Ben Ali Souheil shared a beautiful poster design project on his Behance profile. The work was done for the Red Bull Music Academy BASS CAMP, a branded affair that rounds up an ensemble of regional artists over three days of collaborative creativity. Dubai hosted its first BASS CAMP in 2013 at Bastakiya, a traditional backdrop to the urban metropolis. The location celebrated the fusion of medieval and modern, serving as inspiration for this design project.
Firman Suci Ananda and Zulfan Iskandar are designers from Indonesia and they shared this very inspiring graphics and editorial design post on their Behance profile. It is titled "Typoforma - Issue No.1" and as you can see by its name, the focus is pretty much on typography and composition. You might ask me, this looks like any other editorial post. You are right, however, this post, in particular, illustrates quite well the direction I believe the web is going to.
Let's kick it off with an experimental poster design project entitled: Zero Posters Vol. 1. Designed by Alaa Tameem and tariq yosef shishani, they are following their path of Unkown territories but so awesome at the same time. So it's particularly cool to look at and let's not get into his graphic design work. It's quite breathtaking, check it out, very happy about this feature!
We live in a digital world with everyone glued to their smartphones at every turn but the analog world is still very important, especially when it comes to promoting events and strengthening your brand through carefully crafted printed materials. This could range from the traditional collateral like business cards, letterheads, envelopes to more graphical pieces. A good example is flyers. I am addicted to flyers and even went through a phase of collecting them. Every time I would go to a cool shop I’d undoubtedly spot a handful of flyers promoting events and parties.
There is a beauty to see designs translated in various languages and again it's even more inspiring to see it coming from different backgrounds from all over the World. Let's take a look at the work of 劉家芸 liujiayun who is a graphic designer & illustrator based in Taipei City, Taiwan. First of all, I am so attracted by the art direction with colours and concepts for SCHEMA｜食在有藝Arc&Art. It's a stunning design and you should definitely check out her Behance.
Silvino González Morales shared a quite beautiful post on graphic design featuring a set of abstract illustrations titled Espectros. The idea is simple, it basically blends shapes with a radial gradient. However the composition makes it very unique. As the wise man say, the simple things are always the most difficult to achieve. Silvino proved that to be right. I wouldn't mind having one of those in my house.
Let's kick it off with a beautiful branding & editorial design by Angello Torres who is a graphic designer from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Ver Para Oír / Jardín Japonés translated to See To Hear / Japanese Garden and I simply love this project. The mixture of the culture, colours and you just gotta love that font Avant Garde who has been my go-to font for years. Check it out, this project is beautifully shown in execution and presentation.

Make sure to follow their work on Behance.
We are taking a look at this very cool visual identity project for Kodak, a place for music. Designed by Estudio Albino and Roberto De Leon who are both from Guadalajara, Mexico. What I love about this project is first of all the tone they used on the use of the logos across the branding, you totally understand the movement generated by music through the distortion. It's a beautiful understatement and surely is creative on all ends. Enjoy!
We're totally digging these gorgeous Tarot cards designed for Neustellar, a Swiss organization run by Andreas Graf that provides spiritual teaching, mindfulness workshops and counseling. The creative talent behind the work is the lovely Caterina Bianchini, a multi-award winning designer and art director based in London. Tarot cards may not be the first place you look for drawing inspiration but we hope these have moved you just as much as they have us.
Orlando Arocena is a Mexican-Cuban-American vector artist and creative director based in New Haven, USA. One of his dreams was to collaborate with the Empire Magazine, as he said, it was in his bucket list. Well, we are happy that it's not there anymore because he created a fantastic magazine cover design for the upcoming movie Avengers: Infinity War.
Let us take a look at this beautiful and colourful brand identity project by Ollestudio for Onet, there is also graphic design and illustration involved in the overall process. With the company motto of:"Design is fun.", this design studio from Krakow, Poland truly does it all with a flair, I would definitely check out their Behance for more branding projects.
I always admire those that challenge themselves to daily activities like taking a photo a day, or design something different every day. It seems simple at first, however, like everything in life, the closest you get to the realization of something, the more difficult things become. I believe it does that to naturally select those that have real passion for the others. For this post I'd love to share the typography work that TJ Nicklin created titled 36 DAYS OF TYPE. The style and quality of the illustrations is just top notch.
We're delighted by the whimsical work of French-born, Berlin-based illustrator Marc Majewski and in particular his recent children's picture book titled Une Histoire. The story is an ode to the imagination and daydreaming and takes the reader on a joyous journey by way of endearing illustrations spotlighting Majewski's passion for color and light.
Angela Fisher shared a beautiful brand identity project that she worked on for the 2018 Adobe Summit which it is a celebration of Experience Makers. The project is simply awesome and we had to feature it here on ABDZ, especially because Angela was kind to post quite a few details about the process.
I am a couple hours away to leave for Sweden, by the meantime I wanted to discover some designers from this beautiful country in the eastern part of the Scandinavian Peninsula. We are taking a look at the work from Dalston Creative, a design studio located in Stockholm. They have worked at creating the brand identity for NOCK, a new three-floor design from the 19th-century building on Renstiernas Gata on Södermalm. I would love to point out that the architect was done by Jenny Frigren and Interior design by Covet
It's no secret we're big fans of the work coming from Kati Forner Design having showcased some past work of hers here on Abduzeedo. Of late we're swooning over the most recent work for Kombucha brand Muse + Mettā founded by Trent Brokie .
Imbibing tea is a relaxing activity so consuming the packaging should match that same feeling. We're steeping in the beauty of Austrian-based Sabina Loacker's concepting, art direction and graphic design work for a local tea brand and reminding us all that inspiration is always right in front of us. The simple typeface matches the super minimal design and we're just loving every bit of the resulting look and feel.
We would love to share the work from Attila Hadnagy who is a designer and illustrator. Based in London, UK, he has a really nice combination of skillset and today we are showcasing his 2017 collection work on logos. I personally think creating logos are part of what I love doing the most about our work. Creating the visual identity, the very first step is somehow such a long and rewarding process. For which in the end will determine how your clients with go head-to-head into their business and goals.
La Boca created a beautiful poster design to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Fritz Lang sci-fi classic, Metropolis. It was screen printed in 4 colour variations using a combination of metallic inks and mirrored papers to create the same art deco look. The result as I mentioned in the beginning is quite stunning. I particularly love the colors as well as the textures. So check it out after the break.
