This is the amazing office of the “Country Road” Australian brand. You can see creativity flourishing around the place. Look at the colour library and the designers working on their mood-boards!
I have a soft spot for lived offices, places you can see are being used to think and create and not just to look pretty. Not much different from a real home.
Read the interview of their creative director, Sophie Holt at The Design Files.
Just do it.
Miles “MAC” MacGregor was born in 1980 at Los Angeles. His primary focus has been the lifelike rendering of human faces and figures. In the mid ’90s, he began to work with graffiti painting and since then developed his signature portrait style. With a brilliant work (wich you can see here), some of his murals have become local landmarks. His intent is “to uplift and inspire through careful, perfectionist renderings of both the sublime and the humble.” This video was another amazing portrait painting, now in the “Art San” space, at Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
José Azevedo is a brazilian art director and illustrator. He worked in some advertising agencies, in Vitória and São Paulo, between 2003 and 2009. Nowadays, he is a freelancer and is back to Vitória, his hometown, working for clients of all segments. At first sight, I was impressed by his sketchbook, wich is amazing, then I looked at his advertising portfolio and had another good surprise. Now, I’m his fan.

This amazing commercial film, for Samsung Galaxy SII, is a demonstration of a art called finger Tutting. The dance is performed by JayFunk, from LA, and seriously: he’s very good. The art direction and production is from Labandeoriginale and the post production is from motionfanclub. Really impressive and well done. The kind of commercial you want to see again.
