friday blinks – 12/16/11

16 Dec

Here is a list of sites we’ve come across throughout the past couple weeks that we think are worth sharing. We call it friday blinks.

Indian Motorcycle Brand Campaign Concept
Minneapolis-based creative studio Soulseven, a.k.a. Sam Soulek and his team (Nick Brue, Anthony Cappetta, illustrator Curtis Jinkins, and photographers Dustin A. Beatty and Falcon Motorcycles) created a proposed piece for Indian Motorcycles that is totally bad ass. Love the arrow head mark the best.

In other news…
I finally updated my personal design portfolio site. It’s up and running, so check it out: brianyohndesign.com

I also participated in our local Help Portrait event this past weekend. It was extremely humbling and touching how much a photo meant to some people. One of the photos that was taken at our event has been featured on the Help Portrait site, as well as on CNN. The Help Portrait Roanoke team were so selfless and caring for others. It was great to connect with them, as well as the people who were getting their photos taken. It’s truly a great cause and if you weren’t able to do it this year, I highly recommend tracking down a local group to help out with for next year.
