Tatiana Plakhova

New illustrations by Tatiana Plakhova from Moscow. If you haven’t seen her work you might want to check out some of her other projects, including complexity graphics.

Thomas Traum has designed 25 amazing 3D renderings for this years “Most Beautiful Swiss Books” in collaboration with Carl Burgess and Laurenz Brunner.

The way Traum’s 3D kitsch interplay with Brunner’s occult-like multi-column layout works rather nicely. The overall effect – glossy renderings opposite dense blackness – feels appropriate for something that can risk being perversely self referential.

If I could only find a copy of Bryce 3D…maybe all these American design annuals would be a little more interesting.

I’m loving this site design for Deconstruction Records by Kleber out of the UK. The site is based from their new identity by Farrow. Via Visuelle.

Tae Won Yu

17 August 2010

One of my earliest influences in design is none other than Tae Won Yu. His work for the Olympia, WA music scene circa the 90′s showed me design could be both playful and expressive. Looking at his work challenged me to break down boundaries I was taught in school. From Built to Spill’s ‘Perfect From Now On’ to Versus latest release, ‘On the One’s and Threes’, Tae continues to remind me why I love to do what I do.
