/ What's new in the design digital culture

(He)Art by inaluxe

At inaluxe (tandem made of Kristina Sostarko and Jason Odd) learning never stops since as artists running their own business – is an ever changing thing!

They freelance and work on independent design and writing gigs.

Colorful abstractions to adorn walls.

Authentic Hyperkit

Hyperkit is a design studio and the collaboration between husband-and-wife Tim Balaam and Kate Sclater.

Their main preoccupation is ‘authencity’ and this seems to be conveyed in a simple manner – no extravaganza – communicating their ideas that empower every day life.

Each portfolio pieces renders exactly that.

Steph says hello

Steph Says Hello is the portfolio of Stephanie Baxter, a freelance illustrator living & working in Leeds, West Yorkshire.

Her hand-lettering projects are a joyous overload of pen (digital or not), pencils, chalk and inky goodness with loads of curlicues and capitalized letters.

Typography applied over edibles?

Freshly.

In Question

Rilke is an independent creative studio based in North West London. Established in 2009 by David Davidopoulos and Kate Smith, Rilke set out with a clear mandate: ‘We want to produce work that matters. One fundamental step: we question.’

This is a sweet website – using a one-page storyboard that includes tangible visuals and quirky design elements.

IR = Loves you

Her portfolio is extensive and expansive. The breadth of her creativity is constantly paired to remarkable conceptual ideas with a thang of ubiquity and sweetness – in any and all of the branding suites – packaging what-not she enterprises.

There you go – Snap! What a tagline: A sweety branding studio. That loves you.

No wonder there is so much ‘charmingness’ in her work. Passion. Color. Experience x repeat ad infinitum = Isabela Rodrigues / Porto Alegre, Brazil

Anastasia K.

That flowery interface blew me away. Today UI expectation what not – is keen to favor flat design (which I love since ND has been flat – forever in web years) which shows just about ‘nothing’ as visual expression except for completed projects. All that ok.. but..

Her little place on the web is like a beautiful garden in the shade – waiting to bloom. Altho a work in progress – her portfolio shows one project but a superb one. I can’t wait to see how her career evolves and new projects she gets involved in.
_______

Her name is Anastasia Kolesnikova. She is a twenty two years old designer based in Krasnodar, Russia.

365 Project

Love the self-assignment 365 Project by Jennet with a communicative instinct that is fiercely visual. She believes that design is the ultimate platform for good ideas to become irresistible ones. Well-said girl!

What are you practicing now? Have you a personal project? You should.

by V.K.Rees

Some of my favorite shots by V.K.Rees – an obvious foodie. She is a Brooklyn based photographer focusing on food, still life, and lifestyle.

The dark – almost black ones – are sumptuously well staged and lighted.

SFi by Emilia Forstreuter

Creative Director + Founder
by Emilia Forstreuter

When a project doesn’t seem exciting at the first sight I find a way so it does excite me. The feeling of surprising others (and myself) really drives me.

SFi is a self-curation experiment coupled with a minimalist interview by people in the design industry I admire.

Unerdwear?!

Unerdwear is ‘softwear for nerds’ brought to you buy a bunch of talented nerd approved powagirrrls – who started their experimental designer collective in Krakow, PO.

Can’t resist quoting: ‘Wat?! Srsly – designer boxers with geeky patterns. We call them ‘nerdies’.. And this: We like to think of them as ‘developer tools’ or ‘clean tech’. It’s very much WYSIWYG.’

(lol)
