This is an editorial design by New Zealand-based Creative Director Tim Donaldson, it's a design of cookbook entitled: Cazador. The print material reminds me of an old cookbook which brings a great load of nostalgia. Once inside the book you are introduced to a few images which again keeps that vintage concept but you will notice the big beautiful fonts for the "chapters" and also use for a two-spread designated for quotes. Simple, lovely and quite efficient.

Mixing different mediums from sketching, typography, images and graphic design; this book is certainty a gem.
Nothing to start off your Weekend with an editorial project made by a graphic design student. The project is called: Xplore Newsletter and it has been designed by Parmuditho Wahyudhana. Remove the fact that I loved his choice of subject which was the city of Tokyo but I enjoyed his treatment on the layout with different shapes into the grid to make everything messy and unique at the same time. I also enjoyed his direction on the pictures with a psychedelic approach that gives you an impression of Japan from the 60s, beautiful work Parmuditho!
I am one of those believers that believe that design can change the world by its purpose and its reasons. We do what we do for what we believe is worth fighting. We are able to create things that can drag emotions, thinking and more. Let’s take a closer at this editorial design by Mother Design for Save the Children. As I quote: “..creating an opportunity to engage with the people behind them”.
The project Memória Audiovisual Mineira is a research project focused to recover and preserve the precious cinematographic work done in Minas Gerais, Brazil. Each issue will feature a character that was important in the development of this movie culture. They will explore their work, peculiarities and career. The brand work that Beto Nunes created illustrates that elegantly well. The symbol create is such a smart exploration of the initials MAM, using simple lines Beto achieve an incredible result.

Playing with our imagination and how we can fool our brain with simple play of light, shadow and depth is one of the things that fascinates the most when it comes to visual design and graphic design.
