Daniel Naude – Sightings of the Sacred Cattle

Daniel Naude is a young South African photographer with a keen eye and a strong sense of composition. In these, his latest works, he investigates sacred cattle from across the world. Not only are these images illuminating in that we do not often see cattle that are so majestic, but they also make us rethink the way we connect with cattle.

Beautiful, beautiful images.

Meryem Meg

Meryem Meg is an illustrator with Algerian / Bulgarian heritage, currently residing in London. Seeing her unique style, inspired by North African geometry is a breath of fresh air. We love the stark forms and intricate detail – great work.

We can’t wait to see more from this young talent!

Coca-Cola Rainbow Nation

To celebrate 20 years of democracy in South Africa, Coca-Cola did what they do best – bring happiness to people.

We don’t want to give it away, but trust us, it’s hard not to smile when you see what they did.

Have a look!


Serpent Cider


This packaging design for Serpent Cider by Hired Guns Creative in Canada was designed to entice beer drinkers to try something new. Nothing wrong with making cider seem a bit more bad ass!

For more of Hired Guns Creative’s work, have a look at their website here. They’ve got some incredible beverage and alcohol packaging.




Major Lazer feat Pharrell – Aerosol Can

We love Pharrell. You love Pharrell. Everyone loves Pharrell.

What we especially love though, is this new video for Major Lazer, featuring Pharell on vocals and none other than Mike Giant providing the lettering.

If you don’t know who Mike Giant is, we suggest you check out his website here, immediately. He is a fine artist, designer and tattooer and his work is both impeccable and incredibly influential.

As an example of both expressive type design and typesetting, this video is a masterclass. It’s also just really fun. Check it out below!


Suntory Whisky – 3D Ice Cubes

This new ad for Suntory Whisky from Japan is just great. Using an amazing machine, they created 3D ice cubes, which highlight the art of Japanese whisky.

Not only does this show the care that goes into making the product, it is also incredibly shareable. It’s just so cool to watch! What a great concept and idea.


Making Pictures – Cape Town

Jeremy Deputat is a photographer and art director who specialises in Hip Hop photography. He was recently in Cape Town when Eminem performed earlier this year and, as photographers do, he took some pictures.

We love the way that seeing your city through someone else’s eyes can make you see things in a totally different way – definitely made us see our city in a new light.
