Deutsche & Japaner, a design studio created in 2009 and responsible for some great branding pieces including Bruno Mars logotype, took part in FLAGS, an exhibition at the ABOUT Independent Publishing Fair in Mainz.

The flag they designed was one of my favourites for it’s use of shapes and colours, but all the flags are pretty impressive. Check them out if you get a chance.

I came upon these images about a month ago and bookmarked them but never got around to posting them. Or a lot of things really. My goal is to be more attentive to this blog, so with that, get excited about these roommates whose Freezer notes escalated into fantastic art. More after the jump.

Talented Illustration designer Jasper Goodall made this short film about Sanna Annukka and her new autumn/winter collection for Marimekko called Pohjolassa. I’m a huge fan of patterns and have always enjoyed symmetry but lately have been pushing myself in Illustrator. As far as the Adobe suite goes, Illustrator still isn’t my strongest and I’ve learned a lot in 2012 with it.

I’m currently working with a client on her brand refresh and going over bag designs these last couple weeks, been a great experiment in pattern making. I’d love a chance to make wallpaper or textiles like these down the road.

Filed under Too-Good-to-Be-True, artist Denis Medri has regularly shared with us alternate visions of my two favourite universes, Batman and Star Wars. I’m not kidding when I say, apart from the Buffy-verse, nothing compels me more than these mythologies. The only two video games for X-Box I play regularly are Arkham City (third or fourth time around at this point) and The Force Unleashed Series (twice through each). Here he’s shown us Batman if it took place in Grease territory (Greasers!) and Star Wars (original trilogy) if they were in an ’80s teen movie. FYI, he’s also introduced us to Western/Samurai Epic Star Wars, also worth a lookie-loo.

Returning for their second solo show at Subtext, these seasoned creators will guide us on a voyage through their past, present, and everything in between to find out what makes them happy.
