    Only good things can happen when designer Leta Sobierajski gets together with online platform Print All Over Me (PAOM) to create this fantastic series of images for their website and lookbook.

    I’ve had a soft spot for Akos Major’s photography for a long time now and his project Waters has been added to my virtual ‘like’ pile with no hesitation.

    Everyday 24 million journeys are made across the London Transport Network, which is why the unveiling of the latest fleet of London tube trains is a pretty big deal. Of all the design we come across, not much of it affects as many people as trains that millions of Londoners will use day in, day out.

    Spanish DJ duo The Zombie Kids are bringing some colour and mischief to the world with their track BOOM ft. Snoop Dogg, by enlisting the creative talents of Sawe under the direction of Tomás Peña to create a genius animated video. With hip beats and Snoop Dogg’s badass tones, the narrative sees a cheeky hoodlum, an old floppily-jowled man and a rotund police officer battling against each other, driven by their desire to be graffiti artists.

    Whatever the some naysayers may claim there is an art to collage and not everyone can do it, despite how good you think your teenage collages of cut-out red lips, Leonardo DiCaprio and puppies were. Anthony Zinonos is the perfect example of this, having featured on the site previously he’s updated his portfolio with some really cool bits and bobs.

    Sometimes I can’t help but wonder what our banknotes and coins would look like without Queen Liz’s face slapped all over them. As it looks like that won’t change anytime soon, I instead look to other countries for monetary inspiration.

    There’s something very fun and raw about Jessica Hans’ vases and her approach to ceramics in general. Based in Philadelphia, she’s had a longstanding interest in foraging and raw materials since university; this has carried over into her ceramics work, which in the past has seen her driving to clay sites, digging her materials out of the ground and then firing them in their original state to see what would happen.

    There’s something incredibly beautiful and natural about Gráinne Quinlan’s series White Crane Spread Wings where she captures the elderly community of Hong Kong practising Tai Chi throughout the city.

    If you’re feeling a bit bleary eyed this morning, grab a cup of coffee and take a look at Goncalo Viana’s beautiful illustrations to wake yourself up. Rich with colour and charming detail his work has a wonderful texture to it, as though you could reach out and actually feel the deep pigments he’s used.

    When there’s a design-themed film festival, you have a certain expectation for the branding of said festival to be executed perfectly. I imagine it’s similar to a gymnastics coach nervously watching their child protégé at their first big comp. We can all breathe a sigh of relief though as Singapore-based studio Anonymous have stuck the landing with this effortlessly cool and slick identity.

    Mark Prenderghast’s new video for Bambooman’s track Clasp is an absolute winner as the bouncy ball, everyone’s favourite childhood play thing, has a starring role. Using 43 of the most garishly coloured bouncy balls and 76 sheets of sandpaper, Mark has created a series of brilliant rhythmic sequences with the balls bouncing in unison to the beat.

  12. List

    There’s something so nice and whimsical about Lisk Feng’s illustrations that I like to imagine there’s a wonderful garden party with the most spritely of guests happening in her mind at all times.

    Hands up who’s never seen graphic design in Hebrew before? Me! I am amazed at this collection of typographic posters created by third year students on the Visual Communication course at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design in Israel. Not just because it’s all in Hebrew, which of course makes it look even cooler because I have no idea what it means, but just the diversity in the work that’s been produced.

    I’m always up for a good story, so if a visual piece of work has some sort of narrative thread running through it my eyes instantly widen with intrigue and excitement. Take illustrator Davide Bonazzi’s series Day Trippers, individually these images are done well but when seen together as a whole package, the beautifully observed moments between an elderly couple exploring a city together tells a much deeper story of love and companionship.

    Five years ago Dave Tomkins uncovered a huge archive of photographs his Grandpa, Stephen Clarke had taken over the years. With his Grandpa unable to remember where he’d shot these images, Dave was determined to find out more and started reaching out to the big wide world to find out more about the places pictured and what they look like now.

    Sometimes it can be weird when you see people doing things differently, like watching your friend cut a sandwich into rectangles instead of triangles. But creatively speaking I feel it should always be embraced with open arms, which is why Verena Michelitsch’s project Reflections created with Tobias van Schneider instantly intrigued me.

    There are some people in the world who just ooze coolness and FKA twigs is one of them, who knew Gloucstershire was able to produce such fine specimens of slick elegance?

    One of my favourite columns in the New York Times, apart from all of the important news bits of course, is Modern Love. While I’ve only been able to read the ones they publish online, it’s still a fascinating glimmer into the absolute highs and desperate lows of love. The stories and the honesty within them are what make them so compelling and because love is so universal you can somehow connect with each author.

    The only real auction action we get exposed to regularly is top programmes like Bargain Hunt or Flog It! but recently the whole auction concept has started to be used in a way that removes our cliched expectations of a collection of people (eccentric oddballs) bidding on antiques (old stuff).

    Ah Paris. Romantic, good-looking, delicious (just the food mind) and stylish. These sentiments are what we think of when dreaming about the City of Love and why not if the glove fits? Perpetuating this ideal is Paris-based Acmé Studio whose body of work is a cool collection of well-designed, well-considered and well, beautiful projects.

