Featured Artist: Andrio Abero

Andrio Abero has established 33rpm in 2000 and has been working for the Seatlle music scene for almost 10 years before moving to New York. I love his strong concepts and impeccable execution. His designs are among the greatest music poster graphics I’ve ever seen. Apart from prints Andrio also does web design and illustrations for publications. Take 20 minutes of me-time and dive into his portfolio.

fudgegraphics has yet another design

Yes I know! I just can’t help it. I wasn’t happy with the design and decided to give it a new look. Hopefully this design is more user-friendly. Please let me know if there are any bugs.

Featured Artist: Greig Anderson

Greig Anderson is a 26 year old graphic designer from Glasgow, Scotland. He showcases all his work at effektivedesign.co.uk. You’ve probably seen some of his great graphics already but I just had to feature him on fudgegraphics. I immediately fell in love with the designs when I first saw his cassette button sets. His imagination is sheer amazing. As always I only showcase some of the best works. Usually there are pieces in one’s portfolio that I don’t like that much, but when it comes to Greig Anderson there isn’t a single piece that isn’t fantastic! I even enjoyed reading his biography. It’s witty and informative. I predict a great future for this fairly young graphic designer.

Jonathan Haggard updates his portfolio

A couple weeks back I featured the work of Jonathan Haggard who works under the alias of “skryingbreath”. He dropped me a mail to inform me of his newly launched portfolio at jonathanhaggard.com. It is definitely worth a look.

Featured Artist: Mike Orduna (Fatoe)

I’ve had the portfolio of Californian designer Mike Orduna bookmarked for some time now. Today I finally found some sparetime to really look into it and make a selection of his best works. Mike is better known under the alias of FATOE and his style could be described as being messy, vibrant and colourful. I’ll let you decide for yourself how you would like to characterize is. His portfolio is really extensive and his client list includes quite big names. Apart from finding his location (LA) and age (32) there wasn’t much information on him. More inspiration on www.fatoe.com

Unusual and Beautiful Mugs for Tea/Coffee Lovers

I don’t make a secret out of it: I am addicted to tea and coffee. So what better way to prove my love for these delicious brews than showcasing some of the best mug designs. Some of these are clever, some funny and others just plain gorgeous. When I started researching extraordinary mugs I didn’t realise that there were so many unique designs out there. These are the ones I found and like for one of the above mentioned reasons. In case you’re wondering, I drink my tea the British way.

July 08 Calendar Wallpaper

It’s not July just yet but I’ve still finished the calendar wallpaper for July 2008. This is partly due to the fact that I will be moving on Thursday and don’t know how much time it will take to get settled in. As always the wallpaper comes in 2 versions: with and without the calendar. This way, if you like it, you can still use it after the month has passed. You even have the choice between a bright and dark version.

There are 2 different resolutions available: 1920×1200, which is suitable for 1440×900, and 1600×1200. I hope these will suit your needs. Feel free to drop a comment if you need it in a different aspect ratio and I’ll do my best to provide it to you.

Great Album Cover Designs

I often go into large music stores to see what new music has emerged. Although online stores might be more convenient I enjoy flicking through CDs and vynils. Every now and then a particularly appealing album cover draws my attention. I might know the band and like their music, or not. Anyways, yesterday was such a day where i spent about an hour browsing through album covers seeking that eye-catching artwork. I got lucky and found a few real gems which I want to share with you. Unfortunately it wasn’t easy to find good quality pictures of the artworks. So please forgive me for some pixelated pictures.
