Shiny new site and solid responsive work in this update from digital agency Tokyo.
Some beautiful graphic work from the Bureau of Hardy Seiler and his re-brand for the Freies Theater in Hannover. The work features a collaboration with Created by Monkeys, Simon Kondermann.
Scottish creative brand agency Contagious specialise in brand communication, environments and experiential design.
Solid update of candy-sweet illustration by Belgrade-based, Serbian illustrator Bratislav Milenkovic.
At FFF we try not to post about the same studio too often – but I was very surprised to see we’ve not featured SEA Design since 2008! Since they’ve just had a new site we thought it was high time we (and you) took another look at their impressive body of work. There’s far more to see than we can show here though, so scoot on over and have a proper look around their new digital home.
I usually glaze over when another army recruitment ad flashes up on my TV screen, but JWT’s latest campaign for the MOD made me look. Perhaps it was the soundtrack, provided by British beatboxer Faith SFX, that initially grabbed my attention. Then again I’m also a sucker for anything shot at a high frame rate.
I’m always envious of the awesome names illustrators sometimes work under… Sneaky Raccoon is the artist name and work of London (& Manchester) based freelance graphic illustrator and designer, Anna Mullin — who specialises in the areas of bespoke illustration with a focus on animals and nature, identity design, typography and unique characters (including custom vinyl toys for both commercial commissions and private collections). Find her sneaking around on twitter and check out her shop.
I first stumbled across Mads when working for The Invisible a few years back. His shots, used for the cover art for their first self entitled release were really beautiful and his work catches the eye time and time again.
Check out the rest of Mads work at his portfolio here, or more, after the jump.
This months cover for the superior PORT magazine is yet another blinder from serial talent, Matt Wiley. Wiley needs no introduction to FormFiftyFive after being featured for other outstanding work previously, but this new cover needed to be shouted about.
I stumbled on this animation by Francesca Cattaneo on her Behance page this morning and it brightened my day. Seems the work was done at Polyester Studio who also happen to have lots more lovely animation work.
This startling series of portraits by Pieter Hugo caught my eye this morning. ‘There’s a Place in Hell for Me and My Friends’ depicts the photographer and his friends from South Africa who’s skin pigment has been digitally manipulated so they appear heavily marked by blemishes and sun damage.
Brent Couchman is an independent graphic designer based in sunny San Francisco, California. Originally hailing from the Lone Star State where he developed branding, packaging & illustration for Fossil, Brent moved to the Bay Area to work with Hatch design.
Delving in to who produced the great new portfolio site for Studio Twice unravelled Playground Paris. The studio name for graphic designer Valentin Adam, which was founded back in 2011. With a wide range of great graphic and illustration work covering both print and digital, we were totally sold. Gratefully, I managed to grab a second out of Adam’s exciting schedule to get to know Playground a little better.
How did Playground begin?
Playground begun with a desire to have fun while working. I’ve been a freelancer for 8 years now, mostly working within web & motion design, and my love for typography & colour became stronger and stronger, but I didn’t have the time to play with it. I stopped everything for 2 months, to experiment & have fun with colour and letters, and I decided to create my own playing field, my own playground.
What are you up to at the moment?
What’s good with Playground is that I can work in various fields. I’m now working on some motion graphics for Le Coq Sportif, an identity design for a theatre company, art direction for a record label, an event identity for a design exhibition by Orange, some websites and maybe a book design, soon… I never have the same day, the same demands, the same clients, as I don’t have a special “style” I can have fun searching the good tone for each demand.
What would be your favourite piece from your current portfolio, what are you most proud of?
It’s quite hard, as I love to change as much as possible my work. I would say I like some works in different fields, for example Iconoclast Image’s website, the photos I did for Sosh’s tumblr or maybe the still at-work identity for PlusPlus, but I think Playground is still missing one huge project, which I can decline over identity, print design, posters, web… Read more
