Pawl Nolbert is a freelance graphic / web designer and illustrator from Poland. He worked for clients like Citroen, Nike, Unilever and McDonalds. I stumbled upon his gorgeous portfolio at www.hellocolor.com through his deviantart account. He knows how to put bright colours to life using different techniques of swirls, glows and the popular “grunge paper overlay” effect.
PicLens is the most amazing thing I’ve experienced lately. It is a plugin that lets you turn a simple photostream into an interactive module to browse images. It is really sad that there are no real screenshots available, but trust me. It is the bomb. It is supported by the major browsers, although it works best in firefox. If your lucky enough to an apple laptop with 2-finger scrolling enabled trackpad then you’re in for a treat.
Basically what the plugin does is project the pictures from flickr, deviantart, google, facebook, … onto a wall which you can zoom in on, turn left and right or simply lay back and enjoy a slideshow. It’s never been been more fun to look for inspiration. Let me know what you think about it.
A list featuring artwork with a common inspiration: CMYK. All these designs were found by searching for “CMYK” on deviantArt. There are many more but these struck me as special. It shows how a single idea can be interpreted in many different ways. I’ve linked each picture to the associated artist. Go clicky!
MCXU is a “family” of artists who contribute their work. The styles are very different and range from photography to graphic design and illustration. There should be something fer everyone. As far as I know they’re all German.
This is amazing. Animals on the Underground are animals created using only the tube lines, stations and junctions of the London Underground Map. Paul Middlewick who first spotted them in 1988 has a great imagination. Now I know what I can do while waiting for a train.
