I was first drawn to Deanna Cheuk’s work because of her beautifully done, illustrative typography. But I’m also in love with her illustrations from the book, Mushroom Girls Virus. She also is founder of the smallest magazine in the world, neomu. Obselete from the magazine are advertising or words, but instead it is full of images, graphics and photography, a result of a collaborative effort of emerging artists worldwide. And if you didn’t think it got any better, proceeds of the tri-annual magazine go to global charities.

Amsterdam-based designer Arjan Groot has not only a great portfolio, but his web site is simple and innovative.
On our way back to the States, we had a lay-over in the brand spankin’ new Terminal 5 at London’s Heathrow Airport. Now after the Naomi Campbell incident occurring just a few days before, I was hoping operations were running smoother. Eh. Wishful thinking.
All lost luggage and glitches aside, few can deny its architectural beauty that uses more glass than one can even fathom. Infographics galore, however I am a critic of the use of silhouettes while the official airport signage is in black and yellow. I personally really liked the interior of the restrooms that used a dark wood contrasted with silver and its super high powered hand dryers. Although our lay over was a good 2 hours, I could of stayed there are about 3 more.
(side note: yes, 6 of the 19 passengers in our group lost their luggage, of those, 2 got their luggage lost on the way there AND back. oh and did I mention we sat in the airplane for nearly 2 hours before even leaving the runway? ah, the joys of traveling.)
