Acodomia – Print Campaign

Acodomia is a language school in France that helps people to learn English. This campaign by Les Gaulois does such a great job of the feeling of not being able to express yourself properly. In a multilingual country like South Africa, this is something we have all experienced in one way or another – the feeling that the words you have to express yourself can’t quite live up to the thoughts in your head.

And to top it off, the art direction is just so much fun!

Freddo – Print Campaign

Ice cream is fun. We all know this! When you’ve got an ice cream in your hand, somehow everything seems just a little less stressful. This campaign by Y&R Buenos Aires brings that to life in such a fun way, with some great illustrations and really smart thinking.

With the payoff line: Once upon an ice cream, we see fairy tales we know so well reimagined with happy endings – all because of ice cream.

Check them out below!

De Steeg Brewing – Design

We love some good craft beer package design! It always allows designers to be just a little more daring and out there. This work, by TILT, is no exception. With beautiful illustration, enormous detail and great use of type – this is the very best that craft beer packaging has to offer!

See more below, including some process shots (which we always love).

Bharat Sikka – Photography

Bharat Sikka is an Indian photographer who has turned his lens to the contested area of Kashmir. This series, entitled: Where The Flowers Still Grow brings to life what life is like in Kashmir. Kashmir sits on the border between India, Pakistan and China and has seen a number of armed conflicts over the years. This unease and pain that has been felt by the people is further brought to life in the eyes of Sikka’s subjects – they don’t smile or pose, they stare directly into the camera. The landscape behind them is barren and harsh, but at the same time quite beautiful.

When it comes to capturing a place, a feeling and a people – you are not going to find much photography better than this. This is truly top notch!

Lanaudière – Print Campaign

Having a funeral home as a client probably doesn’t happen very often in the advertising industry, so when one does come along it makes for interesting work! This campaign by Brad, an agency in Montreal, highlights the personalised service you get from the Lanaudière funeral home by pointing out that every death is unique. This is achieved by telling three incredibly unique stories about how people have died in the past, coupled with beautifully illustrated art direction.

Who said funeral home advertising had to be boring or ugly?

Massimo Vitali – Photography

Italian photographer Massimo Vitali has a thing for beaches. He began his career as a photojournalist and since then has branched out into more of his own personal work. In this series, he photographed a number of Italian beaches and all the people there in wide tableaus that capture the essence of the places so well.

Kelsey Wroten – Illustration

This was love at first click! As soon as we saw these we had to share them! Kelsey Wroten is an illustrator originally from Kansas City, who now lives and works in New York.

We love her loose, energetic style and wild forms that she creates using coloured pencils. There is just so much going on in this work and it’s all so exciting!
