There’s something about photography of people on beaches we love. It’s something that, admittedly, we see quite a lot of – but it’s always great when it’s done well. This work from Spanish photographer Yosigo is, of course, done very well. His considered compositions (no mean feat when you can’t pose models) and choice of cropping is just perfect. Who wouldn’t want one of these images in their life?
You can see more of Yosigo’s work on his website here.
Marinel Sheu is an illustrator originally from Albania who know lives and works in Dublin, Ireland. We’re sharing his work today because, well, we think it’s pretty special! The way he creates filmic scenes, with an inbuilt narrative, is just incredible. And then when you add in how he treats light in his illustrations, you get something very special.
Amazing work from an amazing illustrator!
You can see more of his work on his Instagram page here.
Sugarcane juice is a very specific item. Creating packaging for it that really stands out is no easy task. The good news: Prompt Design in Thailand was up the challenge. They designed a plastic can / bottle with a shape and design very reminiscent of sugarcane. And thanks to the product design, they’re stackable, which makes them look even more like sugarcane, growing from the ground.
A special piece of work by B&B Studio. We love the way they created a simple, type-driven identity for Raw Halo chocolate and how that has been expanded into other collateral This is the mark of quality design – it can live across media and applications and still be appealing and recognisable.
A bit of nautical-inspired design never hurt anyone! This work by Enpedra Estudio for Pridem’s London Dry Gin takes inspiration from classic British naval outfits and reimagines them in gin bottle form. This is a perfect, given the history of gin and where it comes from. What a fun idea!
For Google’s Wonderful Weekends Chicago, they created this interactive gumball machine, which allows you to decide what things you’d like to do and it walks you through what Google services you can use to make it happen.
This is such a great example of how something like a ‘tutorial’, which can be as dry and as boring as you’d like it to be, can be made fun and exciting through the use of some smart thinking and creativity. More like this please!
