Yehrin Tong definitely makes my shortlist for creative typographers and all around insane graphic designers. Visit Tong’s site and you will immediately try to bookmark it, unfortunately your head will have already exploded making this task quite difficult.
When I came across Alex Ostrowski’s portfolio I instantly wished I hadn’t. Not because it was bad, because it was life-changingly good and I had so much to do that morning. Do yourself a favour and take the time to look at everything on the site – it is one of the most inspiring collections of design work I have stumbled upon. http://www.alexostrowski.com/

Our friend Luke Ramsey’s latest mural is part of the Create Community Colour Mural Program, a project that aims to beautify 6 graffiti hotspots around Victoria, British Columbia as well as provide mentorship between established artists and the city’s youth. With the help of aspiring artists Jocelyn Zhao and Sarah Jim, Luke created a piece that isn’t just about painting over things we deem ugly and imposing our ideas of what is beautiful. The finished product not only incorporates pre-existing tags but actually includes “invited taggers” — artists Shawn O’Keefe and Erik Volet — challenging graffiti’s tradition of tagging and territory by offering a different kind of representation and space for inclusion.
