1. Social Design House: Old Town Tender
I have been in web design mode and haven’t been spending much time catching up on the design blogs and the going ons in design world… when Courtney at Design Work Life posted this, a design for Rock Hill by Social, it fed my yearning for print design! I love everything about this project from the colors to the layout to the general idea of a town having its own “tender.” Read more here.
2. Pictorial Recipes
Oh how I wish all recipes would look like this! Help the visual learners out, people!! View more pictorial recipes here.
3. Historical Disney Princess
I first saw these on my friend Rachel’s tumblr and thought it was such a creative idea! What would the Disney princesses really look like if drawn in the aesthetic from their respective time periods? Claire Hummel has illustrated Jasmine, Snow White, Ariel, and Belle and can all be seen on her deviant art page. Shown here is Ariel, from the 1890s, based upon her weddding gown. Such an interesting spin in fan art.
4. Shadow Art
I found this via Pinterest, but it didn’t link back to its origin, so I have no idea who made it or what it’s for… it’s a pretty original idea though and beautifully executed!
5. Officemax Repositioning
Here’s a student project that was recently posted on the dieline, a redesign for Officemax. I love how the typography caters to the aesthetic of the piece while also helping the consumer while browsing the shelves. The color scheme used throughout are perfectly chosen and paired. Officemax, you should really do this!!
