Frustrated by stupid client criticism, Irish graphic designers Mark Shanley and Paddy Treacy decided to turn their “favorite worst feedback” into posters. The guys worked together on so-called “Sharp Suits” series with a team of other ad creatives, designers, animators, directors, illustrators and more, who must’ve all appreciated a chance to let out some of their exasperation in a creative way.
The series was exhibited at The Little Green Café, Bar and Gallery in November, giving a chance to purchase an A3 poster of your choice. The guys, however, received so many orders during a 5 day exhibition, that they’ve already stopped accepting them. All the thousands of euros they claim to have raised were donated to the Temple Street Children Hospital.

A beautifully illustrated interpretation of Edward Lear’s poem, “The Owl and The Pussycat” by London based Cat Neligan. I want to turn them in to coasters and scatter them all over my coffee table!

Making history is a student project for the exercise of kinetic typography by Egoits Aulestia with the great professor Andreu Balius. I like the way the information is displayed and the way the movement creates the feeling of time passing and history being made.
We are paintbrushes
writing history with our steps and dances
which are nothing more than the traces of blood
feeding the land of the future.
You are making history

This is the stationary design for N. Daniels, a rep and photo producer in Vienna, designed by Bureau Rabensteiner. It’s simple, cool and thermo sensitive. The black color of the varnish fades at body temperature – as soon as you hold it in your hands you literally produce an image by yourself. It’s a dynamic and living design – the business cards are little polaroids with a constantly changing surface.

The High Line is an identity created for the elevated railway-turned-park in Manhattan by New York based Pentagram. It is a minimalistic identity with a clever logo which is also used as a design element.

We here at Nicework are huge fans of anything remotely doggie-related. (Okay, maybe that’s just me). Either way, have a look at this lovely collaborative papercraft project.
Back in 2009 British design studio Lazerian created a papercraft model kit of their dog mascot, Gerald. Two years later, the studio launched the Gerald Project, a collaborative art project in which they invited more than 100 artists and designers to design custom editions of the papercraft dog. The colorful collection of custom Geralds can now be purchased on Lazerian’s website. They will also be the subject of an art book that will be released at an exhibition of the project, May 17 to 19, 2013 at 60 Reade in New York City.

Einar Guðmundsson is a graphic designer born and raised in Reykjavik, Iceland. He graduated with a B.A. in Graphic Design and Visual Communication from the Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2012. These animal portrait posters are build up out of triangular wooden shapes and I think it is beautiful! I’d love to hang one in my house.
