A-Side Studio

A-Side StudioA-Side Studio is a print, identity and illustration firm whose focus is on creating dynamic branding communication. They design everything from t-shirts, to advertisements, web sites, posters, and even pencil cases for their growing international client base. They also art direct Stranger and September magazines. They have been acclaimed, but also claim to do clean, clear and concise. Then they turn around and produce something gritty and belligerent. Who says they have to make up their minds?... More

A-Side Studio

Also

AlsoAlso was formed when an animator, an illustrator and a graphic designer joined forces, so their services cover the spectrum from interactive Flash websites to animated commercials to some hip and trendy print ads. While you may not recognize many of their clients, you should be jealous of their unique and attractive approach to designing websites... it's an artistic approach that many larger firms can no longer sell to their clients – even though deep down inside, it's what they all wish they could do....

Andrew Rae

Andrew RaeThe thing we like most about posting up a tasty illustration site on the holidays; digging into the deep quirky mind of an good illustrator is like reaching into a never-ending stocking stuffer, or a spinning a 26-sided dradle... You always come up with some kind of golden goodie! Especially so in this portfolio of Andrew Rae from the UK, who specializes in compositions of characters, animals and people in unconventional and fantastic situations. He also has a thing for electronic audio equipment, knobs and buttons. Dig in, because this full-time illustrating elf doesn't skimp on the giving all year 'round.... More

Arthur Mount Illustration

Arthur Mount IllustrationWith a hybrid style sharing digital and hand drawn methods, Arthur Mount has developed an aesthetic that captivates with its simple subtitles. His subjects cover all ranges, from inanimate objects to landscapes to remarkable renderings of celebrities. Dead-on accuracy and bountiful samples is easily the most impressive feature of the site. All that, and he still possess one of the best tag names in the business: Art Mount Sounds like a product already on the market and it's truly a deal.... More

Ashi Portfolio

Ashi PortfolioCrisp, clean and designed from head-to-toe, Ashi (the illustrator behind Football Heros) gives us one of our favorite overall portfolio designs. The wood-based veneer from this gifted illustrator displays a set of small interactive sketchbooks that we can easily flip through to sample some fantastic illustrations, print work, font design, drawings and more. It's so perfect - it immediately gives us an idea of his talent - it's almost like a package where the wrapping is just as good as the contents... We don't even want to undo the ribbon.... More

Audrey Kawasaki

Audrey KawasakiApparently 'bedroom eyes' are the Digitalthread of the day, as can be explored in the themes in Audrey Kawasaki's illustrated and painted works of both innocent and erotic women. Audrey's precise technical style - influenced by both manga comics and Art Nouveau - draws us to a subject that is attractive yet subtely disturbing. Sharp graphic imagery of soft forms combined with the natural grain of the wood panels she paints on, bring a certain warmth to this curious, sensual and enigmatic subject matter. 'Njoy.... More

BBQ Box

In a world full of corporate branding and identity, here's an guy walking the walk just for the heck of it. Eric Cheung (aka BBQ Wing) is a graphic designer, and he's created this site because. . . hey, he wanted to. It's an expression of thoughts and ideas, all in some pretty awesome Flash animations. Think "sharing," not "selling." The site is populated with little animated alter egos of the artist to guide you around. We feel good about this.... More

Bill McMullen

Bill McMullenWhere popular culture and urban street art meet is where you will find Bill McMullen, a New York design talent who got his start putting together club and show flyers while he was in school in San Diego, California. Here, at his portfolio, you will find an eclectic mix of mashed-up street art, pop culture, apparel and graphic design. Previously designing hip-hop albums at Def Jam's design subsidiary "The Drawing Board" for three years, Bill more recently has been out on his own pursuing other projects like his SwishNYC label and his own art. McMullen's clients include Beastie Boys, Adidas, Criterion Collection and MTV, as well as his own projects like t-shirts, limited edition jewelry, and the vinyl 'Shuttlemax' toy with KidRobot. Of all the "mash-ups," one of our favorites is the shell-top Adidas/AD-AT from Star Wars. Bill is currently (2007) working for Burton and Adidas.... More

Brenb

BrenbA funky portfolio of illustrations and comics from a man who takes his illustrations seriously... (long awkward pause ala Borat) NOT! Each of Brenbs' colored drawings usually have something funny and odd about them. A regular participant with Candy Magazine, "Brenb" has a solid list of editiorial and printed works for firms and magazine in Dublin, Ireland and beyond. We liked his custom PSP covers for SONY (see thumbnail).... More

Brent Mottley

Brent MottleyBrent is an artist with many different tastes, and a wide range of design talents. Specifically we loved his illustrations, which are obviously the focal point of this portfolio. They are simple, and classic, evoking emotion through their collage-like construction which contrasts beautifully with the solitary simplicity of the subject matter. Moving on, we found that Brent also dabbles in multimedia, photography and even composes his own music. Certainly, Brent is an exemplary student of the arts with a deep interest in nature who has a talent for revealing inner beauty, and capturing the emotion of brief moments in time.... More

brutalgiftland

brutalgiftlandAn interesting portfolio site for illustrator Mark Shepherd. His work is a mix of collage-like graphic pieces, that includes illustration, graphic design and also audio, with his project, "cold_elf" sounds. The portfolio has a nice woodsy kitsch backdrop, yet in a contrast with (or perhaps because of) his somewhat rural design style and tastes, it is fused with sensible interactive elements, buttons and navigation. For us, everything about the site is warm, tasteful and inviting and the style lends itself well to the fusion of work found inside. (We even liked the entry page solution, and did not hate the pop-up in this instance of the site design). A pleasure to visit and explore.... More
