Luciano is quite the maverick when it comes to amazing colours and illustrations that just simply work. Simply beautiful infographics as well, in his, frankly, stunning portfolio of work spanning quite a few disciplines. His installation proposal is my favourite.

Who said boarding passes have to be hideous, difficult to use, difficult to keep pieces of card? Especially not the people here.

The London Olympics mascots has been announced! What only two?! I feel shortchanged! So what are they suppose to be?

“The two characters are based on blobs of steel used to make the girders for the Olympic stadium, and feature headlights derived from the hire light on London taxis.” No.. really….

Lots to say about The Wapping Project, a restaurant cum art space located midway between the City of London and Canary Wharf and situated inside what was once The Wapping Hydraulic Power Station, but take a look at the tree! Wow!

luminous money

A great idea to instantly recognise your money. Only thing is… these paints need light to charge up, so if we keep them in our wallet the whole time, they will all be dark by the time we actually need them, no? via Yanko Design
