GOLD STAR Ah! Cutest project. Ever noticed that the world likes to pair a short, somewhat rotund character with a more slender, taller character? Andrew documents this recurring trend in an ongoing series of wooden figures. Check more out here.

LAURA BERGLUND

GOLD STAR Laura has a really strong portfolio with a collection of projects with great concepts. My favorite project of hers is the one featured here. This project titled, Anchor, is a campaign that helps student act as their own security force by allowing necessities such as reporting crimes, contacting security, knowing the facts, and staying aware of their surroundings.

BOARDING PASS/FAIL

GOLD STAR Airline boarding pass designs sometimes are so bad you can’t find the departure time to save your life. So, Tyler Thompson is fed up with crappy boarding passes and has taken initiative to design his own.

NOMA BAR

GOLD STAR Noma Bar is an illustrator who’s capable of brilliantly using negative space. Kudos. I just got his newest book in the mail yesterday. I almost peed in my pants when I saw the cover. Do you see the coffin, dog, cat, AND mouse? I love how the spine of the book is also the dog collar.

BREANNE

GOLD STAR Breanne has a portfolio filled with some really awesome work and some pretty nifty silkscreened wallpaper. This project is my fav. “My work celebrates normative experiences via 1980s – 1990s popular culture, domesticity, cute, kitsch and the culture of collecting. It shares triumphant moments of youth and adulthood and oftentimes reveals the dark and embarrassing ones, too.” -Breanne

PENNY SMASH

GOLD STAR This is a project by Motherbrand that explores the social and cultural function of souvenirs. They asked Douglas Coupland, Marian Bantjes, Burton Kramer, and Paul Butler to create designs for the pennies. This one featured here is by the brilliant, Marian Bantjes. Sadly, these pennies are only available at the Gladstone Hotel in downtown Toronto. Me likeee.
