Found a whole pile of outstanding work by Nicolas Burrows – this first one pretty much sums up my life for the past couple years. The top of his page says Illustration but there is a lot of stuff on there that sorta meanders out of that realm. I particularly like his typeset made from discarded pieces of construction paper.
Jaw-dropping aerial photography by David Maisel. Taken from his website: “For more than twenty years, David Maisel has chronicled the tensions between nature and culture in his large-scaled photographs of environmentally impacted landscapes.” Enjoy some collisions of natural and man-made beauty abstracted by a master.
Your life is officially over. Well, if you are at all interested in fashion it is. I came across Lookbook about a month ago and my productivity went sub-zero for quite awhile. Aspiring fashionistas upload photos of themselves and attach details of exactly what they’re wearing – photos are hyped up and aggregated on the main page. Simple concept, perfect execution.
Another site in the vein of Threadless and DesignbyHumans has entered the arena. Desired Hearts. How are they any different? “With every shirt you order we’ll give at least $2 to the charity of your choice. Why? Because its the right thing to do.”
I like seeing this sort of thing, and would love to see them succeed. The site is brand spankin’ new (still beta in fact) so that’s a heads up for all you designers – Get over there before every other kid with their finger on the halftone filter does.
