Markus Hofko / The Rainbow Monkey

Super fresh work from Auckland New Zealand’s Markus Hofko (aka The Rainbow Monkey). When Markus sent me the link I assumed I was looking at a bunch of work created by a collective of people – like an agency – but this is all Hofko. Amazing.

Ivana Martinovic

Ivana Martinovic passed me a link to her design portfolio and I’m glad she did. I especially like these embroideries that were created for a series of wine labels. Beautiful work.

Claire Nereim

Interesting type experiments, unconventional calendars, and polaroids of sticks (all the sticks were safely returned to the forest). Check out the work of Claire Nereim. Really digging her dateless calendars – wall calendars are for show anyways.
