Hypnotize Art
Yehrin Tong
Typography / March 30, 2015

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.

Alex Ostrowski
Designer / March 30, 2015

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/

“Calligraphy Blanket” by Drury Brennan
Typography / March 27, 2015

Loving this Calligraphy Blanket designed by Drury Brennan. It reads: “In life, it is essential to be comfortable. To snuggle up with a puppy or loved one is a rare occurrence in an increasingly cold world. Get warm, stay warm – Open yourself up to true moments of joy.” Isn’t that beautiful?

Community Colour Mural by Artist Luke Ramsey
Graffiti / March 20, 2015

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. Check out more images below!
