Atelier Olschinsky  —> following list

Actually it was really hard for me to pick my favorites from this outstanding artwork of  the creative studio Atelier Olschinsky and after I saw the following list I was complety blown away. The studio is based in Vienna founded 2002 by Peter Olschinsky and Verena Weiss. To put ther work in just some adjectives ios quite impossible, but let me try: the art work is vivid, inspiring and futuristic with a huge story telling and because of the visual complexity the graphics seems fragile but at the same time the elements are balanced and gives our visual senses a strong impact.
That is what they say about themselves:
“It is just so important to work as much as you can, to learn and to be open to new things.
The journey is the award.” (Atelier Olschinsky)

Kurt Weidemann

May 7th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

“Kurt Weidemann, one of the most influential typographers of the 20th century, died at the age of 88 on March 31st, 2011. Weidemann helped form the identities of companies such as Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Zeiss, and Deutsche Bahn, changing their corporate designs not only for the better, but for the best. After returning from captivity as a prisoner of war in Russia, he took up a career in the fields of graphic design, typography, and moral courage that was second to none.Word came easily to him. His career did not.” (

Happy Meal Project

August 28th, 2010 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

The artist Sally Davies photographed one McDonald’s hamburger and fries every day for 137 days. I am baffled, as they look almost the same. Any type of organic substance would decompose with microbes from the air…not the Happy meal. You stomach might be stronger then microbes but i wouldnt say that its easy to digest this stuff. Think about this next time you wanna stop at the burger place..

Illustrations by ZSO

August 20th, 2010 // 1 Comment // Posted by Lukas

ZSO also known as Sara Blake does some amazing Illustration work. Last night i was watching Justin Mallers live transmition on ustream and he commented about her and led me to the site. Nice way of finding out about new stuff.. So anyway, she is truly talented and does some very cool stuff. Here´s what she writes on her about page:

“Hello, I’m ZSO. (On paper you may also know me as Sara Blake.) I’m an Interactive Art Director, Designer, and Illustrator living and loving in New York City.
ZSO (pronounced |zō|) is a collection of letters that I find aesthetically and phonetically beautiful. Together they make sound much like “so,” the adverb which means “to such a great extent.” I am a person of extremes, for better or worse (most often the latter), so the ring of it was fitting, and the moniker has since stuck for good.

See more of here work on her website ( and check out the interviews on dazed digital and thee blog (to name a few). By the way..thats her.

Mario Hugo / Beck – Modern Guilt

June 14th, 2010 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

Mario Hugo developed several verbal and non verbal concepts for the the album of Beck.
“I was asked to develop bold, iconic concepts for the latest Beck album. This verbal set went unused, though some concepts were later re-appropriated for the tour.”

Alex Trochut

December 11th, 2009 // 1 Comment // Posted by Andrea

So, get lifted by this guy from Spain, currently living in Barcelona. Alex Trochut is an independent designer and illustrator, who has design in his genes. I reckon he never draw childish pictures, when he was kid. His trees were almost a perfect copy of nature and when he wrote Mama the first time, he invented a new typography. Ok, jokes beside. I was mesmerized by his work and, in turn, I was engaged, surprised and touched by its variety and intensity. His Typography work is vivid and playful with intelligent patterns and merges with his illustration style. The phrase less is more becomes rightly useless in his interpretation of structures and compositions. Even though the work is so vivid, he found the pure form contained within itself.

His website link in your bookmark list is a must have >  Alex Trochut

Here some pieces of his Portfolio.
