Bugmania

To finish off the year I thought I would share a short series of macro images taken outside my back door at home in New Zealand. For all these shots I have used my Nikon D3 with a basic 55mm f2.8 manual lens. It was pretty tricky getting such a short focus range to work with the manual focus but I was very pleased with the results. As always I have had a bit of fun processing the images in Lightroom.

Love that MF 55mm. The short working distance can certainly be a handicap, but it’s sharp sharp sharp.

Minimal Typography | By Nick Barclay
Minimal Typography | By Nick Barclay

by Andrew Smith June 22, 2019

Graphic Designer Nick Barclay has decided to pay tribute to cities and their 3 favorite colors through his minimal poster series 'Three Colors Cities'. For the city of New York, the yellow is reminiscent of the color of the taxis, the green is for the Statue of Liberty and the gray refers to the skyscrapers. On the poster of London, we find the red buses and phone booths. You get the idea, it's a fantastic and highly stylish use of the Swiss design style. The approach is something worth bookmarking if you need some killer typography examples.

Illustration Design | By Leroy van Drie

Leroy van Drie used a clever combination of photography and illustration to create this high impact campaign for the Encore music scene in Amsterdam. The campaign visuals represent the hip-hop and R&B culture and translate both movement and rhythm into static poster designs. The carefully overlaid doodles and typography give a distinctly creative and human element to the work. The visual energy is a great way to help captures the viewers attention.
