ANTRUM Installation, Moscow

I was browsing Behance when I came across this gorgeous installation. As a part of exhibition Life Zone at M’ARS Contemporary Art Center in Moscow, ANTRIUM allows visitors to interact with natural, mathematically formed “creatures” by pressing into a membrane like screen that they live on.

Tomorrow Never Knows Lyrics by the Beatles

“Tomorrow Never Knows” in Matilda

Another lyric in another one of my favorite fonts, Matilda by Noe Araujo. “Tomorrow Never Knows” by the Beatles and covered by a few other artists, this song always had a special meaning to me. I hear from it not to be afraid of disconnecting sometimes, which is so hard to do yet such a necessity. I like the free-form, unapologetic strokes of this casual font and how it illustrates the message of the song so well.

Inspirational Starbucks Reserve Packaging Design

Starbucks Reserve Collection Packaging

Starbucks is a favorite of mine when it comes to design inspiration. I’m also a coffee addict so their attention to good design and great coffee has always captured my imagination and satisfied my need for caffein in a tasteful way.

In an article written about the Designers Inspiration Behind the Reserve Packaging, Mike Peck, director for Starbucks Creative is quoted in saying “Our goal was to create packaging that offered the same qualities as the Roastery itself, we wanted it to have the same mercantile feeling, reflecting a fresh, small-lot, premium offering.”

I’m in love with the bright colors and the use of printing techniques such as gold foils and mixed media illustrations. It’s interesting to see such a robust collection of artwork that all follows a common thread and stays within the Starbucks branding.
