Nieves has yet again teamed up with Geoff McFetridge to release a new book if his work simply titled Recent Work. The book is only 16 pages but contains images from the work he did for the Where The Wild Things Are film, so it’s probably got some pretty great stuff in it. I have all of his other Nieves books and they’re all really wonderful, printed on thick paper and the color quality is amazing.

For some reason I keep getting drawn to these more abstract/collage type artists and British designer Pandayoghurt is no exception. Using computer graphics he creates all kinds of random (but beautiful) imagery that kind of have a very contemporary 80′s vibe to them. He also uses lots of bright colors with punches of black to offset it. Really great stuff.

My buddy Jean Jullien sent me an email yesterday morning letting me know he directed a new video for his brother’s band Niwouinwouin and boy is it a doozy. By the way, how the hell do you say the name of the band? I imagine it sounds like a laser beam. Anyhow, the video is for the song Catastrophe, so obviously Jean has a ton of monsters running around destroying everything in their path.
Mr. Jullien is really turning out to be quite an amazing talent, I love the handmade feel of the video and the lighting effects are really rad. I also think the song is pretty awesome as well, it definitely makes me want to get up and dance. Good job guys.
Unintentionally I’ve got a Spanish vibe going with my posts, though the next post will have to do with the French, so that’s close enough. Ara Pizza is a little pizza place in Barcelona which was designed by architect Pablo Téllez to help invigorate this previously cut and dry space. Before it was just a simple, boxy space, but Mr. Téllez has filled it with triangular prisms painted a bunch of different colors, giving it a rather trippy appearance.
It’s still a rather simple space overall, filled with Dr. Yes chairs and minimal tables but the addition of that… vortex? It really makes the space seem like something unusual and fun.

Pan Pan Atelier, located in Valencia, Spain, got a wonderful bit of branding from Spanish designer Rocío Martinavarro. The new bakery’s pattern was inspired by ears of wheat, giving a nod to the ingredient that makes many of the things Pan Pan creates possible. It’s a nice shape that’s complimented well by the different custom typefaces used throughout the identity. I love the effect of the browns with the white, it has a nice, contemporary feel without being overly earthy or hippy feeling. The space is pretty rad as well, I really like the marble counter and usually I’m not a big fan of marble.
