Beach House Design | Architecture By John Irving

This dream style beach house is located in New Zealand on Waiheke Island, the site design plays a careful balance between private and public spaces. The sheltered private courtyard is the showpiece of this property. The small but cozy space has been masterfully crafted to connect with the indoor layout. The exterior materials of stone, timber and black steel is a winning combination - giving it a timeless, rustic and approachable feel. This home stands out (not just because of the location) but for the distinct low key and relaxing vibe it creates. People are drawn into the space, this is testament to John Irving’s experience and class as an architect.

Designers: Studio John Irving
Location: Oneroa, Waiheke Island, New Zealand.

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
Illustration Design | By Leroy van Drie

by Andrew Smith June 18, 2019

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.
