I discovered the work of Steve Wolf via Dribbble, and I particularly love his logo design and illustration style. It’s been awhile since I’ve posted just logos, so I thought I’d share some today. Wolf’s style combines vintage elements and modern techniques. Enjoy!

Noirvé is the one-woman design studio of Vanessa Gonzales. I was initially drawn to a branding piece Gonzales did for a bakery, funny because as I learned from her bio- being a pastry chef was her first love! Below is that project, along with a few others. Enjoy!

For personal projects and posters, (and a very other things in between…) I’ve been loving the font resources on Creative Market. Illustrative, display type is sort of my favorite genre anyway, (probably due to the fact that I never really ever get to use it). Below are a few fonts I’m really into right now. Click on the images to learn more about each font.

Today I bring you the artwork of Nancy Ramirez. I love the mix of abstract and pattern in her work, as well as the very graphic nature of all her pieces. As she describes her work,
“I’m fascinated with both traditional and digital methods of creating art, as a result much of my artwork often combines these two unlikely mediums. I get a thrill out of mixing colorful fragments derived from abstract paintings with digital work as well as photography. I love how hand painted shapes and textures create unexpected contrasts against the sharp predictability of digital design.”
Below are a few of my favorites from her portfolio. Enjoy!

Yelena Bryksenkova is a British-based, Russian-born, and U.S educated freelance illustrator, who describes her work as being inspired by her love of home and the comfort of everyday objects, as well as more magical, mysterious and melancholy themes. Her use of pattern and color reminds be a bit of a folk art aesthetic- which I love. Below are a few of my favorites from her portfolio. Enjoy!

As they describe themselves, “Oddds stands for Our Daily Dose of Design Shenanigans. We are the pairings of the coffee addict meets the music junkie, one holds the camera, the other holds the good-old mouse (we take turns). Wanderlust of adventures, enthusiasts of food, observers of unconventional, believers of aesthetics. We believe that art & craft are the two amalgamations of good design.” I particularly loved their Salt and Wood Zine, and The Edible Dust Anthology project, posted below. Enjoy!
