Staff Picks of the Week: March 24, 2017
This week the Coroflot team took comfort in a nice variety of terrific projects. From product design to illustration and typography, each of the five projects we picked demonstrates a considerable skill set and mastery on the part of the designer. In other words, yet another reminder of how talented the Coroflot community is.
The dehumidifier gets the Nest treatment! Ryan presents us with a very thorough process here in order to provide us with all of the details and market info to understand what makes this product useful and to whom. The result of this collaborative project is a product that is attractive to the eye and fulfills a regular function.
We love the beautiful use of pastel colors in this editorial illustration done for Sole Collector Magazine. The drawings are simple yet nicely detailed in the places that matter, which in this case are the sneakers. It also portrays some of basketball's most renowned players in a way that feels candid, playful, and artistic.
Sometimes a kitty deserves a throne, and The Cone seems to be just that. Not only does it live up to its name, but The Cone also serves a dual purpose to keep your feline feeling frisky. The inside is a cozy napping spot and the outside is a scratching post...awesome! Made of 100% natural sisal, this design is sure to be a hit when it launches on Kickstarter soon.
We can't speak for the quality of the wine, but Diane's use of typography and color is immediately striking. Quixote Winery is the only building in the Americas designed by the Austrian artist and architect Hundertwasser. He also design the original logo for the winery, and Diane does an excellent job of capturing his style. Cheers!
Brook's illustrations are vibrant and possess a retro comic kind of look. The initial sketches are still clean and give us some valuable insight to the creative process. One of the things we also love is the way Brook demonstrates both old and new illustration techniques along with clean, attractive colors.
