Oslo-based design firm Heydays has updated with what I believe to be a new website and lots of good looking new print and branding work. It’s a good week for graphic design apparently.

I don’t usually blog about other blogs but let’s face it most of what is out there on blogs is being generated by other blogs, email submission, tweets and really in totality the exchange of electronic media. It’s cyclical. What it’s starting to come down to is what some of my friends like to call ‘content Djaying’ or in other words ‘curation’.

Visual Journal is a blog run by Oslo-based Swedish Graphic Designer Joakim Jansson who works as a senior designer at the multi-disciplinary agency Bleed. He’s relatively new on the ‘content DJaying’ scene but I really like the tracks he is laying down so far.

The above image is comes from the studio work of Teacake.

kristianhammerstad.jpg

Illustrator Kristian Hammerstad has an old school pulp comic style combined with a skater punk zombie aesthetic tipped off with a good dose of humor. It’s an extremely likeable combination of elements that comes together so seamlessly that you almost forget the skill and craft required to generate such fun imagery.

Oslo-based designer Fredrik Melby has some curious and beautiful images in his Behance-folio. If you can’t get enough there you an also view his work via his studio website at Anti-ink. Why the name ‘Anti-ink’? I don’t honestly know but I suspect it may be that Melby is proud to be a digital designer.

It appears that the crazy kids behind ‘Oh Yeah‘ have updated their site with all kinds of newness. I don’t know what is going down in Oslo but it sure looks like a good time. There is an enormous amount of work on the site and it is all pretty quality.

Just a squirrel in this world trying to get an oil covered diamond.
