Su-Jeong NAM

Su-Jeong NAM-1-Design Crush

 

I’ve always preferred my yard (landscaping seems like a stretch) to be more on the wild side than the pristine. It fits both my mind and my homeownership skills, and the work of Su-Jeong NAM gives me the same vibe. Her illustrations show off her vision of harmony in the world and its minute details.

The Roommate Book

The Roommate Book-1-Design Crush

 

For *most* of us the roommate phase of life isn’t all that long. College, your 20s, and then you’re more than likely ready to strike out on your own or live with a significant other. My pal Becky Simpson is an amazing illustrator whose latest book – aptly named The Roommate Book – provides a non-serious look at how to live with a friend (or total stranger). Flip through for a look at comical pie charts, hypotheticals, illustrations, and brief essays along with some nuggets of wisdom!

Allison Kunath

Allison Kunath-1-Design Crush

 

A mixed bag of illustration projects from Venice, California-based Allison Kunath. The thing they all have in common? An underlying theme of connectivity, each one exploring different aspects of the word, such as connection to self, connection to others, and connection to nature.

Abbey Lossing

Abbey Lossing-1-Design Crush

 

Brooklyn-based illustrator and designer Abbey Lossing has such a fun style, I love it. A lot of her work comes from her day job over at BuzzFeed, but her best advice to artists trying to get out there is to “make lots of art and put it on the internet” and I have to agree. Pick up one of Abbey’s prints in her shop!
