN STILES ///

Portland is the new Brooklyn, or something like that. I say this because I can’t stop coming across a ridiculous amount of talented work from designers and artists based there. Dan Stiles is one more to add to the list. Amazing posters? Check. Amazing illustration work? Check. Silkscreened goodness? Check. Dan’s got a lot more...

PORTIA WELLS ///

Portia Wells‘ work has always amazed me. Her design projects also serve as a platform for artistic ideation and social commentary about the objects we consume and acquire. I’m always surprised at how each time I look at a particular work I come across a new and unexpected thought behind it.

THE CAMPANA BROTHERS///

Even though both of my parents are from the Puerto Rico I have to admit I know very little (in fact, almost nothing) about designers from the Caribbean and Central/South America. Over the last year or so this has all changed, in large part to my wonderful friend Alberto Rigau, who has introduced me to...

ANDREW HOLDER ///

Andrew Holder (Pasadena, CA), a graduate of Art Center College of Design, has a portfolio filled with some really wonderful illustration work. I especially love these trophy deer heads, shown above.

STUDIO VON BIRKEN ///

All I can say is I want to work for SvB soooooo bad. Ridiculous. Amazing, Beautiful. They make it look so easy.

COSAS MINIMA ///

Cosas Minima is the work of illustrator and design Blanca Gomez, from Madrid, Spain. I think the thing I love most about Blanca’s work is the fun and carefree nature of some of the characters she illustrates. There is a beautiful sense of balance and minimalism to her work as well.
