Staff Picks of the Week: May 12, 2017
If there is a theme to our favorite projects this week it's all of the top notch illustration shared by the Coroflot community. Out of the projects that made our top five, pretty much all of them feature illustration. What's especially cool is how they are all done through totally different mediums, from the side of a building to clothing for children. Also of note is that every one of these five projects includes an element of light-hearted fun, which is something we all need in our current world climate.
Spotlighting the hip Ballard neighborhood in Seattle, Whitney's 3D vector illustrations are simple and colorful, and she manages to capture the spirit and vibe of local businesses.
These fabric designs are loaded with imagery that is cute, colorful and playful. Kasia also manages to strike a balance between organized patterns and delightful chaos, which takes skill.
At first glance this project looks like a detailed cross-section of city life, and as an illustration alone it is impressive. When you realize that it was done as a piece of a public art on the side of a school it becomes even more impressive given the sheer scale of such an elaborate piece.
Who said fitness footwear couldn't be fun? These sneaker designs are bursting with vibrant floral and geometric patterns. They would definitely catch eyes on the trail or at the gym.
Oliver contributed the illustrations for this ceramic collection, and his work is perfect on the side of a coffee cup. His drawing is sparse and simple, capturing quaint landscapes and is ideally suited for the white background.
