We used to feature more digital art and photo manipulation but we felt it was getting a bit too much of the same. Of course there's always space for beautiful artwork like the Skull Candy project shared by Lorett Foth. It was a project done in Photoshop, 3ds Max and Zbrush. The quality of the composition and details make us believe that the scene was real, especially the lighting.
Branding goes beyond the logo, we mentioned that several times. The biggest challenge for designers is how to create a system that is scalable and efficient across different mediums. Carlos Bauer and Nicholas Pierre shared a great example on their Behance page. It's the visual identity for Tropico, a great example of beautiful word mark and collaterals.
We are taking a close look at the work from Al Power and his illustrative series about various landmarks in Europe. Going through these, you can quickly recognize the Eiffel Tower, London Clock Tower and so on.
Today we will show you a small and exquisite home on coast of Stokkøya, Norway, a project by Asante Architecture & Design. The house is located right next to the water overlooking the neighboring islands and the Norwegian Sea. The place was designed for a chef and is pure inspiration. Beautiful material combination and a simple layout deliver a great space. Huge windows, lots of natural light and breathtaking views give this place an extra charm. Take a look!
For this week’s wallpaper, we are sharing this image by me on my recent trip to Iceland.

This wallpaper is only available on mobile for the primary reason that the shot was took vertically. There will be more coming and in Desktop versions as well, by the meantime please enjoy and follow me on Instagram.
