Breaking Bad Poster Series

October 7th, 2013



For the final episode of AMC’s Breaking Bad show, I created these two posters of Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). If you’ve seen the show you’d immediately recognize the blue as a representation of Walter’s high-purity methamphetamine. Without spoiling the show, you’ll notice there is more blue crystal on Pinkman’s face than there is on Walt’s. In that lies the concept of these posters. The posters were created for fun using only a few images.

Balsa Wood Pixel Art Sculptures by Shawn Smith

September 24th, 2013



Shawn Smith is the artist behind these fantastic, pixel-ish looking sculptures. Each is painted using acrylic paint over top short sticks of balsa or bass wood on edge. What surprised me most about these pieces is that they’re very dimensional. If you look at them from the plane they sit on you can see exactly what I’m talking about. Definitely check out more of Shawn’s work on his website.

Ever since BVD released their awesome 7-Eleven rebrand I’ve had my eye on their portfolio. BVD’s newest project, for Reitan, was a design new packaging for 7-Eleven’s sandwiches. The best part about this design is that it’s type only. No other useless graphic elements creating clutter in the design.

Sculptures Made from Stainless Steel Ribbons by Gil Bruvel

May 30th, 2013




Gil Bruvel a Texas based artist, is the creator of these remarkable stainless steel sculptures. Though I’m not sure exactly how these are made, it appears that he molds the shape initially using clay or a plaster and then casts the form in stainless steel.

…with each ribbon, the eye bends, curves, assembles, deforms, and traces the edges of each subject. The ribbons direct my emotions and creative flow with a force like I have never felt before. The smaller ones are subtle-the larger ones are essential, but they all flow together to create one being. The multiple patterns of the lines effectively illustrate the multifaceted parts of what makes us human.

Designspiration Job Board

April 29th, 2013

I’ve been working non-stop over the last few months to get new features live for Designspiration. One of these features is the Job Board. The goal of the job board is to help creatives find career opportunities, check it out.

There were a number of challenging aspects of building this addition, but the main one was how to handle mobile. It’s not something I’ve done a whole lot of and just to complicate things, a new grid needed to be developed for the updates following this one. The restructuring of the grid took just about as much time to figure out as it did to build the job board itself.

If you know an agency or company looking to hire, please let them know about the job board. Also, follow the Designspiration jobs twitter @Dspnjobs for job updates.
