Architect and artist, FREDRICO BABINA has creatively portrayed iconic architecture shown in film and has titled the vintage poster series, ARCHICINE. He captures each of these architecture pieces as a character of their own, recreating famous cinematic history in an illustrative and clever way.

I am admiring this branding system designed by FIREBELLY DESIGN. DOLLOP COFFEE & TEA wanted to add additional locations in Chicago and asked Firebelly Design to create a cohesive and updated look for their new shop. They were involved in the branding as well as the interior decor, signage, and menu systems - designed to be reminiscent of a classic shipping receipt. Not to mention, I want to hang out there!

Check out this amazing artist, CJ HENDRY and her photorealistic pen drawings. I couldn't believe it at first. Her work resembles the paintings of Chuck Close, who is one of my favorite artists. To get the object to how she wants it, she first spray paints the objects all white and then takes a photo in which she then maps out to scale and recreates on . She layers fine pen strokes on top of one another which create several layers of shadows and strokes. I was so inspired, I went to the art store last night and bought supplies to create my own pen drawings!

I just had to share these "lovely little lies", designed by graphic designer LAUREN HOM. I'm such a fan of illustrative text and only wish I could be good at it! I learned a lot about Lauren's process as to how she goes from a hand-drawn type to a polished design from this TUTORIAL.
Her PORTFOLIO is super rad too!

Some would consider me to not be very enthusiastic for playing board games. HOWEVER, I do appreciate a nice package design. ANDREW CLIFFORD CAPENER has done just that with revamping the traditional SCRABBLE BOARD GAME. The game comes with a beautiful walnut storage case and tiles. The tiles display various typefaces and sit upon classy metal tile racks. His purpose of this project was to revive an old, but loved game and to excite people about typography! I'll play this game any day-and most likely let you win! ;-)
