Typography

Bauhaus Inspired Typography Quad Typeface™

If you follow the blog you will notice our shift, or at least, a bit more focus on the 90s decade, departing from our passion and admiration for the 80s. The reason for that is just some little clues we see everywhere, especially in the movies. A good example will be the new Marvel movie Captain Marvel, which is supposed to take place in the 90s.

paper craft

Cali Lifestyle Paper Craft

Paper craft artwork is probably my favorite style. I believe the reason is simply because I would never be able to create something nice with this technique, at least not as nice, or I'd say amazing as the work that my fellow Brazilian Arthur Régis put together titled Cali Lifestyle.

Typography and Optical Illusion for New York Time For Kids

A couple of days ago I posted an article about some graphic design explorations using lines and other simple elements on a grid, like plus signs or dots. There were tons of really awesome ideas, however all of them were very abstract. One could ask me, how can we apply that to a real project.

Ode to Simplicity in Graphic Design Playing with Lines

I am a fan of simplicity and for this post, I would love to share some artwork that inspired me for some recent personal projects. These are graphic design explorations using simple elements like lines and adding some deformation. It is a super simple effect, you can basically create it in Photoshop using the Displacement Map. The same goes if you want to animate it in After Effects.
