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.
Who doesn't love gaming? Almost everyone here was raised playing old school games in their Atari, Sega Genesis or Super Nintendo and I must say that it's super awesome to see those games back in other ways.
One of these ways is through design! English designer, Aled Lewis, one of the most beloved artists out there took his shot on the concept of mixing games with photography, and I must say that result is awesome! His take is somewhat minimalistic, but very awesome nevertheless.
Visual identity is much more than stationary and printed materials, it goes beyond the static graphic representation and extends to motion. Nowadays, it is commonplace to see animations that by themselves represent a brand, whether by the style, motion curves or both. MTV is a good example and probably one of the pioneers in playing with video to extend their brand.
