New MTV Summer identity by Rachel Falkenbach

Raquel Falkenbach is one of those very talented people whose works are very influential are a milestone in design. One of her latest projects, alongside Rio de Janeiro based BEELD, was a brilliant piece for Brazilian MTV. Their new summer identity is just amazing, vibrant palette and illustrations that resemble the sea depth, the new identity is beyond doubt young and innovative. Definitely a thumbs up!

Beautiful Animation – My Family and the Wolf

You guys must see this beautiful animation by Nectarious Films, well, that’s actually only the trailer but I can hardly wait to see the full piece. It feels like you are reading one of those children’s books. Very colorful and vibrant, and you can see the story is very catching as well. Definitely a must see!

Minja Lee

This premature south-korean artist will certainly be in the known very soon. Only 19 years old and doing an amazing work! Find more info on the text below copied from the original post at The Cool Hunter:

Minjae Lee is a young South Korean artist whose work expresses a semi-disturbing inner tension that is tough to ignore, even if you feel that you’d like to. It draws you in with its powerful colors, halting imagery and clever juxtaposition of beauty, innocence and fragility with brash, loud and aggressive. The 19-year old artist is mainly self-taught and uses old-fashioned tools — such as markers, pens, crayons, acrylics — to create his illustrations. He has yet to break into commercial success, but as his style is developing and improving each time new images appear, we will likely see a lot of him in the future. What characterizes his work overall is drama. The ethereal females that populate most of his work exude a dark, organic tension, and it seems that even the brightest marker colors do not quite manage to save them from some sort of looming peril. Or are we, the viewers, in fact, the ones who are in danger? Whatever the case, we are drawn in, interacting on an emotional level, surprised, looking for something. Minjae Lee’s penchant for dramatic expression is clear also in the work of those he admires. His favorite photographer is the 55-year-old Japanese Hiroshi Nonami, whose women are equally capable of telling a dramatic, dark story. Not surprisingly, Lee’s favorite fashion designer is the king of runway drama, the Gibraltar-born, 49-year-old John Galliano.” – Tuija Seipell

 

Great Street art in Brazil

Inspired by a discussion with my dear Priscila Jansen from Blog Cosmopolita (http://cosmopolita-arq.blogspot.com/) who was recently in Argentina and presented me  with some nice street art she found there, I decided to go looking for some nice colorful street art ‘home’ made here in Brazil. I’ve been paying special attention to street artists for a while now. I think their style and repertoire have been shaping today’s graphic culture, well that actually has been happening since the 60s and 70s with Keith Haring and Basquiat who mainly came out of the streets. Contemporary names include Banksy(!), Os Gêmeos and many others. Today you can find many of them in renowned museums like Guggenhein and MoMA.
