We all had a long week of work, school and maybe vacation (some of us) and after spending some time relaxing with family, friends; we'll mostly spend be ready to tackle a new week. Before you do, it's time for the Weekly Roundup where we curated our some of the interesting things that happened on the Web either it is news, a new tool to try, a cool video and some sites inspiration that caught on attention. We'll also include some Abduzeedo articles from the past week just in case that you've missed them. Time to sit back, see what you've missed and gear up for the next one.

While most of our team and part of North of America is celebrating a holiday today, I am currently working on a branding/logotype project for a client. Scouting for inspiration on Behance, I stumbled across the work from Wete Studio where they shared their latest of their personal and commercial work. I thought it would be great to share it here on ABDZ, hope you like it!
Let's take a look at this series where digital art and retouching goes mixing together for a wonderful result. Some might find it a little offensive but the series title makes it quite clear what is it about. Aside from the beautiful composition, lighting, colours and the subject itself. I just love how the project description is short and limited so it leaves the full judgment to ourselves. What do you think?
Papercut artworks are really something. People might think it's a child's thing, but there are artists that take it to state-of-the-art level, such as John Ed De Vera, a multidisciplinary designer, with a penchant for lettering, paper-cutting, and experimenting with different and new media.
A project where I feel that industrial design shines for its right purposes and cause. We are checking out this design by Seoul-based designer HaYoung Lee for a foldable desk made of cardboard paper. This effort came up while HaYoung has been traveling to India and noticed some kids taking notes and studying without a proper desk and a chair. So he made a design that was cheap to make, easy to assemble and transportable. Check it out!
New York based designer Andrés Moncayo has published a fantastic project of painted over NES games which consists of a repainting of screenshots from the mythic NES gaming console. He painted over some true classics such as Double Dragon II, Contra II and more!
An Interaction Design and Art Direction for Refugee Nation by Justin Au. I don't know if you guys remember at the last Olympics, we've witnessed a team of refugee athletes compete in the games. A first in the history and since they had no official "home" to call their own, no anthem and no flag. A flag of the "Refugee Nation," created by Syrian refugee was orange and black, to represent the life vests the athletes wore as they set off in boats for a better life. It's quite a beautiful story, I would definitely the full project via his Behance.
HYPE Digital Agency created a very solid brand identity project for Build Top Lux, a signature real estate agency. They also shared a bit of their creative process and how they ended up choosing the final logo as well as the creation of collaterals. For the logo they chose the concept that references the idea of opening doors. Below you can see a bit more about it.
