I hope you’ve all had a great week! Mine has been quite busy between a big work project, saying goodbye to traveling friends, helping plan two friend’s weddings, and spending an evening helping some friends move into their first home. Oh! And scheming on a new logo and website for another friend. Just so much fun in one week!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love student design work! Designed by Ryan Bosse, a design student at Fort Hays University, the Avoir line is breakfast food items with bold flavor. Ryan’s design incorporates a mixture of patterns and clean typography, two of my favorite things! Found via the dieline.
2. The Joy of Books
I smiled while watching this whole video. It must have taken hundreds of man hours to put this short stop animation together. But I do love the nod to Tim Burton in the beginning, a revolutionary in the stop animation realm. But I really love the ending frame which really sums up the whole video. Found via Facebook.
3. Randy Fenoli Site by Promise Tangeman
Well, she’s done it again. I love every design by Promise Tangeman, but in particularly, with her latest design for Randy Fenoli, she surpasses the limits of web design as she created an entirely new look for the main navigation of the site. I have never seen anyone use the main navigation in the “left sidebar” in this way, ever. Bravo Promise on another “work of art.” View Randy’s full site here.
4. Modern/Retro Wedding Suite by Brad Woodard
I just started to follow Brad Woodard’s work after seeing his work on Share Some Candy (featured on Evernotes Every last month). I have just barely gotten through all his amazing work in his portfolio and found this SWEEET wedding invitation suite! He custom designed everything from the pattern to the map. The map alone is such a neat feature. I have never seen a map used as the background of the main invitation, but the way Brad designed it, it gives the entire piece a grid like patterned background. Then the retro inspired pattern on the back is just as sweet as their wedding date and initials are sprinkled throughout. In other words… I just LOVE it!
5. Business Cards for Le Pourvoyeur
Designed by Sébastien Bisson, the business cards for Le Pourvoyeur feature a bold red mark with personalized icons (taken from the logo) for the various employees. It gives each card a more personal and custom look and feel—in such a bold way! Found via Looks Like Good Design.
