Simplest IPad sleeve

emoticon rubber stamp

Designed by Gingami for Gung, this analog approach to emoticons offers over 2,000 variations of expression for the digital soul. It’s brilliant when creativity is illustrated by means of taking the New World back into the Old. Ah, such a rarity. Available at about USD30.00 from May 21 onwards. (- o – )

One Lyric, Hot Letters

This project is called “Music Philosophy” and it is a rather excellent clash of brilliantly written lyrics and typography. Design of this caliber is often reserved for paying customers, but Mico Toledo does this project as a hobby. The closest this project has come to the physical plane is some printed versions of the posters and a painting project on the wall of a friend’s apartment. Fab!

Seen On The Streets Of Antwerp, Belgium

Beautiful street art from Steve Locatelli in Antwerp, Belgium

Ghost Girl

Ghost Girl was born out of two loves, the female form (specifically the face), and the Ms. Pac-Man video game (specifically the ghosts). Originally two separate designs that were combined out of experimentation, the end result proved to be iconic and widely recognizable. Derived from street artist Matt Siren’s classic two dimensional graphic representation, Ghost Girl comes to life in vinyl form as three dimensional character art.{via}

Popville Pop-Up Book

Popville is a pop-up book in which each page corresponds to a moment of the city development. Some urban and landscape elements remain constant references for the growth of the city, while others simply disappear and make place to new ones. A fun book to flip through or leave out on the coffee table, you can pick up a copy for only $11 here. There's also little video on Amazon so you can see how book looks when you flip the pages.
