To mark the 70th anniversary of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s death, Penguin Classics planned to publish hardback editions of six titles. The patterns evoke the jazz age of Fitzgerald’s stories, giving these books the elegance and glamour of the Art Deco period: the sense of ornate detail fused with the modernist aesthetic of mechanical repetition.
The combination of metallic foil and matt paper gives a tactile enhancement to the reading experience. The type panel fits with the deco theme and is echoed on the detachable bookmarks.
With a quirky canvas and steady hand, Anastassia Elias creates fantastic scenes inside empty toilet paper rolls. With the right lighting these scenes burst to life; silhouettes in a land of cardboard.
Check out more of Anastassias work here! Some really clever stuff!
Looking on the wpaPINFOLD design agency website, I spotted my favourite piece of work! Its so simple yet unique and really catches my eye! The brief was to create a brand to reflect a contemporary and authentic brewery-owned pub.

Absolutely love this! Very inspiring piece of self promotional info-graphics from graduating graphic design student, Arran Bullock.
I absolutely love these bar cars designed by Neil Hubet. They are so beautiful and tie in really well with a project I am undertaking at the moment. I want a set myself but cant find them anywhere! Gorgeous.
The Brief: "It always rains in your country. Make a poster for visitors to the UK

For the past few months Paige Smith of A Common Name has been installing colorful geodes within the gaps of crumbling buildings and other public infrastructure on the streets of L.A. Each piece is site-specific and made from carefully cut and painted paper. I think it would be pretty awesome to stumble onto one of these in the wild without knowing anything about it. You can see a full gallery of all the sedentary formations as well as a map of their locations over at A Common Name!
Beautifully crafted take on the old, much loved game of scrabble. Designed by Drew Capener... so elegantly done!
