NIKE PAPER BATTLEFIELD ///

I love this campaign for Nike that McCann Hong Kong did. It’s amazing how such a simple technique of monotone images just being overprinted can create such an exciting and dynamic illustration.

JAVIER JAEN ///

I cannot read Javier’s posts since I’m limited to english-only, but that’s alright…the images are simplistic and speak enough on their own. Found via Robert Peters

Joel Evey is a designer/art director who does the “floaty/surrealist” thing quite beautifully. There’s some amazing typography and line work in his portfolio.

SKIN ///

The image above is by no means representative of all the work produced by the fabulous studio Skin in Norway. However, I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a studio with a potato packaging project in their portfolio, I just had to post it. Check them out, they have great work.
