Teagan White

&&& by Teagan White

Earlier this month on Paper Crave, Kristen shared the brilliant work of Teagan White, a designer and illustrator who recently graduated from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Teagan’s illustrations are warm and whimsical and something I could easily envision in children’s storybooks.

I browsed through Teagan’s portfolio (which I recommend you do for a good dose of inspiration) and spotted her exceptionally beautiful typographic work. I was (and still am) especially smitten by Teagan’s ampersand illustrations that she created with ink and Photoshop.

Animals in Alphabet

Letterforms by Casey Girard

Freelance illustrator and graphic designer Casey Girard from Stoneham, Massachusetts created an alphabet entirely comprised of animals. I’ve seen many animal alphabet posters, usually letters juxtaposed  with an animal. Casey’s illustrations are whimsical and clever and you can purchase a poster of the entire alphabet or individual letters from her shop.

Remember when we featured Alphabet Topography by Synoptic Office last month? It spurred an interest in me to see what else I could find relating to typography and topography, and voila! Behold the beauty of Topography Rocks, a project created jointly by artists Camilla Montejo and Catalina D’Amato.

The Decemberists by Sean Freeman

I’m floored by the work of UK designer Sean Freeman, whose work caught my eye on The Fox is Black. Sean’s bold and unique style and attention to details are leave me breathless. I was particularly drawn to a gig poster he created for the band The Decemberists. The flowers and buds look like a photorealistic arrangement.

And with brush strokes that look tactile, don’t they make you want to leave fingerprints on your computer screen?
