Serial Cut is a creative studio established in 1999 by Sergio del Puerto that focuses on art direction, graphic design and illustration. Based in Madrid, Spain, Serial Cut’s work chock-full of design goodness. The work above, is a compliation of the best tv content from Channel 4, a tribute to the best performers, stars and tv shows interpreted by different artists around the world. The double page spread commissioned to Serial Cut was the “11 o’clock show,” who also did the type selection for the lovely cover. For something as corporate as a television station, I love how the art direction is much more experimental than expected.

Erica Jacobson is Stockholm-based graphic designer and illustrator with a fondness for expressive, painterly strokes in her artwork and typography. Quite lovely in my opinion. Especially the identity and stationary above for The Anna Lindh Memorial Fund.
Simplicity=Strength. This is the statement on his homepage and I couldn’t agree more. Eric Smith is the mastermind behind the freelance studio known is IDAD (IDRAWALLDAY) that creates intriguing, simple solutions for his clients. The “Live Now” poster series above, were created in response to Eric’s recent diagnosis with cancer and the proceeds from purchasing them go to the Live Strong Foundation. Each are impactful typographic solutions that communicate strong statements about his path to recovery. We wish him the best of luck!
Hvass&Hannibal is a young Danish design duo comprising of the two childhood friends Nan Na Hvass & Sofie Hannibal. Their illustration style reminds me of cut out construction paper and their use of bright, fun colors in abstract forms really appeal to me. Be sure to check out an interview with them in the new issue of Print Magazine.
