Incredible design and photography by Paul Lee Design.  I’m mostly impressed and inspired by his dreamlike, fantastical photographs and cubistic imagery.  His style translates well on the web as well.  Very fresh.

Most of these photographs were captured in Prague, Czech Republic. Very retro-tastic sign design.

Evolution of the Mobile Phone

Mobile phones have gotten smaller and more compact over the years, but I bet it won’t be long before the brick phone is back!

I Am Always Hungry is a design studio in New Orleans.  Sucker for French films and influenced by Robert Rauschenberg, this studio creates amazing work including some mind-blowing creative movie posters. Not only that, their flash website totally kicks ass.

Interesting transformation of both brand identities. Turner Duckworth rebranded Coca-Cola in 2009 to celebrate it’s original, classic design of the past.  Arnell Group recently redesigned Pepsi’s logo.  I prefer Coke’s new design just like I prefer the taste.

Incredible photographer.  It really is amazing when you see colors and light in photographs that you don’t realize you see in real life.

Check out his work.
