Radim Malinic aka Brand Nu just launched his new website. Radim is a freelance art director, illustrator and graphic designer based in London. He’s also a good friend of mine and regular LDNMeets attendee. The website features loads of new work, from illustration to typography to branding. Furthermore, the site is a perfect example of what a portfolio site should look like. It’s clean, responsive and easy to navigate. Below are a few screenshots, for the full experience go to www.brandnu.co.uk

A while back I was contacted by Jack from Oomph, a plastic card printing company based in Hampshire, UK, asking whether I was interested in a free sample of their plastic business cards in exchange for a review. The timing couldn’t have been better as I was planning on getting new cards anyways, so I said yes. It took me a while to design them as is always the case when being your own client. Jack has been very patient with me and nothing but helpful.
Mystery Box has collaborated with Studio Canal to produce a limited run of official TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY posters by 2 of my favourite digital artists: James White of Signalnoise and Tom Muller of helloMuller. They shouldn’t need an introduction, but for those who’ve lived under a rock for the past few years, I’m gonna give you one anyways.
I’ve had the good fortune of meeting both of them, with Tom being a regular at the LDNMeets designer meetups, run by Greg Browne and yours truly. They’re great lads and I can only suggest you try and grab a drink with them if you ever get the chance.
I’m super thrilled to announce the launch of the Fudgegraphics Apparel Line T-shirts, now available to purchase in the Fudgegraphics Store. This project has been in the making for almost a year, it’s been on my mind for a lot longer though. There’s a total of 3 designs in the initial series which I like to call ‘Numerology’: 123, T(h)ree & Super8. Rather than simply showing off the graphics I would also like to give you a brief insight into the making, from initial sketches to choosing a printing company.
This post is part of the For Your Inspiration Monday series showcasing the most inspiring designs out there. Each week a new artist or design style will be presented in order to get your creative juices flowing for the upcoming week. I hope you enjoy the series.
For his first self-intitiated solo show ‘The West End Show‘, graphic designer and illustrator Radim Malinic, aka Brand Nu, has taken the multifarious, vibrant and frequently taxing area of London’s West End as his inspiration. Radim explores the magical and bustling part of the capital in a series of elaborately illustrated poster designs, bringing together classic old century design with the dazzling neon future of the 22nd century.
Time has flown quicker than ever and I can’t believe that it’s already the end of 2011. It’s been a great year, both personally and professionally, and I’ve got plenty of new things lined up for the future already. There will be more inspirational posts, more freebies and a little surprise as well. I can’t wait to reveal all in the new year.
Until then, I want to take this opportunity to wish you all happy holidays. I hope that 2011 was great on you too and that 2012 will be even bigger and better. Thanks for your continuous support. Fudgegraphics wouldn’t be the same without you!
When it comes to design, colour is one of the most important tools in our arsenal. Choosing the right colour sets the mood for the design and gives a great layout that final touch. Over the last 12 months I’ve asked 35 of my favourite designers and bloggers one simple question: What’s your favourite colour? Although, as everyone will tell you, there’s nothing simple about the question. It’s really hard to find that single colour to identify with. Chances are that some of these answers are already out of date, they do however reflect the state of mind of the interviewee at the time of sending me their answer.
