Optical Ripple is the latest print from artist and designer Simon C. Page who often explores complex geometric patterns as well as the interplay of colour. This latest piece involves a kaleidoscopic array of colours and concentric circles that borders on the edge of a blurry optical illusion.

Handmade in Sheffield
Field Cycles is a collaboration between a group of friends from various craft, design and engineering disciplines. The unique skillsets of the contributors - a maker, a painter, a graphic designer and an engineer - have come together in a shared passion that treats the fabrication of a bicycle as an exploration of craft, aesthetics and function.
The partnership was developed out of a common pursuit for a hand built bicycle frame with a return to artisan craftsmanship, and a shared obsession with the bespoke production process as an antidote to mass-produced manufacturing.
At its heart, a shared ethos of beauty manifests itself in the care and attention we pay to even the smallest of details within the process.

Paintings by Fabian Oefner
"Black Hole" is a series of images, which shows paint modeled by centripetal force. The setup is very simple: Various shades of acrylic paint are dripped onto a metallic rod, which is connected to a drill. When switched on, the paint starts to move away from the rod, creating these amazing looking structures.

Discarded tickets become playing cards
Printed on found and repurposed New York City subway fare cards, metrodeck attempts to visually capture the common thread between commuters, public transportation, and chance.
Every card has been gathered at random, after having been purchased, used, and discarded by either a visitor or resident of New York City. Some have been signed or otherwise marked, making each card unique with its own narrative potential.
Appropriating the language of playing cards, the work asks us to consider our intimate connection with the subway and the city. The face cards are inspired by landmarks across the five Boroughs, referencing the tremendous reach of the subway system.
Whether it’s a delay because of a sick passenger, train traffic ahead, or the ever-popular police activity, a “lucky hand” can make the difference between a brisk fifteen minute commute or a grueling, hour-long one.

Vrrb Colourful identity
By Jan Vranovský
Vrrb Interactive is California based web-developing studio. The founder asked us to design colorful identity with custom logotype. We came up with several concepts from which he chose the one based on logotype which is trying to emphasize the “rrrr” sound in the word by ending the first letter the same way as ‘r’s are. This also adds some extra rythm to the wordmark. Color system is based on existing set of color papers (Pop’Set) since printing white on pre-colored papers allows for much wider color variety of applications for low price than printing each and every spot color.

Branding The London 2012 Olympics
A great article by designboom.com showing the intricate details that go into branding such a massive event.
by Kevin Cyr
Statement: In a culture in which people are easily lured by the appeal of status-enhancing symbols, I find beauty in derelict cars and unkempt landscapes. I have always been interested in painting vehicles and scenes that have defined the evolution of the American landscape.
