BVD has recently updated their website and portfolio with some absolutely inspiring work. It’s an equally inspiringly designed website as well.

If you can make 711 look that good. Well…

At this point you could call Un.titled a ‘classic’ contemporary graphic design firm.

Trüf is a Santa Monica based creative studio ‘obsessed with designing better brands’. It looks like they pointed that obsession first at themselves with some excellent branding work for their own studio.

The Windows of New York project is a weekly illustrated fix for an obsession that has increasingly grown in me since chance put me in this town. A product of countless steps of journey through the city streets, this is a collection of windows that somehow have caught my restless eye out from the never-ending buzz of the city. This project is part an ode to architecture and part a self-challenge to never stop looking up.

I am a Graphic Designer living in New York City. I’m into all kinds of visual things, sharing good stuff with great people, and apparently, staring creepily at windows.”

A project by Jose Guizar.

We Buy Your Kids have been on fire lately in my opinion. They have found their style and nestled themselves firmly and confidently within it. They recently did an entire show for the Mondo Gallery in Austin, Texas and I managed to snag a few of the posters. They didn’t get their fair share of love from the poster collecting scene in my opinion but it’s a crowd relatively unaccustomed to contemporary graphic design which is definitely where WBYK leans. I dig it. I dig it big time.

Been a long long time since I dropped in on ole Siggi but it’s always rewarding to check in on what he’s been up to. I am absolutely loving this new image for Little White Lies cover about last year’s film ‘The Master’.

Aerosynlex has updated recently with some colorful and energetic new project work. His portfolio is definitely wild and imbued with a kinetic energy. It’s always fun to drop in and check out what he’s doing.

There is a wild body of imagery in the portfolio of Soemone who’s real name is Pierre Doucin. He is a member of the KDU and while his personal work is definitely the heart of his portfolio he does have some fun commercial work on display as well.

There has been some updates at I am Always Hungry since I last dropped in a long while back. I am still and have always been inspired by the portfolio of the author and designer behind the site Nessim Higson. They continue to represent from New Orleans and are always worth keeping an eye on.

Artists Inspire Artists has a fantastic collection of icon design for your viewing inspiration. Icon Design is something I’ve held a particular fascination for since the introduction and deep penetration (so rare you can use that phrase in a serious context) of touch screen technology in our lives. This collection exemplifies just how much craft goes into generating these tiny but amazingly detailed images.

Austin-based designer and illustrator Nathan Walker is deft with the vector graphics and has some amazing projects in his Behance-folio including some projects he has art directed that are equally fantastic. He also goes by the name ‘All The Pretty Colors’.