    We’ve featured Jessica Backhaus’ images before and while this series Jesus and the Cherries isn’t one of her most recent projects being shot back in 2004, it still feels relevant in the type of work we’re seeing more and more of these days. The difference being is Jessica has been capturing people, objects and places in this style for more than a decade now so there’s a real authenticity to her work.

    Getting any form of post is exciting but when it contains the invites for this summer’s student shows we can’t help but feel giddy and weirdly proud. So it’s time for The List to give a run down of some of this year’s most playful and inspiring invites and identities for this year’s graduates. The colours blue, red and orange are big this year, but the overall theme to these identities seems to be about creating something new and fresh, which can only be commended and celebrated.

    Here’s a few facts I read about Montreal today: it’s the second largest French-speaking city in the world after Paris, it’s on the same latitude as Venice, Italy and it’s also a UNESCO City of Design. This last little nugget of information makes perfect sense to me now after perusing the work of Pointbarre, a design collective based in the Candadian city.

    While we can appreciate the man-made beauty in modern day life with the wondrous buildings put up in our cities or the machines we build to make our lives easier, sometimes nature just trumps all of that by being effortlessly amazing.

    The game of pairs never gets old – snap is of course my favourite version because of the raw, adrenaline-pumping, thrill-inducing pace of the game. BUT Bianca Luini’s blog, Where I See Fashion is now my new fave.

  26. List

    The dutch duo Lernert & Sander are well-known for their high-concept art films, installations, music videos and adverts and it’s the execution in all of their ideas that make them stand out from the rest.

  27. List

    Having been aware of Agi & Sam’s work for a few years now it’s fantastic to see they’ve not lost their edge and continue to out do themselves. Agi Mdumulla and Sam Cotton’s AW14 collection is one of their most successful to date showing real growth and maturity, yet still retaining the pair’s playful spirit.

    Anyone familiar with Ewen Spencer’s photography knows he has an unparalleled knack for capturing youth culture at its most honest. Over the past 20 years, Ewen’s work has gained recognition from some of the most prestigious of institutions and continues to make comment on subcultures, fashion and music.

    Going through renowned graphic designer, Mirko Borsche’s portfolio is like when you decide to clear out your bedroom. Instead of an efficient tidy-up and throw-out, you spend hours pouring over every object, photo, book, handwritten note you own. The sheer volume of work Mirko has produced over the years is incredible, mostly because the standard is so high, I just hope some of his creativity seeps into my eyes while I view his work.

    Undeniably The Gentlewoman has re-defined what a woman’s fashion magazine can be by having a real opinion about the world around us. It’s all thanks to editor-in-chief Penny Martin, whose focus and clear vision has steered this biannual away from mainstream trends and explored personal style and inspiring women instead.

    Smoothies. Just the word alone sounds fun doesn’t it? But they do have an air of healthy superiority to them sometimes. I love how they dress themselves up as something mildly nutritious when really they’re just a jacked-up milkshake with green bits thrown in for extra super food points.

  32. List

    I cannot imagine having to think about running a country, constituency or even local authority. The day-to-day stress you must encounter, having to be authoritative yet not dictatorial, making changes to actually help people yet still having “cool” music taste.

    Beautiful colours are the order of the day when perusing Christina Magnussen’s fantastic portfolio. Based in Oslo, Christina’s illustration and graphic design agency Gala is a wonderful mix of books, logos, editorial illustrations, posters and magazine work, all of which have a kaleidoscopic freshness about them.

    Throughout our lives, most of us work hard to stay true to the intangible sense of self we all have. But there are times when this certainty can become rocked and we’re no longer secure in ourselves or even anything around us. These moments are often kept private, and the crisis is isolated to just the sufferer and those closest to them.

    The best things in life are spherical. But before you take my word for it, let’s consider the evidence: the Earth is spherical, the sun is, all balls in sport are, many fruits are and of course (my personal favourite) Malteasers also are.

    Summer is here, I think. I tentatively say this simply because while the sun has been brazenly showing itself more often recently, the clouds have a tendency to get jealous and rain on its parade every so often.

  37. List

    I’m one of those people that will always need a desk-tidy. No matter how hard I try, I remain ineptly disorganised in the world of stationery – pens have missing lids, a pencil will rarely get re-sharpened and I’ve not been able to draw a straight line since I lost my ruler two years ago.

  38. List

    So Maciek Pogoza, we meet again. It’s been nearly a year since we featured this guy’s work and let me tell you he is still ridiculously good and has been super busy producing even more super cool images.

  39. List

    If you’re feeling like you’ve heard, read and listened to all the stories there are then check out Jungles in Paris who document unique tales from across the globe. The brainchild of Darrell Hartman and his brother Oliver, the pair have created a fantastic website of short documentaries and photo essays inspired by new discoveries.

    There’s so much work in Japanese designer Yuma Harada’s portfolio, I hereby give you permission to while away your Friday looking through his website – you won’t be disappointed and maybe even a “wow!” will escape your lips.
