The Windows of New York project is a weekly illustrated fix for an obsession that has increasingly grown in José Guizar since chance put him in that town. A product of countless steps of journey through the city streets, this is a collection of windows that somehow have caught his restless eye out from the never-ending buzz of the city. This project is part an ode to architecture and part a self-challenge to never stop looking up. José Guizar is a Graphic Designer living in New York City. To see more of his wok, go here.

I just love this project, called Missed Connections, and the wonderful illustrations by Sophie Blackall.
“Messages in bottles, smoke signals, letters written in the sand; the modern equivalents are the funny, sad, beautiful, hopeful, hopeless, poetic posts on Missed Connections websites. Every day hundreds of strangers reach out to other strangers on the strength of a glance, a smile or a blue hat. Their messages have the lifespan of a butterfly. I’m trying to pin a few of them down.” If you’d like to purchase some of her prints, go here.

PressPausePlay, directed by David Dworsky and Victor Köhler, is a documentary film focusing on the democratization of culture and raises the question if that development will automatically lead to better art, film, music and literature or if true talent instead is flooded and drowned in the vast digital ocean of mass culture? Is it cultural democracy or mediocrity?

You can download this quite beautifully made movie here.

Tree of Life is a lovely poster and a beautiful idea. At first, it just seems to be a “fingerprint” of a tree, but at a closer look one can see that the rings are made of tiny animals, all dependent on their living space, the rainforest. The poster, designed by Gary, Aaron & Khairul, is available for $45 at degree.

Just came across those lovely illustrations by the Toronto based designer Dave Murray. I like how he is creating a tree diminutional look by reducing the object to a complex polygon pattern. I can recommend visiting Murray’s website to see more of his great work.
