We’ve featured work by Alex Gamsu Jenkins before on the blog and now we’re back with more! We loved his satirical, narrative take on illustration earlier this year and now he’s back with more, even more satirical work. Here, he’s shifted into a comics-inspired style, with multiple panes telling admittedly sad and bleak stories about modern life.
What a fun film! This piece by Buck for Tinder takes a cute look at human connection throughout the ages and makes the case that Tinder can help us reconnect with each other romantically without the strictures of decorum, social class and other things that have gotten in the way over the years.
We love the message and we especially love the art direction on this film. The soft, hand-made look is just spot on and the details included in this film are incredible.
Milk is an interesting product to advertise. It’s something almost everyone uses and it can be difficult to differentiate your brand from others. Milk is essentially milk… right?
Unless you can add some meaning and emotion to your brand, in which case then you can start to differentiate and create emotional connections between your brand and the viewers of your advertising. That’s exactly what Dairyland Milk did here, with the help of their agency, Cossette.
They made meaningful dioramas evoking emotional memories inside their packaging, eliciting the kind of feelings that people may have had when consuming the milk in the past. Very smart stuff!
Wow wow wow! This film for the BBC was created using a produced tapestry, making an animated film out of real thread and hours and hours of time with machines doing all the work. What an incredible way to commemorate the soccer world cup!

When you get to design for ice cream, more often than not you get to really have fun and that’s exactly what design duo Craig & Karl did here for Baskin Robbins South Korea. Using their iconic look and feel, they added a huge amount of fun, personality and excitement to the brand.
We especially love the modular packaging, idea where you can create your own characters with ‘heads’ and ‘bodies’. You can see how ice cream cones themselves were the inspiration for this – so incredibly smart!
What a smart way to tell the story of how your product is made! This campaign by Ogilvy Athens for Dove is spot on. Using some really smart illustration, this campaign uses the shape of the products to tell the viewer how they are made and where the inspiration for the products comes from.
South Korean illustrator Miwon Yoon has an eye for detail and a real talent for capturing still-life illustrations of food. After studying fine arts, where she specialised in video making and animation, she turned her attention to illustration. And we must say – she clearly has enormous amounts of talent no matter how she expresses her creativity.
