Staff Picks of the Week: March 10, 2017
We don't really have a way to categorize the designs we picked this week by theme or similarities. In fact, each of the five projects we picked is completely different. All of them, however, display an all-encompassing approach to the project in terms of materials, technique, color choice, and advanced level of skill. We chose these five projects in particular because all of them get us excited about design.
Here's an example of beautiful, well-curated and developed retail design. The fixtures blend effortlessly with the product collection and create a warm, rustic environment. Also, the creative use of wood is both gorgeous and inviting.
Done for Kuala Lumpur-based cycling and arts brand Toxic Jungle, Afizi has created a prolific collection of graphics. The well-executed brand art references a diverse spectrum of pop culture, including Slayer, and we all know Slayer rules.
Betsy has designed an appealing and utterly practical shape that displays a balance of physics, athletics, and aesthetics. Her work also elevates the look and feel of a standard piece of sporting equipment.
If only this were real, it would be ideal for hangovers, bright rooms, or those nights where you really need to catch some precious zzzz's. But seriously, Andreas takes a brilliant approach to bed design and presents it in a way that is playful and vibrant.
We have a soft spot for a nice branding suite, and this is certainly the full package. Indrajaya uses fun die-cut on the cards, and the business cards are in a series so they are not all identical. This branding is thoroughly developed throughout all promo materials.
