Beautiful Vector Illustration by FUGSTRATOR

Beautiful Vector Illustration by FUGSTRATOR

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. He also has a series of illustrations on aircrafts and spaceships, all with a bit of a retro mood.  Like the Paper Shuttle Launch project.  Fugoso's process starts always with hand-drawn and then he moves on to rendering, usually on a vector tool like Adobe Illustrator or Autodesk Graphic. Most of the time he gets commissioned to do fan art or about popular icons of the past. He is very proud to say that all of his work starts from drawings, done by hand. Another one of his passions is photography, it helps him to find inspiration because he loves taking photos he mentions on his site.  For more information about Michael visit: Instagram Website Dribbble Behance Illustration

Illustration & Brand Identity: Brand Refresh for Mutual Attraction

Illustration & Brand Identity: Brand Refresh for Mutual Attraction

About a week ago, we've featured the latest work from Radim Malinic with the branding project for Inhere. This week, he is back again but with a project in collaboration with Bristol-based Craig Minchington. It's a refresh that involves brand identity and illustration for Mutual Attraction. A dating agency and matchmaking service that needed some love to share their expertise for everyone in the name of love. Radim and Craig both have similar skills but for this project, Radim was in charge of the creative direction & design. And Craig was behind the 3D modelling, I am digging the overall project especially where you can clearly see the style from both designers. Collaboration work between Radim Malinic, a freelance creative director, graphic designer and speaker from London and with Craig Minchington who is also in the same field but based in Bristol, UK. They have worked together on several projects including the Harnham Salary Guide (2016) featured on ABDZ. Mutual Attraction is a London dating agency and matchmaking service. Mutual Attraction is all about meeting people face to face, in the flesh and stepping away from the screen. Dating in the real world, with real people, looking for real love. Refreshingly simple yet effective.

Whatever if you're a fan or not, or you heard the news feeds or even social media channels. I am personally pretty happy with the overall outcome of the fight between Mayweather and McGregor. I am seeing it as a sports performance instead of what others might think. We are taking a look at this illustration tribute beautifully done by a Paris-based illustrator named Yann Dalon.

Eerie 3D Rendering Work by Stuart Lippincott

Stuart Lippincott has been posting some incredible 3D rendering on his Behance profile.
