This keeps catching my eyes and ears. ITV’s coverage for the Brit Awards 2014 has created this dynamic, simplistic and edgy advert using only their Philip Treacy designed trophy. Fabulous.

The track is Dibby Dibby Sound by DJ Fresh & Jay Fay, featuring Ms Dynamite.

I came across these in a trendy little market in Brooklyn a few months ago. Subway system maps of huge cities all over the world, designed with the most minimalist approach. I can’t seem to find much info on the creators of these pieces. Only that there’s a graphic designer named Cayla and an engineer named John. They have a site lineposters.com and a shop where you can buy the posters or t-shirts on etsy. Mysterious folk, but nice work.

This is quite brilliant! Swiss designer and comedian Ursus Wehrli recently came out with a book called ‘The Art of Clean Up’. The book consists of before shots of everyday ordinary items, such as people, food and objects, followed by the after shot of his systematic ‘clean up’ of the item/s. The whole book is very amusing from the things he chooses to photograph to the way he deconstructs each of them. Very beautiful. You can buy the book online!

This fantastic poster to me seems like a mix of the old and the new. Designed by Alberto Morales,  the dress and monochrom tone is quite old world Russia vs the photoshopped 3D overlay combined with sophistically positioned typography and minimalist textiles. This is quite the delight as these subjects are personal favourites of mine (Russia/3D).

Not only has IKEA paved the way for beautifully, modern, sophisticated furniture that comes at a great price, but now it reaches even further to create minimalist ways of cooking. IKEA created a 140 page promotional cook-book using unique photography and layout. In order to keep the very sleek, visually pleasing furniture and all-over look of IKEA, the cook-book was created with these points in mind. Inspiration was drawn from Japanese minimalism. Beautiful. I’m intrigued to see what they’ll come up with next!
