Alessio Sabbadini

Alessio Sabbadini-1-Design Crush

 

Alessio Sabbadini‘s flat graphic style is just my cup of tea. The Milan-based communication designer is fantastic, each project perfectly muted and better than the last. (And of course, totally informative.)

Frank Chimero

Frank Chimero-1-Design Crush

 

I’ve followed and been a fan of Frank Chimero ever since first joining Twitter waaaaaaay back in 2009. It’s been a blast to watch his career as a designer/illustrator/writer evolve and I always look forward to what’s next. The latest is Frank’s Colorfield series, available as prints. And if you’re a designer I highly recommended picking up a copy of his book, The Shape of Design.

Enter Redesignyl + Win

Redesignyl-Design Crush

 

Last week I dusted off my artist smock (aka opened Illustrator) and teamed up with Alamy, one of the world’s largest online photo libraries, to launch a super fun design contest – Redesignyl. Designers are being asked to reimagine 1 of 16 iconic album covers using Alamy images as the basis for their design, you get to choose up to three Alamy images to use for free. Once submitted your design will be displayed on Redesignyl‘s page where you can go right now to get started. Get your masterpiece submitted by December 18th so that I, along with the other three judges, can choose yours as the best. There will be eight prizes, including an incredible new turntable for the winner!

PS: Can you tell which album cover I reimagined?
