There's an unique organic beauty in watercolor artworks that really strikes me. You can't really see brush strokes... all you can see is how the water and ink settled down in the end. It's beautiful. Anna Bjørdal, an artist from Norway, paints splendid watercolor pieces you should really see.

Alone Together: A deep look at the loneliness of global cities as it appears during the blue hour
How many people read paper magazine nowadays? I started this post with a question because despite the fact that magazines are becoming obsolete in their paper form, their contribution to design is hard to put on words. Editorial design for me is one of the most inspiring fields of design. It's the pinnacle of design if you will.
We've seen some great gadgets and equipment for designers. There are so many cool stuff out there that we could assemble infinite perfect office spaces every week! So we'll assemble some, and we'd like you to help us. What equipment would the perfect office have?
The kind of project I do enjoy featuring on ABDZ, it's a combination of art direction and photography. We are taking a closer look at the work of Boston-based art director Jeremy Haunschild. The approach is simple but kindly efficient especially when it's mixed with Interior Design. Commissioned by Puma, let's enjoy also the Behind-the-Scenes process for this project.
We're starting the week off with some beautiful blush-toned branding work from Kati Forner Design, a full service creative studio based in sunny Los Angeles. Kati was tasked with a comprehensive brand identity for H.Smith, a luxury, fashion-forward boutique with a discerning clientele.

Interesting mixture of street art and illustration; also for a good cause. Promoting environmental awareness, Brooklyn-based designer Ricardo Gonzalez took part of a festival that took place in Cancun, México (Avenida Uxmal). Giving the ocean a voice, Ricardo and other nine international and local artists came together for creating a positive impact in the perception for our future.
I have seen a lot of incredible car photography posts and also with CGI we don't even know if what we see is the real car or a 3D version of it. Despite all of the styles I've seen it's hard to describe the work that Sarel van Staden has done and shared on his Behance profile and website.
I'm sure all of you have a handful of creative folk you've discovered on Instagram that you've then shared with your inner circle because you love them so much. Mari Andrew happens to be at the top of my personal list and if you don't know her already she's definitely worth inserting into your feed.
It's always great to find an awesome set of package design. Erik Musin, Russian designer based in Saint Petersburg, comes up with beautiful branding design, ranging from logo to packages. He's got a sweet style and here you can see a Milk packing he designed.
Exactly one week ago, we have introduced the Unsplash Awards on Abduzeedo. A celebration made just for you, to recognize the open photography movement. Have you started submitting your photos yet?
We're all lit up with the news that our friends at Keap have just launched a second range of fine fragrance scented candles online at KeapBK.com and at their Canal Street Market store in downtown New York.
If you're enjoying my obsession with cool hotels I hope you dig today's post showcasing some super clever brand identity work for The Dean Hotel, a charming boutique hotel located in Providence, Rhode Island.
I love everything 3D. Back in the early 2000s I spent a fair amount of time trying to learn 3ds Max, then Cinema 4d. It was a good time but I couldn't stand the rendering times, especially to find out that my composition was bad in all senses, modeling, lighting, texture.

We scooped the news of MADE Hotel launching in NYC from our trusty friends over at Coolhunting and couldn't resist sharing this beautiful new zen-like retreat right smack in the heart of the city that doesn't sleep.
Michael Fugoso is a San Diego based designers and illustrator with some incredible illustration work. Fugstrator as he is also known on Instagram, where he posts some of his most recent work. The cool thing about Michael's illustration in my opinion is the style. It brings back some of the skeuomorphic elements but it also blends with some beautiful cutout paper effects.
We've featured the work of MindStudios in collaboration Heartbeat Agency for the Unight App. Now, let's take a closer look at the web design and branding of the Heartbeat Agency. Coming from a background of interaction design, UI/UX, and motion; the folks over Heartbeat Agency has the elegance to work it out by building a simple but engaging digital experience.
Most go to sporting events to watch a game but we here at Abduzeedo can oftentimes get caught up in admiring the actual space itself rather than the athletes.
We have featured Side B projects in the past here on Abduzeedo. We like to diversify but they really got me by creating an beautiful UI Design concept project for Nike SB. If you didn't know, I am a huge skateboarding fan. I used to skateboard when I was younger, I still do from time to time.
Gotta love a huge painted wall. It certainly took a great effort from the artist. Years practicing, evolving, until someone thinks you're good and worthy enough to be responsible for such an canvas. Andrew Hem is an amazing artist that has been painting beautiful illustrations around the world.
