Very often innovation comes from school workshops. Here is an interesting packaging project made by a design student, Norbert Mayer, for three medication products of a same family. I appreciated much the union of a minimal design, made of simple graphic elements, and the choice of a full yellow instead of the classical white (as normally used for this kind of packs) combined with the idea of white grids of dots and lines representing the respective organs treated. I found this project interesting for its countertrend conception of a particular type of pack, not so used to changings.

Traditional gelato shovels, experience, quality, and taste, theese are the root-concepts of this elegant and traditional gelateria in Guangzhou, China, ‘Shovel & Bell‘. “While we wanted our brand to reflect quality and luxury, we also wanted to bring out the childish side of people” (identitydesigned.com). Tasty and inspiring. Yuhm!

The airplane’s tail becomes the inspiring shape for the redesign of the eagle, with a blue wing and a red one, and a silver beak. The previous mark is completely reinvented: the eagle is not in a hunt position, it’s flying forward, a more positive meaning. On the tail of the plane, red and blue velocity stripes give the impression that the plane is flying fast even when is grounding. Stars are abandoned in order not to give the old connotation of “indipendence day”, instead the designers at Futurebrand wanted to convey the values of technology, progress, and entertainment, as they much properly describe America in the opinion of other countries’ people.

You can have a dream by the hands of a talented illustrator, a dream made of ink and color, a timelapse of contemplation while your eyes follow the movements of a pen on a white canvas or the colors expanding one step at a time. The nickname of this young “sandman” is Elfandiary, and here is his diary: elfandiary.tumblr.com.

Anthony Neil Dart is a skilled and self-taught South African designer whose work goes from graphic design and illustration to movie and music production. In his beautiful works I found a surprising balance between typographical elements, photography, digital painting and illustration. Staring at those graphic compositions gives you the same feeling as if you were listening to good music. Last year he expressed himself like this, interviewed by Tara Hornor, questioned about creativity: “I think what inspires creative people manifests itself in their work — the artifacts and shrapnel of all that is digested and then poured out for the viewer to discover, little codes and secret languages.” (from Thinkdesignblog).
