Been awhile, been busy.
But this really fun site for Coca-Cola, Happiness Islands is enough to break me out of my slumber for awhile. This cool brand piece features a lot of fun sitelets (microsites) housed within the Internet Ocean. Totally worth playing around and wasting 10 or 15 min.
Gingerhaze’s AWESOME Avengers Illustrations
So Avengers is a pretty popular movie, what with all the explosions, heros, and smashing. It seems that illustrator Gingerhaze aka Noelle Stevenson is a fan because she has created an incredible series of Avengers illustrations.
Check out more of her work on her site, she is incredibly talented and i’m excited to see more of her work.
Check out the awesome collage illustrations of Cristiana Couceiro. They have a very cool retro feel and her use of icons and bold shapes really compliments the photography. Her illustrations have a graphic simplicity and impact that can be lost in more complicated collage style. I’m a fan!
Mad Men Issue of Newsweek
