Currents – Website

This multimedia experience, created by Active Theory, tells the story of ocean currents in a beautiful, immersive way. We absolutely love it!

You can visit the site here.


Leon Sans – Website

Leon Sans is a typeface made from code, created by designer Jongmin Kim. To make people aware of it, he created a beautiful website that animates the typeface in a number of incredible ways. If you’re a typography nerd (like we are) then this is exactly what you’re looking for.

You can see the website for the typeface here.

And you can visit Jongmin Kim’s personal site here.

Peter Dench – Photography

English photographer Peter Dench has an eye for the perfect image. This is brought to the fore in this series entitled: The English Summer Season that captures English people partying, drinking and doing their thing in summer. The specific interplay of social class and behaviour is just so interesting to see here, as Dench’s camera captures people acting decidedly ‘unposh’ at incredibly posh events!

Social-Bee – Print Campaign

Smart thinking with a conscience! This campaign by Jung von Matt for Social-Bee encourages people to think differently about refugees and to give them a chance when it comes to hiring for jobs. We love how they found real stories of incredibly famous people who also happened to be refugees, to remind us all that everyone has potential and value!
