Going through history is such a beautiful learning experience and also very fascinating. We've found some old black and white photos going through some bequtiful treatment, all of them are done by artists that use a mix of historical reference and of course some really good judgement for the colours.
Cool Icon Designs
Well-crafted design is all about attention to details and simplicity. A successful brand identity is one that employs both a simple yet detailed approach that still highlights the most iconic characteristics. Heydays illustrates this splendidly with the work for Mellbye. The geometric forms translate really well into a clean and simple yet eye-catching logo for an architecture studio. Mellbye is a well-known architect studio in Norway, founded in 1954.
You probably came accross the work of Chris Messina with certainty, Chris previously worked at Google in developer relations and as a UX designer at Google+. He is also known as the Godfather of the #hashtag and currently is based in San Francisco, USA. He is not the actor.
We are fan of vector illustrations, especially because of the clean lines and sometimes geometric shapes. Lately we've been noticing more and more designers experimenting with vectors mixed with textures. The cool thing about this is that it gives an incredible style to the illustrations, and when you add to that some super creative ideas you will probably have something similar to the work of Justin Mezzell. I am now a huge fan of Justin, his work is nothing less than amazing. It brings me back some sort of this retro/futuristic vibe.
