Wanna keep the 'poster design' love today with Mitya Andrievskiy's Everything & Nothing poster series he shared on Behance.

The anticipated 80s nostalgia Strangers Things Season 3 is now available for streaming. Did you watch it yet?

The best way to learn is trying, practicing and repeating that until it becomes natural, then we can move forward to what's next. That happens without us even noticing but sometimes we do and we organize ourselves to do that.

The result is quite inspiring, check it out.
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. What really fascinates me is the depth that the composition gets by the order of the layers which seem to come alive at first glance. For this creative project the idea is a paper-craft piece using colored paper, foam paper and glue.
Did you get a chance to watch the first look at Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong and the years 1961-1969 in the movie: "First Man".

It's a collaboration between many talented artists including Ryan Atkinson, James Elgie, Rijin Kunnath and RODAS ®. Imagine the conventional spacesuit into a fashion collection, what do you think?

Ola Jasionowska is a graphic designer and illustrator from Warsaw, Poland with some amazing illustration work. I particularly love the posters created in 2017 and shared on Behance. When I saw the poster design project, it kind of reminded me of Saul Bass poster and style, very simple and bold. The color palette and combinations are also top notch.
