Taking a Voyage into the Deep Void with this Illustration Series

 I've always been fascinated with space and its deep void, what about an illustration series that is giving up a glimpse and also a tour of our whole 9 planets from the solar system. Well, this is what motion designer Mitch Myers created and it's just stunning. Everything made in Cinema 4D so it's giving us quality with a mix of realism and look. What's cool about it too is that they are all optimized and animation ready for your next project.

Discover Freelance.tv: Stories about Freelancing

 Somehow freelancing in our field is something we can all relate to, whenever we've done it (and still do) or you've never done it at all. One thing for sure, it isn't as glamorous as it seems (I've personally did for 8 years) and I can admit that it has its ups and downs. There is a lot more work involved if you compare to a 9-5 schedule because with freelancing, you don't have a schedule. You can work as much as 20 hours a week to 90 hours a week; depending on how you organize your workflow and most importantly how hard you hustle at getting the clients, promoting yourself and etc.

Product Design: Wrist Watches

 Some people love their wrist watches. I usually don't use one, but I sure enjoy a well designed clock. When it comes to the product design of clocks, we can find thousands of models online and it's just a matter of taste to find the perfect fit for you.

Super Realistic 3D Rendering of a Homeless

 We have been posting a lot about UI/UX, architecture, photography and branding. I know some of you think we forgot about Photoshop or 3D but we have not forgotten. To prove that to you I want to share this incredible project created by Yan Blanco titled Homeless. I have no words to describe how amazing the 3D rendering is, so here is from Yan's words: the project is tribute to all those who are forgotten and ignored. To those who have incredible stories never told. To those who make the streets their home, during the day, at night, in the heat, in the cold. They are always there.

Lettering Design with Kyle Letendre

 Nothing is more refreshing than a dose of lettering design that is quite awesome, inspiring and playful to look at. Well, this is exactly what Chicago-based freelance lettering artist/designer Kyle Letendre has done and it's stunning! First comment is that I love his colour palette on this project was he recalled them to be various pieces of lettering from the past year or so. It kind of reminded me of the colours from the biru brand Sapporo, don't you think? I just liked the variety of different styles included in this collection, quite impressive.

Brand Identity and Graphic Design for The Metropolitain Orchestra

 The byHAUS Studio shared a great brand identity and graphic design project on their Behance profile. It's the new identity for The Metropolitain Orchestra with Yannick Nézet-Séguin. They describe it as a rethought the identity by playing with contrasts and sensations. The new logo is a monogram composed of two letters: one anchored in modernity, the other in a classical tradition. Moreover, the perfect circle which replaces the letter O is exploited throughout a graphic design platform as a window where the music is expressed. A lyrical and opulent typographic game completes the identity system. Thus, OM proudly takes the place it deserves: an orchestra assumed, relevant, well of its time, but still and always resolutely classic - in their own words.

Amazing Graphic Design and CGI Work from Filtre Studio

 We are fans of graphic design, photo manipulation and retouching. We can see a lot of incredible work done for the advertising industry. The quality of the work is so good that most of the times you are convinced that what you see is real. Of course when we saw the work done by the folks over at Filtre Studio we knew we had to post it here on ABDZ.
