Chris Burnett is a BFA3 student at CalArts in the Graphic Design program. He already has a portfolio that shows a tremendous amount of maturity and an attention to typography that most veteran designers would be jealous of. It’s a safe bet to keep an eye on this young man because is going to go far.
I am just going to come out with it and say that Sam Weber is probably my favorite if not one of my most favorite illustrators out there today. His work not only inspires me but just connects with me on some deeper level. I just think the things he creates are totally beautiful.
He just moved into a new work space in Brooklyn and is looking for a couple of people to share the space with him. He also has some new, and as always remarkable work in his portfolio. He continues to be a huge inspiration.
M S Corley revised some of his favorite books as retro Penguin classics and each and every cover is a unique and inspiring work of graphic design. Good stuff.
Smashing Magazine has compiled an interesting collection of book covers for your inspiration. The list also includes the Shepard Fairey cover to 1984 that I blogged about earlier today.
