There are creative niches we don't get to see too much here at Abduzeedo. There are many great artists that craft awesome pieces using felt, and Becky Margraf is one of them. I'm a big sucker for design projects and she came up with "100 Days of Felt", in which she design felt beasts. There are pretty sweet, going from food beasts to pop culture related ones. For the complete project, please visit her personal website! I hope you enjoy these. Cheers! ;) Cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, and onions. Terry Venus the T.V.

Let me present to you the lovely online series "The Hungry Hungry Hamsters", which takes place in a miniature town, with handmade miniature things in it! The Series is about a lovely family obsessed with delicious food, starred by real hamsters! This is a massive project in which were made over 1200 tiny details in over 1900 hours of work, by almost 50 people. Please, visit the project page at Behance for more details and to watch some of the videos there! Also, check another project from the same artists that we've featured here in 2015. I hope you enjoy these! Cheers. ;)
Criatipos' girls did some serious juggling to fill this space of 90 square feet! The project was a temporary store of good deeds by a local mall. Here are the process and the outcome of that challenge, take a look! Via Behance
The goal of a industrial design is to create better products in terms of function and form. The creative process is focused on coming up with the best solution in a holistically way, being rational from the materials and production process to the package and usage. AJORÍ is a great example of the mix of industrial design and arts and crafts, a trend that has been growing a lot. For this post we would love to share with you the Ajorí project. It's a great example of the creative process behind products. It also bring me back good memories from my time in college creating products, but I have to say, my projects were way worse than this one :) Sketches "We observe, peel and cut several bulbs of purple garlic. We were impressed by the elegance of lines that define the form of each piece, the peculiar texture of his skin, his diversity of forms. In front of our eyes appeared a set of containers arranged on a tray, about a stem or handle. Between the diverse offers of design that we wanted to propose, this one was showing with total clarity the functionality that we were looking for: a cruet with form of garlic."

It's always inspiring and motivating to see people following their dreams and doing what they love. Noelia Lozano is an example. She studied journalism where she learned the basics of communication, then she worked with telecommunication and got a degree in telecommunications and computer systems. However her true passion was graphic design, especially tactile and tangible design, as she says: "the most plastique way of graphic design." ...the truth.... it was a job that I liked but I did not enjoyed at all... It was when I decided to turn my life leaving work and going to a world that I had always been attracted by, it was the graphic design world. I love everything related to the applied arts and had the feeling to start a new path in which I could develop my own projects... We selected some examples of the beautiful and creative work of Noelia, make sure to visit her website for more images and information. You can also follow her on Twitter at https://twitter.com/Noe_design ESTE POSTER...¡SE SALE! My composition was about playing with the meaning of the words "¡Se sale!", in spanish that setence means that something is really great and cool and on the other hand it means that something is coming out. Noe (Diseño gráfico) YOROKOBU Beste Bat Composition performed on colored paper carfts for advertising campaign spring / summer 2012 clothing collection for Beste Bat clothing brand, a youthful, fresh and at the same time involved with art in general and music in particular. VisualGrafik ARTEUPARTE Composition made for the competition of the fall cover of a local magazine in my city about art and culture in our area, San Sebastián. The entire composition was made using colored crafts of paper.
Today I wanted to shift to the other side of the design spectrum for a change and show you something a little different: arts & crafts, or more specifically, scrapbooking. There's so much room for creativity in scrapbooks because it's simply for you. You don't have to worry about the needs of the client or audience, you're completely free to experiment to your hearts content. It's an opportunity to let your personality shine through and, not to mention, an excellent way to remember the good times in your life. And we all need a little reminiscing sometimes. Of course not all of us have the patience, time, or money (they can get very pricey!) to make scrapbooks. But maybe if you have a weekend to dedicate to it, you should definitely try it out! Perhaps you're having a baby soon or it's your anniversary with your girlfriend/boyfriend/wife/husband, there's no doubt that they'll be touched with your act and your children will look back in a few years and thank you for keeping beautiful memories of their childhood! Give it a try and feel free to share with us your own crafty creations like the ones you're about to see! You can also drop me a line on twitter or facebook, I'd love to hear from you!
