Elegant Cloth — 3D Art by Vinicius Araújo

I think most of us have seen the release of the new Windows 11, whatever you like it or not. I think it was a bold release in terms of visuals and branding. I also think we all noticed that 'elegant cloth' texture, this is why this personal recreation by Vinicius Araújo caught my eye.

LEGO x Adidas Originals Superstar Set

We are following the sublime work from Leta Sobierajskii who is an artist based in Brooklyn, NY, USA. For the launch of the LEGO x Adidas Originals Superstar Set, she was approached to create a remix of this iconic design. First of all, what an honor to think about working on such an iconic design that was originally created in the 1960s.

Dribbble Spotlight — Illustrations by Isaac LeFever

It's been quite a while since I last spent time looking for inspiration on Dribbble. Not to brag but things are most or less the same which is unfortunate, to be honest. But on the good side, I stumbled across the work of Isaac LeFever, which by the way is a badass name to start with.

Designer Spotlight — Guillaume Azadian

It's been a little while since our last 'Spotlight' series and it's always rewarding to feature designers, leaders who are excelling in what they do but usually are just part of the behind-the-scenes of a major brand overhaul or product releases. It's great to share their work and learn more about their background, passion, and more.

Surreal Quarantine Photo Manipulations

Let's be clear. I really don't miss the days of home quarantine from the past year. I did appreciate the time spent with the loved ones but glad we all get to live some kind of a 'normal' summertime. With that being said, it's always rewarding to see how others had to cope with this pandemic and what needed to be done to actually stay sane.

Along those lines, I wanted to share the work of the Darling Visual Communications which is a design consultancy firm that specializes in branding, print, typography, and web.
