Style Snacks by Sara Lintner

  I love this new instagram campaign for Target by the talented Sara Lintner. Here’s what she had to say about it: It’s what’s on your list and what you didn’t even know you needed (and definitely can’t leave the store without). But it’s not just a mashup of killer products; it’s the details of...

Apu Cemento by Brand Lab

Apu Cemento by Brand Lab

    I dig this cement packaging by Brand Lab. They kept it simple. I always love when the typographic design reflects the illustrative design choices. The colors are also great. I love using black and amber for manly brands.

    This is a fun illustration style. It’s a good mix of geometric shape and playful exaggeration of scale. Good colors to boot. You can see Dawid’s full book here. https://www.behance.net/talkseek                                          
#ShapeColorArt: Exploration

#ShapeColorArt: Exploration

    I spent my bus ride and lunch break today exploring and simplifying the bicycle print. I focused on the balance of color. I stuck with my modified primary palette. It might be nice to paint all of these or to make them out of cut paper to make them a bit more human. I’m...

#badgehunting in Stillwater – Jackpot

  The great thing about antique stores is that you can go to the same store annually and each time most of the content is new. There were some great finds this round. Enjoy. If you happen to find some gems out in the world, be sure to post them to Instagram and hashtag them...
Shape, Color, Art

Shape, Color, Art

    I’ve been very into a look that I’ve classified as “Shape, Color, Art”. It’s minimal. It’s bright. It’s geometric. It usually is about form over concept. I find it very refreshing and it’s found it’s way into quite a bit of my work lately. Work like this Cartwheel rebrand and this Target Art...
