Evernotes Every Friday
1. Tiny Colorful Buildings
Ok so this was actually posted to Kelli Anderson’s blog last week but it was too late for my Evernotes Every. But it was too good to pass up so I accepted it for this week instead. I get to make the rules anyway. As I have said before, infographics are hard to make and even harder to design to please the eye. This was designed for Airbnb, an online company that facilitates the renting of “homes” worldwide. Like the movie The Holiday. Anyway, they just booked their one millionth night so Kelli illustrated these infographics for their site. Please view the full image here, it makes me want to book with them and stay in a treehouse out in the middle of nowhere, or an igloo…
2. Lucky Luxe Handkerchief
The most beautiful typography layout for a traditional invitation ever. Ever! And it’s printed on a hankey! Cute!
3. Pixar’s Up Movie House Recreated in Real Life
There’s no denying that I am a sucker for all things Disney. But seeing this project by National Geographic gave me the chills. The world of animation gives the animator an open creative plane where they can dream up concepts never before seen, dreams that are not possible in our reality. So for an animator to see his dream constructed in real life must be a real treat! See more photos and video here.
4. Red Curtain Music Series on Construction Whitewash
I just discovered this blog where designers and the like showcase their submitted pieces that were printed on French Paper. There’s a certain challenge in creating with only 1-2 colors but Dan Judge succeeded in this design. I love the shade of green used and Dan’s illustrative style. See more of his work here.
5. Buy art? Prognosticator : Kelli Anderson
Yes, this is work by Kelli Anderson. Again. In one post. Is that bad? No, it’s not. She’s that good. Every piece she creates stands alone from the others and I couldn’t not post this one because I posted another project of hers in the same day. Do you remember these paper made fortunes from grade school? I do! I made tons of them! Were they these beautifully designed? Sadly no. This fortune was created for 20×200 as a guide for New Yorkers to decide on whether buying a certain piece of art would be the right decision during the Armory Show 2011 Art Fair. The whole bag had such fun goodies. I want one.
