ill Studio has some typographic marvels over at their website including this piece from the 2007 illuminati exhibition at the Lazy-Dog gallery in Paris. I’ve found myself overly drawn to the white-on-white text look with only shadows to spell the words and this is a beautiful piece of balance and form with all the type chosen. It’s also hard not to get excited at how well they can work their logo into a piece, it’s my dream to make logo’s that work so well one day.
La Boca is an independent design circus based in Portobello, West London. They specializing in art & design for the film, music and fashion industries, all industries I’m really excited about but it’s their work on limited edition vinyl record sleeves that I have especially enjoyed.

Love this picture, gives me a flashback to the video I made about 14 months ago.
“This is the Man” embodying a tough, classic, handsome, and intelligent person featured in a button up dress shirt, in bunny ears stating “Man Should Be Brave,” and in a trench and boots stating “Eat Meat. Dress Well.” The French Connection Manifesto states, “Men have lost the ungentle art of manliness. The man in the street doesn’t know what to bring to a knife fight. He gets nervous around large fish. He can’t tie a full Windsor. Men have forgotten how to snap a bra open with a click of their fingers—women are undoing their own bras to save time! Meanwhile guys are eating little portions of leaves and putting too much gel in their hair. They are wearing t-shirts with dope leaves and robots on them when they are over 22 years-old.”
