How illustrator Johanna Basford sold over 1.7 million copies of her colouring books for adults

Johanna Basford is a Scottish illustrator I've been inspired by for some years now. It's lovely to see that so many other people around the globe are enjoying her beautiful inky work, all hand drawn. I think every child, adult, home, studio or office should have a copy of her Enchanted Forest or Secret Garden to loose themselves in! :)

The artists discusses her incredible success with best-selling colouring books, Secret Garden and Enchanted Forest.

Well, here are several loves of mine, all rolled into one! Chocolate (of course), design and illustration. This beautiful eye catching creative is illustrated by a selection of French artists. I'd certainly find it hard to resist this fun chocolate art. "Ooh, la la!"

Le chocolat des Français is a line of French chocolate bars that have a playful, and unique brand identity featuring a variety of amazing illustrations on its packaging.

Virgin America Safety Video #VXsafetydance

The fact that I've even watched Virgin Atlantics in-flight safety video without even being sat on a plane, is testimony itself! I'm sorry that I have a very short attention span during this period of a flight, having seen so many (I'm lucky I fly so often). I think this is excellently executed, fun and certainly keeps you watching. Enjoy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtyfiPIHsIg
Drafted director John M. Chu and dancers, musicians, and choreographers from American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance. Five minutes of fun!

3 Ad Agencies Try to Rebrand Feminism. Did Any of Them Get It Right?

An intriguing article promoting the use of #advertising and #design in the promotion of women's rights. Its always very interesting to read comments below articles...

Does feminism need rebranding? Elle U.K. thinks so, and invited three British ad agencies—Brave, Mother and Wieden + Kennedy—to work on it with three feminist groups. The results, published in November's issue, are posted below.

British Airways: Plane Detecting Billboards

The British Airways LookUp billboards in Piccadilly Circus, have some pretty cool tech behind them. Allowing a simple, yet very effective story to be told. As British Airways planes fly over the digital outdoor sites on the Heathrow flight path, trigger advertising creative showing real-time data of that plane, including destination and flight number; including a weather feed even reads the cloud height to ensure the plane is visible before showing the advert!
Genius advertising courtesy of Ogilvy, London, UK.

I've always been a fan of this pot of gold! :)

Yesterday I found the latest Christmas tin for the famous British Brand 'Tate & Lyle' wandering around my local supermarket. Designed by Brand Creative agency 'Design Bridge'.

I think their beautifully tasteful packaging, certainly graces the contents.

The new festive tin includes a Christmas pudding, traditional sixpence, holly, crackers and filigree. It follows on from the designs marking the Queen's Diamond jubilee and Halloween. There were still a couple of the cheeky Halloween treacle's next the golden syrup so I thought I'd share them all again for you to see.

"Goldfish Salvation" Riusuke Fukahori

I’ve had a passion for Asian art for many years now; it’s the fluidity that just draws me in. I think you too will also appreciate these amazingly beautiful works by Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori. He creates these life life-like pieces from acrylic paint using layers of resin. I find his detailing is just incredible, this technique is wonderful. Just watch this video and I'm sure you will agree.

Malika Favre is one of my favourite illustrators. She is the talent behind Carluccio's 2013 Xmas packaging after Irving & Co asked her to collaborate with them after seeing her 'Hide and Seek' exhibition. http://www.malikafavre.com/Carluccio-s-1
Please have a look around her website and see why I love her contemporary work.
