It always reminds me of vintage skateboard graphics and t-shirt designs. For more inspiration make sure to visit Marko’s Flickr page. + Continue Reading

Jordan Gray is designer, illustrator and art director from Kansas City. I first stumbled across Jordan’s work when I saw one of his gig posters. So I checked him out and loved all of his other projects too. Some of the designs are super busy with lots of colours, others are very minimal using a limited colour palette. It’s impressive to see that one person can pull off both so well while still maintaining a certain personal style. Check out some of Jordan’s work below.

Pornographics is creative studio based in Barcelona, founded by Salva Regas, Victor Lavega and Luis Campmajó. The studio merged with Toma78 in 2010. Pornographics did motion design, illustration and interactive media projects, but today I want to focus solely on their typographic works. The first time I came across them was through their self-initiated ‘Vintage Porn Logos’ project, which I can imagine many of you have seen before. Still, I hope you enjoy the trip down memory lane and find the other designs equally as stimulating (pun intended). For more inspiration make sure to visit www.pornographics.es. + Continue Reading

My favourite element has to be the colour schemes though. it’s always spot on. For more inspiration make sure to visit bennewman.co.uk. + Continue Reading
