Michael Jeter

27 May

Michael Jeter is a full-bearded San Francisco, CA-based graphic designer, illustrator, animator, and art director currently working for I Shot Him. He is also the co-creator and curator of the Black Harbor, an “online art and design magazine featuring prominent young designers, illustrators, photographers, film-makers, and dreamers.” I’d say that’s an understatement. The work they feature is super top-notch and very impressive, sometimes showing process, others just straight-up bad ass illustration work.

Michael’s work definitely fits in the same “super bad ass illustration” category. Technical, detailed, sometimes dark and creepy, and others which have a vintage feel with tons of texture. His Sexy, Sex, Sex posters that were featured in O.K. Periodical’s body issue are truly hilarious and awesome.

Fantastic stuff, Michael!

Brandon Oxendine

11 May

Brandon Oxendine is a Charleston, SC-based graphic designer, illustrator, front-end developer, and type enthusiast. He currently works at Fuzzco in Charleston, South Carolina, creating mostly websites for their clients, but weaves his love of type and illustration into those sites. Brandon’s style is incredibly clean; whether it’s a custom type treatment, illustration, or logo. Clean cut is the way this dude rolls, except for his ever-changing facial hair. Sounds like a guy after my own heart.

Brandon also had a side-project of sorts last year. He called it “A Word A Day,”  and drew a new word almost every day. He used this project to push himself and explore his capabilities and boundaries and finished out the year with 144 solid, custom lettering explorations. I’m curious where the words came from that he used for this project? Brandon?

Great stuff, man. Thanks for the inspiration!

Ed Nacional

9 May

Ed Nacional is a NYC-based freelance graphic designer, illustrator, and typographer with a cool style. His designs are simple and graphic and have a vintage feel (60s, 70s), sometimes utilizing textures, other times as clean as they come. Ed has done editorial illustration work for Time Magazine, The New York Times, and Money Magazine, all having a clever sense of humor about them. His info graphics are wonderful and smart. When necessary, he’s even used old newspaper or from his collection of neck ties (acquired from his dad, bought at flea markets, or thrift stores, as well as a few brand new ones) to create type. Very cool, Ed!

Heath Killen

,

Heath Killen is an Australia-based graphic designer and illustrator who has a rather unique style. It’s a mix of hand-illustrated pieces, photo montage, and sometimes a combination of computer-generated and/or handwritten type, which has a very nice balance. The photo placement and cropping are interesting in themselves, then he adds in the type, color, and texture which makes each piece even more intriguing.

Heath has designed a ton of self-initiated spec. work for film, music, and the arts. I think these production companies should take note and hire this guy to do their actual promo art for their movie/music/theater productions.

Wonderful work, Heath! Thanks for the inspiration.

Jez Burrows

4 May

Jez Burrows is an Edinburgh, UK-based graphic designer, illustrator, and woodland appreciator. He is also co-founder of an independent press Sing Statistics which publishes fiction and visual art , one fifth of collective Evening Tweed, and frequent contributor to It’s Nice That. Jez has a clean style with lots of detail in most of his pieces. The infographics he’s designed could make the most boring of facts into something people would actually want to look at and enjoy what they see.

Jez also designed the logo (and possibly other pieces) for the Build Conference. He also had a hand in designing/making special over-sized wooden nuts which were given to each of the speakers at the conference. Real nice!

As I was reading his blog, I came across a tumblr site Jez and his buddy Jake Blanchard created that I thought was quite funny/useful. Photobooth Reference: Illustrators using themselves for reference. I would be neat to see the pieces the illustrators created based on their reference photos…Just a thought.

Great work, Jez!
