Sergio Alves is a designer from Portugal with some nice work. Thanks for the link!
Mihail Mihaylov has a nice Flickr set up of his typographic/illustrative works. He’s 24 years old from Bulgaria.
Josh White recently got in touch with his newly designed site. Another talented grad from the University of Brighton.
I found this amazing video by Bang-Yao Liu via Font Feed that is a must-see for everyone.
He contrasted African time to European time and also to Asian time. He said that in the 19th century, mankind had come to terms with space, and that the great question of the 20th was the coexistence of the different concepts of time.
I don’t encounter very much Japanese design on the web, especially design from the early 20th century. So much of Japan seems hidden. That being said, here’s an amazing collection of book and magazine covers from that era.
I’m really impressed with all the work coming out of the University of Brighton recently. They just sent us an email with a link to GDI’09, a website showcasing work from the 2009 graduates of BA(Hons) Graphic Design & BA(Hons) Illustration. There’s mounds of great work there. Check them out on Vimeo as well.
Some beautiful, classic typographic book covers and jackets by David Pearson.
