Rodenstock – Print Campaign

What a fun piece of work by Serviceplan Munich! Rodenstock is an optical lens and frame manufacturer in Germany with a great sense of humour. If you’re someone who wears glasses, you know the frustration of having to squint to see something better. It is this observation they used in this campaign with the smart line: See better. Look perfect.

On top of this, the styling art direction and photography are just top notch. Well done all round!

Klaus Kremmerz – Illustration

Klaus Kremmerz is an illustrator from Germany with felt tip pen skills like you’ve never seen before! Creating all of his work by hand, Kremmerz meticulously colours with felt tip pens to create work with both incredible compositions, but a wondrous handmade feel at the same time.

Check out more of his work below! And spare a thought for his hands, because colouring like this is not easy!

Luckies of London – Wild Tape

Calling all the stationery nerds! This one is for all of us! Luckies of London is a gifting sight by designers, which means not only do we get all the cool stuff us designer types need to get our juices flowing, but that the products are really smart and desirable too!

These Wild Tape dispensers use three different African animals as inspiration, with the smart idea for a dispenser we’ve seen in a while! How could you not want to stick up everything you find if you had tape like this in your office?

Britain’s Beer Alliance – Print Campaign

Beer is something that needs very little introduction to adults – either you like it or you don’t and you tend to drink around sporting occasions or just when chilling out with friends. But there is an entire world of beer pairing out there that many people are just not aware of.

This is something that Britain’s Beer Alliance want to change, using this beautifully illustrated and art directed campaign, thanks to the help of La Comunidad London. Each execution indicates a beer style along with an accompanying food to go with it. It can be a bit strange having a fish encouraging you to eat other fish perhaps, but we’re overlooking that because these just look so good!

Have a look at the rest below.

Cheers!

June Canedo – Photography

We love this fashion shoot by June Canedo for Bon Magazine. As an immigrant to the American South, she was tasked by Bon to go back to where she grew up and take photographs of real cowboys (and cowgirls). Based on the truth that not all cowboys were just white men, Canedo cast a number of local Native Americans for her shoot – dressing them up as cowboys and cowgirls for the shoot.

What a refreshing take on a fashion shoot!

Samovar – Packaging

We love seeing design from other markets – looking at the cultural aesthetics and how they inform the way someone chooses to represent something. Here, we’ve got a Russian moonshine called Samovar, designed by Aleksey Poteychuk. There’s something especially exciting about how decorative the Cyrillic alphabet can become, precisely because we can’t understand it. It almost immediately becomes a visual element, rather than text, at least to our eyes.

Either way, this looks like something we’d love to have a bottle of at the Academy. Anyone want to send us one from Russia?

Adult Swim Singles – Website

Every year the Adult Swim channel releases a number of singles in collaboration with up and coming indie bands and musicians. This year is no different, except they come with an awesome accompanying site.

With a number of 3D shapes that get more and more complex as you go further through the ‘desert’ of singles – this site offers a more engaging online music experience than many of the other projects we’ve looked at in the past.

If you love cool graphics, cool music and cool music – look no further!
