2 Mar

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.

WOAH! Super slick.

Triforce Tribute
Design + crafts + everything Zelda. I never played the game (ZELDA NERDS REVOLT!), but can get behind some serious geekery for the game. This show is sure to be very successful.

Annual report powered by the sun
Austria Solar commissioned the first annual report powered by the sun. Its content remains invisible until sunlight falls on its pages. Design work by serviceplan campaign. This is really cool.

Wesley Stuckey

16 Mar

Wesley Stuckey is a graphic designer and printmaker on his way to earn his MFA from MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art). Wesley previously earned his BFA in both fine art printmaking and graphic design from Mississippi State University. He uses a lot of illustration in his work, which gives each of the pieces tons of character and a wonderfully personal feel. On the contrary, some of his other work is as crisp and clean as they come; the Milk & Honey Market website, for example. Good stuff.

Luca Barcellona

15 Mar

I stumbled across this video of graphic designer and calligrapher Luca Barcellona doing some impressive freehand calligraphy and was on the edge of my seat the whole time. The dude has some serious skill. According to his website, he also “teaches calligraphy with the Associazione Calligrafica Italiana and holds workshops in several European cities.” A calligraphy workshop in Europe…sounds pretty sweet.

Kid Icarus

9 Mar

Here’s a look into another screen printing shop. This one being Toronto, Canada-based Kid Icarus. A husband and wife team, Michael Viglione and Bianca Bickmore have been producing some personal, illustration-heavy, and down right cute handmade goods since 2007. One Week Job gives you a look inside Kid Icarus’ shop and  how they run their business here.
