Casmic Lab is a versatile design studio based in Valencia, Spain. I am enthralled by their collection of illustrated portraits. Comprised of geometric forms, marbled textures, and lively patterns, the faces are bold and striking. As I look over the drawings, each character’s hypnotic gaze pulls me deeper into the composition and I can’t help but want to study every detail.

Everyday Practice is a Korean design studio that has a passion for experimenting with different mediums. From animated GIFs to fine art sculptures, their portfolio is full of innovative projects made from a variety of materials. The studio is especially inventive when it comes to constructing unique typography. A very clever type treatment can be seen in their work for the 2017 Seoul International Handmade Fair. Taking the event’s theme to heart, they crafted a colorful tapestry that features hand woven letterforms. The beautiful weaving was photographed and paired with digital type to create the event’s poster.

The Moderns by Steven Heller and Greg D’Onofrio

Looking for some new inspiration or something to add to your winter reading list? Here’s a few of the titles that we’ve received within the last month or so. Included are awesome titles from Abrams, Blast Books, The Monacelli Press, Thames & Hudson, Wee Society and Princeton Architectural Press.

Ivan Weiss and Michael Kryenbül of the design studio Johnson/Kingston aim to create inventive work that challenges the norm. To keep their designs fresh and unique, they often craft bespoke typefaces and unconventional layouts for posters and websites. They then pair these elements with intricate textures and distorted imagery that signifies the mood of the event they are designing for. I’m especially fond of their work for the 2016 B-Sides Festival. The event’s poster features jagged graphics and an ornate typeface that characterizes the music festival’s edgy, yet playful atmosphere.

Fol Studio is a multidisciplinary design firm that strives to be a “brand development partner” for their clients. Their strong branding skills are especially evident in their poster work for exhibitions and film festivals throughout Turkey. I’m particularly fond of their work for the art space Arter. For a retrospective on the controversial artwork of Jake and Dinos Chapman, the studio crafted eye-catching posters that feature mutated letterforms and bright splashes of color. These elements characterize the brands of both the gallery and the artists by featuring the bright hues of Arter’s identity system and signifying the audacity of the Chapman’s portfolio.

Kate Prior is a London-based artist currently working as an in-house illustrator for Urban Outfitters. Her quirky aesthetic fits perfectly with the brand and speaks to its hip and outgoing customers. Her humorous drawings have also caught the attention of Google. Last year, the tech giant commissioned her to create a set of stickers for its messaging app Allo. For the project, she crafted the Cool Beans, a gang of bean-shaped characters that hilariously reflect the wide range of emotions one often shares with friends.

The speckled textures of Simone Noronha’s illustrations give her work the eccentricity of an airbrushed painting, yet the drama of a vintage grainy film. This aesthetic is perfect for clients, such as The New York Times and Vanity Fair, for whom she crafts illustrations for their inviting, yet serious articles. This visual style was also fitting for her submission for The 69 Project, an online group art show that celebrated music from 1969. While illustrating Led Zeppelin’s song, “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You”, she merged simple forms with intricate stippled shading. The combination of these elements capture the bittersweet lyrics and tone of the ballad.

The Geneva-based studio, Cécile + Roger, crafts exceptional work for the Mirage Festival in Lyon, an annual celebration of art and digital culture. Over the past five years, they created promotional materials that capture the innovative spirit of the featured installations and performances.

This year, the festival’s theme was “(Im)materialities”, the idea of transforming a perceived truth. To express this concept, the studio developed an identity system consisting of round splotches, line patterns, and bright hues. The elements hark back to the event’s vibrant laser beams and often unite to form abstract faces. This materialization represents the phenomenon of pareidolia – the imagined perception of pattern or meaning where it does not actually exist – a mirage.
