The Blog

Welcome to the DESIGN.inc Blog, an ever changing collection of my picks from across the web, the art and design world or anything really that peaks my interest. I update my blog as often as possible, so remember to bookmark this page and check back from time to time.


Honest Logos

Instantly recognizable, satirically re-imagined. These frank logo reinventions are the work of Swedish designer, Viktor Hertz.

Ok, so let's be fair, one bite of a burger won’t cause diabetes and one glass of beer won’t cause obesity; but as the advertising industry shows positives only, so here Hertz has gone to the opposite extreme and focused only on the negatives.




Star Wars Blueprints

I came across these great designs by A2K Design recently and being a huge Star Wars fan, I loved them and thought I'd share them with you guys. Hope you like them too.

May the force be with you!




Split Portraits

These wonderfully creative photographs are the brainchild of Ulric Collette, an art director out of Quebec city.

He combines the portraits of Two people who are related, to demonstrate the similarities between them. They are all from his series "Genetic Portraits". You can check out his other work over on his website here. An interesting spin on the family portrait, don't you think?




Mario's Enemies

Reimagined

Since 1983, the Mario games have been the cornerstone of Nintendo's line-up and a stalwart of the gaming world at large. For nearly 30 years, the mustachioed dynamic duo have rescued the princess from Bowser's fiery grasp countless times, feasted on incalculable mushrooms, of myriad power-up varieties and mercilessly stomped a near infinite amount of, in many cases, actually quite cute enemies...




Global Photography:

#004 Sydney

For this, the 4th edition of the Global Photography feature, I decided to focus the viewfinder on the beautiful city of Sydney, Australia.

Sydney is the state capital of New South Wales and home to 4.6 million "Sydneysiders," making it the most populous city in Australia.




Breathtaking

Illustrations by

Loopydave.

I'm always excited when I come across a great illustrator, but this guy simply took my breath away.

Loopydave is a professional illustrator out of Australia. Almost all of his works start out as pencil sketches and are then painted in Photoshop. You can view his portfolio on his DeviantArt account here.




Dirty Car Art

There's something deeply pleasing to me about seeing art created in a temporary, here today gone tomorrow medium and these incredible works by Scott Wade are a perfect example. He creates his masterpieces in the dirt on cars and no sooner are they finished and photographed, the rain comes and washes it all away.

Scott lives on a mile and a half of dirt road which is comprised of a blend of limestone dust, clay and gravel resulting in a fine, whit dust coating all the cars in his neighbourhood...




Creative LEGO Ads

I'm a big fan of LEGO, I played with it as a kid, I collect the LEGO Star Wars kits as an adult and I love the way it encourages imaginative astuteness in children. In fact, the only thing I'm not a fan of is accidently standing on a piece!

As one of the world's biggest creative companies, you'd expect a certain level of creativity in their advisements and LEGO don't disappoint. In this post we'll be taking a look at the, often ingenious, print ads of the Danish organisation.

Mind-blowing Pencil

Sculptures

Using a pencil to create art is, of course nothing new, however carpenter, Dalton M. Ghetti has taken a slightly different approach.

The 49 year old said: "At school I would carve a friend's name into the wood of a pencil and then give it to them as a present. Later, when I got into sculpture, I would make these huge pieces from things like wood, but decided I wanted to challenge myself by trying to make things as small as possible...




Still Life

Comes Alive!

You'd be forgiven, at first for thinking these photographs were of canvas, skilfully adorned with acrylics to create some pretty nice still life portraits. They are, in fact, the unique works of Washington DC. Artist, Alexa Meade.

Alexa, skilfully and painstakingly applies her paint directly onto her subjects, transforming them into living works of art, to later be photographed.




Desktop Calendar

November

On the eve of each new month I produce a stylish desktop wallpaper with an integrated calendar for your convenience.
