Chiara Zonca – Photography

Chiara Zonca is a London-based photographer who specialises in dreamy landscapes. She captures these seemingly harsh areas and, by applying her lens makes them so inviting. We love how by applying the right way of looking at something, it can be made so different – that’s the power of photography!

Wouldn’t one of these look lovely on the wall?

You can visit Zonca’s site here.

 

Cinema du Parc – Posters

These posters by Les Evades Montreal are so good!

Cinema du Parc is an independent cinema that focuses on showing the best of the best – specialising in foreign and classic films. These posters, which reimagine classic movie posters with a modern, more design-forward twist are such a great way to get people excited about what’s showing – how could you not want to book a ticket?

Patagonia – The Blue Heart of Europe

Patagonia is a brand known for taking responsibility. They’ve made doing good and giving back a part of the brand from the very beginning. Here, we’re sharing one of their latest projects: The Blue Heart of Europe – a website which raises awareness about Europe’s threatened rivers and gives people something to rally behind and support. We love the work done by Upperquad on this!

Not only is this a great site to interact with and use, it’s a really interesting way that Patagonia is both doing good and representing itself as a brand. On every page, you see the Patagonia logo, but instead of throwing it in your face or trying to shove product down your threat, it doesn’t try too hard. And this is what makes Patagonia such a beloved brand throughout the world.

Good work for a good cause – what could be better?

National Children’s Hospital – Disney X-Rays

There’s nothing better than advertising and branding for a good cause! This work by BBDO Dublin was made for the National Children’s Hospital in Ireland with a very specific cause – to help scared kids feel better about being X-rayed.  To do so, they used X-rays of the main characters from Toy Story and put up these posters around the hospital, reminding children that it would be okay.

We love it!

Jee-ook Choi – Illustration

Jee-ook Choi is a Korean illustrator with a simple, considered style we just love. And despite the rigours of her style, there is a strong thread of humanness and playfulness inside all of her work. We especially love her illustrations of balls bouncing through her compositions, they’re so much fun and capture so much movement with so little.

Do give her a follow on Tumblr over here.

Vicki King – Photography

Vicki King is a London-based photographer who focuses mainly on fashion photography. What we especially love about her work though, is her conscious decision to create work which exists inside a ‘timeless dreamscape’. This gives her work a recognisable feeling, regardless of the subject matter – the mark of a true artist!

You can see more of her beautiful work on her website here.
