Phil Wheeler Illustrations

Phil Wheeler IllustrationsA sweet but short portfolio of an illustrator who embodies a psychdelic style that borrows some aspects from Milton Glaser and George Dunning's (Yellow Submarine) earlier works—and sort of becomes a homage to the art of the era. Indeed, the work is comprised of a mesh of styles – part pop-art, part modern-retro, and part 60's drippy color rainbows – Phil "Freewheeling" Wheeler definitely puts the 'hip' in hippie when it comes to creating his illustrated pieces. Quite nice work from a UK-based artist.... More

Nicholas Deakin

Nicholas Deakin | IllustrationA quirky character illustrator originally from Yorkshire, England, Nicholas has offered his own take on his influences: "My work sights an aesthetic influenced by cartoon and street imagery. The remains of torn down fly posters and urban decay has prompted the worn and weathered surfaces I use as a vehicle for my drawings. I aim to contrast this disintegration of the surface with clean and naive imagery". Funny situations, great editorial work and funky typography will naturally follow.... More

Mutado

MutadoMutado is a renown, but small international firm whose work includes design, animation and interactive work – from brand-supporting print and advertising to online animations, motion design and illustrations. Strong at character work, online systems and games, Mutado's focus is to enable brands to interact with their clients. Which is why, in turn, it's not really a surprise when Mutado's own client list includes the likes of Comedy Central, MTV and Nickelodeon—brands well known for their pioneering use of animation and interaction. Great little site... simple, detail-oriented, and easy to use.... More

Murmures

Original web design? Surely an oxymoron! Au contraire. Manuel Mouillard has achieved this, several times over. This fun portfolio offers unique samples showcasing an individual style, as well as a novel use of music. This is very high praise (and we mean it) in a world of cookie-cutter design. Mouillard’s illustrations feel like teenage comic book drawings, and what’s lacking in fine art is acheived by true art –- offering a clear message visually. Turn down the volume if you must, but play with the site and samples. They play back.... More

More Than a Friend

More Than a FriendBased out of Montreal, More Than a Friend is a funky painting and illustrating collaboration between artists Krista Bursey and Jason Wasserman. The artists conceive all the ideas together, and then execute different areas of the project. Their mandate is creating experimental artwork that combines both artists’ respective skills and styles and usually revolves around a developed theme and exhibition context. We enjoyed how the pieces have an alternative, or occasionally "dark", feel to them — good conceptual ideas here.... More

Monsieur G

Monsieur GWhen you see most "urban" graphic design, it all seems so similar—as if the style was all copied from one book, designer and street corner. Not so with Monsieur G, who breaks down stereotypes with his illustrative style and a certain unique flair. There's just something a little different about this work that makes it stand out... which is exactly the right recipe for good design.... More

Mogollon

MogollonMogollon is collection of graphic design, production design, branding, illustration and motion graphics by a fresh, young duo who met while working on a film documentary for PS1/MoMa. They produce some interesting work spanning a range of media that has a youthful appeal and is still in a process of evolving. They even had a steaming series of music accessible from their site dubbed "Mogollon FM" which you can just click and play. These two are true kids of the multimedia age, getting their fingers messy in any way that they are able.... More

misprinted type

misprinted typeThe scratchy, dirty, hand-made portfolio of Eduardo Recife has been online since back in 1998, and this latest 3rd incarnation is just as rough and ecclectic as before. Spanning the spectrum from print to art, fonts, collage and mixed media, you can't help but being struck by the gentle, cherubic beauty behind the deceptively haphazard compositions. It's also one of the few portfolios where you don't want to miss the photography area... and lest we forget, there's also 19 free fonts to download. Brilliantly original, from end-to-end.... More

Milky Elephant

Milky ElephantMilky Elephant is a professional collective of three unique design artists based in New York. This collective consists of Karl Ackermann, Eun-Ha Paek and Mumbleboy (a.k.a. Kinya Hanada), who together make installations, games, illustrations, music videos, animated series, and artistically inspired designs. They work on an eclectic variety of funky projects spanning from toy design to viral interactive e-postcards that you've probably helped spread. Very quirky, often miniture and cute, it seems like they have a niche around being silly and youthful, which also shows in the variety of mediums they like to craft their projects (everything from coin purses to TV interstitials). Also check out The Milky Shop, the cool pink retro nav (that we really like) and the sites of the three design artists.... More
