Wood Sculpture | Morgan Herrin

Are you freaking kidding me!? Anyone who has worked with wood knows how difficult of a medium it is to work with, let alone carve… This Richmond, VA based artist Morgan Herrin transforms wood into spectacularly detailed figurative sculptures. The sculptures sometimes take a year to create, and depict some surreal imagery.

The Grand Budapest Hotel | Annie Atkins

The new Wes Anderson flick has some stellar design work, the old classy feel of these pictures and items are direct reflection of those quirky little worlds that Anderson builds in his film making. Stoked about this design work and stoked about the new movie.

TYCHO | Posters

Scott Hansen, musician and amazing designer. Who sometimes uses the pseudonym ISO50 for his graphic design and apparel work. I just love his stuff, and own a few of his posters. Check out the full shop here.

Lastly, if you ever get the chance to see TYCHO live, they put on an incredible audio visual performance. I saw them a couple of years ago at a tiny pub in Buffalo, NY. and the show was worth every penny.

Motorola Phonebloks | ‘Ara’ Smartphone Concept

Aesthetically beautiful, and an overall amazing concept. Give the users the hardware/functionality they desire. It’s neat to see a concept for a smartphone that caters to individuals instead of throwing out a product/phone that is universal for all users in terms of hardware and software. This idea is great because you can custom build your phone at the store, or order pieces and parts as time goes on. Advanced camera options, audio recording equipment, video equipment, Lasers! Hey whatever people want, this opens a huge market that has never been tapped before—give the people what they want. I love it, this idea is genius.

Paperboy Wine Packaging | Stranger & Stranger

This packaging is not only graphically gorgeous it is also extremely clever. The “bottle” is recycled cardboard that is formed into the shape of a wine bottle, then a small plastic bladder is filled inside to pour from. And that’s just the structure, the design is spectacular. Simplified color palette, black inks, the fun infographic on the back and the wonderful type and fron illustration. I will be hunting the liquor stores for this puppy.
